Rebel Wilson is talented and hilarious and she’s not afraid to admit it. But when you’re known for a character named “Fat Amy,” you’re going to get some questions about your personal health regimen.
On the cover of ELLE UK‘s May issue, Wilson addresses concerns about her body’s size head-on. And she made the same point that lots of larger-sized women do: even if she may be bigger in size, what’s important is that she is healthy, strong and energetic. “You need to be physically strong for this job,” she told the magazine. “I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”
Wilson also says she’s only “getting into” fashion as a responsibility to her fans. She explained:
“I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now. It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.”
Well, hey, we think she looks pretty great here:
Wilson’s ELLE UK cover is also a great excuse for us to post the “Pitch Perfect 2” trailer (woo hoo!). The movie hits theaters May 15.
