Rebel Wilson On Using Her Weight to Her Advantage

Rebel Wilson has never saw her size as a disadvantage. In fact, while others in Hollywood faced the constant pressures of obtaining the “perfect” body type, Rebel has never even second guessed her weight.

Speaking with The Telegraph, she said,

“I saw my size as being an advantage, Whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

She added that even at the start of her career she noticed that “fat girls” got all the laughs and felt encouraged to pursue comedy.

“I was like: ‘Oh. That girl’s getting a lot of laughs, a lot easier than me. What is it?’ Because I don’t think there’s much difference in talent. And I remember distinctly thinking: ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter.’ And then I don’t know if it was mega-conscious, but I thought: ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe it I was a bit fatter …’ And then suddenly I was fatter, and doing comedy.”

Hah! We love it! We personally think Rebel would be hilarious no matter what size she was,  whether she ballooned up or shrunk  down.
