Best friends aren’t supposed to fight, but for The Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin and Mirror Mirror’s Lily Collins, that’s exactly what they find themselves doing in Love, Rosie.
An adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s best-selling novel, the British romantic comedy charts two BFFs – Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) – and their friendship over the course of several years. Things between the pals dramatically shift when Alex moves to America, and they gamble everything to keep their connection alive.
In ETonline’s exclusive sneak peek from the film, in theaters Feb. 6, Alex chases after Rosie after she makes the bold decision to fly across the pond to visit him in the U.S. – and she quickly learns that he’s been hiding a major, life-changing secret.
He’s about to be a father, and Rosie is none too happy about it.
As is the case with all arguments, the real issue at heart isn’t that a baby is on the way, it’s that Alex’s life is in shambles. “I pity you!” Collins’ Rosie says. “All I see is someone overcompensating for a crap personal life, schmoozing his way up the career ladder!” It’s too bad Rosie’s the only one who can see through his mess.
Is he in denial? Is she right? Apparently it doesn’t matter, as Claflin’s Alex delivers the final blow. Watch the rest of the scene above.
Love, Rosie is in U.S. theaters and VOD on Feb. 6.
