Romantic comedies never get out of fashion. The confirmation of this fact comes in the first place from the audience that simply swallows such things on a daily bases.
Looks like we’re all seeking for romance – at least on the big screens.
We already know the scenario…
SHE is clumsy and insecure, and HE is masculine with a dazzling smile. It seems like we enjoy the feeling of having butterflies in our stomach.
But, some romantic comedies do make an exception from these rules.
Though it was meant to be a nonromantic comedy – the movie Isn’t it Romantic has already bought the hearts of the audience.
SHE is Rebel Wilson, and HE is Liam Hemsworth.

Rebel Wilson – a non-rebellious star
After Muriel’s Wedding and fantastic Toni Collette, the audience was eagerly awaiting the new Australian star of that same caliber.
And then she came.
Rebel Wilson, an un-rebellious star who ended up on a big screen totally unexpected. Her first career choice was in maths, but life took her the other way. It was almost a destiny. After graduating in 2009 with Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws degrees, Rebel Wilson was a Rotary International Youth Ambassador for Australia.
During that time she was based in South Africa, where she contracted malaria. According to her own words, she had malaria-induced hallucinations, where she saw herself as an Oscar winner. That thing convinced her to pursue her acting career.
She began her acting career as Toula an obese Greek-Australian girl in SBS comedy series Pizza. During the years, she has worked as an actress, writer, and producer.
She never had complexes because of her look or weight. It could even be said that in some situations it helped her. She also managed to break into Hollywood, where she took part in Bridesmaids (2011).
Being different and unique sometimes can be a good thing – Rebel Wilson considers.
