Rebel Wilson was born in the ‘ghetto side’ of Sydney in 1980. She has three siblings-Ryot, Liberty and Annachi, their parents being Beagle breeders. She is known as Fat Amy in the favorite film, Pitch Perfect, and is known for her brilliance, humility, and confidence.
However, Rebel was not always intelligent as a young girl and suffered from a social disorder that resulted to unusual shyness, and although there were hints of humor in Rebel Wilson, it took time for her to decide to face the world boldly finally.
She found out that people’s personalities grow and solidify at 15 years of age. So, she struggled to participate in activities that made her speak more. She became a member of debate clubs as she had decided that it would be wise to find a character before time ran out.
Her drama teacher in high school, Mrs. Bowmaker encouraged her to participate in creative competitions that were based on improvising and performing, despite Rebel’s awkwardness in socializing. She thanks her drama teacher for the push as she is sure that without her, she would not have made it the far she has.
Her career as an actress started as a malaria hallucination while in South Africa. She saw herself receiving an Oscar Award, and when she went home, she turned this bug into reality by enrolling at the Young People’s Australian Theatre, while also studying at the South Wales University.
In the beginning, she did not have an interest in comedy, but as she performed stage roles that were serious people kept laughing. She got frustrated and the more she acted, it seemed to get funnier for the people. So, she grabbed the chance thrown at her, as she thought that people found fat to be funny scientifically or weirdly. So, her game plan to use this card in her acting career became her breakthrough in Hollywood.
Rebel had already established herself a name in the film industry back home, in films such as Bogan Pride and Pizza before moving to Hollywood at the age of 30. She struggled to overcome the hurdles that came her way, until she was a success across the world. Rebel Wilson admits that it is incredibly challenging to work in an industry that is dominated by males. She, however, says that there is always a way out.
Rebel Wilson will star in the upcoming romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic alongside Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, and Adam Devine. Rebel Wilson takes the role of Natalie, an architect based in New York. Natalie works very hard to be noticed in her job, but she is more likely to be requested to deliver coffee and not to design the world’s next biggest skyscraper.
In the film, Natalie hates romantic comedies, which is also true for Rebel Wilson. Rebel Wilson hated romantic comedies as a child as she felt that they did not happen in real life. In a clip, a childhood version of Natalie is watching Pretty Woman, but her mom interrupts her to remind her she can’t get that. Twenty-five years later, Natalie is seen lamenting to her coworkers how all romantic comedies suck.
Natalie’s life takes a new turn after a mugger attacks her on a subway platform. She manages to fight him but runs into a poll as she runs away. She loses consciousness and wakes up in a decorated emergency room. As she leaves the hospital, Natalie notices that New York has changed. It’s much beautiful, and it does not stink. Upon getting home, Natalie finds out that everything in her house has been replaced with more attractive and expensive stuff.
The closet has every shoe and clothes she ever dreamt of. She calls 911, but the respondent hangs up on her as her complaint is dramatic. The situation gets worse when Natalie gets her episode of Pretty Woman when Liam Hemsworth pops his head out of a limo and shouts to her. In the trailer, there are hot scenes of Liam and Rebel Wilson. Rebel realizes that the sequence of events is happening again and again.
Natalie tells her coworker, Josh, that she is losing her mind after hitting her head on the wall. It does not take Natalie long to realize she is trapped in her PG-13 romantic comedy. She must find love to get out. The trailer has other amazing scenes like a kiss in the rain and several street dances with Priyanka busting her moves.
Well, almost that’s all. But what is a romantic comedy without a love dilemma? Rebel Wilson has two love interests in the film, Liam Hemsworth and Josh. When she gets out of her romantic comedy, Natalie realizes that she had feelings for her coworker. She was too blind to notice the attraction earlier. The film is available in theatres.

Rebel Wilson started acting back in Australia. Her road to fame has not been that easy. She had a canceled film, a lover who got away, and the doubters. However, she managed to succeed against all the odds. Rebel Wilson has won several awards including the Best Breakthrough Performance Award by MTV.
