Back in Australia whilst still a drama student, Rebel had won the Nicole Kidman Scholarship at the Australian Theatre for Young People. After spotting Nicole Kidman having dinner with Crowe in Sydney, Rebel walked over to show her gratitude, but it didn’t go quite as planned:
"I thought now is my chance to say thank you and I went up to them but before I could say anything Russell Crowe looked at me and says 'F*** off'… So I just like put my head down and walked away. But thanks Nicole."
Hmmm, way to be nice, Russell. While we totes get that life in the public eye can be exhausting and mean a certain lack of privacy, there's no need to be downright rude! Geeez!
As for Rebel, things have turned out well! The actress who’s getting ready to host this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards explained that her latest gig is harder than one might think:
"It's pretty full-on… I have to dance, I have to sing, I have to do jokes and I have to try to look hot … that'll probably be the hardest one."
Rebel, we don’t think you’ll have any problems — not as long as Russell doesn’t show up!
