When it comes to success or failure in Hollywood, it often boils down to people just going for it, knowing the risks and knowing what is at stake. That is what separates the people who make it from the people that don’t make it.
A lot of times, actors and actresses can overthink things and they stop themselves before they even get started. With Rebel Wilson, the comedic star everyone loves, she knew she just had to go for it in her career. For her, going for it was moving from Australia to the United States at age 30.
It starts with having confidence, though. As the old adage goes, “If you don’t believe in yourself, how is anyone else supposed to believe in you?” She believed in herself and because she believed in herself, she knew she was going to make it, no matter how hard it looked on paper or what the odds said. Odds don’t take into account things like heart, talent, and sheer determination. Read more: Isn’t Romantic Trailer – Hollywoodreporter and Isn’t Romantic Review
They also don’t take into account the fact Rebel Wilson found an agent within two days of being in Hollywood. It was because they liked what they saw, and they knew she was not just another Hollywood actress that looked like everyone else and acted like everyone else.
Everything in her life had prepared her for this moment. It started the moment her mom dropped her off as a young child at a community acting class and told her, “I’ll pick you up in two hours.” It started when her high school drama teacher told her to sign up for an Australian creative competition called Tournament of Minds.
It started when she went to an all-girls Christian High School. All of those moments helped shape her and prepare her for this big moment in Hollywood. She was ready to take off and take her career to the next level.

Since then, Rebel Wilson has been in Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect 1-3, How To Be Single, Pain and Gain, and her first leading role in the film, Isn’t It Romantic. She’s also producing movies these days.
She produced the aforementioned Isn’t It Romantic and she’s also co-producing the upcoming film The Hustle, which stars her and Anne Hathaway. It is a remake of the popular film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It is sure to be a major hit when it is released on May 10th.
As they say, “She knows how to pick them.” Rebel Wilson knows how to pick just the right roles that are going to attract an audience and also receive critical acclaim as well. It is because she keeps track of what people like and what they are interested in when they go to the movies.
