Rebel Wilson has a fun personality and is not afraid of being herself which is why I adore her. Proving she is here to stay, Rebel snagged the May 2015 cover star of ELLE UK magazine. On the beauty issue cover shot Doug Inglish, she is wearing white sheer top with a blown out hairstyle.
In the issue, Rebel opens up about self–belief, being a woman in Hollywood, her responsibility to her fans, fashion and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview and to see more images. For more on Rebel's feature, go to ELLEUK.com and pick up a copy on newsstand today.
On wanting to become an actor:
‘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: “Rebel, you can’t be an actress because you’re so smart,” but I was sure."
On being a female comedian:
‘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 – 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 maximize them.’
‘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.’
On being fit:
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.’
