The singer/songwriter also talks about the way making a movie is like recording a song.
With Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly’s Queenpins now streaming on Paramount+ for subscribers in the United States, I recently spoke to Bebe Rexha about playing a baddass hacker in her first movie role. If you haven’t seen the trailer, Queenpins is inspired by a true story and stars Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as best friends that start a multi-million dollar coupon scam. As you might imagine, this kind of operation draws the interest of law enforcement and it’s up to a loss prevention officer (Paul Walter Hauser) from a local supermarket chain and a determined U.S. postal inspector (Vince Vaughn) to figure out how millions of dollars in coupons are flooding the market. Queenpins also stars Joel McHale and Stephen Root.
During the interview she talked about why she wanted to make her acting debut in the film, the secret to playing a badass hacker, how everyone can relate to coupons, what surprised her about making her first movie, and the way making a movie is like recording a song.
