LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- 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.
