Rebel Wilson descended on the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and for once she wasn’t quite on her game.
When asked by the E! Online correspondents what she will say when she meets President Barack Obama, she was unsure but said she definitely wouldn’t lead with a joke.
Rebel was game for a pre-enactment, staging the meeting for a little practice but it was a bust. “I put on fancy accent,” she says, surprising herself. “I guess I’ll use my best English.”
Fresh off hosting the MTV Movie Awards, Rebel says she was also bewildered to learn the dinner isn’t actually at the president’s abode. “You think it’s at the White House,” she says. “Its at a hotel. And its not just 10 people at a dinner party.”
Nope, the Hilton hotel ballroom will seat about 3,000 people to hear Conan O’Brien crack wise, including a long line of celebrities like “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara, “Gangnam Style” rapper Psy, “Olympus Has Fallen” star Gerard Butler, and the cast of “Duck Dynasty.”
Rebel was quick to brag about the personal invitation she received to the dinner from the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
