Danielle Macdonald Dishes About Willowdean & Bo's Connection in 'Dumplin'

Willowdean and Bo have an amazing connection in Netflix’s newest film, Dumplin’.

Danielle Macdonald is opening up about the couple and why their special relationship.

“I’m glad I did it. I think girls need to see that she drove herself crazy about that, because that’s her insecurity,” she told Elle about Will’s freak out after her kiss with Bo, played by Luke Benward.

“That’s something that she needs to learn to be okay with as well—he wouldn’t be touching her if he didn’t want to.”

Danielle adds that Bo isn’t “meant to represent the hottest guy that’s super popular. He’s not a star football player. It’s not about that at all. He’s just a guy at her work who actually has his own life and his own challenges. He just happened to find someone that is real and who he connects with, so why wouldn’t he like her?”

“She sees him as this amazing guy, but he also sees her as this also powerful, beautiful girl,” she says. “That’s the point. We shouldn’t be looking at this and being like, how could I get involved with this guy? I think that’s more the point of it—that there doesn’t have to be a barrier, and it also doesn’t matter what other people think, because they’re both into it. I think that’s pretty special.”

Dumplin’ is streaming on Netflix now.
