If you're looking for Rebel Wilson, the hilarious Australian actress best known for Pitch Perfect and Bridemaids, you can find her smoldering on the May cover of Elle UK.

The full-figured star, who once said that "bigger girls do better in comedy," told editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy that she's developed an interest in fashion now that she's a visible role model for young women.


"I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age," she says.

Poised to reprise her role as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect 2 (in theaters May 15), Wilson considers fitness a necessity for surviving in Hollywood, but not for the superficial reasons you might think.

"You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day," she explains. "I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy."


Hear that, bodyshamers?
