Rebecca Hall Says Louis Tomlinson And Harry Styles Should Get Together In Funny Or Die Video Mocking One Direction Fans
As Gossip Cop confirmed earlier this week, Tomlinson is set to be a dad with Briana Jungwirth, who is pregnant with their child. One Direction fans have not taken the news well, with many expressing shock and even disappointment on social media. A number of Directioners are also angry with Tomlinson for not personally addressing the development.
Hall, who has no actual connection to the band, filmed a video for Funny or Die in which she pretends to be one of those devastated fans. In the clip, the London-born actress appears on the verge of tears as she processes her emotions about Tomlinson becoming a father. Hall begins, “He’s going to be a dad. That means he had sex with someone, and it wasn’t any of us.”
“You can’t be in a boy band if you’re a dad,” says Hall, wondering if she, too, will have to call Tomlinson “dad.” The movie star becomes emotional saying, “Louis will always be a part of the band, and now his baby will be part of the band, too.” Hall later realizes that if Jungwirth gives birth to a son, there could be a “baby boy band.”
“Maybe the baby can replace Zayn,” Hall suggests, before quickly correcting herself, “No one can replace Zayn.” She goes on to say, “I’m going to be honest. I really wanted that Larry thing to be true. I don’t think there’s any shame in that. Louis and Harry a couple, I think that’s hot. They should still do that if they’re curious.”
The clip ends with Hall drawing on a One Direction poster, in which she has her face replaying Zayn Malik. The art work she adds? A baby in her stomach, of course. And this isn’t the first time Funny or Die has taken One Direction fan comments and turned them into a spoof.
As Gossip Cop reported, the site released a video in late March in which Billy Zane pretended to think all the tweets about Malik (in the wake of his departure from the group) were about him. Check out the new sketch below, and tell us what you think.
