Who needs Tinder when Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson are ready to show us exactly how to navigate the dating world?
The two actresses are teaming up for a new movie, How to be Single, out in February – and despite the somewhat unexpected duo, Wilson and Johnson promise greatness.
“It is a pretty hysterical, unconventional friendship,” Johnson, 26, tells PEOPLE of the relationship between their two characters in the comedy. “Rebel’s character is so wild and free and [my character] Alice has not ever really behaved that way. They both learn a bit from the other.”
Wilson, 35, plays the role of Robin, whom she describes as “a wild single girl living in New York City” who “loves to party and dance up a storm in ‘da clubs!’ ”
“While my character is fiercely independent, Dakota’s character has just come out of a long-term relationship and is showing all the signs of co-dependency,” Wilson explains. “Robin takes Alice under her wing, so to speak, and teaches her how to be single in the Big Apple.”
