If you're a fan of the Pitch Perfect movies, chances are running into Rebel Wilson would be aca-awesome! After all she is the genius behind Fat Amy.

But in a new interview with Elle Australia, the actress admits that she's not like her character or even that funny at all points of the day.

"Most people who know me know I'm not switched on all the time. I don't like to be like that in real life, because it's draining," she told the publication. "If I'm how I am as Fat Amy all f--king day…I can be sometimes, but I'd be a psycho if I was like that 24/7."

She added, "You gotta chill out and just be normal a bit, I say."

Speaking of normal, Wilson also admits that when it comes to fancy photoshoots and high-fashion, it's not necessarily her expertise. For instance, if she was given the opportunity to choose between heels and flats, it would be the latter all day long.

"I never thought I'd be the type of girl who'd be doing, like, fashion shoots," she confessed while wearing a Marina Rinaldi coat and shirt by Roaman's on the magazine's cover.

In fact, it was the one and only Tyra Banks who helped give her some valuable advice when she was and up and comer in the industry.

"I used to watch some of the reality shows about models and then, weirdly, now I try to incorporate into my fashion shoots the skills I learnt from watching those shows," she admitted in reference to programs like America's Next Top Model. "It's like thanks Tyra, cause you've given me like all the cool tips. Like how to smile with your eyes."

It's called smize, girl!

Away from all the lights and cameras, you can find Wilson wearing T-shirts with cartoon characters plastered on. In addition, you might see her hanging out with a few famous friends. Dare we say Jennifer Lawrence?

"I have a lot of celebrity friends. But they're all Hollywood friends," she explained. "You can't call them if you fall over and break your leg, but if you're having a BBQ and wanna chitchat, you hang out with them, or you go to their house." Sounds like a party to us!
