In a really, really messed up way.” Read: Breaking into people’s homes, dressing in their clothes, and getting frisky. And the pair had just as interesting of a relationship together when the cameras weren’t rolling. “He’s so silly,” she told us of working with the Oscar-winning actor. “He’s the silliest person I’ve ever met, and we had such a good time.
