  • Michael Cera spoke to Rolling Stone about him and Aubrey Plaza getting married in Las Vegas.

  • He said they were going to divorce “right away”.

  • The goal was that they could then refer to each other as “ex-husband” and “ex-wife”.

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’ co-stars Michael Cera and Aubrey Plaza nearly exchanged vows in Las Vegas, with plans to go their separate ways immediately afterwards.

“We were driving through Vegas and almost spontaneously took a detour and got married,” Cera said in a new interview with Rolling Stone released Friday.

The “Barbie” star explained that he and Plaza, who were dating at the time, were getting a marriage certificate.

“I think the idea was to get a divorce immediately, so we could call each other ‘ex-husband’ and ‘ex-wife’ at around… 20 years old,” Cera said.

In Edgar Wright’s 2010 cult classic “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” Cera played the titular teenager tasked with defeating a league of seven evil exes in order to date Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). Plaza had a minor role as Julie Powers, who worked at a coffee shop with Scott’s younger sister Stacey (Anna Kendrick).

During a 2016 interview for RuPaul and Michelle Visage’s podcast, “What’s the Tee,” Plaza revealed that she and Cera had an off-screen relationship for a year and a half.

“I dated him for a long time,” Plaza said.

“We drove across the country after shooting this movie and almost got married in Vegas,” she said, adding that her co-star was “very special.”

“We love each other,” Plaza continued. “We’re still really good friends. He’s just a weird little monster and we speak the same language. He’s one of the funniest people I know.”

It’s been years since they dated, but Cera told Rolling Stone he’s still a fan of his ex.

“I mean, she’s always been so committed to everything she does,” he said when asked about the recent buzz around Plaza following her critically acclaimed performance in the season 2 of “The White Lotus”.

“It’s no surprise to me that she’s doing really well,” Cera said. “What amazes me is how much she produces and puts together projects. It’s amazing. ‘Ingrid Goes West?’ It was so awesome.”

Next, Cera and Plaza will reprise their roles as “Scott Pilgrim” for a upcoming anime adaptation for Netflix.
