Now this is refreshing!
Rebel Wilson paused on promoting her new flick How To Be Single to talk about her new fashion line — Rebel Wilson for Torrid which debuted in November.
On why the funny lady decided to take on the clothing biz, she told E! News:
"In the plus-size fashion market there wasn't really stuff out there that I saw that was kind of youthful and on trend. I didn't think I'd be able to design clothes. I thought, 'That's not in my repertoire.'"

As for who her dream client would be, the 35-year-old pondered:
"I'm trying to think. Why is Rosie O'Donnell coming into my head? That's not the right answer. I don't know. My clothes are for all the girls out there who are plus-size and just want something cute to wear for the weekend or for work."
Despite being new to the world of fashion, the Aussie beauty is definitely filling a void! Her new spring collection launches on February 7th.
Good for her!!
Fortunately, Miz Wilson says she's never felt Hollywood's infamous pressure to be thin:
"You know what? People say, 'Don't lose weight.' You don't want to be in that weird range of are you skinny or are you fat? Because how do you class yourself then? Weirdly, a lot of people say don't. But then I guess when you're doing movies with actresses who are super skinny and whatever and you got to do a photo shoot side by side…then you notice you're twice the weight they are. But for me, it's just about being comfortable in your own skin. You never want to be like too unhealthy because that's bad. But you just want to be comfortable with who you are, whatever your size."
Although she doesn't obsess over her weight, the Pitch Perfect star says she goes to great lengths to make sure she stays healthy:
"I exercise like a mofo. I do personal training like five times a week. I also love playing tennis. I'm a beast on the court. I've been playing with a lot of retirees lately and they are very competitive but same ability athletic-wise. They're really good."
Ha! We knew she had to throw a joke in there somewhere.
But starring in movie after movie really does require the actor/actress to be in great shape:
"When we film movies like How to Be Single, we shoot like 16 hours day and you're like giving it all day every day so you really got to have that stamina."
Makes sense! YGG!
