Adele SLAMS claims that Rebel Wilson will play her in upcoming film


by Heat |

Not exactly known for holding back on delicate issues – alright, she bloody LOVES a kick-off – Adele is slowly becoming renowned for her candid and sassy on-stage remarks on her current world tour.

And by the sounds of it, her show in London on Monday night was no different.

At the sold-out concert she took a break from belting out her hits to respond to rumours that Australian actress Rebel Wilson will be playing her in an upcoming film about Adele’s life.

WHAT? A film adaptation of Adele’s life? Why have we only just heard of this? WHY ISN'T IT ON AT A CINEMA NEAR US RIGHT NOW?

Oh… wait.


The When We Were Young singer started off her mini-rant by saying: "I've heard there are rumours about Rebel Wilson playing me in a movie – let's see if that turns out to be true."

She carried on, adding: "Just because I'm plus-sized doesn't mean she's playing me."

Finishing the Rebel topic with "they need my f*cking permission [for that to happen]", Adele then veered into another tirade that she obviously needed to get off her chest.

And what better way to do that than in front of thousands of adoring fans?

She also did a shout out to the Glasto haters in typical Adele style, saying: "The only reason I'm doing Glastonbury is to annoy all the people who are annoyed."

If that's not an 'in your face, haterz', we don't know what is.

Rebel is yet to comment on the rumours, but has been known to compare herself to Adele in the past.

When she hosted the MTV Music Awards in 2013, she made the audience LOL by saying: "I’m quite surprised they asked me to host. So is MTV, they thought I was Adele."

The Pitch Perfect star is known for her comical on-screen roles but, according to the Daily Star, has "always wanted to prove that she can cut it as a serious actress".

Maybs not playing Adele though. Soz, hun.
