The thing we love about Rebel Wilson is, well, EVERYTHING!
The HIGHlariously smart and talented actress talked about her rise to fame in only a few short years, quickly becoming a go-to for some of the funniest parts in Hollywood! But it isn’t all laughs and rainbows.
In the May issue of Elle UK, Rebel talks about the industry and how it’s changed her life, forcing her to focus on things like fashion for the first time. Curious to find out why? Here are some of the HIGHlights:
On her Hollywood role:
“How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job, which is basically the boys’ club. I have done three big movies with men ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system. You aren’t being paid much and you start at a disadvantage with the script. Usually, you don’t have any cool jokes and you’re there to support the male actor. Those male roles are 90% written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20% there. It’s unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximise them├óΓé¼┬ª If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it.”
That’s the best kind of attitude ever. We will forever love those who make the most out of their situations!
On caring about fashion:
“I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now. It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age├óΓé¼┬ª You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”
Role model on FLEEK. Damn, we love this outlook!
On how she decided to act:
“I was in Mozambique [on a] trip. I caught malaria and the medicines caused a hallucination. I dreamt I won an Oscar for acting. I know it sounds stupid, but it was so real and I just knew then it would happen. When I came back, everyone was like: ├óΓé¼╦£Rebel, you can’t be an actress because you’re so smart,’ but I was sure.”
See?! How could you not love her?!
Hearing Rebel’s story totally inspires us to be the best, most hard-working versions of ourselves, and to enjoy the Olive Garden as much as we want! LOLz!
