Rebel Wilson has just dropped a trailer for her new movie and it is unreal.

Called Isn’t It Romantic?, the film is a spit take of romantic comedies.

The idea is absolutely genius and we can’t wait to see it.

Natalie thinks rom-coms have distorted women’s views on reality. No one magically ends up with a sexy and smart guy after a chance encounter, and no one EVER lives happily ever after.

But after a bump on the head, she wakes up to find that not only is her life way better, but she is trapped in a rom-com alternate universe.

She is stuck in the stereotype – lives a rich lifestyle, has a dream apartment, a gay sidekick, and a smoking hot boyfriend.

The film also features Priyanka Chopra, Liam Hemsworth, and Adam Devine.

The movie will be coming to theatres on Valentine’s Day, making it all the more perfect.

It looks GAS! Here’s the full trailer:

Rebel WIlson has taken to Twitter to detail two incidents of sexual harassment that she endured while working in the film industry. 

In a series of graphic tweets, she said:

'A male star, in a position of power asked me to go into a room with him and then asked me repeatedly to stick my finger up his ass.'

'All whilst his male 'friends' tried to film the incident on their iPhones and laughed. I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room.'

'I called my agent immediately and my lawyer made a complaint with the studio – basically to protect myself that in the event something similar ever occurred I'd be able to walk out of the job and not obliged to return.'

She detailed how she was then asked to 'support' the man: 'Later I was threatened by one of the star's representatives to be nice and support the male star.'

'I refused. The whole thing was disgusting. I've told hundreds of people in the industry the story in more graphic detail basically to warn them off this individual.'

She went on to describe a close call she encountered with a director at the beginning of her career.

'Earlier in my career, I also had a 'hotel room' encounter with a top director. I thought we were there to talk comedy,' she wrote. 

'Nothing physical happened because the guy's wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses and luckily she was yelling so loud that I could hear her and I bolted out of there immediately.'

'I was so naive the thought of anything happening apart from 'work talk' didn't even cross my mind.'

Rebel added that she does not believe that her experiences are as horrific as some faced by other women.

'I know, moving forward, that if I witness this behaviour, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be polite.'

Rebel Wilson has been awarded over €3 million (A$4.56m) in damages after articles published in a popular magazine made false accusations about the Australian actress.

The articles falsely claimed that Rebel had lied about her age, the origins of her first name and her Sydney upbringing, so that she could make it in Hollywood.

As a result, the Pitch Perfect star missed out on several film roles and other career opportunities.

Bauer Media, publisher of Woman's Day magazine, was found guilty of defamation after Justice John Dixon said it had failed to show the claims made against the actress had any substance.

According to Rebel's lawyers, the amount awarded is the “largest defamation damages award in Australian legal history.”

Rebel took to Twitter to express her relief after a “long hard court battle” and insisted the case “wasn't about the money.”

The actress went on to say how she would use the money help a number of charities as well as support the Australian film industry. 

She finished by thanking her fans for their love and support and revealed she was looking forward to getting back to her career.

In an industry which consistently focuses on the aesthetic, Aussie actress, Rebel Wilson, insists she has no intention of conforming to Hollywood's beauty ideals, and even credits her shape for her global success.

According to The Independent, the Pitch Perfect actress insists that despite what Hollywood would have you think, gaining weight actually did wonders for her career and celebrity profile.

Reflecting on the moment which caused her to question the link between appearance and audience appreciation, Rebel recalled being in a play with an actress larger than her.

 

Thanks again to @flaremag for making me their March cover girl. Issue out now!!

Speaking to The Telegraph, she said: "I was like: ‘Oh. That girls’ getting a lot of laughs, a lot easier than me. What is it?’ Because I don’t think there’s much difference in talent."

"And I remember distinctly thinking: ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter’. And then, I don’t know if it was mega-conscious, but I thought: ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe if I was a bit fatter…’ And then suddenly I was fatter and doing comedy,” she explained.

