Rebel Wilson Talks "Super Fun Night" in Cosmopolitan September 2013
While rocking a few hilarious poses for the Gillian Laub-shot spread, the "Pitch Perfect" actress revealed real-life situations she put in the show's script.
Check out a few highlight from Miss Wilson's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Cosmopolitan.
On embarrassing scenes in the show:
"I'll often use my real stuff in my writing because it comes across as more authentic. There's a scene where my dress rips, and something like that happened when I first came to America. I got set up on a lunch with Jason Segel. He was the first Hollywood person that I got to have lunch with and chat about life with or whatever. So I thought, I'll try to look my best, and I wore my best leather jacket. When I sat down, a sharp edge on the chair snagged my jacket, and it just ripped. I was devastated but trying to hide it because I didn't want to ruin the lunch. I'm always ripping clothing. It's so embarrassing."
On other real-life moments:
"In the pilot, my character gets invited to drinks, but she can't get into the club—that happened to me recently at Skybar. Anna Kendrick was having her birthday party there, and it was a fancy place. So I get there with Hana Mae Lee from Pitch Perfect, and I've got a birthday gift so I'm clearly going to the party, and this big huge bouncer wouldn't even look us in the face. We were like, "Hi"…and then two models came and he let them in."
On learning how to balance:
"I just hired Lena Dunham's assistant [laughs]. I've never had an assistant before! My showrunner is from '30 Rock', and he said Tina Fey would shoot all day, finish at 6 or 7 p.m., and then go into the writer's room for a few hours. I'm trying to get physically fit so I'll have the stamina. I got a personal trainer. I'm not doing it to look great or whatever but to have the energy to do all that work. People wouldn't think it looking at me, but I can exercise!"
