Rebel Wilson Might Reconsider Her No-Nudity Clause on One Occasion
This is a girl of her word.
Rebel Wilson explores her childhood as a shy young girl in an interview for Marie Claire UK with “Pitch Perfect” author Mickey Rapkin. The actress says that her introversion hindered her social life so much that her mother forced her to take acting lessons as a remedy.
“‘I was so unusually shy, bordering on a social disorder. So my mum – one day she drives me to this community acting class. I was holding on to the car door and crying,” says Wilson. “She had to peel me off the car. She’s like, ‘I’ll pick you up in two hours,’ And she left me.'”
She still has her reservations on baring all, as she tells the magazine that there was a no-nudity clause in her contract for her upcoming film with Sacha Baron Cohen, Grimsby, which caused the film to hire a “nude double.” Though Cohen’s encouragement to film the nude scenes herself fell on deaf ears, Wilson says that she would consider stripping down for “a more serious movie.”
“You want to know that the people [behind the camera] have a certain sensibility and decency,” she explains. “And a lot of times in comedy they’re not those people.”
