Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson became fast friends on the set of Jungle Cruise — but the two costars still struggled to get a central scene right for the film.

On Wednesday, they sat down with Access for an interview about their upcoming Disney film and jokingly said their kiss scene in the film was probably their hardest one to do.

"I literally had to turn to Jaume [Collet-Serra], our director, and said, 'How many of these do you need?' " Blunt, 38, said while joking. "I had to get drunk for it." 

Johnson, 49, laughed and said, "Wow," before adding, "I had to get high for it!" 

Filming the movie was "nostalgic" for the pair and the crew, Blunt revealed, as she compared Jungle Cruise to being similar to other films such as Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone.

"It was so warm and joyful," Blunt said of filming. "I think we all felt nostalgic about making it." 

Disney's upcoming movie finds Blunt's Lily Houghton, a researcher aiming to find Lagrimas de Cristal, hiring Johnson's character, Frank, a river guide tasked with guiding her to it.

In May, Johnson announced the movie, which was delayed a year due to the COVID-19 health crisis, will debut both in theaters and on Disney+ on July 30.

Johnson shared the news in an Instagram video, revealing that the film will premiere on Disney+ with Premier Access (a one-time $29.99 rental fee for subscribers).
