In an exclusive interview with Instyle Magazine, the Hollywood actress Rebel Wilson yesterday reminded us that her success was the result of her perspiration and talent rather than her looks.
“I’ll put it this way — I never got anywhere because of my looks. I got places because I had a good brain and a good imagination.”
What make her uncomfortable is that people pay too much attention to what you look like or the way you dress or make up.
“People pay attention to what I wear. I should try to class it up a little bit.” I like being comfortable, and I come from a family where people didn’t really care what you looked like. They didn’t judge you on that.”

“I think it comes from not having much as a child and seeing other people have stuff and just wanting to be financially secure. I always wanted to make something of myself.
“I always believed I would be rich and successful even as a very young child, and I would say that to people. If you manifest [what you want], I really do think it comes true.
“It’s not so much about having money. I like doing good, charitable things. But it is also nice when you don’t have much. Like the first time I came to Paris, for example, I was on a Contiki tour, which was about 1,200 bucks for a month. You only got the food that was on the tour. I broke the bank when I bought some Pringles from a gas station. I put
