Rebel Wilson's new movie, Isn't It Romantic, is all about rom-coms, so she knows what she's talking about when it comes to love. In her expert opinion, however, her home town of Los Angeles isn't the best place for a love connection.
"L.A. is a bit of a challenge. I remember when we shot Pitch Perfect 3 in Atlanta. Boy, was I popular there! I should move to a city like Atlanta. I was considered a 10 there. Not to say the people in Atlanta aren't good looking. But Hollywood's beauty standards are very unrealistic."
Wilson also spoke about how proud she is to be bringing a more realistic perspective to the cinemas:
"I think the good thing about 'Isn't It Romantic' is that I am representing real women as a romantic lead and it's really refreshing. Seventy percent of American women are plus-size. Which is considered Size 14 and over. I am actually the average for an American woman, which is 16-18 yet in representation in films…it's less than 1 percent where you see plus-size girl starring in a film."
"I look for someone who is physically bigger than me. It makes you feel more feminine. If I feel like I'm going to crush a guy in a cage fight, then they are probably not the guy for me."
But more important to Wilson than their physical attributes was finding someone who's kind:
"It's wanting someone who is kind person. I've been so lucky to create this awesome life for myself that I want to find that person to share it with. It can be a roller coaster being in the public eye, so I guess I [really just want] genuine niceness and supportiveness."
Rebel's new movie is in theaters now, and fans are loving it!
