VIDEO: Rebel Wilson and James Corden Share How They Tricked Tom Hooper on the Set of CATS
Rebel Wilson stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to talk about her upcoming film CATS, in which host Corden also co-stars. During the interview, Corden shared a picture of him and Wilson on set.
The photo was of the two of them in their digital fur technology suits lounging on the floor. Wilson explained the photo saying, "there was a big massive saying with Taylor Swift, Dame Judi Dench, Ray Winston, us two, we are like this is going to be a massive scene, it will take days to film. So us two, we collude and we are like let's get the most comfortable position on the set, because we're going to have to be here for days."
