Rebel Wilson has revealed the director asked her to handpick which extra she wanted to kiss on the set of 'How To Be Single' out of 300 men
Rebel Wilson handpicked which extra she wanted to kiss on the set of 'How To Be Single'.
The 35-year-old actress was asked by the movie's director to choose who she wanted to smooch and her chosen man was incredibly thankful for it.
Speaking on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she shared: "But then the choice was which one? So an assistant director comes out and he's like, 'OK, if anyone doesn't want to kiss Rebel Wilson, go to that side of the room.' Only a few went ... It was really embarrassing because then they made me parade around the 'available' men and I had to choose a handful to kiss in various scenes.
"So one of the guys I picked was this African American guy ... And I got to kiss him in the scene and then at the end of the day he came up to me, just before I was going into my trailer, and he said, 'Rebel, I want you to know that you choosing me out of all those guys made my life.' At least he didn't go home and go, 'Oh my God, guess what I had to do today?'"
Meanwhile, Rebel previously joked she got drunk to prepare for her role in the comedy.
She said: "In the film we are playing single girls in New York City and we all have different ways of coping with being single. My way of coping is just by drinking a lot. [To prepare] I had to get smashed every night, but in a totally professional way."
