Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney are gearing up for the release of their new rom-com, Anyone But You, which is releasing on December 22, 2023. The sizzling chemistry between the two actors’ witnesses in the trailer has fans excited for the film. The two actors are now promoting the film, and they revealed many behind the scenes stories about their filming experiences.

The two spoke to Variety about working with each other and also revealed some embarrassing and dangerous moments they encountered during the shoot of the film. Powell specially pointed to a scene where he had to remove his shorts to remove spiders in front of Sweeney at the side of a cliff.

Powell claimed that it was dangerous to strip n*ked near a cliff in addition to being awkward in doing it in front of his co-star. However, he ultimately learned to embrace it and have fun in the scene. He said,


“You just have to grip it and rip it on a scene like that. You know you’re not going to leave that filming day looking cool, so you just have to embrace it. Taking your clothes off on the side of a cliff in a hurry is not safe either. But it’s a really fun scene, so it was all worth it”

Sweeny, in the same interview, also revealed an instance where she got bit by a spider during filming and co-star helping her remove it from her. It seems the two actors were fully supportive of each other during moments of vulnerability and danger during the filming of the movie.

Glen Powell starred as Hangman in Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick. He was certainly a scene stealer in the film, and his chemistry with Miles Teller was praised by critics and audiences. He is currently promoting his new rom-com film Anyone But You and in an interview opened up about the possibility of him appearing in a possible Top Gun 3.


Speaking to ExtraTV, Powell revealed that he is open to returning as Hangman in a potential third film. He claimed that Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have his number, and they can call him anytime when a third film materializes. He said,

“I talk to Tom all the time, but we don’t talk about ‘Top Gun 2.’ He and Jerry [Bruckheimer], if they want to make ‘Top Gun 2’ — or ‘3,’ technically — he has my number.”

It remains to be seen whether a third Top Gun ever happens in the future. Powell premiered another film, Hit Man, directed by Richard Linklater at the 2023 Venice Film Festival. The film has been acquired by Netflix and is expected to be released sometime in 2024.
