Rebel Wilson ‘has weight loss dreams’

Rebel Wilson wonders if losing weight would affect her career.

The Australian actress rose to prominence after playing Fat Amy in the hit film Pitch Perfect. Her blonde hair and fuller figure has made her stand out from peers, but the star does admit she occasionally thinks of shedding the pounds.

“I do have these dreams, like, 'What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?'” she revealed to Australia’s Daily Life. “But then I think, that's never going to happen."

It isn’t the first time the 28-year-old has maintained she is happy with her shape. And while many of her peers follow a strict diet, Rebel is comfortable in her own skin.

“I just like being who I am," she told Daily Mail Australia. "No pressure could change that."

In fact the funny woman thinks her physique helps her in the comedic roles she has become known for. And with her set to reprise her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect 2, it looks like casting directors agree.

“Bigger girls do better in comedy," she added to Daily Life. "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."

Rebel doesn’t let her plus size hold her back in the fashion stakes, and she has walked the red carpet in some gorgeous outfits lately, including a hot pink dress with peplum detail which she wore to the premiere of Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. However, she previously admitted she doesn’t make the choices on her own.

“I now have a stylist because I don’t know fashion,” Rebel told the New York Post.
