Every size is beautiful – never let anyone tell you differently.

Rebel Wilson, a beautiful, headstrong, go-getter and confident woman who gives a voice to all the normal body types in Hollywood. Wilson is insanely confident in her body and she has never tried to hide who she is.

She is someone who doesn’t conform to what society deems “appropriate.”

In 2015, Rebel Wilson launched an edgy new clothing line in partnership with Torrid, a plus-size, high-end clothing brand. Bringing style and fashion to the next level, Rebel expressed the frustration of all women who struggle to find clothing that fits their bodies. In an interview with People magazine, Wilson said, “I’m currently like a size 18, sometimes a 16 depending on how good I’ve been, so I’m kind of just a bit too big for most regular clothing.”

Even though she appears to be so confident in her body in public, she still struggles with her own self-esteem. She told Cosmopolitan that “Even though, yes, now I am in movies or whatever, I am still that [dorky] girl. People think you’re really confident because you’re an actress or whatever, but I’m like the worst.”

When she was re-casted for Pitch Perfect 2, she hired a personal trainer. She told Elle UK that “I’m not doing it to look great or whatever but to have the energy to do all that [producing and acting] work. People wouldn’t think it looking at me, but I can exercise!” Wilson has to stay physically fit in this type of fast pace, long-hour job. She also told Elle UK that “I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”

Wilson is the perfect example of a healthy woman, even though her body type doesn’t necessarily reflect our current societal “norms”. She defies the stigma that bigger sized women are unhealthy. She even said in an interview with Marie Claire that she considers her size as “being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

See ladies? It doesn’t matter how much you weigh. It’s just a number. If you have the personality and drive to do something, go out and do it. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It all starts with learning to love yourself.

So, here are 15 of our favorite Rebel Wilson …

It’s been 70 years for the Hollywood staple.

In 1949 in the city of Summit, New Jersey, a legend was born. Originally named Mary Louise Streep (and eventually going by Meryl), she’s gone on to star in numerous movie hits and become a household name. Her birthday was just a few weeks ago — Meryl Streep turned 70 years old.

Beginning with voice lessons at age 12, Streep went on through high school and college with the intent of being on stage. At first she leaned more toward opera, but near the end of her collegiate tenure at Vassar College she took more of an interest in acting. After graduating, Streep enrolled in the Yale School of Drama.

After all that schooling, Streep debuted on Broadway when she was 26 in a play called Trelawny of the ‘Wells.’ Two years later she found herself in film in the movie Julia (1977). But it wasn’t until one year after that that Streep began to become recognized, earning an Oscar nomination for her role in the film The Deer Hunter (1978).

With her new-found success, Streep went on to star in many signature films, including Sophie’s Choice (1985; for which she won an Academy Award), The Bridges of Madison County (1995), The Devil Wears Prada (2006) and Mamma Mia! (2008).

Most recently, Streep has been in movies such as The Iron Lady (2011), The Post (2018) and she reprised her role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018). Currently, Streep has joined the cast of the HBO series Big Little Lies, which is in its second season.

Throughout her acting career, Streep has built up a tremendous list of starring roles, awards and nominations, including a record 23 Academy Award nominations. Along with those she was also given a Golden Globe (specifically the Cecil B. DeMille) for lifetime achievement.

Aside from her acting career, Streep has been married to sculptor Don Gummer for nearly 41 years. She also has four children, each of which has gone on to make a name for themselves in the entertainment industry.

Over the years Streep has accomplished quite a lot and has had one of the greatest acting careers ever. With those achievements also comes speeches, interviews and a bunch of other public appearances, so Streep has had plenty of quotable moments. Here are some of them.
