Fat, Beautiful, and Funny
Rebel Wilson was not on my radar until last night when she appeared on Craig Ferguson promoting the hit movie, Brides Maids. Now I am in love with this Australian cutie from West Sydney.
Rebel currently stars in the hit movie Brides Maids but this is not her first American role. She has also appeared in a tiny role as a Goth girl being interviewed in Ghost Rider. And most recently as a guest on the TV series Rules of Engagement.
If you look at the video clips below of some of her work (both Australian and US) you will see that she is quite a chameleon and totally funny.
Watch for It!
Rebel has a new sitcom called, "Super Fun Night". I am so excited for her. I was slow to warm up to all the characters but it is quite fun. It is awesome to see another plus size woman getting her own show. Funny comes in all sizes!
Rebel's Late Night Interview
When I first made this lens featuring Rebel I found the interview with Craig Ferguson that I talked about in the intro on YouTube but recently CBS decided they didn't want anyone to share it which is unfortunate because it was a great interview. Luckily here is a 3 part interview with Rebel Wilson on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. Enjoy!
