Rebel Wilson on First Meeting Meghan Markle: 'She Wasn't as Naturally Warm'
Rebel Wilson is opening up about meeting Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for the first time, and it wasn't exactly great.
The Pitch Perfect star recalled the experience during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, where they had been talking about the royal family during a commercial break and briefly continued on the subject when they got back from break. Wilson said when she met the couple in Santa Barbara, Markle was a bit standoffish while Harry, on the other hand, was "lovely."
"Meghan was not as cool. She wasn't as naturally warm," said Wilson, who revealed they share a mutual friend, a polo player.
That being said, the actress conceded that the not-so-warm encounter with Markle may have had a lot to do with her mother, Sue Bownds, being a bit intrusive and asking "slightly rude" questions like, "Where are your kids?"
"And I'm like, 'Mom, don't ask her that," Wilson said. "Maybe that's why she was like, 'Who are these annoying convicts from Australia?"
As for Harry, Wilson said he "could not have been nicer."
The royal revelation came on the same week Wilson revealed she was banned from Disneyland after a huge no-no at the theme park.
"I did get banned from Disneyland for 30 days because I took a photo inside a secret bathroom, which is illegal, at Disneyland," Wilson shared on The Daily Show with a laugh, and without elaborating on what she meant by "secret bathroom."
"I got officially banned for 30 days. They called me up and said, 'Rebel what 30 days did you not want to come to Disneyland because you’re away filming a movie or something?' And I was like, 'Oh, well, June would be fine.'"
