Wilson: Size an advantage in comedy

Associated Press Associated Press 6/07/2016

Bigger is funnier for Rebel Wilson.

The 36-year-old Australian actress says in a recent interview with Britain's Telegraph newspaper that gaining weight has helped her career in comedy.

She says she sees her size as an advantage, "whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage."

Wilson's career took off following a bit part in the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids. She's also known as Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect films.

She's appearing in London's West End in a revival of Guys and Dolls.
