Kate Winslet is here for Wawa. The British actress said that while researching her role in Mare of Easttown, she subscribed to a local Delaware County, Penn. And visited a Wawa. She told the LA Times’ “Envelope” podcast: “It almost felt like a mythical place, Wawa. And so by the time I got there, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s real!’ It was like Lapland,” she said, laughing.
“Walking into a Wawa ultimately felt, it was kind of an honor in a funny way because to me, that was the heart of Delco. To finally walk through the door of a Wawa, I felt like, ‘Ah, yes, I’m here! I belong! This is where it’s at!’ Wawa.”
On Twitter, many understood her love of Wawa. Wrote one: “The @Tastekake display” is “life changing,” while another suggested another icon: “Imagine her reaction going to Bucc-ees for the first time…”
