7 Quotes And 7 Reasons Rebel Wilson Has Given Us About Life!

Be you!

It’s no surprise that Rebel Wilson is just as captivating off-screen as she is on it!

The Glee-inspired musical comedy film we have all been waiting for has finally hit theaters everywhere: "Pitch Perfect 2."

One of the stars, Australian comedian and actress Rebel Wilson, adds a whole new dimension of humor to this sequel and many other movies she has appeared on. Starring in other comedies like "Bridesmaids" and "Bachelorette," Wilson is nothing short of inspirational in her field of work.

While she is making us laugh a majority of the time by cracking jokes and over exaggerating situations, she has also been a great source of advice for people around the world. It’s no surprise she’s just as captivating off-screen as she is on.

Check out these 7 quotes where she’s given us important words of wisdom for every facet of life:

1. There is always more than what meets the eye.

"I think I appear very innocent and soft, but I'm actually very dark and edgy. It's a weird dichotomy."

It’s baffling how someone can seem a certain way on the outside, yet be completely different on the inside. People often assume things about others based on appearances, stereotypes, stigmas, etc. For instance, because Rebel has blonde hair and a youthful face, she is expected to be "innocent and soft," when in reality she is the complete opposite. You can’t judge a book by its cover ... ever.

2. You don’t have to live up to society’s standards.

"There are so many glamorous actresses, but you know what? In the real world, nobody looks like that."

Let’s be honest, Hollywood has set some ridiculous rules and expectations for how women should look. What is "pretty" these days isn’t even realistic. Just because you don’t look like Beyonce on the red carpet or Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala, it doesn’t mean you aren’t beautiful too. As Rebel says, in real life, no one looks like that anyway. It’s all a balancing act of makeup, surgeries and products.

3. Believe in yourself even when other people don’t.

"When I was just a girl in Sydney, no one thought, 'Oh, she's going to be a movie star'. No one. I had to get by with actual skill and talent."

Just because you aren’t a cookie cutter it does not mean you can’t achieve your goals. Other people are always going to doubt you and tear you down if you don’t meet the stereotype or if they are jealous of something you do. The point is believing in yourself trumps all. You can accomplish anything you put your mind to if you have the right skills and dedication, as Rebel did.

4. Remember who was there for you when you had nothing.

"At school, nobody thought I was smart, and I became smart. Nobody wanted to be my friend, and then I had lots of friends."

Isn’t it ironic how when you are at the bottom no one wants to associate with you, but once you start climbing the ladder of success, suddenly everyone just loves you? You can’t forget who was your friend when you had nothing and who followed you through your transformation. Use others’ doubts to improve yourself.

5. Respect is everything.

"Work hard to achieve integrity in your work and your relationships with the people you work with."

Establishing a level of compassion, trust and respect in the workplace, especially when you are making vital connections, is so important. If you want people to appreciate you and what you do, or if you simply want to advance the ranks of your field like Rebel has, you have to dedicate yourself to building a positive reputation and strong relationships.

6. It’s OK to have Fangirl moments.

"I’ve only met [Brad Pitt] once before. Well, I didn’t really meet him. I kind of just stood behind him and smelled his hair. It smelled really good."

Yes, even famous people themselves experience Fangirl struggles. Rebel got excited about simply smelling Brad Pitt’s hair, just as we flip out when we just see a movie star from a distance while visiting a big city. The point is, it’s normal, and if Rebel does it, why should we be ashamed? Fangirl out, ladies.
7. No matter what, love yourself.

"Even when I'm playing someone named 'Fat Amy,' I'm all about confidence and attitude."

Rebel is not phased by name-calling, stereotypes or character roles she’s asked to play because she is always ready to rock anything with confidence. No matter what you look like or where you come from, you have to be proud of it and embrace it. It’s an extremely attractive quality when you can take anything you’re given and just work it.

Be a Rebel, literally.
