Laura Prepon Dishes On 'Creepy' 'Are You There, Chelsea?' With Wilmer Valderrama
Wilmer Valderrama’s “That ‘70s Show” character, Fez, consistently tried to hook up with Laura Prepon’s character for eight seasons – and now he’ll get the chance on the actress’ new show “Are You There, Chelsea?” – and Laura is a little creeped out!
The “Are You There, Chelsea?” star stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Tuesday, where she dished on her former co-star’s upcoming appearance on her NBC sitcom, where he plays a love interest of her character.
”[My character has been with] 10 men and one dog – that I spoon – in an episode, we have a tally of how many men my character has been with,” Laura told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover with a laugh.
“And Wilmer is going to be one soon enough! He’s coming up in an episode,” she explained, saying that adjusting to working with her “That ‘70s Show” co-star in a romantic capacity wasn’t easy.
“It’s creepy… It’s a little creepy!” she told Billy and Kit. “And I read the script and I was like, ‘Oh my god, please don’t have there be a make out scene with Wilmer. That would just be not good.’”
Laura is also getting used to another new aspect of playing Chelsea Handler on NBC comedy – her new hair color.
“I’m a natural carrot top and I’m a traitor to my kind,” she said of her new blond locks. “It kills your hair! When you’re a natural redhead and you’re trying to be a blonde, it is not easy!”
“Are You There, Chelsea?” airs Wednesdays at 8:30 PM on NBC.
