A number of websites have recently reported that Rebel Wilson has joined the cast of the movie adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s famous play Cats.
These reports were verified when Ms. Wilson reported it herself on Twitter, stating that she was excited to join such a talented and versatile cast. But Rebel Wilson is a star in her own right and has a worldwide fan following.
She gained popularity in productions such as Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect and will soon be seen in the Hustle, Jojo Rabbit and Isn’t It Romantic in which she shares a producer’s credit.
In the movie entitled Cats, Ms. Wilson plays the Gumbie cat named Jerryanydots. This is the lazy cat that sits and sleeps in the sun during the day but stays busy dancing, cooking and baking all night. The eccentric cat even teaches home economic skills to mice and employs the local cockroaches as her trusty helpers. Wilson reports that she relishes this funny, outgoing character but she wasn’t always able to be so comfortable on the screen.

Born in 1980 in Sydney Australia, she was a shy and introverted child. She was so withdrawn that her mother forced her to attend acting classes to try to draw her out of her shell.
She was always good in school particularly in mathematics and she actually found a home in drama class. Her drama teacher encouraged her to join the debate team and experiment with improv and she credits this for helping her find her true personality.
Rebel Wilson began her career as a dramatic actress but found that people found her funny and that she was happier in comedic roles. From a very self-conscious person to one who has a strong sense of confidence, she has undergone a character transformation.
Now she is focusing on becoming a more- healthy person. Rebel Wilson wants to change her appearance, not to please others but to feel better overall. She is eating a more balanced diet that is gluten free and is substituting green juices for some of her meals.
She has also employed her own personal trainer so that she can keep doing her own stunts. She currently has a clothing line for those who are looking for fashion in a larger size. Her goal is for all people to follow their own dreams and be comfortable in their own clothes and as well as in their own skin.
