Great that Elle shows a real plus size woman on their cover and in their magazine. A great statement. Because not only the fashion industry has to show size diversity, Hollywood.
The only thing… I am not vert happy how their styled her. Not really in a ‘fashion way’. The covers are amazing. The styling of the other pictures could have been better. And where are the full lengths? Call me next time, Rebel! Would love to style you… haha!

Rebel Wilson said: “You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”

The 29-year-old admitted that she generally has “zero fashion sense”, but has started to take more care in her appearance as her public profile has grown.

“It’s becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age,” she said.

“How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job which is basically the boys’ club,” she explained. “I have done three big movies with men – these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system.

“You aren’t being paid much and you start at a disadvantage with the script. Usually, you don’t have any cool jokes and you’re there to support the male actor.

“Those male roles are 90% written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20% there. It’s unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximise them.
