Rebel Wilson's Hallucinations Made Her Dream of Becoming an Actress

Rebel Wilson's Hallucinations Made Her Dream of Becoming an Actress

Rebel Wilson is pretty in pink on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s May 2015 issue, out on newsstands on Thursday (April 2)!

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On realizing she wanted to become an actress: “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.”

On 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.”

On being a woman in Hollywood: “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. 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. 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.”
