Rebel Wilson (being a cat) and fellow Cats star Jason Derulo on the Jonathan Ross Show (Picture: Rex Features) Rebel Wilson has discussed the great lengths she and the cast of Cats went to to be (what else?) cats. Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show this week, the star said: 'We had to lick each other a little bit.' This film just gets more and more bizarre. Appearing with singer Jason Derulo, who also stars in the film, Rebel added: 'I have actually got a photo of me licking Jason. He didn't mind.' Added Jason: 'I don't know if it made the film. 'I remember doing that over and over, all day long and then it didn't make the film!' Rebel and Jason (Picture: Rex Features) Teasing the release, Rebel also said: 'Billions of people around the world have seen the musical because it's so iconic but there's not a lot of comedy, there's actually no jokes, dialogue jokes, so we thought, "Let's add some!"' 'The editors sent me a list of all the jokes that got cut out because they were way too rude.' When the very odd first trailer for Cats – based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical – was released earlier this year, it brought the internet to a standstill.

Rebel plays Jennyanydots in the new film (Picture: Rex Features) Fellner argued that people criticising the trailer were 'probably people who didn't know Cats and the fact is they were either anticipating something animated or something that was on four legs.' 'Among people who know Cats, the reaction was pretty solid.' Whether triumph or disaster, we literally can't wait to see it… Cats hits UK cinemas on 20 December 2019. Got a showbiz story?
