-I wanted to ask you.
-Yes. -There’s sort of a very
memorable bathroom scene in the film.
-Oh, yes. -And you actually posted a photo
of — this is Austria. -It is. This is where
we shot “Downhill.” -Whoo!
-Whoo! Yes! [ Laughter ]
-We have an Austrian. -Austria!
-Whoo! -This is an actual sign
in Austria. -It is, in fact.
-This person’s gonna regret “Whoo-ing.”
[ Laughter ] Those are things
not to do in the bathroom. -You’re gonna have to
zoom in on this. -Yeah. So that —
That’s a real weird one. -Little tighter.
-Not like the crouch on the top there,
and then — [ Laughter ]
…and then that just seems like, what do you —
-Yeah. -What do you think
the message is there? -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -Yeah. “Please do not give [bleep]
to this bathroom.” [ Laughter ] And that is an actual sign.
-It’s a real issue in Austria. [ Laughter ]
She knows. -And she will know.
[ Laughter ] As she will attest to.
-Yeah. Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] -Did you —
I mean, it’s beautiful. -You can see,
I was really confused. -Yeah.
[ Laughter ] -‘Cause I wasn’t — I had never
heard of these rules before. [ Laughter ] And, anyway, I had to, like,
rethink everything. -Yeah.
I don’t think it’s confused. I think it’s, like,
your best-laid plans are thrown out the window.
[ Laughter ] -But I find that confusing.
-Right. -It’s wrecking —
It’s ruining your mind. -You have a whole day planned
that’s gonna end in a bathroom in Vienna —
-Yeah. Yeah. Did you get to explore?
It’s such a beautiful place. Did you get around, Will?
Did you see other parts of — -Uh, well, I — we got to ski…
-Yeah. -…every weekend that we were
off, which was incredible. -And we got to ski
while we were filming, too. -Sure.
-We did it all the time. -I got lost in Switzerland.
-Okay, so — [ Laughter ]
-No joke, yeah. -But the film’s in Austria.
-The film’s in Austria. -Tell what happened.
[ Laughter ] -But the one resort
that we were in, the second resort we were in,
called Ischgl, shares the border, and I —
there was little signs, like, “This way, Switzerland.”
I’m like, “Let’s do it.” [ Laughter ] So I’m by myself.
I’m skiing down. I was like,
“This is so lovely,” and… But I don’t see
a chairlift back at all. [ Laughter ] And I end up in a small town
in Switzerland. [ Laughter ] Gone for like three hours.
[ Laughter ] I have to figure out, like,
a bus and a tram. -And you had no money.
-I had no money. [ Laughter ]
‘Cause I’m not skiing with any. And the Swiss are nasty.
[ Laughter ] You don’t want to —
to get cornered by a bunch of Swiss,
chanting at me. -Bad people.
-Pelting me with Rolex watches. [ Laughter ] Hard chocolate candies.
[ Laughter ] -So very —
-It was harrowing. -Yeah, it sounds harrowing.
And you made your way back? -I mean, I felt like a big boy.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ] -Quietly, I’m on a bus,
I’m like, “Do you know
how to get back to Ischgl?” They’re like,
“Yes. Just follow us.” And so I followed
this group of people. -Did you have —
Were you more worried about making it back or the fact
that you’d be gone so long that the people
in the film would notice? -I was panicked because I would
have to call production to come pick me up
in Switzerland. [ Laughter ]
Which, from where we were — is like a three-hour drive.
-Yeah. -So six hours round trip,
and then — -Yeah.
-…they would be bummed, and I would have
committed resources that were needed elsewhere
to picking me up. -Who is the better skier
of the two of you? -Julia. Yeah.
I’ll just say it. -All right.
[ Laughter ] -I’ll own it.
I’ll own it. -She’s very good.
-However, Nat Faxon, who’s one of our
two co-directors, is the best skier.
-He’s the best. -Yes, he is.
-And would the crew sort of say you’re all equally good,
or was the crew honest? -Well, if they were smart,
they would. -Yeah.
-Yeah. -But —
-You had to say that in front of the producer.
-But actually, the crew were — We had the most amazing crew
because a bunch of them had to ski, of course,
to make this movie, and ski backwards
with cameras on their backs. -Yeah.
-Oh, man. -So, I mean, the whole thing
was just — -That would bum me out
if I was maybe just an okay skier
trying to do my part. -Yeah.
-And thinking, like, over the course of the film, “I’m getting
a little bit better,” but every time you go out,
some guy’s skiing backwards with a camera.
-Totally. -“I’m not good at this.”
-At all. -It does sharpen your focus,
when you’re skiing on camera and the guy’s skiing backwards, and having conversations
and pulling focus. [ Laughter ]
-Pulling focus. Talking to you in an ear thing.
[ Laughter ] -And just, like — and you’re
like, “Okay, don’t wreck. Don’t wreck.”
[ Laughter ] -Yeah, exactly.
-Yeah, it’s — it’s… -We’re gonna bring out
the writers and directors, Nat and Jim, right after this.
-Oh, my God. -And we’re gonna talk some more.
-Okay. -We’re gonna have a bunch of you
out here together. Julia and Will.
