In the last decade, Rebel Wilson has managed to make herself a household name because of the many prominent film roles she’s had. Throughout this, she’s been lauded for bringing a hysterical wit and confidence to each of her roles; furthermore, her deadpan sense of humor has also managed to help her differentiate herself from the many other potential stars that were beginning their careers at the same time.
While she initially held a variety of roles in her native Australia at the beginning of her career, it wasn’t until she moved to the United States that her career really began to pick up. The catalyst for this success was her appearance as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, which went on to become a franchise in its own right.

Since then, Rebel Wilson has gone on to bring her comedic talents to a variety of other prominent roles, with one of the most recent being a starring role alongside Liam Hemsworth in Isn’t It Romantic. During this time, the majority of her fans have fallen for her confidence and humor.
However, Wilson wasn’t always as outgoing as she is today; in contrast, she’s noted that her childhood shyness bordered on a social disorder and she had very few friends for a long period.
Noting this, Wilson’s mother decided to do something about it. With that in mind, she began searching for things that would help boost a young Wilson’s confidence and quickly discovered acting classes. This came as a surprise to Rebel Wilson, who only found out about the classes once she arrived at the first class.
Because of that, these didn’t catch on too quickly, but Rebel Wilson decided to push ahead anyway. On top of this, she realized that personality traits become permanent from quite a young age; with that in mind, she decided to spend more time and effort trying to come out of her shell and grow her confidence levels.
Because of that, Wilson decided to join a few different debate clubs, which would help her in several different ways. One of the most obvious of these is the fact that it allowed her to make more friends, which naturally brought a boost. However, these debate clubs also gave her experience performing in front of an audience.
Wham. Scam. Thank you man. ♀️
