Rebel Wilson Reveals The Shocking Low Pay She Received For ‘Bridesmaids’

Picture this: Rebel Wilson, the queen of comedy, spills the beans on her big Hollywood breakthrough, and spoiler alert: it wasn’t all glitz and glamour! Nope, it was more like a comedy of errors, or in this case, a tragedy of bank accounts.

So, imagine Rebel, the unstoppable force of hilarity, landing her first gig in the land of stars and stripes. The movie? The iconic Bridesmaids. But hold onto your hats, because the paycheck wasn’t exactly what you’d expect for a rising star. Nope, Rebel got a grand total of $3,500. That’s right, not even enough to buy a decent used car, let alone fund a glamorous Hollywood lifestyle.

But wait, it gets better (or worse, depending on your perspective). Turns out, that measly $3,500? Yeah, Rebel had to fork over a chunk of it to the union just to join. So, basically, she ended up in the red. The premiere? Oh, she had to cough up for that too, including the dress. Talk about adding insult to injury!

And here’s the kicker: while the rest of us might have drowned our sorrows in tubs of ice cream, Rebel wasn’t about to let a little thing like financial woes get her down. Nope, she tightened her belt (literally and figuratively), surviving on a diet of ramen noodles and dreams of stardom. Living on a budget of $60 a week in L.A. isn’t exactly what you’d call the Hollywood dream, but hey, a girl’s gotta start somewhere.

But fear not, because this tale of financial woe has a silver lining. Bridesmaids might not have lined Rebel’s pockets, but it opened doors faster than a dodgy locksmith. Six movies later, including the smash hit Pitch Perfect, and Rebel was laughing all the way to the bank. So, next time you’re feeling down on your luck, just remember: even Hollywood’s funniest stars had to start somewhere, and sometimes that somewhere is broke and eating instant noodles for dinner.
