Rebel Wilson on 'Isn't It Romantic' Controversy: 'It Was Purely to Lift My Fellow Plus-Size Women Up'

“I obviously misspoke in that situation,” Rebel Wilson said at the premiere of “Isn’t It Romantic,” acknowledging her recent Twitter gaffe in which she claimed to be the first plus-size woman to star in a romantic comedy.

“I was so sincerely sorry for doing so because my intention was never to offend anyone. It was purely to lift my fellow plus-size women up, so I was sad when I had a different reaction from some people,” she said. “But at the end of the day I think this movie is so positive, it has such a sweet message, and the representation in it is really positive.”

Asked whether she thinks Twitter is more trouble than its worth, she said, “I definitely use it more as a marketing platform rather than putting really personal stuff, ’cause I think there’s been a string of burglaries and weird stalking and other things happening to celebrities. But I also love connecting with the fans so its a difficult thing as to whether you keep it or not. I feel like it will evolve.”
