The award-winning star actress says she struggled with both English and content when she met the pop giant in an elevator in Los Angeles.
Renate Reinsve (34) has in recent weeks been able to note that American film critics have almost stood in line to pay tribute to her and Joachim Trier-directed “The World’s Worst Man” in his annual summaries of 2021.
The already Cannes award-winning Reinsve has been a part of the US to promote the film, which can be nominated for an Oscar.
Then it is natural to turn into Los Angeles – and there you can quickly encounter even bigger stars than yourself.
According to an interview with the fashion magazine Milk & Honey Reinsve did just that. There she describes a “embarrassing” meeting with Justin Bieber.
Red in tired face
– I had appeared in the wrong place for a meeting in LA, after ten hours on the plane I was quite confused, then I run around with the tiredest face ever, then I go into the elevator, just before the door closes again a guy slips in and it was Justin Bieber, says Reinsve to the magazine.
From there it becomes demanding, she says:
– Of course I turn completely red in my already stressed, tired face. He sees it so he asks very nicely if it goes well and I answer, but out of my mouth comes a very Drammen English where I explain that I am in the wrong place and have no idea where I am going, says Reinsve, who comes from Solbergelva in Drammen municipality.
According to Reinsve, however, Bieber handles the situation well:
– He is very kind and says that it is going well. Then it gets a little quiet so I ask, still in Drammen English, and red in the face, how are you? He answers it’s fine and lets me get out of the elevator first, and the door after, like a real gentleman, says the actor to Melk & Honning.
VG has been in contact with Reinsve, who does not want to comment on the meeting further. She nevertheless states that the meeting took place this winter.
There is already a connection between Reinsve and Bieber: They are both clients of star stylist Karla Welch, who MinMote previously mentioned.
Bieber is also ready for a new visit to Norway in the late summer of this year.
