Old scenes of Meghan Markle, in her pre-Duchess Of Sussex days, in the 2011-film The Boys And Girls Guide To Getting Down show the former actress ‘snoring cocaine and bedhopping’ amid reports the flick be re-released this year. Perhaps capitalising on the amazing popularity of the Duchess since marrying Prince Harry in May, The Hollywood Reporter has said Paul Sapiano’s ‘tongue-in-cheek look at twenty-something singles clubbing and partying in Los Angeles’ has been picked up by Artist Rights Distribution for North America.
Hitting screens later this year, apparently, the tale was originally filmed in 2011 and set up to be a series with ’15 chapters’ according to IMDB – however it never made it past the first episode and is said to now be making its return as a film with a new lease on life. Guess it’s a little hard to coax the Duchess back to her former life of acting these days – we’ll have to make do with re-releases. The actress, who previously played Rachel Zane in long-running series Suits, is seen in stills from the flick shimmying into a dress as she readies herself for a night out. Not long after, her pals head to a pub, where her character is seen snorting something in the bathroom with a male companion.
The whole scene is said to be extremely tongue-in-cheek, as beforehand her friend Heather suggested Meghan’s character was on the pull. Not so, as Dana insisted: ‘I dress this way for me. I’m not looking for a guy tonight. Trust me.’ She then walks into the room and shows off her outfit – a tight black mini dress, while her mate watches from the bed.
However, a sassy voiceover is then said to chime in and suggest Dana was jealous of the bust Heather was packing, as they added: ‘She’s considering buying a pair for herself.’ Oh, Meghan! The last film the Duchess starred in was made-for-TV’s Dater’s Handbook in 2016. That was while she starred as wily paralegal Rachel in Suits between 2011 and up ’til she left the show to move to the UK and marry Harry.
After she signed up for royal life, a whole bunch of distrubutors jumped on the hype with the re-release of her film Random Encounters, which saw cover art of the Duchess tagline about romance being a ‘royal pain’.
