Rebel Wilson is somewhat of a national icon in Australia, she is real, funny and good value for money. Since her begining in 2005 on a show called The Wedge in Australia she has cemented her way into our hearts.Rebel, while loved by most she has her critics, mostly on her shape.
However, Rebel's style of comedy is she never plays the victim, she is not fazed by her shape. While she never makes the statment that it is OK to be overweight, Rebel is who she is and her fanbase makes it clear they love her anyway.
Some people believe that Wilson plays too heavy on the " fat jokes" but this is Rebel's way. If you cant laugh at yourself, its a pretty sad world.Her friend Kate Jenkinson said" Rebel would mock her appearance whatever she looked like, thats who she is."
In Hollywood, where it is in to be thin, Rebel is an anomaly which has endeared her to her fans. It is a wonderful thing for young people to see that you should be your best self possible no matter what and Rebel is a great role model for troubled teens. You don't have to look like everyone else to be successful.
You can catch Rebel Wilson on Super Fun Night in it's debut season now.
