In the candid interview, the award-winning stars spoke about working on emotional scenes since the emergence of #MeToo. 

#MeToo is a social media movement against sexual harassment which grew following a wave of allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Asked whether there’s been a change in love scenes since the campaign, the Killer Joe star shared: ‘I couldn’t answer that but I can talk about my experience with Anne.

‘Whatever the scene is about, it’s 100% about that scene. We don’t bring the outside world into that scene’, he added.

Echoing his comments, the Dark Knight Rises actress interjected: ‘We made this film, which as you mentioned, has a lot of vulnerable scenes in it. 

‘We made this film before #MeToo became so front and centre, I’m very proud to say we wouldn’t have done anything different’, she explained.

The pair went on to tease each other about using their Oscars on set, following the recent 91st Academy Awards ceremony.

Anne, who scooped Best Supporting Actress for her role in 2012’s Les Misérables, joked: ‘Matthew puts his just out of frame. Sometimes I see him staring off very intensely, and he’s staring at his Oscar.’

Making a playful quip in response, Matthew, who won the Best Actor gong for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club in 2014, laughed: ‘It’s in my contract, it’s always just 2ft out of my scene. People just have to deal with it.’

Anne and Matthew previously co-starred as astronauts in Christopher Nolan’s critically-acclaimed 2014 sci-fi film Interstellar, which amassed $677.5M at the global box office.

Meanwhile, Larger Than Life star Matthew recently admitted he used to have a crush on Serenity co-star Diane Lane.

The actor, who shares children Levi, 10, Vida, nine, and Livingston, six, with wife Camila Alves, 37,  said it was a ‘privilege’ to work with the 54-year-old because he had a crush on her when he was a teenager. 

During an appearance on Entertainment Tonight, he shared: ‘I had a crush on her since a film she was in – Lonesome Dove. That may have been almost preteens for me, so [now] I get to work with her. 

‘She looks about the same as she did back then. And she’s one of our great actors that we have in show business, in the business of storytelling. It was a privilege I got to work with her.’
