Rebel Wilson Says She's 'Twice as Talented' as Sacha Baron Cohen
Rebel Wilson smiles for a photo with a young fan while leaving a performance of Guys and Dolls on Tuesday night (July 5) in London, England.
The 36-year-old actress recently opened up about working with Sacha Baron Cohen on the movie The Brothers Grimsby and why she thinks she’s “twice as talented” as him.
“Sacha was like we want Dawn to be a very authentic Northern girl. He was like ‘Rebel, it took me a month to get the accent so you have to work really hard,’” she told the Evening Standard about the direction she received for her character.
Rebel says that she learned her accent in just two weeks, which was half the time it took Sacha to master his accent.
“Would you say I’m twice as talented as Sacha? According to those statistics, yes,” she joked.
