The female stars of Todd Strauss-Schulson’s comedy Isn’t It Romantic — Rebel Wilson and newly married Priyanka Chopra Jonas — dropped into the stages of The Late Late Show to chat about the film with host James Corden Tuesday night.
Corden teased his guests appearance by tweeting a photo of himself with Wilson and Chopra Jonas doing “hot model poses” on the interview couch.

Describing her character in the film, Wilson called her “cynical and closed off to love.” Corden asked the actor about her experience as a producer on the project, to which Wilson replied with a joke about “perks” before answering seriously. “I got to cast a lot of great people like Priyanka,” she said.
Her co-star jumped in with a note about female empowerment. “She was on set all the time, involved in everything. It’s awesome to see a woman take charge of her own destiny.” On The Hustle, a remake of 1988’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels which releases May 10, Wilson also serves as producer. In television, Wilson’s producing credits include the half-hour comedy Super Fun Night.
Toward the end of their interview, the actors played card games with musician Justin Flom.
Isn’t It Romantic follows Wilson as a New York City architect who becomes trapped inside a romantic comedy, with all of the familiar genre tropes thrown in.
Since its release on Feb.13, the film has received a lukewarm response from critics, though many have praised Wilson’s character for coming across as a “real person” at the center of an extravagant comedic fantasy.
