While most actresses end up losing weight when they enter (or are trying to enter) the movie industry, comedic actress Rebel Wilson just revealed that she actually gained weight to get more roles. In an interview with UK newspaper The Telegraph, Rebel admitted, “And I was like, ‘Oh. That girl’s getting a lot of laughs, a lot easier than me. What is it?’ Because I don’t think there’s much difference in talent.

And I remember distinctly thinking, ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter,'” Wilson said. “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.” She went on to confess, “I saw my size as being an advantage…whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

As Rebel and other plus-size actresses (i.e. Melissa McCarthy, etc.) continue to land starring roles in major feature films, hopefully more casting directors are driven to look beyond typical ‘Hollywood standards’ when it comes to filling roles.
