"We have ESP," Rob joked, referencing extrasensory perception, or the ability to communicate through sixth senses, adding: "He knows before I say something, and I know [before] he says something. And if something isn't working, we both know without even talking to each other."

Speaking to People magazine, he shared: "We're just telepathic in ways where if it were another director, it would be a whole prolonged conversation that they might not even understand."
