Matthew (McConaughey) and Kate (Hudson). These people that worked together over and over and over again. It’s when you find somebody that you have a great creative partnership with and somebody you can really trust, and somebody that treats the crew well and her costars well.”

He continued, “And that you really see the vision for the movie, and she’s such a smart businesswoman. You want to keep doing that. There’s no reason to do it any other way.”

In a previous interview with Vogue Philippines, actor Glen Powell shared his views on working in the 2023 romantic comedy movie Anyone but You. 

Powell recalled his time working on the film set, saying, “The wild part about being in a rom-com is all the ideas of love are swirling through your head while these big romantic moments are happening.” 

He continued, “This is not a rom-com that’s meant for two hours, and you forget about it. This is a theatrical rom-com that really breathes with the universal language of love and scope, that you haven’t seen in a long time.”
