Actress Rebel Wilson, someone who has never been shy or ashamed of her size, is one of the cover models for the latest issue of Hunger Magazine, which also features an interview with her. The magazine picked 5 celebrities they consider ‘revolutionary’.
In her interview, Rebel, known for playing the token ‘big’ girl in movies like Pitch Perfect where her character referred to herself as ‘Fat Amy”, takes on critics who have blasted her for making ‘fat’ jokes as part of her career.
She told Hunger Magazine:
“As long as I look like this, I’m going to make fat jokes. All comedians have to use their physicality, so I use my size.”
She also tells Hunger why she thinks the Hollywood industry is changing and how she’s happy to be a part of that change:
“Before, it was all glamorous types like Kate Hudson who served as, like, the female equivalent of a ‘straight man’. Now it’s turning, and it’s really good.”
You can read the entire interview when the latest issue of Hunger Magazine comes out on Thursday.
Rebel also has a new TV show coming out this Fall called Super Fun Night, which debuts on Wednesday, October 2 on ABC.
