Rebel Wilson; Career Journey and Awards
Rebel Wilson is a successful comedy actress in Hollywood. She has made a name for herself in the show business internationally by just being herself. Wilson learned early in life that her figure made people laugh, which at first made her angry but then she decided to embrace who she was and how she looked and changed her plans. This is how she made a career out of her body shape.
Even though Rebel Wilson’s career revolves around her size, she does not tolerate on-screen nudity, and she has a strict policy against it. For instance, while filming the Brothers Grimsby, the people behind the camera had to look for a nude double to do the full-frontal nudity part because Wilson refused to do that kind of stuff. Rebel Wilson is proud of her size and shape since she sees it as an advantage. She also sometimes gains weight to get funnier roles while also using her brain and sense of humor to get to where she wants to go.
