Rebel Wilson on Her Positive Body Image, Dream Guest-star and More


“Extra’s” Renee Bargh paid a set visit to ABC’s new comedy “Super Fun Night,” 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 isn’t so different than her “Super Fun Night” character Kimmie Boubier, “… When they tested the show early on they were like I don’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 … If I never went in to international stardom, perhaps I would have become a lawyer.”

As far as guest-stars go, “Super Fun Night” has already had Brooke Shields, Molly Shannon, Bob Saget, and Jacki Weaver, but that hasn’t stopped Rebel from her one dream guest-star. Renee asking Rebel, “If you could put it out there for anyone to be on the show, who would it be?” Rebel’s choice, “ Channing Tatum … potential love interest…”

On Rebel being so comfortable in her own skin, Renee asked, “Is this something you want to encourage other women to feel the same way?” Rebel explaining, “Yeah, I don’t think I’m very vain. Even though I’m on a TV show, I don’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 shouldn’t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.” As far as maintaining her positive body image with the pressures of Hollywood, Rebel says, “You see other actresses who are like oh I can’t really eat much lunch today because I’ve got that scene in my underwear … I’m a little bit chill. But you know what you do need is stamina. I don’t ever want to be too unhealthy because writing in a show, starring and producing you need a lot of energy.”

And on the rumors that Rebel is on board with Jenny Craig for a weight-loss campaign, Rabel explaining, “What’s interesting is when you sign deals to be in TV shows or movies, you can’t really change your appearance. So if I wanted to do a Britney or shave my head, I couldn’t really do that.” Rebel assuring her involvement in a weight-loss campaign is a rumor saying, “… Nobody’s come to me directly … I did in Australia try to do a campaign. Didn’t quite work out.”

You can catch “Super Fun Night” Wednesday nights on ABC at 9:30 PM/8:30 PM C.
