Rebel Wilson accomplished two big goals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, meeting her boy band idols in One Direction while simultaneously debuting the trailer for her new film, How to Be Single.
The Pitch Perfect 2 actress joined the band on DeGeneres’s show Wednesday decked out in a One Direction sweater and carrying a sign that read “1D 4Eva.” Wilson proceeded to profess her love for the band, and told them she knows their new song “Olivia” is really about her.
After letting her fan girl out, Wilson debuted the trailer for her new comedy, How to Be Single, in which she stars as Robin, a party girl who helps reintroduce her newly single friend Alice, played by Dakota Johnson, into the dating world.
“While my character is fiercely independent, Dakota’s character has just come out of a long-term relationship and is showing all the signs of codependency,” Wilson explained to Entertainment Weekly. “Robin takes Alice under her wing, so to speak.”
In the clip, Wilson takes Johnson out on the town in N.Y.C. and teaches her dating essentials like how to avoid paying for margaritas at the bar.
