All it took was one look at Rebel Wilson‘s outfit at the Pitch Perfect press junket for me to instantly become obsessed with her. Her hair was perfectly coiffed, and she was dressed in a pink “R” varsity jacket, little velvet pirate slippers (like these) and massive name plate rings a guy in jail made her. I got really excited to dig into her various red carpet outfits of the past, and discovered that she seems to be really into classic glam with the occasional twist. Observe her elegant garnet number above – understated, pulled together and beautiful, with just a touch of bad-ass mixed in.
Check out 15 of her coolest looks in the gallery below – a couple are a little weird but most are seriously sleek, sweet and sometimes sexy.It’s evident that she approaches fashion with a serious eye as well as a sense of humor. And her best accessory? That insanely gorgeous smile.
Exclusive Video: Rebel Wilson Was In A Christian A Cappella Group In High School
Here’s the greatest thing we learned recently: Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was in an a cappella group called Twelve Voice at her Christian high school. Amazing, right? The actress told us what it was like being part of Australia’s “dorkiest” singing troupe, in which she had to wear “peasant blouses and long velvet skirts.”
“There was no dancing, there was no cool choreography or cool songs when I sang a cappella,” she said. “We’d have to stand like this — we weren’t allowed to do any cool moves — and just sing church songs.”
She then blew our minds by singing us an example of the kind of tunes they got down to. A terrible song has never sounded so awesome.
“I thought a cappella was totally dorky, and then when I came to America and saw The Sing-Off, I though, ‘It’s pretty sweet,’” she said.
But if you really wand “pretty sweet,” you have to see Rebel as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, in which she handles singing her heart out and getting belted with burritos with grace.
Also, please check out Rebel’s amazing ring bling, which she told us was made for her by a guy in jail. Read more…
Some of us love to pore over every fall movie preview we can get our hands on, reading reviews from Cannes and Toronto, marking our calendars with premiere dates and pre-ordering our tix on Fandango as soon as we can. For others, that sounds way too much like homework. That’s why we made this quick little guide to the top 10 flicks we’re dying to see, with the kind of blurb that won’t tax your short attention spans. And sure, we’re leaving out a whole bunch of Oscar contenders, guilty pleasures and interesting films we’ll eventually watch, but this is a list based on fandom, gut instinct and, yeah, intense crushes. Here they are in (order of premiere date):
The Perks of Being a Wallflower: Logan Lerman will make you cry, you will wish Emma Watson and Ezra Miller were your best friends, and you will go home and hunt down your long-lost mixtapes. In select theaters September 21.
Pitch Perfect: No one does smart-talking like Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson is our new imaginary girlfriend, and we think Elizabeth Banks (who produced) can do no wrong. In theaters September 28.
Alex Cross: We can’t wait to see how Tyler Perry does with someone else’s lines … as a sexy detective, no less. And Matthew Fox’s weightloss is purely fascinating. In theaters October 19.
Skyfall: Daniel Craig is our weakness — and in this James Bond installment, we’ll get to see the skeleton in Q’s closet. Let’s forget Quantum of Solace ever happened. In theaters November 9.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2: We’ve been waiting for four years to see vampire Bella and the X-Men-style throwdown of Cullen clan vs. Volturi. In theaters November 16.
Silver Linings Playbook: Jennifer Lawrence finally gets to have some fun in a movie, opposite Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper, and they’re both playing mentally unstable people in a movie directed by possibly mentally unstable filmmaker David O. Russell. In theaters November 21.
After Glee, Smash, that one show with Ben Folds, and you know all of the other talent shows in our DVR, you’d think this October’s college a capella movie Pitch Perfect would just be one too many peeks into the lives of young people who just GOTTA SING! But no. We watched the trailer this morning and basically forgot about all the rest. Here’s why:
1. We like Anna Kendrick as a dry-witted outsider. It’s such a change from her over-caffeinated overachieving characters in Twilight, Up in the Air and Rocket Science.
2. This is produced by Elizabeth Banks, who can basically do no wrong in our eyes.
3. Rebel Wilson (the tattooed roommate Brynn from Bridesmaids) has about 500 hilarious lines in the trailer. But also seems kind of real.
