Magda reveals truth about Kim K ad
Magda Szubanski has revealed a behind the scenes secret from her "iconic" Uber Eats commercial with Kim Kardashian.
The comedian reprised her role as Sharon Strzelecki for the ad which was released on the weekend and received rave reviews online.
We like to give Adland a hard time but the person who walked into a brainstorming session and said “Kath & Kim but it’s Kim Kardashian” deserves an Order of Australia.— Adam Liaw (@adamliaw) November 24, 2019
I just saw an uber eats ad with Sharon Strezlecki and Kim Kardashian wearing netball outfits saying "noice" and I think it's a masterpiece— Alexia Mitchell (@lexilegs99) November 24, 2019
There's been speculation that Szubanski and Kardashian didn't actually film the commercial together, but instead shot their parts separately.
This morning Szubanski set the record straight about the rumour during an interview with Nova's Fitzy and Wippa.
"Sharon had a very busy schedule," she said about her legendary character. "She had to film her stuff a couple of days later. They were in the same room, just not at the same time."
Despite not getting to meet Kardashian on set, Szubanski told the radio duo she did have a "long chat" with the reality star on the phone who confessed she had no idea what netball was.
"It was so weird because I said, 'Did you know what netball was?' She said, 'No, we have this thing called the Met Ball?'" Szubanski laughed. "She was like, 'What is this?' But she was totally up for it, didn't baulk at anything. With each new thing that was suggested to her, I was like, 'Seriously? She agreed to do that?'

"She said that afterwards that she and her sisters were watching the rushes (raw footage) and just crying with laughter," Szubanski said. "They totally loved it."
The commercial took 12 hours to film with the help of 150 production staff, and Szubanski teased that we haven't seen the last of Kim and Sharon's interaction.
"There's more to come," she said on Nova. "We really had a bit of fun with it. It was great because they let me improv and muck around."
Kardashian is not the only A-list celebrity who is a fan of Szubanski's Kath & Kim character.
"I was invited to the Katy Perry concert and I met with her afterwards and we were mucking around doing all the 'noice' and 'look at moi' kinds of things," Szubanski said.
