Justin Long talks kosher meat

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

An Orthodox Jewish couple is more upset about non-kosher hamburgers being cooked on their grill than a sex scene on their dining room table, actor Justin Long said.

Scenes from the new film "Going the Distance," also starring Drew Barrymore, were filmed at the home of an Orthodox Jewish family from Queens, New York.

In an interview with George Lopez on Lopez Tonight, Long described the couple as "serious" about their Judaism after describing how angry they got when they discovered that non-kosher hamburgers were cooked on their grill for use in a dinner scene.

Long continued: "Somebody, while we were shooting the sex-on-their-dining-room-table scene raised the point ‘Well, if they had a problem with that meat… . "

The studio replaced the grill and the utensils.
