Your Place or Mine is a new romantic comedy from Netflix featuring Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher in the lead but their red carpet body language suggested the opposite.

The pair came under criticism from fans on Twitter as they analyzed their awkward red carpet moments during the movie's premieres.

Fans Weigh In On Their Red Carpet Appearance

Witherspoon and Kutcher upset fans with their behavior on the red carpet as they looked uncomfortable interacting with each other. For a romantic comedy, people expected them to show chemistry and sell their films.

The Awkward Red Carpet Moment

Unfortunately, they did the reverse and made people question their on-screen chemistry. One viral tweet said they needed to go to the "Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain School of Promotion."

The tweet referenced the chemistry between the Scenes from a Marriage co-stars, who had fans wondering if they had an affair.

Witherspoon cleared the misconception in an interview saying she enjoyed working with Kutcher. They bonded over similar interests, from football to pets, food, and children.

The Worst Promo Chemistry

The online reviews were brutal with people questioning their ability to translate romance on screen. One person said Witherspoon and Kutcher looked like they don't know each other.

They looked bored with each other like they'd rather be any place else than on that red carpet.

Conspiracy Theories

Some people defended the pair saying those viral awkward pictures weren't the only ones from the premieres. Some shots showed Witherspoon and Kutcher laughing together.

Someone started a conspiracy theory saying the movie's chemistry could spark affair rumors hence their "ploy" to distract during press.

Some Goofy Moments

Kutcher and Witherspoon joked about their height difference during a photocall in L.A. However, their outfit choices also sparked fan criticism as Witherspoon chose corporate styles while her co-lead decided to be laid back.

The style differences showed a lack of synergy between them as they often looked like they were headed to different events.

Your Place Or Mine?

Your Place or Mine is a story of best friends turned lovers, with Witherspoon playing the single mother living in a small town while Kutcher, her bestfriend, lives in the city. They swapped lives for a week to give Witherspoon's character a chance to break from her hectic life.
