Rebel Wilson comes from the land down under. Her creative spark and raw talents have created a buzz around her career, and more recently her film, Isn’t It Romantic. The actress has made a name for herself globally, and no one works harder in her craft than Rebel Wilson. She is as smart as she is funny and her way with people is beyond impressive.
It doesn’t take long for a viewer to admire Rebel in her craft, and one can definitely tell that Ms. Wilson has all the confidence in the world both on and off screen: she gets into this intense zone when she is performing, as all of the greats do. Yes, the actress may be bold and confident in today’s day and age, but it hasn’t always been that way for the actress.
As a little girl, Rebel Wilson remembers being on the shy side. Born on March 2, 1980, in Sydney, Australia, Wilson was raised by a loving family. Her parents were professional beagle breeders and never discouraged Wilson to chase her dreams in life.
In fact, few things make Rebel sadder than when she sees a person unable to chase their dreams as a result of life events getting in the way of things. Rebel needed to follow her call. She is a creative gem, after all.
Rebel Wilson remembers a time in high school that shifted her confidence and gave way to a future career in acting. While attending an all-girls high school in her native Australia, Rebel remembers her drama teacher encouraging her to pursue competitions that showcased talents in improv and performance. Rebel took these words to heart. The rest is history.
After having initial success as an actress in Australia, Rebel moved to the United States in 2010 at the age of 30. It didn’t take long for the comedic genius to land a role in a big Hollywood production.
Staring alongside Kristen Wiig, Wilson was a hit amongst viewers of 2011’s Bridesmaids. Her career and role only grew larger in Hollywood as she garnered more and more attention, playing Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect franchise and appearing in other big name Hollywood films over the years.
Her latest film is set to hit theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day in the United States. Isn’t It Romantic puts a change to the traditional romantic comedy genre.
Wilson plays Natalie, an architect from Australia now living in New York City. Natalie is a bit close minded when it comes to love, especially those found in romantic comedies. She deems them fictional. Along the way, she gets knocked out and wakes up to find her world is a romantic comedy. Will she get out?
