Does this count as a triple threat? Twilight star Nikki Reed can now add video vixen to her resume. She scored a spot in the new Hanson video for their song “Get the Girl Back.” Yes, those MMMBop boys are still making music.
She and her friend Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls), who’s also in the video, have been fans for years, but didn’t know about the other’s obsession. “We didn’t know we were Hanson fans until we both signed onto the video. It was a weird, secret obsession that we both had and kept to ourselves,” Reed said.
“I wrote [Hanson] fan mail. That’s how my relationship with them started. I mean, I love them. I wrote them fanmail in the hopes that they’d write me back, and Kat did the same thing,” she explained. “That’s how these relationships blossomed. And they called both of us… and then we both showed up to do this video. It could not be any funnier. Just because I see Kat every week. How did I not know this about her?”
Reed’s husband Paul McDonald is a big fan too, and had a cameo in the video. She’s collaborated with him before on a song for the Breaking Dawn Part 2 soundtrack.
“Regardless of whether or not you like ‘MMBop,’ we’re talking about three brothers who could not be more—they’re such polished musicians,” Reed said. “When you’re around them, you have to be inspired musically. They’re so talented.”
The video’s not out yet but you can catch a behind-the-scenes look at Nikki and Kat above.
