JustJared.com – The 28-year-old Australian actress was flying to Los Angeles after working on re-shoots for her upcoming film Night at the Museum 3, which also stars the late Robin Williams.
Rebel recently chatted about being approached by Robin on the set of the movie, which hits theaters in December.
“He watched me in a scene with Ben Stiller and called me over to his trailer afterwards and he just said, ‘I think you’re such a great improviser and you’re so funny,’” Rebel shared to Australian radio station Kiis FM.
She added, “I was so shocked that the Robin Williams was speaking to me and the fact that he was watching me for the last four hours and wanted to tell me all this stuff about comedy for about two hours. It was just, I couldn’t believe I got to have that time with him and how cool.”
News.com.au – SACHA Baron Cohen really wants to see Rebel Wilson naked.
The two comedians are currently filming a movie together called Grimsby, about a top spy who teams up with his football hooligan brother for a new assignment.
Speaking to Kyle and Jackie O on Kiis FM this morning, Wilson revealed that working with the man behind Bruno and Borat has been an interesting experience to say the least.
“Sacha is so outrageous,” said Wilson.
“Every single day he’s like, ‘Rebel, can you just go naked in this scene?’ And I’m like, ‘No!’
“Sacha and I have the same agent in America and I’m like, ‘Sacha, I’m going to call our agent Sharon and tell her how much you are harassing me.’
“Every day he’s like, ‘Just go naked, it will be funny. Remember in Borat when I did that naked scene? It was hilarious.’
“On the last day I thought I’d obviously won the argument and he got a body double to do the naked scene.
“Then in the last scene … he was like, ‘Rebel can you just stick your finger up my butt?’ And I went, ‘What do you mean Sacha? That’s not in the script.’
“And he’s like, ‘Look, I’ll just pull down my pants, you just stick your finger up my butt, it’ll be a really funny bit.’”
Rebel Wilson politely turned down the request, but she did offer Cohen a compromise.
“You don’t wanna be a diva so I … said I’ll slap you once on the butt and that’s it,” said Wilson.
Seems like a fair deal.
Airherald.com – Kung Fu Panda fans have plenty more to rejoice about, thanks to Dreamworks – the announcement of Kung Fu Panda 3 on December 23, 2015 would be gleefully accepted by everyone across the globe. Sources from the team say, and this is a ‘plot spoiler’ – Po would now have more than just a challenge to face in the movie. From conquering a supernatural force to saving his near and dear ones, Po has a lot on his plate this time.
Po has to deal with the ‘deadliest villain’ in Kung Fu Panda 3, which plays an important role in the movie. No confirmed reports so far as to who will play the role of the deadliest villain. However, if rumours are to be believed, Bryan Cranston is the man for the role!
Rebel Wilson too would be the playing an important role in Kung Fu Panda 3 – Po’s ‘love interest,’ says a source, while the demi-goddess of Hollywood, Angelina Jolie would play the role of the Tigress as she did before.
Sources from ‘The Rotoscopers’ confirm leaked images of Po in Kung Fu Panda 3 are already doing the ‘viral dance’ across the world wide web – cast included. The well-known social media site, Tumblr too has users posting images and snippets of the ‘private party’ organised by Dreamworks.
Bryan Cranston’s role in the movie would also be the voice for Po’s father while Rebel Wilson would be voicing a character – unseen in the previous versions of Kung Fu Panda. While most fans waiting for Kung Fu Panda 3 are hoping for the best, especially of Wilson to be Po’s love interest or maybe his long lost sibling (sister), the team behind Dreamworks isn’t revealing anything too soon.
Kung Fu Panda 3 is on everyone’s minds, so we shall wait and watch, assuming nothing but keeping the excitement on!
Thanks to JJ, I have added some new candids of Rebel filming her new film ‘Grimsby’ in South Africa. From the photos, looks like it could be pretty hilarious. So check them out in the gallery.

dailylife.com.au – Bill Murray, we loves ya… but maybe it’s Kristen Wiig’s turn to aim a proton gun at the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man?
In exciting news, Paul Feig — director of Bridesmaids and last year’s Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy buddy-cop flick, The Heat — is currently “in talks” to get the gang back together for an all-female Ghostbusters movie, according to Variety.
A new film in the franchise has long been in the works, but a script by The Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg was shelved after star Harold Ramis passed away in February, and Ivan Reitman — the director of 1984’s original Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel — exited the project, leaving Feig as the job’s new frontrunner and with Sony’s blessing to reboot the series with an all-female focus.
Predictably, the news hasn’t gone down well with some ageing dudes.
“Signing Feig would be great news for Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and maybe Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne and Rebel Wilson, but what about the rest of us? The ones who feel a level of ownership of the classic 1984 guy comedy… I feel slimed,” wrote Deadline’s Mike Fleming in a piece titled ‘Do We Want An Estrogen-Powered Ghostbusters?’ “What’s next, a Goodfellas redo with female mobsters pulling off the Lufthansa Heist? Animal House at a sorority?”, he continued, apparently seriously.
Thankfully, no one else seems to be on Fleming’s vibe. “You left out the very important ‘cootie’ angle…” and “Are you desperate for views? Or are you just a complete nincompoop?” went the comments under his article, which is both hilarious and heartening. Good job, internet.

Stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Hailee Steinfeld sat down for an interview where they kept fairly mum about the plot of the sequel.
“We are actually doing all of our own stunts in the movie,” Rebel joked. “There are a few I can’t get into because they will spoil it, but [to Anna] that bit when you’re dangling from the helicopter, and [to Hailee] that bit with the shark.”
The girls’ co-stars Elizabeth Banks said, “Because the people loved the first film so much, I definitely feel a lot of responsibility to the fans, to my fellow actors, and I mean, shouldering it every day. But it’s going great. [The Bellas] have gotten too big for their britches, possibly, literally. And they’ve sort of forgotten about the music a little bit.”
