Is there anything wrong with being single? If you were to believe reality TV, there is, given the lengths people go to in order to find someone on The Bachelor and its various spin-offs. But at least one person, actress Rebel Wilson, thinks it’s perfectly okay to fly solo—especially when you can use it to do a little shameless promotion for a movie!
The Australian star gave us a peek into her television habits when she wrote on Twitter, “What is wrong with these ‘ladies’ on the Bachelor?? [sic]” likely referring to the criticism of women acting poorly for the attention of a man they barely know. But she doesn’t stop there, using the discussion as an opportunity to plug her latest project, adding, “They really need to watch #HowToBeSingle in Feb to get some tips …seriously…. [sic]”

How to Be Single is Rebel Wilson’s new movie, scheduled to be released on February 12. Also starring Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie, and Leslie Mann, the film is about four men and five women “learning” to be single in New York City as what it means to be in love continues to change. The film is based on a novel of the same name by Liz Tuccillo, a writer and director who also worked on the hit show Sex and the City, so she probably knows a thing or two about the lives of women in New York.
Many of Rebel Wilson’s fans shared her sentiments about The Bachelor, with replies like, “I could never be on that show. It’s kinda gross making out w people back to back. [sic]” The best comment had to be one person’s theory about the contestants: “I think they recycle crazy. Change of hair color & let em back in. I think it’s fame NOT love they want. Or the open bar? [sic]”
Hopefully all the contestants can catch Rebel Wilson’s new movie and learn that it’s okay to be single (and not make an ass of yourself on TV).
