According to a report from Fox News, Rebel Wilson is quite fond of Liam Hemsworth and was surprised to see just how great his sense of humor is. During an appearence on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, the star spoke at length about the movie, Isn’t It Romantic, in which she stars alongside the husband of Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth.
Jokingly, the Pitch Perfect alum revealed she felt Liam was simply too hot to be as funny as he is. “Normally, people that are so hot like that aren’t that funny,” the 38-year-old star remarked. However, as it turns out he’s a great person to work with.
However, it wasn’t all a positive and glowing review. Rebel had to take some shots at Mr. Hemsworth’s dancing movies, which she described as less-than-great. You can check out the YouTube video below to see Rebel explain it herself:
DeGeneres joked that he’s not only a great-looking man but also pretty funny; he doesn’t need to do everything perfectly. Currently, Liam is reportedly recovering in the hospital from kidney stones. In fact, his wife, Miley Cyrus, whom he just got married to, had to go to the film premiere for Isn’t It Romantic? in his place.
It was reported yesterday that Miley and her ex-boyfriend, Nick Jonas, whom she dated over ten years ago, didn’t really bump into each other or interact with one another at all. Putting that all aside, it’s great to see that Rebel really enjoyed working with the Australian-born actor.
This marks the first time Rebel Wilson has been in a highly-publicized film in a while. Previously, the singing actress took some heat for publicly proclaiming herself to be one of the first plus-sized women in Hollywood, a comment for which she was taken to task online.
Fellow celebrities and entertainers were quick to point out the plethora of plus-size women including Oprah Winfrey and Mo’Nique among other women of color. One person on Twitter suggested that popular culture was already erasing the history of women of color so there was no reason for Rebel to contribute to that.
