Conheci-os porque são o casal de Shortbus que passa por uma crise: James e Jamie. Acontece que Paul Dawson e PJ DeBoy (Paul DeBoy) já eram e são um casal para além do filme. Pergunta a Paul Dawson e respectiva resposta:
How did you fall in love with PJ DeBoy? Did it begin during the shooting? Did you find it odd to see your actual relationship on screen? What was your reaction at the screening?
PJ and I fell in love a few months prior to starting to work on the film. Although some of James and Jamie's story was inspired by our experiences, it is not at all our actual relationship. Our love for each other is clearly present onscreen. That chemistry is why John cast us as a couple, and I was delighted to see that captured on film. It is a little odd to know that people who see the movie will think that they know us, but it really is just a story we made up together.
A cena de sexo que protagonizam com Jay Brannan é fabulosa e de ir às lágrimas de hilariante e inusitada.
