Who knew Rebel Wilson was a Directioner? When Ellen DeGeneres had One Direction on her show, she made Rebel’s dream come true when she introduced the actress to the boys — and Rebel was so excited, she even shed a couple of tears!
Comedic actress Rebel Wilson, 35, is always doing something funny, but when she got the chance to meet One Direction, there were no jokes about her tearful reaction! Sporting a shirt with all of the guys on it and holding a sign reading “1D 4EVA,” Rebel totally flipped out when Ellen DeGeneres brought her out to meet the boys on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As any Directioner would when they come face to face with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan, Rebel couldn’t help herself from crying!
Before the guys visited Ellen on Nov. 18, Rebel sent Ellen an email asking to meet the guys. “I can’t believe you’re having One Direction on, they’re my freaking favorite,” Ellen read from Rebel’s request. “Words can’t describe what they mean to me, not only are they the hottest guys but their music like really inspires me. I would do anything to meet them could you please make my dream come true?” Her letter was enough to convince Ellen to bring Rebel out to meet 1D, but then when she came out in full fangirl attire and in tears, it was obvious Rebel wasn’t fooling!
While tears can sometimes make for a fairly awkward fan encounter, Louis, Liam, Niall, and Harry were totally flattered by Rebel’s excitement. In fact, they were all cracking up over her fangirling!
When it comes to her fave 1D tune, Rebel admitted that she loves their new song “Olivia.” Although fans have speculated that the track could be Harry’s ode to Louis, Rebel told the guys, “I know that’s really about me, so that’s my new favorite.”
Rebel clearly really loves One Direction! She got a solo pic with Harry backstage and shared it on Twitter, even hinting that they may have locked lips. “Does this mean T Swift & I are now officially ‘spit sisters’ X,” she captioned the pic. Harry did admit to Ellen that he has hooked up with a fan — maybe Rebel’s crying was so endearing, he wanted to give her a smooch! That would certainly be quite the way for Rebel to meet her dream guys!
Did you know Rebel was such a huge 1D fan, HollywoodLifers? Was it embarrassing for her to cry in front of them, or do you totally understand why she did? Tell us below!
