Rebel Wilson is denying reports that she will play Adele in a forthcoming biopic. The Pitch Perfect star recently debunked the rumor as a false tabloid story over Twitter, claiming she has never been offered the role.
When one disappointed fan asked if she would play the role if the chance ever came around, Wilson responded with “would depend on the script.”
Wilson’s tweet came after Adele addressed the rumors to an arena concert crowd in London, where she didn’t hold back her very ill feelings.
“I’ve heard there are rumors about Rebel Wilson will be playing me in a movie,” Adele said. “Let’s see if that turns out to be true. They need my f–king permission.”
Ouch. That was kind of harsh and crude. However whereas Wilson isn’t doing it, she is playing Ursala in the upcoming The Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl Show.
