Rebel Wilson was surprised Liam Hemsworth was funny – RTE.ie

Rebel Wilson told Ellen DeGeneres that she never expected Liam Hemsworth to be funny ahead of filming Isn’t It Romantic because he is “so hot”.

The actor, newly wed to Miley Cyrus, also starred in Hunger Games and plays Blake, one of two of Rebel Wilson Natalie’s love interests, in the upcoming romantic comedy.

The How to be Single actress said that she never thought that Hemsworth would end up being ”the funniest guy” on set.

Speaking to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she told the talk show host: ”Normally, people that are so hot like that aren’t that funny.

”Turns out, he’s just such a legend and the funniest guy, so it was a good move for me casting him.”

The Pitch Perfect actress did say he had the looks, but maybe not the moves saying when he danced he ”really gave it his all”.

”He’s handsome and funny, and … you don’t need to do everything right.”

Hemsworth did not make the premiere of the film as he was hospitalised with kidney stones. His wife Miley Cyrus attended the premiere in his place.

Rebel said: ”He texted us this morning – he was in hospital overnight, so hopefully he will be fine.”

Cyrus took to Instagram to give an update on  Hemsworth by sharing a series of snaps of herself attending the premiere in her spouse’s place, and she gushed about how ”proud” she is of her ”hunky hubby” and his new comedy flick.

The 26-year-old pop star also admitted it was ”hard” for Hemsworth to put himself first, but said it was ”crucial” for him to ”heal” properly before returning to work.

Isn’t It Romantic comes to Netflix in Ireland on February 28.
