Rebel Wilson Champions Realistic Role Models at the MTV Movie Awards
When Rebel Wilson joined her fellow Pitch Perfect 2 castmates onstage during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, she put the statement in statement outfit. The actress donned giant feathered angel wings, a bedazzled bra, and a pair of black leather leggings with the word “THINK” spelled out across her butt. The ensemble channeled a Victoria’s Secret Angel vibe, which was Rebel’s intent.
While explaining the inspiration behind her outfit, she went on to praise Pitch Perfect for its positive outlook and message, Cosmopolitan reports. The movie’s cast represents women of different sizes, nationalities, and personalities.
“I think one of the good messages in the movie is that you’re all beautiful and that sometimes girls will look at Victoria’s Secret models and think they have to model themselves after that, but I really don’t think that’s best,” Rebel said. “Even though they’re called models, they’re not the best people to model themselves after.”
Rebel wraps up her explanation by encouraging girls to start thinking in these terms: “It’s about what’s up here,” she said while pointing to her head, “not what’s here,” pointing to the glittery "THINK." Before the awards show, the actress also rocked a cape-dress to represent her “girl powers," a fitting choice for a woman accustomed to making super heroic statements.
