Rebel Wilson has spoken about how she feels a “responsibility” towards to look good because of the lack of women her size in Hollywood.

Wilson, 29, told Elle Magazine that although she has “zero fashion sense” she felt compelled to take it more seriously after realising that many girls “were beginning to notice what I wear”.

The actress, perhaps best known for her role on comedy Pitch Perfect, also told the magazine about the struggles of being a female in the male-dominated “boys club” comedy industry.

“You aren’t being paid much and you start at a disadvantage with the script. Usually, you don’t have any cool jokes and you’re there to support the male actor,” she claimed.

In the cover interview for the magazine the Australian-born star said: “I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.”

The actress, reportedly banned by the directors of the first Pitch Perfect film from losing any weight, is also careful to point out that despite her size she exercises regularly: “You need to be physically strong for this job.”

Wilson, whose first major international role was in the highly acclaimed comedy Bridesmaids, is promoting the second instalment in the Pitch Perfect series.