Rebel said her appearance has predominantly worked to her advantage, once telling Cosmopolitan: "When I walked into my agent’s office for the first time, they looked and me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you.’ And they signed me on my second day here."

The 36-year-old actress, who suffers from a hormonal imbalance, acknowledges that her perspective is far from the norm in Tinseltown, saying: "I saw my size as being an advantage whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage."

If we didn't love her enough already…

Our favourite tennis competition of the year is fully under way, and the celebrities have begun to flock to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in south London. 

The Wimbledon Championships, which is celebrating its 139th year, is a beacon for the who's who of popular culture.

Leading the pack this year is the beautiful Australian actress Rebel Wilson. The pitch perfect star arrived on Monday afternoon, rocking a green and white dress, paired with a chic white biker jacket, in keeping with the tennis theme. 

The hilarious Wilson, 36, is currently based in London, where she will make her West End debut this month as Miss Adelaide in a production of Guys and Dolls

Pippa Middleton was also in attendance on the first day of this historical sporting competition. The Aunt of England's future king looked stunning in a white dress decorated with poppies, paired with a red clutch and simple white heels. 

We are so excited the rest of the fabulous style throughout the tennis season!

There's something about seeing celebrities roast each other that we all totally love, but when they do it to the sound of serious beats?! Well. we literally can't get enough.

Facing James Corden in a rap battle last night, everyone's favourite Friend, David Schwimmer, proved that he's definitely no pushover when it comes to trash talk.

Like his character on Friends, David obviously spent some time 'working on his music', and, ladies, he let James Corden HAVE it.

The British host gave as good as he got though and went to TOWN on David's flailing career since taking his last sip of coffee in Central Perk back in 2004.

And if that wasn't good enough, out comes Rebel Wilson who, unsurprisingly, absolutely slaaaaaayed.

This is too good to miss out on, and we cannot stop laughing.

We might know her for her wacky role in Bridesmaids and her comedic timing in Pitch Perfect, but it seems Rebel Wilson is only dying to get her teeth into a meatier role, and it looks like she'll be channelling her inner Adele to do it.

According to emerging reports, the 36-year-old Aussie is set to play the Someone Like You singer in an upcoming biopic, and is on the edge of her seat until everyone's favourite Londoner grants the actress her blessing.

Giving an insight into Rebel's dream career path, a source close to the star told the Daily Star: "Rebel has always wanted to prove she can cut it as a serious actress. She knows that she can’t go on playing wacky fatgirl roles forever."

"She thinks that this role could be the making of her career and transform her into a major movie star," they continued. "This is going to be a huge challenge for her because Adele is a legend at the peak of her popularity."

While we all know Rebel can hold a note or two. Adele's loyal fans will need to know the actress can do their idol justice in the rags to riches story – something which Rebel reportedly insists won't be a problem.

Speaking on behalf of the actress, the insider continued: "Rebel can’t match Adele’s vocal talents but she can certainly sing. And with a little technical wizardry, she’ll sound just like her in the movie."

Rebel as Adele? We could get on board….

We know Rebel Wilson for being hilarious, but the actress seemed to have got a bit of a fright on a recent night out. 

The Pitch Perfect star took to Twitter to say that she reckons her drink was spiked while out in a nightclub in LA  earlier this week. 

According to Rebel, she only went out for one quick drink but left after she felt like something wasn't quite right. 

"Hey guys, but especially to all the girls out there, please be super careful about what you drink when out at clubs and bars at night," read the first in a series of tweets about the incident. 

"I had one drink last night at a trendy club which I believe may have been spiked with something. I felt super tired and disoriented

"Lucky for me, I only drank 1/3 of the drink and realised something wasn't quite right in time to get home before it really hit me."

"I got home safely but woke up this morning feeling like I'd been hit by a truck.

The 36-year-old took the opportunity to warn her fans to be careful with drinks when out on the town. 

"I never thought that would happen to me, but if it does please act as soon as you feel something strange and get yourself to safety."

