Rebel Wilson Opens Up About Plus Size Representation in Leading Roles: 'It's Still Unfair'

Rebel Wilson rocks a hot pink top for a food run in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (February 25).

The 39-year-old actress picked up some food to go from Joan’s on Third and when she came back to her car, there was a ticket, but Rebel didn’t seem bothered by it.

Just recently, Rebel opened up about putting a positive message out there for plus size actors.

“I am the average size of the American and Australian woman, and yet plus-size actresses have less than one per cent of all leading roles, I think, even though they are the majority of women,” she shared in an interview.

Rebel continued, “If you think about it in those terms, it’s still really important to have representation like me in those type of leading-lady roles because it’s still unfair.”

“The beauty standards put up there, especially for young women, [they] can be unfair at times. I’m so proud of the film, of the message. In the works that I do, I am trying to put those positive messages in there.”
