Rebel Wilson Refuses To Slim Down To Fit Hollywood Standards

'I feel really lucky to be the body type I am.'

Rebel Wilson has no plans to lose weight because she's convinced her body type is what sets her apart from other actresses in Hollywood.

The Pitch Perfect star isn't desiring to look like anyone else in the business and believes staying true to herself is what has given her career a big boost.

"Being unique and different was a really good thing," she tells Cosmopolitan UK. "When I walked into my agent's office for the first time [in 2009], they looked at me and said, 'Wow, we have nobody on our books like you'. And they signed me on my second day here [in Hollywood]."

"I wouldn't ever want to compete with what I call 'the glamours'the really gorgeous people," she continues. "I'm about the brain, the heart, and what's on the inside. I feel really lucky to be the body type I am."

Wilson goes on to admit she has become more health conscious since moving to Los Angeles in 2010, but she still eats her emotions and battles not to stress about her diet.

"I love me some ice cream or dessert, and it comes at times when I'm happy or sad," she adds. "So when I have an incredibly successful day, I want to celebrate and reward myself with food. If I've had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort. I bought this hilarious slogan sweater the other day that says, 'Food is my only friend.' I thought it was really cute.

"You would probably describe it as emotional or stress-eating. I don't do drugs; I don't really drink... so eating is my one vice. I wouldn't ever want to totally give it up."

"[But], living in Los Angeles you learn a lot about health," she continues. "I now drink green juices and I'm trying to do gluten-free, but I don't do it 100 percent [of the time]. I'm not a maniac!"
