Rebel Wilson has had a fash-over for her cover of Hunger Magazine issue 5, as she rocks a winged smokey eye and her hair is styled in thick curls. She is one of four cover stars, Debbie Harry, Bryan Ferry and Chiwetel Ejiofor, on the cover of issue 5 of the magazine by Rankin. Our friends over at Hunger have given us a heads up about Rebel's interview where she talks about how fat is funny.

The Bridesmaids star hits back at those who says she relies on jokes about her weight as she said: ‘As long as I look like this, I’m going to make fat jokes.' You might remember that earlier this year some critics claimed she over-used the 'fat women can be funny' jokes at the MTV Movie Awards.

She adds: 'You have to use what you’re given to make yourself funny: if you’re super short, super tall, super skinny, have a super big nose – you’ve got to use that.’ The Australian actress adds: ‘I like making fun of myself, because it gives me license to make fun of other people; otherwise, you just come off way too mean. We have a saying in Australia: if you “pay out” on yourself, you can “pay out” on everyone else. It gives you room to move.' Well Rebel we think you are hil-ar-ious!

Rebel also talked about the changing face of comedy in Hollywood as she said 'Before, it was all glamorous types like Kate Hudson who served as, like, the female equivalent of a ‘straight man’. Now it’s turning, and it’s really good.” Rebel has helped put an end to Hollywood’s baffling enthusiasm for one-dimensional comedy roles for women and instead, goes toe-to-toe with all those major male Hollywood jokers.' She adds: ‘I like spreading the message that you can be beautiful and confident whatever shape or size you are.’
