Rebel Wilson Nixes On-Screen Nudity and Relationships
In the July issue of Marie Claire U.K., actor/designer Rebel Wilson talks about how she got into acting, why she won't reveal everything on-camera and who she's looking for to settle down with.
How she overcame shyness: "I was so unusually shy, bordering on a social disorder. So my mum—one day she drives me to this community acting class. I was holding on to the car door and crying. She had to peel me off the car. She's like, 'I'll pick you up in two hours,' and she left me."
Why she kept her clothes on for The Brothers Grimsby: "They wanted full-frontal nudity. We write in the contract, specifically, 'No nudity.' They got in another girl—this larger burlesque dancer from South Africa— to be a nude double. And they got her to do all this stuff. Sacha [Baron Cohen, actor/producer] would go, 'See, she looks good.' I'm like, 'I'm not doing it. I don't care what you say.'"
Finding the right one: "If you're a successful woman you want to find the right person, but you don't necessarily need them. I don't know whether that sounds weird, but there's a whole crop of young women who are in that situation now. I don't want to settle for someone if they're not right but, because I get to do such awesome fun stuff all the time, I really want to share that with somebody."
