In 2015, Rebel Wilson launched an edgy new clothing line in partnership with Torrid, a plus-size, high-end clothing brand. Bringing style and fashion to the next level, Rebel expressed the frustration of all women who struggle to find clothing that fits their bodies. In an interview with People magazine, Wilson said, "I'm currently like a size 18, sometimes a 16 depending on how good I've been, so I'm kind of just a bit too big for most regular clothing."

Even though she appears to be so confident in her body in public, she still struggles with her own self-esteem. She told Cosmopolitan that "Even though, yes, now I am in movies or whatever, I am still that [dorky] girl. People think you're really confident because you're an actress or whatever, but I'm like the worst."

When she was re-casted for Pitch Perfect 2, she hired a personal trainer. She told Elle UK that "I'm not doing it to look great or whatever but to have the energy to do all that [producing and acting] work. People wouldn't think it looking at me, but I can exercise!" Wilson has to stay physically fit in this type of fast pace, long-hour job. She also told Elle UK that "I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy."

Wilson is the perfect example of a healthy woman, even though her body type doesn't necessarily reflect our current societal "norms". She defies the stigma that bigger sized women are unhealthy. She even said in an interview with Marie Claire that she considers her size as "being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage."

See ladies? It doesn't matter how much you weigh. It's just a number. If you have the personality and drive to do something, go out and do it. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. It all starts with learning to love yourself.

So, here are 15 of our favorite Rebel Wilson quotes to show you that you are beautiful, no matter the size, and to not let anyone tell you differently.
