Drinking Buddies costars Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson put in serious work to prepare for their roles as co-workers at a microbrewery. The movie's director, Joe Swanberg, taught them to handcraft beer in his Chicago basement, and the actors downed (quite a few) real pints as they filmed their scenes. We sat down with Olivia and Jake in LA recently to talk about shooting the movie sans any script and slightly under the influence. They also shared their personal opinions on whether men and women can successfully stay platonic friends — something their characters attempt with mixed success in the movie. Drinking Buddies hits theaters on Aug. 23.
