Mucho vs muy?

Hi all, I have been learning Spanish for about 3 months now. At work yesterday I called my friend lazy, “tu eres perezoso” and our Spanish coworker laughed and said “Mucho”. If I wanted to say very lazy, it would be muy perezoso, not mucho perezoso, no? Was it just for emphasis? Ty for advice.
