The way Leo and that bear rough and tumble. It’s like are they gonna do it? Are they just scratching at each other? That’s my favorite part about the rom-com is the sense of play.”

The actress, meanwhile, chimed in and said it is “the greatest love story I’ve ever seen.” The comparison is already getting weird at this point, but Powell added:

[You’re] waiting for someone to be mauled, and I feel like you and I have that same chemistry that Leo and that bear have in that movie.”

While Powell has a bizarre way of making associations with his movie and Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Revenant, Sweeney admitted in her interview with Entertainment Tonight that she had fun filming the project:

When all that stuff happened, you know, publicly, it felt disorienting and unfair. But what I’m realizing is that’s just a part of this gig now.”

Photos of Powell and Sweeney spending downtime together away from the movie set sparked the rumors after fans saw them taking a trip to the zoo, grabbing coffee together, and exploring Australia’s central district.
