Rebel Wilson never intended to become a comedy actress. She really wanted to play more in drama movies and hoped for a career like a British actress Judi Dench. She explains this in an interview Heat magazine.
"I dreamed I became an actor like Judy Dench. I haven't tried to be a comedian," she explains. "When I started theater in Australia, people often laughed when I went up. At first I thought it was offensive. The more seriously I played, the more people laughed. Then I decided to do comedy."
However, the Wilson family is not convinced of the comic talent. "My family can't laugh at me. They're all funny."
Wilson takes his work seriously as a comedian. "I'm trying to approach characters that I played as seriously and directly as possible, creating this approach."
Wilson can be seen in the film with Anne Hathaway from May 16th Hustle. She is best known for her role in films, such as Pitch Perfect, Bridesmaids and How to be united.
