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.

Rebel Wilson Gained Weight to Land More Roles in Comedy

Rebel Wilson gets candid about her career in this new interview.

The 36-year-old actress revealed that she actually gained weight to land more comedic roles after she worked with a “bigger” girl who was getting more laughs than her.

“And I remember distinctly thinking: ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter,’” Rebel told The Sunday Telegraph. “And then, I don’t know if it was mega-conscious, but I thought: ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe if I was a bit fatter…’ And then suddenly I was fatter, and doing comedy.”

During her breaks in between roles, Rebel said, “I’ll take six months off, and just do a total transformation. But then, so many people go: ‘Don’t you do it!’ But I think: ‘Why not?’”

She added, “I saw my size as being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”
