Rebel Wilson has a new fan and he’s kind of a big deal.
LeBron James gave the Pitch Perfect 2 star and her Fat Amy character a shout out in an interview recently, when asked about the normalcy of his superstar life.

“Well, I’m able to pick and choose. I do normal stuff, I guess,” he told Agence France-Presse. “I sat out at an outdoor burger place and had a burger. Last night I went out and had a great dinner. I do normal stuff. I think I do.
“I went to the movies last week at a regular movie theater. I went to go see, I forgot the name of the movie.
“What is the movie with the girls and they’re singing? Pitch Perfect 2, which is unbelievable. Fat Amy is awesome. I love her. Wherever you are, you’re awesome.”

Only a few hours later, Wilson responded with props to King James:
Thanks @KingJames for the shout out today, your taste in movies is as amazing as your basketball!

We’re not even sure what kind of dream collaboration these two could cook up in our wildest fantasies, but it’s fun enough imagining them getting together on some level.
Also, props to James for not being too macho to admit to loving Pitch Perfect 2.
