While the movie “Jungle Cruise” may not have garnered widespread acclaim, one aspect of the film that garnered attention was the undeniable chemistry between the lead actors, Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. On and off-camera, the two shared a remarkable rapport that resonated with audiences.
Their promotional interviews showcased the fun they had while filming, but a particular exchange during a press tour for the Disney theme park ride-inspired movie went too far, leading to a surprising twist and prompting Disney to intervene.
In a recent Vanity Fair profile of Dwayne Johnson, he revealed that he and Blunt found themselves in trouble due to an unforeseen joke involving anal beads.
Dwayne Johnson’s Unconstrained Humor
Contrary to the perception of him as a proper gentleman, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shown a side of himself that fans have grown to appreciate—an adventurous and light-hearted sense of humor. Whether engaging in witty banter with Kevin Hart or Emily Blunt, it’s evident that Johnson knows how to have a good time and push the boundaries of comedy. Blunt previously acknowledged this aspect of him, stating, “He has no boundaries whatsoever… He’s incredibly polite, but he’s also willing to say things that will leave you astonished with laughter… I think there’s a rebellious kid inside him that refuses to be restrained.”
With their burgeoning friendship, Johnson and Blunt felt at ease crossing lines they might have been cautious about with others. This familiarity is what led them into hot water when they engaged in a playful exchange during an interview, trying to outdo each other.
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s Provocative Banter
Public appearances and media interactions play a significant role in generating excitement for a movie. Johnson and Blunt, recognizing this, aimed to keep things light and entertaining during their press tour. However, their banter took an unexpected turn, leading to repercussions with Disney. The duo had shared an enjoyable experience filming “Jungle Cruise” and had become close friends.
Both actors possess a natural comedic flair, and when asked what they would bring to the forest, their answers took an audacious turn. Johnson suggested that Blunt bring Vagisil, unaware of the swift comeback she had in store. Blunt humorously responded, suggesting Johnson carry anal beads. While this exchange evoked laughter from those present, it failed to align with Disney’s expectations. Johnson recounted the aftermath, stating, “We received immediate feedback: ‘We love your chemistry and the energy you bring, but could you dial it back a bit on the anal beads?'”
When Johnson and Blunt collaborate, their unique brand of humor can be perplexing and misunderstood by some. In compliance with Disney’s request, they adjusted their banter, but ironically, the joke now lives on in the annals of the internet, forever immortalized due to the reaction it received from the production company.
