Rebel Wilson: 'Cosmo Awards were a blast'

Australian funny woman Rebel Wilson has gushed about her "top night" after being crowned Cosmopolitan UK's Ultimate Woman of the Year.

The actress has made a splash in Hollywood thanks to roles such as Fat Amy in 2012's Pitch Perfect, with her star quickly soaring over the last few years. During the Cosmopolitan awards on Wednesday evening (02Dec15), Rebel's hard work was recognised when she went home with the coveted prize.

Taking to her social media accounts, the 35-year-old couldn't hide her joy. "#topnight" she captioned a collage of Cosmo photos on her Instagram account, while she told her Twitter followers: "Thank you so much to @CosmopolitanUK for awarding me ULTIMATE WOMAN OF THE YEAR tonight X what fun!"

The ceremony took place at the swanky One Mayfair in London, and also saw Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher lauded with the Ultimate Icon award, British pop stars Little Mix named Ultimate Girl Group prize and Jess Glynne feted as the Ultimate Solo Artist. The prizes were chosen by the editors of the glossy publication.

During her acceptance speech, Rebel thanked the magazine for publishing articles full of sex tips because she "went to a Christian all girl's high school and I didn't know a lot."

However, the Aussie star also doled out her own advice, telling the audience, "My biggest tip is just to be confident in the skin you're in. None of us choose what we have, we're born with it. It's all about what's up here (in your head) and what's down here (in your heart).

"My biggest advice is to find out what you're passionate about and work out a way to make money from that. Life is short, have fun and do what you want to do."
