The cast of Ocean's Eight is getting along famously.
That being said, some members of the cast are more famous than others. As Mindy Kaling joked on NBC's Late Night last week, she's often mistaken for co-star Sandra Bullock's assistant. And whenever Rihanna is on set, the paparazzi seemingly forget the rest of the cast even exists.
When Sarah Paulson appeared on Late Night Monday, she confirmed Kaling's story about Rihanna. "If you're standing next to her and paparazzi are taking pictures, it's like, 'Wow!'" the actress said. "It's because Rihanna's standing next to you—they're not interested in you at all."
The rest of the star-studded cast includes Awkwafina, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway. Hathaway's rep denied reports of on-set tension to E! News on Nov. 21, and Paulson reiterated everyone is A-OK. "I know people want there to be some kind of crazy drama going on between all the women, because how could so many women be in a room and actually get along?" the actress joked. "People look so depressed: 'What's it like?' 'They're great.' 'Oh, they're great?' 'Yeah, they're great!' 'Really?' They look so depressed."
Admittedly, things did get a little awkward between Paulson and Rihanna.
"We had this one moment where all of us were sitting around and someone mentioned that there was a big online sale. Everyone whipped out their phones," she told Seth Meyers. "I found a couple things and Rihanna was sitting next to me. 'What do you think of that?' 'Yeah, yeah.' Then I showed her a pair of pants I thought were the most hideous pants I'd ever seen, and she was like, 'I think those are cool.' I was like, 'Me too! I think those are so cool!' Rihanna is the definition [of cool]. There's a picture in the dictionary of 'cool' and then there's Rihanna."
Whenever they're all on set, Paulson finds herself humming Rihanna's songs. One time, Bullock gave her a friendly warning. "A couple times Sandy Bullock gave me the side eye," the actress said. "I'm like, 'Diamonds—sorry!' Every time I see her, it starts. It's bad. It's bad! It's not good."
Surely Paulson isn't the only cast member whose Rihanna obsession has peaked during filming. "I think when this is over," the host teased, "Rihanna is going to talk about how cool you were."
Paulson laughed and replied, "I'm not sure that that's true."
