Being a unicorn is being born different and embracing who you are without trying to change it. That statement best describes Rebel Wilson. Rebel Wilson has played many roles in the acting industry, but the one that made her most popular is her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect. However, she has been rocking her Rebeliciousness from way back.
Rebel Wilson’s origin is Australia, having been accepted in the USA entertainment industry is, therefore, an achievement. She says that when she walked to her first agent, they said they did not have one of her kind, so they signed her up the second day. Wilson is still working on her accent to sound like an American. To achieve this, she listens to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Honey Boo Boo. She repeatedly watches the shows and even repeats what they say to master the skill. Although Rebel Wilson, qualifies to become a full USA citizen, she still hasn’t made that decision.
One of the unique things about Rebel Wilson is her body size. When many plus size women shy off and feel the need to shed off the weight, she is pretty much contented with who she is. One challenge size 18 women face is lack of fashionable fitting clothes. Instead of throwing a pity party, Wilson has come up with her cloth line. She says that she did not know she had the skills, but she sure did. Read more: Rebel Wilson Joins Cats Movie Musical and Rebel Wilson Isn’t it Romantic First Book
It would interest you to know that Wilson is a qualified lawyer. She has used that knowledge to fight for her interests while signing contracts. Wilson also went to the school of acting and worked really hard to become the accomplished lady she is today. This is why she demands self-respect in the industry. For instance, she ended up presenting the 2015 MTV VMA award without the two others who were listed to because she felt they were in different pages and had different beliefs. She explained herself saying it had nothing to do with self-hate.
Rebel Wilson is looking forward to experiencing a different world in the entertainment industry. She says that she is ready to undertake even serious roles because, in acting school, they are not only taught about comedy. Her role model is Robin Williams who is pretty funny in comedy and does equally good when acting serious roles.

At some point, we need someone to tell us we are good enough and push us to do what we are capable of doing. Besides her family, the other person Wilson credits for her success is her high school teacher, Mrs Bowmaker. She says her social life was awkward, but her teacher encouraged her to participate in Tournament of Minds, which is an Aussie Creative Competition of different categories. Participating in the competition and coming out as a winner significantly contributed to the foundation of her career.
