Don’t Look Up: Ariana Grande Fans Baffled By Director’s Comment

Don’t Look Up is the movie we’re all watching right now, after it dropped on Netflix on Christmas Eve.

The satirical film, which follows two desperate scientists trying to convince the world at large that civilisation will be wiped out by a giant asteroid, has been widely praised by viewers.

And while the film boasts an all-star cast, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence at the helm, it’s popstar Ariana Grande’s performance in Don’t Look Up that impressed director Adam McKay.

Speaking to Netflix, he explained: “It made sense to have the biggest pop star in the world play the biggest pop star in the world.

“We got her [Ariana] on set for her first scene with Leo and Jen, and she's improvising lines. I knew she'd nail the song, but I didn't know she could improvise.”

However, the fact that Ariana Grande smashed her performance in Don’t Look Up isn’t particularly surprising to fans of the singer, as it’s fairly well known that she first launched her showbiz career in acting before becoming a singer.

As well as an early role in a musical, one of Ariana’s first roles was playing Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon television series Victorious in 2010, as well as reprising the role for spin-off series Sam & Cat.

And Arianators were quick to remind everyone of this fact, jumping on Twitter to voice their confusion about McKay’s comments.

“Does everyone collectively forget that Ariana is literally an actress?” said one person.

“Clearly didn’t watch the improv scene in Victorious,” sniped another.

“This is how you know people cast without even looking at resumes and previous work,” a third interjected. “She started out as an actress. For years. She was in a Broadway musical. “Yes, dude, she probably knows how to improv.”

“Tired of y’all forgetting everyone, and I mean everyone, has started in professional theatre,” said a fourth.

“She led her own sitcom as a teenager... You missed this??!!” queried a fifth.

If only we could all be as multi-talented as Ariana Grande…
