They both looked back at their on-screen kissing experiences, not all of which were great. While speaking about her experience kissing co-star Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson said, “The thing is, every time I kiss McConaughey, it's like, I mean, it's like there's just something happening and there's like snot or wind, or things are just... like when we were kissing in the end of Fool's Gold, we're like in the ocean, we like had the plane crash. He just had snot all over his face.”
Gwyneth asked Kate if McConaughey gave her ‘brother energy’; after which Gwyneth recalled what it was like kissing Robert Downey Jr in the Iron Man and Avengers franchises.
“Like with Robert, like when I kissed him and I was like, 'You've got to be kidding me,'" she said. Gwyneth Paltrow then added, “This is literally like kissing my brother." ALSO READ: Robert Downey Jr AKA Iron Man Is 'DONE' With Marvel Cinematic Universe; 'I Hung Up My Guns'
