We hope this doesn't give too much away, but in the new Ali Wong flick Always Be My Maybe, there is one character who could be described as a "home wrecker" — and that character looks an awful lot like Bravo's Top Chef judge Padma Lakshmi.
The cookbook author recently shared a clip from the movie on her Instagram feed. In the scene, Wong is scanning her ex's Facebook page when she spots photos of him gallivanting across the globe with a rather gorgeous new girlfriend. "Is that Padma Lakshmi?" Wong's character Sasha muses aloud. Then, gritting her teeth, she says, "Stupid, beautiful, talented Padma Lakshmi. (Spoiler alert: It is Padma, indeed.)
So, how does Padma herself feel about this shout-out? "A year ago a producer asked if I would lend my name and likeness to an unnamed Ali Wong project. She’s one of my favorite comedians so I was like 'Of course!!' Little did I know it was to be a homewrecker in [Always be My Maybe]," she wrote.
Padma then offered an impromptu movie review: "This is such a sweet movie and such a win for Asians everywhere. Love you and rooting for you [Ali Wong.]"
Take a look at the clip, below:
