Rebel Wilson's One Direction joke cut from Teen Choice Awards
Aussie actress defends 'pretty funny joke'
Rebel Wilson found herself muted out of the coverage of last night's Teen Choice awards, after making an edgy gag about super-popular boy band One Direction.
Onstage to accept her award for best comedy actor, the Australian quipped: "You know what's weird? When I found out that there was a band called One Direction.
"Because that's the name I also gave my asshole."
Asked backstage about the remark, she said: "That's a pretty funny joke."
But the Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect star appears to harbour no personal animosity towards the British quintet.
Asked who her favourite was, she said: "I like Harry [Styles]. I met them backstage before I went on and Ed Sheeran, who's not technically part of the band, was there and kind of jamming. He's a very nice guy. But probably Harry."
And asked by E! Online if a collaboration might be in the offing, she said: "I'd love to do a song with them and a film clip where we get really hot and sexy.
"I didn't [ask them]. They were like brushing their hair and getting ready.
"But maybe if I see them again I'll talk to them."
