Some things are just too good to be true!

Rumour had it that Rebel Wilson was set to play Adele in an upcoming biopic.

According to reports, the Pitch Perfect star was looking to act in her first serious role in hopes of earning an Oscar nomination.

While we were super stoked at the possibility of the 36-year-old playing the music icon, our B.S. detectors went off while reading the report, which quoted a source saying:

“[Rebel] thinks that this role could be the making of her career and transform her into a major movie star….She knows that she can’t go on playing wacky fat girl roles forever.”

Before fans were able to get super excited (or devastated) over the casting news, the actress took to Twitter to confirm the report was “completely made up.”

On Tuesday, she shared:

There you have it!

Rebel can totally carry a tune, so we’re sure she’d be an excellent contender to play the British crooner — but the fact that Adele’s career is at an all-time high means her biopic probably won’t be coming for another decade or so.
