Hey guys. I have added some new shoots of Rebel from her appearances in the new issues of Elle. The first set is from her current appearance in the April issue of Elle Australia and the second is from her upcoming May 2015 issue for Elle UK. I will have scans up as soon as they become available. So check them out.
PEOPLE.COM – If you thought you couldn’t contain your excitement for Pitch Perfect 2, we have your fix (and a link to the trailer). Rebel Wilson landed the May cover of Elle UK and opened up in her new interview about the moment she knew she wanted to be an actress, how she navigates the acting world’s “boys club” and how style is becoming an important part of her life.
Although she brings her A-game to the red carpet these days, that wasn’t always the case. “I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now,” she says. “It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.” (Maybe she’ll be next to start her own fashion line?)
And despite her own jokes at her expense, Wilson says she takes good care of her body to make sure she’s at the top of her game. “You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy,” she says. After all, a lot of energy is needed to do what she describes as her “two” jobs. “How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job which is basically the boys’ club.” And a big part of that energy is keeping fit so she’s ready for everything.
“I have done three big movies with men — these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system,” she explains. “Usually, you don’t have any cool jokes and you’re there to support the male actor — those male roles are 90 percentwritten and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20 percent there. It’s unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximize them. If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it.”

ELLEUK.COM – Rebel Wilson is ELLE’s May issue cover star – the pitch perfect (ahem) choice to front our inaugural beauty issue, out 2 April.
The unstoppable Australian actress, who scooped the Rising Star Award at this year’s ELLE Style Awards, was shot exclusively for ELLE by Doug Inglish.
Inside the issue, Rebel speaks candidly to ELLE’s Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy about self–belief, being a woman in Hollywood and her responsibility to her fans ahead of the release of her new film, Pitch Perfect 2, in April.
First coming to our attention in Bridesmaids in 2011, in just four short years, Rebel has carved out a career as one of Hollywood’s most in demand leading ladies but it was during less than conventional circumstances that she decided to pursue her love of acting: ‘I was in Mozambique [on a] trip. I caught malaria and the medicines caused a hallucination. I dreamt I won an Oscar for acting. I know it sounds stupid, but it was so real and I just knew then it would happen. When I came back, everyone was like: “Rebel, you can’t be an actress because you’re so smart,” but I was sure,” she recalls.
The 29-year-old actress also opens up about the travails of being a woman in the male-dominated sector of comedy:
‘How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job, which is basically the boys’ club. I have done three big movies with men – these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system. You aren’t being paid much and you start at a disadvantage with the script. Usually, you don’t have any cool jokes and you’re there to support the male actor.
She continues: ‘Those male roles are 90% written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20% there. It’s unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximise them.’
Sounds tough? It is.
‘If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it.’
But as well as being the poster girl for comedy, Rebel’s beginning to flex her fashion wings now too, revealing that she feels a duty to her fans: ‘I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now. It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.’
Plus, a girl after our own hearts, Rebel points out that it’s all about keeping fit: ‘You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.’

MTV.COM – Treblemakers frontman Bumper Allen is in a whole lot of trouble. When we next see Adam DeVine‘s egomaniacal music man in “Pitch Perfect 2,” he’ll be in rare form — very rare, and very weird form, according to Devine himself.
“I get very emotional in this movie,” he told MTV’s Josh Horowitz at the South by Southwest Festival while promoting his new film “The Final Girls,” about what to expect from his turn in the “Pitch Perfect” sequel. “It’s weird to watch. I’ve seen some clips from it and I’ve thought, ‘Oh, God! Am I too real?’ It’s so real! I get misty-eyed and stuff!”
It’s easy to see why Bumper’s getting all sappy on us, seeing as there seems to be something real brewing between him and Barden Bellas’ very own Fat Amy, played by Rebel Wilson.
“There’s a lot of love,” DeVine teased. “There’s a lot of love there.”
“Pitch Perfect 2,” reuniting Bumper Allen and Fat Amy with the rest of the acca awesome gang, hits theaters on May 15. “The Final Girls” does not yet have a release date.
ELLE.COM.AU – Say hello to our hot new April cover girl, REB-ELLE
Inside the issue discover everything there is to love about Rebel Wilson (aka Pitch Perfect’s Fat Amy)… Find out how Wilson ended up moving to America from the Western Suburbs of Sydney, why studying law was just filling time until she made it as a big-shot Hollywood actress, why she finds red-carpet appearances so intimidating and why buying chicken-flavoured chips at Coles is one of her favourite after-dark activities when she’s in Australia.
Our new issue will land on newsstands Monday, March 23.
Five lessons learned from Rebel Wilson:
She admits she’s not funny all the time…
“Most people who know me know I’m not switched on all the time. I don’t like to be like that in real life, because it’s draining. If I’m how I am as Fat Amy all fucking day… I can be sometimes, but I’d be a psycho if I was like that 24/7. You gotta chill out and just be normal for a bit, I say.”
All her friends are legit famous – actors, singers and pop stars…
“I have a lot of celebrity friends. But they’re all Hollywood friends. You can’t call them if you fall over and break your leg, but if you’re having a BBQ and wanna chitchat, you hang out with them, or you go to their house.”
She prefers to wear flats…
“I can’t wear high heels. I suck at wearing high heels.”
She learned her best model moves from Tyra Banks
“I never thought I’d be the type of girl who’d be doing, like, fashion shoots. I used to watch some of the reality shows about models and then, weirdly, now I try to incorporate into my fashion shoots the skills I learnt from watching those shows. It’s like thanks Tyra, cause you’ve given me like all the cool tips. Like how to smile with your eyes.” Handy!
Her favourite thing to wear off-duty is cartoon tees…
“In my real life I tend to wear T-shirts with cartoon characters on them. I love T-shirts!”
On set, she nails it every time…
“I hate people who do a lot of takes. I like to nail it and then go home. I like to crush it in, like, two takes.”
