7 Most Surprising Claims Meghan Markle’s Former Costars Have

Simon Rex Chose To Go Hungry Rather Than Betray Meghan

By now, you’ve probably noticed that many of Meghan’s former costars stick with saying quick and polite things about her. This is likely because they don’t want to run afoul of the Royal Family or Meghan herself, both of whom are known to be quite litigious. However, it was one of Meghan’s least famous costars that took the biggest step to not only support her but to protect her as well.

The actor in question is Simon Rex, and he and Meghan made super-brief appearances on the old sitcom Cuts. They starred together way back in 2005, and last year, Rex made a surprising confession to The Guardian: multiple publications had reached out to Rex in order to have him lie and claim he had a secret love affair with Meghan. One publication offered him $70,000 to lie, but he turned them down despite his major financial struggles. “I was broke as f***! But I’ll be on food stamps before I do that.”

He even went so far as to tell Meghan what these publications were trying to do. For his honesty, Meghan wrote him a beautiful letter thanking him, and she summed her thoughts up succinctly: “It’s nice to know there are still good people.” In turn, Rex framed the letter and gave it a place of honor in his home.
