â€œExtraâ€™sâ€ Renee Bargh paid a set visit to ABCâ€™s new comedy â€œSuper Fun Night,â€ starring Rebel Wilson, where Rebel opened up about maintaining a positive body image in Hollywood and weight-loss campaign rumors, her dream guest-star and more.
Rebel explaining how she isnâ€™t so different than her â€œSuper Fun Nightâ€ character Kimmie Boubier, â€œâ€¦ When they tested the show early on they were like I donâ€™t think Rebel could be a lawyer and I go, but I am! I really have two degrees from University, an arts degree and a law degree â€¦ If I never went in to international stardom, perhaps I would have become a lawyer.â€
As far as guest-stars go, â€œSuper Fun Nightâ€ has already had Brooke Shields, Molly Shannon, Bob Saget, and Jacki Weaver, but that hasnâ€™t stopped Rebel from her one dream guest-star. Renee asking Rebel, â€œIf you could put it out there for anyone to be on the show, who would it be?â€ Rebelâ€™s choice, â€œ Channing Tatum â€¦ potential love interestâ€¦â€
On Rebel being so comfortable in her own skin, Renee asked, â€œIs this something you want to encourage other women to feel the same way?â€ Rebel explaining, â€œYeah, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m very vain. Even though Iâ€™m on a TV show, I donâ€™t really care what I look like that much and I think women out there should just be happy with the way they look. They shouldnâ€™t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.â€ As far as maintaining her positive body image with the pressures of Hollywood, Rebel says, â€œYou see other actresses who are like oh I canâ€™t really eat much lunch today because Iâ€™ve got that scene in my underwear â€¦ Iâ€™m a little bit chill. But you know what you do need is stamina. I donâ€™t ever want to be too unhealthy because writing in a show, starring and producing you need a lot of energy.â€
And on the rumors that Rebel is on board with Jenny Craig for a weight-loss campaign, Rabel explaining, â€œWhatâ€™s interesting is when you sign deals to be in TV shows or movies, you canâ€™t really change your appearance. So if I wanted to do a Britney or shave my head, I couldnâ€™t really do that.â€ Rebel assuring her involvement in a weight-loss campaign is a rumor saying, â€œâ€¦ Nobodyâ€™s come to me directly â€¦ I did in Australia try to do a campaign. Didnâ€™t quite work out.â€
You can catch â€œSuper Fun Nightâ€ Wednesday nights on ABC at 9:30 PM/8:30 PM C.
