Wilson continued: “I’m glad you’re enjoying your new swimming pool and hot tub but I’m trying to sleep. I can hear everything you say, even the British accent. If you keep making noises After 10 p.m., I’ll call the police. We seriously have rules here in West Hollywood.”

“But when we met, it was like a total synchronicity, we were both very relaxed and we were pretty professional too and I saw that in her and she saw that in me but we I don’t compete because we just like each other’s work.”
