Rebel Wilson: I Get “Death Threats” From Harry Styles Fans (VIDEO)
Rebel Wilson says she’s been getting death threats from One Direction fans after getting handsy with Harry Styles on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” last November. See the video below.
While appearing on Friday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Wilson revealed her last appearance on the talk show alongside One Direction sparked outrage from the band’s fans. “Basically, I got accused of sexually assaulting Harry Styles,” the How To Be Single told Ellen DeGeneres, as footage aired of the actress jokingly pawing at the handsome singer during their joint appearance. “These little girls, I think they’re about 12, [were] very, very unhappy with that. Basically, we’re just like two professional entertainers having a good time, and he really enjoyed it… and I told him that on Twitter, and then they just sent me more death threats,” she continued.
Potentially further fueling hate from Directioners, Wilson expressed how delusional she thinks the band’s fans are. “Like they love them, and they think they’re going to be with them, and I’m like, ‘Well, but you guys never, like, are with them,'” she said. Still, Wilson noted there has “been no further action” between her and Styles, adding, “There was no like direction, you know, there was nothing going on there.”
Later during her appearance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Wilson, who said she’s single and dating at the moment, joked about recently picking up Justin Bieber in Las Vegas. “Justin and I had a moment. We’ll leave it at that. I’m a classy lady. I don’t want his fans sending me death threats,” she quipped.
But during a round of DeGeneres’ “Who’d You Rather?” game, Wilson was asked to pick between Styles and Bieber. “Both have felt my womanliness. I’m just going to say Justin because he’s, location-wise, closer,” she answered, possibly attempting to ease the wrath of One Direction fans. Watch the video below.
