MTV gig for Rebel

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

Wil­son’s star power just keeps grow­ing. The Aussie ac­tress will host next year’s MTV Movie Awards, fol­low­ing last year’s host Rus­sell Brand. It’s also a feather in her cap, as the first fe­male host of the show in six years. MTV an­nounced the news in the US dur­ing the se­ries fi­nale of Jersey Shore on Fri­day, when view­ers got a taste of what a Wil­son-star­ring Movie Awards could look like by way of a short trailer co-star­ring her Brides­maids cast­mate and friend Matt Lu­cas. The MTV cer­e­mony will take place on April 14 in Cul­ver City, Cal­i­for­nia and be tele­vised in Aus­tralia. With roles in hit films in­clud­ing Brides­maids, Bach­e­lorette and most re­cently Pitch Per­fect, the 26-year-old ac­tress has be­come very pop­u­lar with Amer­i­can au­di­ences. Wil­son is not new on the MTV awards cir­cuit. She mem­o­rably ap­peared at this year’s Video Mu­sic Awards, clad in a bikini T-shirt and snack­ing on potato chips, to present the Best Fe­male Video nom­i­nees along­side Brit band The Wanted.

April 14, MTV.
