To promote their new culinary movie Burnt — which follows a chef (Cooper) who is rebuilding his career after drug addiction cost him his first restaurant — the costars took to Twitter on Friday to answer people’s food-related questions, all while giggling at each other like besties and taking selfie-style videos.
First, they were asked their favorite foods. Miller says she’s partial to spaghetti Bolognese.
“How do you make it?” Cooper asks.
“With meat and tomato and garlic and onion and spicy spices,” Miller says. (Yes, that’s the official recipe.) Miller barely has to ask Cooper his favorite food — she already knows it’s pizza.
Mario Batali joined in on the fun, asking the two actors when they’ll be opening a restaurant of their own.
Their answer: Soon. (But they’ll need his help.)
The Q&A takes a turn for the serious when a Twitter user asked them what their last meal on earth would be. As it turns out, they’re planning on spending it together, eating the same meal. Swoon.
“My mum’s roast chicken gravy with rice — not potatoes — and a special gravy that I make,” Miller responded, without any hesitation.
“Can I have that too?”
“OK, then I’ll have that too.”
