Rebel Wilson gets offered 'two types of acting roles'

Rebel Wilson only gets offered "two types" of acting jobs.

The 29-year-old performer, who starred in the 2011 romantic comedy film 'Bridesmaids', has revealed she's only offered roles that fit into two distinct categories: female-driven comedies and "the boys' club".

The Australian actress shared: "How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job which is basically the boys' club. I have done three big movies with men - these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system.

"You aren't being paid much and you start at a disadvantage with the script. Usually, you don't have any cool jokes and you're there to support the male actor."

However, Rebel - who appeared in 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' last year - says she's determined to make a success of such roles.

The actress told the new issue of ELLE magazine: "Those male roles are 90 percent written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20 percent there. It's unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximise them.

"If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it."
