Rebel Wilson Geeked Out Filming Bachelorette With Kirsten Dunst
For Australian actress Rebel Wilson, working with Kirsten Dunst on the upcoming movie Bachelorette was a dream come true.
"She's in my favorite movie of all time," Wilson, 26, said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live August 15. "It's a masterpiece called Bring It On."
Dunst's 2000 cheerleader comedy, also starring Eliza Dushku, 31, and Gabrielle Union, 39, was a box office hit that spawned four direct-to-video sequels (starring Hayden Panettiere, 22, Solange Knowles, 26, Ashley Benson, 22, and Christina Milian, 30.)
"The whole time when we were filming Bachelorette, I had to ask her about Bring It On. In between takes I'd be like, 'Hey, Kiki' -- because that's what friends call her -- 'Remember when Sparky the choreographer came and taught you how to do spirit fingers?' And she'd be like, 'Yes, Rebs,'" Wilson recalled. "And I'd be like, 'Kiki, remember when you said it's not a democracy, it's a cheerocracy?' And she'd be like, 'Yes, Rebs.'"
Wilson then deadpanned, "Eventually she just started drinking tequila."

During her interview, Wilson also informed viewers know that Bachelorette has nothing to with the ABC reality dating series of the same name. "There's a lot more cocaine usage in the movie," she laughed. "It's a very dark and edgy comedy."
Wilson -- who has sisters named Liberty and Anarchy and a brother named Riot -- first gained notoriety in the United States as Kristen Wiig's unwelcome roommate in Bridesmaids. She later appeared in the ensemble comedy What to Expect When You're Expecting, opposite Jennifer Lopez, 43, Cameron Diaz, 39, and Elizabeth Banks, 38. She can next be seen in the film Pitch Perfect, in theaters October 5.
