Michelle Yeoh Says The Hot Dog Finger Scene Was ‘The Most Beautiful Love Story’ In ‘Everything, Everywhere, All At Once’


Michelle Yeoh has shared what it was like filming some of the most bizarre scenes in the wonderfully weird A24 movie “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

Even with Yeoh’s extensive experience with action-packed films, from playing a Bond Girl to starring in many of the most iconic martial arts movies, the director duo behind “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has managed to keep on his toes on the board. Daniel Kwan and Daniel Schienert (known collectively as the Daniels) would unapologetically bring steamy sets, she revealed in an interview with Variety.

“[The Daniels] are really going to throw dildos in a fight. Going into it, I couldn’t imagine it, but I believed in them and trusted them,” Yeoh told Variety. “When you do something like that, you have to believe it, otherwise it just doesn’t work.”

The aforementioned sex toy fight scene was Yeoh’s favorite to film due to its sheer madness.

“This whole sequence of Jamie chasing us to the character of Jenny Slate with her dog, it was so ridiculously absurd and funny,” Yeoh said. “It was like being on a roller coaster and you don’t know where the next drop is.”

However, the scene that left the actors with the most bruises was also the film’s most intimate – the hot dog finger makeup session between alternate universe variants of Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis’ characters.

“This is the scene where [Jamie Lee Curtis and I are] go there with our hot dog fingers, and these things are like pipes. They’re made to fit, but they’re made of silicone,” Yeoh said. “The next day she came back and was covered in bruises and I asked her if she had had an accident. She had all these bruises on her thighs from going there.

While watching the two passionately suck mustard and ketchup on their hot dog fingers, it felt like something out of a demented fever dream, the scene was meant to provide a blossoming of love and affection in this which Yeoh describes as “the most beautiful love story in this universe.”

“That’s where I believe filmmaking is complete collaboration on every level. It’s never about one person or two people or anything. It’s true collaboration,” said Yeoh. “And when you work with someone like Jamie, we looked at each other and said, ‘Let’s go.'”
