In a recent interview with Mickey Rapkin for Marie Claire, Rebel Wilson revealed her stance on nude scenes, dating and how she overcame her childhood shyness.
Mickey Rapkin, who is the author of Pitch Perfect, interviewed the 36-year-old comedian and actress whilst she hiked through Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
On her childhood shyness, the Pitch Perfect star revealed how her mother would try and help her improve her confidence.
"I was so unusually shy, bordering on a social disorder. So my mum – one day she drives me to this community acting class. I was holding on to the car door and crying. She had to peel me off the car. She's like, 'I'll pick you up in two hours,' And she left me."
Rebel also revealed that she doubts she will ever be confident enough to take her clothes off for the camera. She recently worked with Sasha Baron Cohen on The Brother’s Grimsby where there was an opportunity for some nude scenes. Rebel commented,
"They wanted full-frontal nudity. We write in the contract, specifically, 'No nudity.' They got in another girl – this larger burlesque dancer from South Africa – to be a nude double. And they got her to do all this stuff. Sacha would go, 'See, she looks good.' I'm like, 'I'm not doing it. I don't care what you say.' “
Rapkin also took the opportunity to press Rebel about her dating life. Wilson revealed that she is currently too independent for a committed relationship. She added,
"I don't want to settle for someone if they're not right but, because I get to do such awesome fun stuff all the time, I really want to share that with somebody. We'll see. I'm definitely on the look out. I'm trying to put it out there, but I don't know whether the right person is in Hollywood – you only meet actors or musicians here.”
Rebel Wilson is set to return as Pitch Perfect character, Fat Amy, in 2017 for Pitch Perfect 3.
