Rebel Wilson isn’t exactly humble about her success in a new interview with Australia’s Daily Life: “The odds of an Australian girl making it in Hollywood is, like, one in 25 million,” she said. “I’m lucky. But I also think I worked hard. I deserve it.”One caveat to Wilson’s success is that she’s constantly being asked about her weight. The plus-size actress plays a beloved character named Fat Amy in the “Pitch Perfect” films, but Wilson’s outlook is that her larger size has been an advantage:

“I took something that was seen as a disadvantage – no one thinks, if you’re fat, that you’re going to be an actress and everyone’s going to love you – and turned it into a positive.”And bigger girls do better in comedy. I don’t know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It’s very hard to laugh at someone who’s very attractive, I think. And normally those people don’t have a great personality anyway.”

We see her point about how the entertainment industry has made a space in comedy for bigger women (see: Melissa McCarthy, Mo’Nique, etc). But it’s not entirely fair to suggest attractive women are less funny and have bad personalities. Skinny-shaming is an entirely different hellscape and even Victoria’s Secret model Sara Sampaio had to go on record last year with the message “Every body is different.” Indeed.
