But the 42-year-old is “happy now”.
For a while, she said, she was on the exclusive dating app Raya, which many people in Hollywood use to meet visionary partners.
But she met her current love through a friend who established them.
“He’d known each of us for at least five years and was like, ‘Yeah, I think you two would hit it off’ and we did,” she said.
Getting to know someone through mutual friends is a comfortable experience, Wilson said.
“It makes things escalate faster because it’s from a trusted source,” she said. “So you say, ‘Okay, I can trust this guy, they’re legit.’ They’re what they say they are, and it’s something on the app that you don’t really know.”
Wilson has not identified who she is currently dating. Her new film, “Senior,” will be released on Friday.
