‘Fat Amy be­comes an ac­tion hero-I love dit!’

Best - - BEST GIRLS’ NIGHT IN... -

Aussie ac­tress Rebel Wil­son, 38, shot to fame in Brides­maids. The larger-than-life com­edy star is now a big name in Hol­ly­wood.

How was the ‘boot camp’ ex­pe­ri­ence?

We did Bella Boot Camp a month be­fore we started film­ing, and it’s re­ally fun – like get­ting the gang back to­gether. Ev­ery­one is like, ‘Hi!’ and, ‘What a re­ally nice hand­bag you have!’

Is it in­tim­i­dat­ing when you’re given a pile of songs to learn?

It was scarier in the first movie, but we have got a lot more used to it, and are a lot quicker at pick­ing up most rou­tines. Some of them are 10-part har­monies, where ev­ery track is dif­fer­ent for each of the 10 girls. But, some­how, we man­age to put it all to­gether.

How much fun was it to film those ac­tion scenes?

Sud­denly, Fat Amy be­comes an ac­tion hero, which I rel­ished be­cause I’m a big fan of kung-fu and ac­tion movies. And I’m not the type of per­son that usu­ally gets cast in those kinds of roles! But I de­liver. So I’ve used Pitch

Per­fect 3 as an au­di­tion for fu­ture ac­tion and kung-fu di­rec­tors to see my skills. There is more from where that came from!

Did you in­jure your­self at all dur­ing the ac­tion scenes for this movie?

Ac­tu­ally, I didn’t get one in­jury dur­ing all the fight scenes, though in my fol­low-up movie, I slipped down a grassy hill and got con­cus­sion! On Pitch Per­fect 2, I fell down the make-up stairs and re­ally banged my­self

up. But, weirdly, do­ing the fight scenes on this movie I got no in­juries.

If you were sit­ting down to watch PitchPer­fect3, what mo­ment would you like to see?

Well, there is a duet, that has been cut from the film which, per­son­ally, I think is one of the best things ever shot! Ap­par­ently, ev­ery­one agrees, even though it didn’t make the fin­ished movie. But it will be on the DVD. It’s a duet with me and John Lith­gow, so look out for it!

PitchPer­fect3 is now avail­able on dig­i­tal down­load and on Blu-ray and DVD from Mon­day 23 April, cour­tesy of Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures (UK)
