Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson met in an escape room

If you’re wondering how Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson nailed their on-screen chemistry in their new movie, Meet Cute, assume their confidence-inspiring experience helped the first time they met. Cuoco appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on September 20 to promote “Meet Cute,” a new Peacock rom-com in which she plays Sheila, a girl who discovers a time machine and begins to travel through time to “fix” them. Bits of the date she had with Gary (Davidson) last night. things apparently Go away.

Cuoco revealed to Fallon that she had never met Davidson before they were cast in Meet Cute, so she set out to get to know him. “He was in LA for a few days and I was like, ‘Maybe we should meet for coffee’ … like I never met him.” Davidson’s alternative suggestion of where they should meet certainly made an impression. “I find out he’d like to meet me, but he’d like to meet me in an escape room, and I was like, ‘You know what, Pete? Not everyone needs to end up on TMZ.’ I wonder why can’t anything be normal?”

Still, Cuoco agreed with the out-of-the-box idea. “So, we have [the escape room]. Me, the director and Pete. I met him in an escape room.” Although Cuoco isn’t particularly fond of escape rooms, she said that overall it was a fruitful experience. Apparently he still is, even though he just left Saturday Night Live after seven years on the show. Funny as always.” You can really learn a lot about someone in an escape room. . . Pete just laughs a lot. I don’t even know if he knows what he’s laughing at. He’s a happy guy. Very happy.”

And now Cuoco has a trick up her sleeve when it comes to building trust with her future co-stars. When Fallon asked her if she was planning on going to another escape room in the future, she replied: “Yes indeed my next co-star I’m going to take him to this escape room and I’m going to look like a genius, because I get out and I know exactly how to get out. So thank you Pete!”
