BANG! NEWS – Rebel Wilson hates that men get very “intimidated” by her because she is a comedienne.
The Pitch Perfect star insisted she is the “nicest, most down-to-earth person” and finds it frustrating that men won’t date her because they feel “uncomfortable” with her as she is a comedian.
She said, “I feel like I’m the nicest, most down-to-earth person. But you can see it in their eyes, they get very intimidated. And I don’t know why. Do they think I’m gonna make a joke about them at the BAFTAs or something? I don’t know. I think the psychology behind it is that comedy is power. If you’ve got the ability to make people laugh, you have an inherent sense of power with that. And sometimes men feel uncomfortable with women having that. But of course, women have always been funny and talented. Maybe that’s scary.”
And the 40-year-old actress said funny men are “never interested” in her, something which she finds really bizarre.
Speaking to the independent.co.uk, she added, “I’ve come across a weird thing romantically. I’ve often been interested in funny men, but funny men are never interested, romantically, in funny women. Never.”