Just last week, Rebel debuted a pretty shocking new hair colour that we are still really divided on as she gears up to begin filming for Pitch Perfect 3.

While we are all for celebs changing up their look from time to time, we can't say we were expecting this drastic change from actress and comedienne Rebel Wilson. 

The 36-year-old has ditched her flowing blonde locks in favour of a new daring shade. 

And that shade is bright orange. 

We can't say that this is our favourite look for the Pitch Perfect actress who usually rocks a gorgeous shade of blonde. 

Rebel was snapped leaving a Beverly Hills salon with her new 'do but it has not been confirmed whether the look is for a role or a personal change for the star. 

The Australian actress has been on a whirlwind promotional tour for her latest flick How to be Single and she is due to begin production for Pitch Perfect 3 in the next few months. 

We love Rebel but we kind of hope this look is for a film or else just a transitionary colour.

From S&M sex scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey to playing the field in her new flick How To Be Single, Dakota Johnson is certainly never short of men on screen.

But in real life, the actress says the situation is very different indeed.

"My life is weird," she insisted in a new interview alongside her How To Be Single co-star Leslie Mann.

"I'm just a loner loser without a boyfriend."

She hasn't always been flying the single card, of course – Dakota was spotted out in New York with her on-off boyfriend Matt Hilt just a few months back – but it seems for the moment things are quiet in the romance department.

And when it comes to finding love, Dakota prefers to keep things traditional – which means no blind dates, no speed-dating, and absolutely NO Tinder.

"I don't like that [online dating]. It freaks me out – I think it's creepy," she told the Irish Independent recently.

"I don't have Facebook or Twitter or anything like that. I don't like it. It makes me feel uncomfortable. The idea of meeting a stranger or presenting myself on the internet is so scary to me."

While the views of her How To Be Single character Alice don't exactly align with Dakota's outlook in terms of dating, the actress says the film was immensely fun to film, calling the process "one of the coolest things I've ever experienced."

Catch How To Be Single in cinemas from Friday February 19.

It's heartbreak in Hollywood as Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson and YouTube comedian Mickey Gooch Jr have decided to go their separate ways. 

Insiders of the couple believe that there is still a chance of reconciliation as Mickey still has strong feelings for the star. 

A source told US Weekly: "It's been hard for him. They're still friends, so you never know if they might get back together in the future."

News of the break-up comes just four months after the couple decided to go public with their relationship.  

The pair were first spotted together on a date in June this summer.

And just last month it was reported that the comedy-duo were set to wed at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas later this year – but after this news we doubt that's going ahead. 

In July, the couple enjoyed holidays in Spain and Dubai, while also partying it up in The Hard Rock Ibiza. 

We hope Rebel and Mickey reconcile because they look like one fun-loving couple!

It feels like it was only days ago that we piled into the cinema to watch The Bellas belt their way to the finals of their A Cappella World Championships.

Now it’s being confirmed that stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will be back for a third installment of the franchise.

Universal is setting a release date of July 21. 2017, giving us plenty of time to get in some much-needed vocal rest.

The surprise was almost given away by Rebel herself on Twitter but now that news has officially been confirmed she’s free to tweet about her excitement as much as she likes.

Anna Kendrick also took to Instagram to confirm the news herself, sporting that fresh fringe that sent the internet into a meltdown not too long ago.

Pitch Perfect 2 was nominated for four Teen Choice Awards this year as well as earning almost €62m at the box office in its opening weekend.

The highly-successful series returned for its second film with Oscar-nominated actress Hailee Steinfeld playing an important new member of the group.

As of now, there aren’t any plot details (boo!) being unveiled for the third film, but we do know that not only will fan favourite Fat Amy be making her return; Elizabeth Banks will be back to produce the project (hurrah!).

Considering the majority of the Barden Bellas had graduated college by the end of the second film, it’s assumed Pitch Perfect 3 will be following what happens to a super successful a cappella singing group when they leave campus for the real world.
