In a series of Twitter posts Jan. 17, Wilson, 26, admitted to watching "like six episodes" of the "addictive" program. "That Catfish show is so funny and yet so sad at the same time. Kinda fascinating," the Pitch Perfect star wrote. "Just watched the original [documentary] and it's awesome!"

"I would never online date unless it was for 'comedy research,'" the Aussie added. "The other things I've done for 'comedy research' include fat camp and drinking."
