Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron star opposite one another as the most unlikely of love interests in Long Shot.

But were here for it.

Seth is peak Seth Rogen as he plays idealistic journalist Fred Flarsky, who becomes Charlizes speechwriter, as she portrays Secretary Of State Charlotte Field.

Yes, that sentence makes complete sense. See, two characters who just shouldnt work but in this weird and wacky world of romantic comedies, it just comes together.

The two were quizzed by Metro.co.uk to see just how close they got as producers and stars of the film and we have to say they go together like peas in a pod.

From both finding the process of being given a pop quiz extremely stressful (sorry guys) to shouting the others hard work ethic on set.

Director Jonathan Levine said all he could do was sit back and watch the two do their thing.

I knew Seth and this character were a great fit, and for Charlize what I love about the history of dramatic comedies there is this rich and illustrious history of taking two characters and juxtaposing them and seeing their rhythms and differences. Theyre such a great fit, he told us ahead of the films release this week.

You can see Charlize is such a comedy fan. She loves to take risks and be challenged so her desire to challenge herself made me think she had what it takes to be a great comedian.

Just to see her do this and so amazingly well and make it look so easy was incredibly exciting for me, I just sat back and watched. They make me look good.

The actors took off to Colombia to film scenes, as they travelled the world within the confines of the script, as Charlotte made her dash for the White House known.

Cartagena was where they spent time, and both Seth and Charlize agreed it was the highlight of the filming.

There was a lot of love for the way they both went about putting the film together, as they told us it was the hard work that they most respect in one another.

Which, in turn, meant the whole thing wasnt a hard working slog, we suppose.

But with a caveat, from Seth who was perhaps put on the spot by us.

There are better answers, just so you know, he told us, as Charlize laughed.
