With all her accomplishments, Rebels started out as a shy child. Her mother took her to an acting class, even though she cried not to go. She pushed herself to be more sociable by joining the debate and drama clubs. Wilson said that if it wasn’t for her drama teacher she didn’t know where she would be.
Rebel says she is grateful that she lives in a time when women can be independent and pursue their dreams. She states she is comfortable with being single. She is glad that being single is not a stigma for young women these days.
Rebel Wilson didn’t start out in comedy but found that people just automatically found her funny. It actually made her very mad that people were laughing at her. She feels it is easier for people laugh at fat girls and used it to her advantage with great success.
She says she doesn’t want to be what some would call the beautiful people. Rebel is more about what is on the inside and being smart enough to use her brain which has served her well. She has become a household name which shows how smart she is with her career.
