Rebel Wilson isn’t shy about addressing her weight – in fact, she views her shape as an asset.
“I took something that was seen as a disadvantage – no one thinks, if you’re fat, that you’re going to be an actress and everyone’s going to love you – and turned it into a positive,” she told Australia’s Daily Life.
Wilson, 28, believes her physique works especially well for comedic roles. She’s set to reprise a character named “Fat Amy” in the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2.
“Bigger girls do better in comedy,” she said. “I don’t know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It’s very hard to laugh at someone who’s very attractive, I think. And normally those people don’t have a great personality anyway.”
The Bridesmaids star (who also holds a law degree!) adds that she has no plans to slim down.
“I do have these dreams, like, ‘What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?’ But then I think, that’s never going to happen.”
