Rebel Wilson Explains How Malaria Helped Her Realize Her Acting Dream

Rebel Wilson shows some attitude 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.”

Rebel Wilson Would Be Psycho If She Was Funny All Day

Rebel Wilson rocks a red lip on the cover of Elle Australia‘s April 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

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

On not being 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 f–king 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.”

On her famous friends: “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.”

On getting fashion advice 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.”
