Rebel Wilson is an actress that is well known for her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect. She has reached success, but it didn’t come easy for her. She was born on March 2nd of 1980 and she was extremely shy growing up.
Her mother had to force her to go to a community acting class to try and overcome her shyness. Wilson feared she would be shy permanently so she joined debate clubs to learn to be less shy. Her teacher convinced her to join Tournament of Minds which brought her even further away from shyness.
Wilson is also a feminist. She mentioned in an interview, she was saddened when she would witness intelligent women not fulfilling their dreams, because of getting married or having kids too young. She is happy to live in a time where women can go out and live their dreams.
When she was younger and joined the Australian Theater for Young People, she started acting for serious roles, but people would always laugh while she was on stage. Initially, she would get angry, but learned that she fit comedy roles much better. Read more: Isn’t Romantic Trailer – Hollywoodreporter and Isn’t Romantic Review
