    Matt LeBlanc didn't even try to hide his complete distaste!

    The first time I saw her in a movie I thought she was ok as she was so different. But then I realised she acts the same way in every other movie. Not funny anymore.

    @CFM every time I see you pop up I think air compressors

    What does CFM stand for besides air flow

    She doesn't give a **** what others say. She can see the bigger picture in life and that doesn't involve women spending hours on end just to put themselves on a silver platter for men.

    I'm a bit offended that she keeps referring to where she grew up as the "ghetto part of Sydney". I would never think to put Cherrybrook/Castle Hill and ghetto in the same sentence. Even if it was ghetto, that is so mean to the people who do live there.

    I think she comes across as a bit of a try-hard. She got her break in the Fat Pizza TV series right? But she never acknowledges that (very rarely) or thanks them for giving her a start now that she has made it in Hollywood. She thinks she is better than them now that she's famous. I would like her more if she was more humble and grateful then being so up herself.

    I have found her to be funny in some roles she has played, but I've never seen Pitch Perfect.

    Yeah, I wasn't a fan before then, but that sealed the deal. I think her bogan act is just that. An act. No one is THAT Aussie! Or if they are, I've never met them!

    My fav "big funny gals" are MM and Dawn French. Rebel would take lessons from both of them in how to actually be funny. And how to behave on a talk show. Dawn is fabulous when she's on Graham. Rebel? Not so much.

    As for Paul Walker dying I find it hard to swallow he had like a 16yo girlfriend 😟
    I know. I found the PW thing distasteful too. I don't care how nice a guy he apparently was, he was still twice her age and then some!

    I couldn't remember who she was on with, but knew she didn't go down well with the other guests. But I would have been pi$$ed too they way she kept butting in. And the toilet humour and nunchucks. 🙄🙄🙄.

    He still has a hit show! Episodes. It's hilarious. He's playing a hyped up version of himself. I love it.

    I'm still a bit devastated by Prince. And Bowie. I didn't say anything on here, but I'm still shocked both are gone. Wouldn't call myself their biggest fans, but liked some of their music and it's a massive loss. I don't think we will ever see performers like them again 😪😪

    Couldn't agree more with the try hard. I'd been wondering if I just had tall poppy syndrome with her, but I usually like our exports and want them to do well. She just seems so fake even without all the lies about her age and real name. And thinks she's so awesome. I think that's why I don't get her. I mean good on her, who wouldn't want to make it big if you were an actor, but that doesn't mean you have to act like you're better than everyone else!

    There are times when I can find Rebel Wilson quite funny. However, I have also become quite weary of the self-depricating 'fat-girl' humour but then I also think, would Hollywood be able to accept and value a female who is large if she did not make fun of her own physicality by affecting an arrogance? I think she's probably just making the bias of Hollywood (and the world at large) work for her instead of against her.

    Most of the larger female celebrities are 'accepted' in spite of their size, iykwim?

    Oprah being a case in point.

    I like this about her too, but don't like anything else about her. She seems like the token overweight person given she can't actually act and most people don't even find her funny.

    Jenny McCarthy is actually funny and very natural. I find Rebel Wilson quite fake and trying too hard to be likeable and funny.
