“Throuple” in the Making for Rebel Wilson on Valentines Day

 This Valentines Day is in for a treat with hilarious, full of sass Australian actress, Rebel Wilson. You may know Wilson from 2012’s ‘Pitch Perfect,’ along with, ‘How to Be Single,’ ‘Bridesmaids’ and many more since her Pitch Perfect debut. However, her latest project ‘Isn’t It Romantic’ set to air the day before Valentines Day will definitely have you glued to the movie screen.

The movie is about character, Natalie, struggling to get attention and respect at her job as an architect in the Big Apple. She finds herself doing more of the “intern” duties than actually designing anything.

Her life takes an even larger downfall when she gets knocked unconscious on the Subway after a robber tries to steal her purse. By surprise, she wakes up to her world becoming a magical fantasy when everything she has hoped and dreamed for is right at her fingertips….fancy apartment, flashy clothes and her favorite, love.

Just to add to the mix, Miley Cyrus’s new Beau, Australian actor, Liam Hemsworth is also starring in the new movie with Wilson. Ironically, for Valentines Day, sources have said that Cyrus-Hemsworth is open to having a “throuple” with Wilson and her hubby since Wilson stated that she would be out of a date on Valentines Day this year.

Rebel Wilson’s tweet confirmed, “I’ve never EVER had an actual date on Valentine’s Day – so if you’re like me, now you definitely have a date to come see my movie and be kindred spirits!” Cyrus was more than happy to invite her on a date with her and Liam for this Valentines Day which makes the day this year, extra special for her. Way to go Miley! That’s what friends are for, right?

As if we aren’t in love with Rebel Wilson enough already, it’s fascinating to know that the talented actress has come a long way during her booming career. Many don’t know this, but shortly after graduating from the Australian Theatre for Young People in 2013, she went on to act, sing AND produce.

The first piece that she starred in and produced was called ‘Bogan Bride’ in 2008. She moved to NYC in 2003 on scholarship from the theater she studied at in Australia and has been busy working ever since.

By 2002, the public began to know and remember the star’s name from several projects that she produced and acted in. She was a comical sensation to the big screen as a writer, singer, producer and actress.

‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ will be hitting theaters on February 13, 2019 just in time for Cupid’s day.
