Taika Waititi says | The Independent

Taika Waititi has admitted he was surprised by the amount of media attention he received once he started dating Rita Ora.

The Marvel director and the British singer have been in a relationship since 2021 and are said to have gotten married this summer.

Ora was the theme of Louis Theroux’s season finale Louis Theroux interviews… Series in which the host spoke to Waititi about how he met Ora through Robert Pattinson, with their pair originally being friends before they met.

The pair were then interviewed together by Theroux, in which each referred to the other as their “best friend”.

“Taika, were you aware that you’re getting more of a spotlight?” Theroux asked, to which Waititi quipped, “I don’t know about that, Louis. I think it was probably the other way around. Don’t you think so, darling?”

Waititi got serious and then replied, “Um, yeah. I enjoyed hanging out with you and then people started taking pictures of us. Then for about five minutes I was like, ‘Oh, they’re talking about that.'”

Ora explained, “The thing is, in this industry you’re not like, ‘Oh, would I like to make music?’ come and even think about it. It’s one of those things that you have to deal with once you’re in, so it’s not like going to school for it.

“It’s really hard to digest because you’re not trained for it. You’re just trained to go on stage and sing and make music.”

Ora said she prefers to be in Los Angeles because the paparazzi “leave her alone more” than in the UK, where they often camped outside her home.

While speaking about the public interest in her life, Ora also spoke about her experience of being accused of being the woman Jay-Z allegedly cheated on Beyoncé with, known as “Becky with the good hair.”

Ora described the rumors as “insane” and said any hints she was the other woman were a “coincidence”.

“I mean that, man. A pinch of salt,” she said to Theroux. “You have to take things with a grain of salt. And that’s insane. I was just going through this until a good friend, Katy Perry, gave me a funny badge that said ‘not Becky’.”

Louis Theroux interviews… is now on BBC iPlayer.
