Rebel Wilson may get done up to the nines before stepping foot on a red carpet, but the star of Pitch Perfect 2 admitted to Elle U.K. that she's pretty in the dark about fashion.

"I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense, but I am getting into it now," she told the magazine. "It's becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren't any women in Hollywood my size and age."

Wilson also shared that she's always working at staying fit in order to keep up with the demands of filming, and not for vanity purposes.

"You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy."

The 29-year-old Aussie native also dished to the publication about the struggles with being a woman in the entertainment industry.

"I have done three big movies with men—these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system. Usually, you don't have any cool jokes and you're there to support the male actor—those male roles are 90 percent written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20 percent there," she explained.

"It's unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximize them. If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it."
