Michelle Yeoh says hot dog finger scene was ‘most beautiful love story’ in ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’

  • In an interview with Variety, Michelle Yeoh shared her experiences with filming some of the most bizzare scenes in the wonderfully weird A24 film “Everything Everywhere All At Once.”
  • Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert (known collectively as the Daniels) managed to find ways to keep the action film veteran on her toes with raunchy setpieces.
  • “[The Daniels] are really going to fling around dildos in a fight. Going into it, I couldn’t imagine it, but I believed in them and I trusted them,” Yeoh told Variety.
  • However, the scene that left the actors with the most bruises was also the film’s most intimate — the hotdog fingers make-out session between alternate universe variants of Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis’ characters.
  • The scene was meant to provide a flourish of love and affection in what Yeoh describes as “the most beautiful love story in that universe.”
