Rebel Wilson, Dakota Johnson Tackle The Dating Life In ‘How to Be Single’
When you are single and looking for that next “catch” in New York City, who better to enlist as your wing woman than Rebel Wilson? That pretty much sums up the hysterical plot of Wilson’s newest film, How to Be Single. Based on the book by Liz Truccillo, who co-wrote, He’s Just Not That Into You, the film finds Wilson helping her co-star, Dakota Johnson, navigate the tricky dating field after a recent breakup.
Together the Fifty Shades of Grey star finds a guide in Wilson’s character. The trailer opens on Johnson getting a lesson from the Pitch Perfect star on how to get free drinks from a bar. Needless to say it does not go over like they planned. Wilson continues to show Johnson the ropes, sharing advice on the real way to text a guy, keeping up with some personal grooming habits, and how to swiftly recover from a hangover. (Anything involving Wilson chugging Pedialyte is a must see!) A star-studded ensemble cast including Leslie Mann, Jake Lacy, Damon Wayans Jr. and Anders Holm also join Johnson and Wilson. The film, directed by Christian Ditter, hits theaters on February 12. Perfect for Valentine’s Day weekend.
