'Jessica Jones' Star David Tennant Learns What 'Netflix And Chill' Really Means

He may be the last person who thinks it's a legitimate invite for a movie night.

David Tennant will be making a splash on Netflix this Friday when the original series "Marvel's Jessica Jones" hits the streaming service, but the actor who plays Kilgrave in the comic book adaptation has apparently missed out on the ubiquitous meme that uses his new employer as a surreptitious invitation for sex.

During a HuffPost Live interview on Monday, host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani referenced the pervasive catchphrase "Netflix and chill." But when she realized that she didn't fully understand that the words have become a veiled proposition for more, Tennant admitted he had no idea what "Netflix and chill" means, either -- and he was quite startled by its actual connotation.

Watch Tennant discover the true meaning above, and catch his full HuffPost Live conversation here.
