Talk about an iconic duo! Tara Reid says she “loves” Meghan Markle and wants her to star in her new horror movie Masha’s Mushroom. “I think we’d really get on,” the Sharknado actress exclusively tells In Touch of her potential friendship with the Suits alum.
“One of my first offers for Masha’s Mushroom was to Meghan,” the blonde beauty, 44, reveals, adding that the former royal, 38, is “producing a bunch of stuff” as well. “I was on the phone to her agent trying to get her in the movie, trying to find out the price,” she says. However, Prince Harry’s wife is one busy gal.
“We could afford the price, that wasn’t a problem at all, but her agent was like ‘Tara, she’s booked,’ but that was before quarantine,” the Big Lebowski star says, referring to the coronavirus pandemic. “Who knows, things may have changed? I’m going to put an offer out to her again.”
Tara, who is teaming up with Vivica A. Fox for the new film, has been working on her movie project while in lockdown. “It looks pretty good,” the American Pie alum reveals. “We have the finance and I think Universal will distribute so we’re in good shape with that one. We’ve done all the pre-production.”
While Tara has been utilizing her time in quarantine to work on “business” for her movie, she admits social isolation with her boyfriend, Nathan Montpetit-Howar, has been “tough” as they both struggle to adjust to their new normal. “It is a make or break kind of thing because you’re always together and we argue because there’s no break, but we’re getting through it,” she explains.
During this time, Tara is also participating in a campaign called “Love & Hope” created by artist Narine Arakelian. With the hashtag #LoveXXL360, the artist aims to donate N95 masks to hospitals in exchange for celebrity social media posts. The program is using the proceeds to help families who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I just hope everyone stays safe and strong and try any way they can to be happy,” Tara says. “A lot of people are lonely at this time, so I hope people reach out to each other and check-in.”
