Rebel Wilson is arm-in-arm with mystery man in LA after revealing she is ‘happily in a relationship’

She recently revealed that she was ‘happily in a relationship’ with a mystery man. 

But Rebel Wilson had a different male companion on her arm for dinner on Wednesday night – friend to the stars, Hermès executive Michael Coste.

The 42-year-old Australian actress was seen arm-in-arm with Michael, 66, while leaving celeb-favorite Craig’s in West Hollywood.

Rebel looked stunning in a black and white midi dress for the night out. 

She gave the monochrome look a pop of color in the form of a small green Hermes bag which may well have been gifted to her by Michael – who works for the brand.

The dress featured one big stripe across the upper arms and three matching ones near the hemline as she added a pair of black leather heels.

The outing comes at an interesting time as Rebel recently revealed that she is ‘happily in a relationship’ with a mystery man.

The Pitch Perfect star, who previously had little luck on dating apps, was introduced to her new partner through a mutual friend who thought they ‘would hit it off’.

While she did not reveal the man’s identity, Rebel revealed on the U Up? podcast that things were already getting serious for the couple.

‘I am now happily in a relationship… I met them at a friend’s set-up,’ Rebel, 42, told hosts Jordana Abraham and Jared Freid. 

‘He had known both of us for at least five years and he thought we would hit it off – and then we did!

‘I think that escalates things quicker, meeting someone from a trusted source. I can trust that they are who they say they are, which is something that you don’t really know on the apps.’

The How to Be Single star spoke about the process to get there, which included ‘dating 50 people in one year’ for practice.

Rebel explained: ‘I think I went out with about 50 people in that one year, but some of them were just one date and then you think, “Oh, no.”

‘I deliberately wanted to push myself to date a bunch of people and gain that experience, which I know is not normal, but it really helped me find out what I liked and what I didn’t like.

‘It was a fun thing and I don’t think anybody got hurt by it or anything and nobody else knew – just me and my close friends.’

In 2019, Rebel labelled the process the ‘Year of Love’ and did not allow herself to say ‘no’ to people.

She said: ‘I said no to nobody. I went on some dates with some billionaires and then also some people who had nothing, it was the full spectrum of people.

‘For a woman my age – at that point I was 39 – I really wanted a relationship, but I had only had a few small relationships, so I had to just get more practice in dating.’

A year later, she switched to the ‘Year of Health’ and dropped almost 80lbs (36kg).

Rebel’s last confirmed boyfriend was billionaire Jacob Busch, the heir of the Anheuser-Busch brewery, which produces America’s most popular beer, Budweiser.

They dated for about a year until February 2021.

Her other exes include stuntman Aden Stay, Australian tennis player Matt Reid and actor-producer Mickey Gooch Jr.
