Rebel Wilson Was Almost Turned Away From Skybar
If you've ever been given a hard time at the door of a West Hollywood club, it might feel nice to know that not only are you not alone, you're in delightful company: In this month's issue of Cosmo, Rebel Wilson describes the time that a bouncer almost didn't let her into Skybar.
To be clear, that's Rebel Wilson, who is amazing, and hilarious, and everyone should be begging for her to be at whatever club it is outside of which they're bouncing. She was discussing with the magazine ways in which her real life overlaps with incidents in her new TV show, "Super Fun Nights."
Here's the story:
Rebel: In the pilot, my character gets invited to drinks, but she can't get into the club—that happened to me recently at Skybar. Anna Kendrick was having her birthday party there, and it was a fancy place. So I get there with Hana Mae Lee from Pitch Perfect, and I've got a birthday gift so I'm clearly going to the party, and this big huge bouncer wouldn't even look us in the face. We were like, "Hi"…and then two models came and he let them in. Cosmo: Did you pull the "Do you know who I am" card?
Rebel: I didn't pull the Reese Witherspoon [laughs]. He had a list, and I said, "Excuse me, we're on the list. We're here for Anna Kendrick's birthday party." And then, eventually, he's like "Okay, what's your name?"
