“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.”
