Embracing Her Funny Side
This past March 2nd, Rebel Wilson celebrated her 39th birthday. But this birthday was special. Some of her best friends surprised her with a day of cake making and catzercize, a new form of exercise.
Ms. Wilson posted videos on her personal Instagram page showing videos of her and her friends dancing and showing off their cat costumes. The cat costumes were related to her newest film about to be released.
The movie Cats, coming out later in 2019, is just one of a long line of movies that Rebel Wison has been part of. She is probably best known for her role as Fat Amy from the Pitch Perfect movie series. Her confidence and her funny nature really made her shine in that role. But Pitch Perfect was not her first role.
Rebel Wilson was born in Sydney, Australia, and she was a very shy child. She was so shy that her mother forced her to go to an acting class hoping that would help. Rebel slowly found her voice and decided to make a change after reading a book when she was fourteen. Read more: Isn’t it Romantic Trailer | Glamour and Pitch Perfect for Rebel Wilson | VanityFair
The book she read stated that a person’s character finalizes right around the time a person turns fifteen years old. Because of this, she decided to join the debate club and to speak up more often.
During her high school years, Rebel had a teacher that gave her a push to join a creative competition. This is where she started to shine. To this day, Rebel gives some credit to this teacher for her encouragement.
Rebel has always been a funny person. It is just part of who she is, but she never set out to be a comedy actress. That sort of happened on its own. She was always heavier set, and her size drew some laughs. She decided to roll with it, and it paid off in a big way.
Before coming to the United States, Rebel was in two Australian films and had some success. In 2010, Rebel ventured to the U.S. She was thirty years old. Rebel’s breakout role in the United States was the highly successful movie, Bridesmaids. This served as the launching pad for more and helped her secure her infamous role in Pitch Perfect.
Rebel Wilson has always stood up for what she believes in, and she has always been herself. She has seen great success with her outlook on life, and it looks like that will only continue with her new movie coming out later this year. She has a great following and a huge group of friends behind her. Her latest Instagram post shows that, and it will be amazing to see what she does next.
