Rebel Wilson’s 9 Queerest Films
Here's to Queerer Movies to Come
Rebel Wilson posted a photo on Instagram on Thursday introducing the world to her girlfriend Ramona Agruma. In the photo, the happy couple is snuggled up and smiling.
"I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince... but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess," Wilson wrote, adding "#loveislove."
In honor of her coming out, here are the most queer-adjacent films Wilson has made.[instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/CelyiLZLHa2/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loading expand=1 site_id=25879312 embed_desktop_width=540 embed_desktop_height=853 embed_mobile_width=375 embed_mobile_height=706]
We really don't think there's anything queerer than a cat-themed musical turned into a film. While Cats was a bomb with critics and viewers, Wilson as Jennyanydots is still charming and a definite highlight of the film.
After being in a 20-year coma, Wilson's character wakes up to find the world has moved on -- and there's several more Fast and Furious films. As she's coming to terms with her new reality, she finds friends in the queer kids at her old school.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie
We had to include her cameo appearance in the Absolutely Fabulous movie, which is full of queer characters and actors. In the film, Wilson she plays a flight attendant in a super memorable confrontation.
Lesbihonest, even though Wilson doesn't play the film's queer character, the movie still had it's rainbow element. It is about college a capella groups after all.
As in most things, if Wilson is in a scene, she's going to steal it. She played an unnamed girl describing Nicolas Cage's character's flaming skull head in only a short, but delightfully and awkwardly funny scene.
Pitch Perfect 2
The entire movie revolves around an action by Wilson's character, which is pretty amazing in our books. There's also a leather-geared performance and plenty of sexual references between some of the girls. The film even features the a capella group Pentatonix, which has several queer members, in a fantastic musical number.
Anne Hathaway. The chemistry. Do we need to say more?
Pitch Perfect 3
Rebel Wilson singing, dancing, and fighting off some sketchy bad guys hired by her character's father? It definitely deserves to be on this list.
As Frau Rahm, Wilson plays a Hitler Youth instructor for a camp. She memorably says, "Kids it's time to burn some books!" There is a subtle queer storyline, which involves two male characters, Captain Klenzendorf (Oscar winner Sam Rockwell) and his right-hand man Finkel (Game of Thrones' Alfie Allen).
