Melanie Lynskey had too much chemistry with Paul Giamatti

Lynskey and Giamatti starred together in the 2011 drama “Win Win,” but the “Yellowjackets” actress is now set to lead a rom-com with the “Big Fat Liar” alum.

Melanie Lynskey says which co-star she had the steamiest chemistry with.

In an interview with SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw at the 92nd Street Y, Lynskey revealed that her dream rom-com casting would be opposite her Win Win co-star Paul Giamatti. The Yellow Jackets star played a supporting role in the 2011 sports drama, directed by Giamatti.

“Years ago I did a movie with Paul Giamatti and a few scenes had to be cut because the chemistry was too much,” Lynskey revealed. “And the director, Tom McCarthy, who I trust a lot, just said, ‘That’s not what we’re looking for at that moment.’

He added: “I’ve wanted a romantic comedy with Paul Giamatti ever since!”

Lynskey said: “At the moment all I can think about is doing comedy. And the next thing is not a comedy. I can’t say what it is, but it’s another tragic thing.”

His next project takes place during the Holocaust, based on the novel “The Tattooist of Auschwitz”. Starring “The Little Mermaid” actor Jonah Hauer-King.

Lynskey also recently collaborated with her real-life partner Jason Ritter on Hulu’s true crime limited series “Candy,” HBO’s “The Last of Us,” and Season 2 of “Yellowjackets.”

“I think he would do anything.” He really would. I mean, I want them to cast whoever they want,” Lynskey said of Ritter joining the viral Showtime series. “I will never push my husband on them. But they should know that he would do it in a heartbeat.” Ritter will join the series in an as yet unknown role.

Lynskey also talked about how appearing in the rom-com “Sweet Home Alabama” and the sitcom “Two and a Half Men” influenced herself. “I really want to represent an interesting person on screen who doesn’t care about how her belly looks,” said The Last of Us actress, adding, “If more people looked like me (on screen), I wouldn’t have to talk about it so much. “

Her husband, Ritter, applauded Lynskey’s Internet shaming and continued to post Twitter In January 2022: “If anyone has any more unsolicited comments about *anyone’s* body, feel free to write them in permanent ink on your own forehead and the swan can dive right into the sun.”
