Australian comedienne Rebel Wilson has made it big in Hollywood with hit film after hit film, from her hilarious parts in Bridesmaids and What to Expect When You're Expecting to a voice role as a pirate kangaroo (what else?) in Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Now, the actress who came to fame on Aussie TV in Fat Pizza and Bogan Pride is front-and-centre as bride Becky in the Bridesmaids-esque rom-com Bachelorette, with Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher and True Blood's Lizzy Caplan as her bridesmaids.
While the film is packed with out-there humour covering topics from cocaine use to abortion, but Rebel drew the line at making fun of a serious issue: eating disorders.
"There actually was a scene in the original script when Becky was bulimic. And it was so dark. Kirsten and I had a day of rehearsals before we started filming, and we talked about that scene," Rebel told Huffington Post in a new interview.
"It's a disease that lots of people suffer with. It was really kind of glamourising bulimia, and so we decided to change it. And you see that Reagan [Kirsten Dunst's character] in the movie obviously had had an issue with bulimia in the past."
Rebel asked writer-director Leslye Headlund to alter the scene, which she did.
"The bulimia scene was the scene that was too much, but it was a huge monologue that Becky had about the best way to describe it was about the euphoric feeling. And I didn't think we needed it."
Rebel is also unafraid to broach the topic of her own body image in a cast of slim Hollywood beauties.
"As a comedian, I think, well, obviously I am overweight, and sometimes you have to use what you've got," she said.
"Like if you've got a big nose and there's a character with a big nose, you're like, "Why not?" I'm not shy about playing characters like that. But I do like to mix it up, so I wouldn't want all my characters to somehow be associated with being big."
