Nat sat down with Gia for a one-on-one with SCENE magazine and talked about the time that he and James Kilmer (Val’s son) crashed a wedding and bah mitzvah together, trying to date Emma Roberts, and flirting with James Franco.

Check out some exclusive highlights from the interview.

Gia Coppola: How was it like working with Emma Roberts?
Nat Wolff: When I was younger, I had a huge crush on Emma Roberts. And she was 14. She asked my manager for my number when I was 12, then nothing happened. She never contacted me, but it was really exciting. We ended up seeing each other for three years at different events. And you know, I hadn’t seen her again until we did the movie, but I was always a huge fan of hers. She’s awesome. Really crazy, but really awesome. Amazing good actress in a way that she doesn’t seem like she’s acting. She’s so natural.

GC: Let’s talk about Jack Kilmer. You guys had a weird adventure the first time you met, right?
NW: I’ve never been set up on a blind date with a guy before. We ended up sneaking into a wedding. Like in Wedding Crashers. And it was a big building that had different parties, so there was a bar mitzvah and a wedding. We went into this wedding and started ordering drinks. Someone was like “Were you invited to this wedding?” And we were like, “Yeah, but we gotta go.” So, then we went to the bar mitzvah, and we started taking strawberries and dipping them in chocolate. But, we were there for two hours. And we were just trouble. It was awesome.

GC: How was it working with James Franco?
NW: It was good. When we did one scene together, I was like, “I want to really frank him out.” So I started improvising and flirting with him and saying weird shit and he was like, “You’re really weird.” And I was like, “That’s awesome.”

The new issue of SCENE will be available online and on newsstands tomorrow (April 30, 2014).
