Possiamo sempre contare su Rebel Wilson per i suoi ruoli abilitanti nelle commedie di benessere. Dalla serie “Pitch Perfect” al suo nuovo film Netflix “Senior Year”, non solo offre risate, ma ci ispira ad amare noi stessi lungo la strada. Wilson ha parlato della positività del corpo prima e dopo la sua perdita di peso, dicendo a People: “Mi sento triste se qualcuno non ama il corpo in cui si trova. Vuoi celebrare tutti i tipi di corpo, ma voglio anche incoraggiare le persone a esserlo. sano.” Oltre alla sua recente trasformazione, Wilson bilancia la sua bellezza con il cervello, poiché ha anche una laurea in giurisprudenza presso l’Università del New South Wales.
After an incident involving disturbing behavior from a co-star happened early on in her career, Wilson has prioritized creating a safe working environment as a producer.
Rebel Wilson was harassed by her co-star
Rebel Wilson bravely shared her experience with sexual harassment she endured from an unnamed former co-star in a May interview with People. "He called me into a room and pulled down his pants," she recalled. It was awful and disgusting. And all the behavior afterwards — this was all before #MeToo — where they kind of tried to destroy me and my career." Although the movement hadn't yet taken off, Wilson used her law background to report the incident to her agency as well as the studio. Today she regrets not dropping out of the film, even though she did nothing wrong. Since she's never shared the actor's name, it's unknown if he ever faced any sort of reckoning as the #MeToo movement unfolded years later.
Wilson opened up about harassment in 2017, sharing another story about a director. "A male star, in a position of power asked me to go into a room with him and then asked me repeatedly to stick my finger up his a**," she tweeted. "I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room."
Now that Wilson is in a position of power herself, she wants to look out for her co-stars to make sure similar incidents don't happen. Speaking about the dynamic on the "Senior Year" set, she told People, "Because there's a lot of young cast in the film, I wanted to make sure there's a lot of respect for everybody."
