If I get two lines in the script, I somehow turn it into 20. I've got a bit of a bad habit of doing that, of just embellishing my little moment. ---->>>

All my family has very good mathematical abilities - like, so dorky. I was the dork then in school - on any maths exams I'd get 100%. I just knew how to do maths and most people would hate it, but for some reason it just came. ---->>>

I went to a Christian high school, so I went under my middle name. I don't think they would have accepted me in the school - 'This is Rebel'... so I have two middle names, Melanie Elizabeth, and I went under those. But Rebel's way cooler. ---->>>

I think I appear very innocent and soft, but I'm actually very dark and edgy. It's a weird dichotomy. ---->>>

When I was younger I did karate and martial arts, and I think it's really cool for girls to have those kinds of abilities. ---->>>

In comedy, it's not the glamorous, beautiful people that are great at comedy. They're either every man or every woman, they're either quite tall and lanky or shorter and fatter or have a big nose. They have something physically about them that makes them into a comic stereotype. ---->>>

At school, nobody thought I was smart and I became smart. Nobody wanted to be my friend and then I had lots of friends. ---->>>

Because of my filming commitments in America, you have to sign contracts where you can't change your physical appearance. ---->>>

I do notice that when I come in to meet casting people, they love that I'm Australian. Maybe it's our good work ethic. ---->>>

I'm trained in musical theatre and 'Pitch Perfect' is the first movie where I get to really belt out. I beat Adele for that role. ---->>>

My family keeps me pretty grounded. Like if I try anything diva, they're like, 'Oh shut up. Go and do the dishwasher.' ---->>>

The more I know about America, the better I'll be at performing American characters and American stories. ---->>>

I remember my first taste of American big movies was 'Ghost Rider.' I'm in two little scenes. But for those two little scenes they had 400 extras, upside-down stunt cars, and a fire brigade.

I was sporty in high school. I played tennis and hockey, and was basketball captain. Then I went to university and stopped doing sport and started eating ice cream.

I studied law at university and was sort of grooming myself to go into that kind of career. I filmed 'The Wedge' while studying, which was very difficult, but I'm proud I completed my degree. ---->>>

People ask if my parents are hippies, but they're actually very conservative. A girl called Rebel sang at their wedding, and that's where my name came from. ---->>>

I really like writing from real-life experiences. Audiences seem to prefer the stuff I couldn't have made up. ---->>>

Where I come from, out in the suburbs, I didn't know anyone who was a professional actor. And girls that looked like me? No girls like that were on TV. ---->>>

When you're a kid, you don't want to be teased. ---->>>

I contracted malaria in rural Mozambique. I was a youth ambassador for Australia. For a year after high school, you give positive speeches about Australia and as part of it I traveled to lots of different countries. ---->>>

As a kid, I never thought I'd be an actress. Never, ever, ever, no way. I was really shy - bordering on social disorder shy - and I was really academic. ---->>>

I try to be healthy. I train three days a week with a trainer. But I do like to eat, clearly. And I do eat dessert every day. If I cut that out, yes, I would lose weight. ---->>>

I was planning to go into law or politics. I was well known for my public speaking. I went to an all-girl boarding school with uniforms. It was very posh for someone like me who came from a world where my parents showed beagles and sold dog products out of a yellow caravan. ---->>>

In Australia, I wrote lots of little plays and put them on, and then I worked on a few different TV shows, like the Australian equivalent of 'SNL.' I would write and perform all of my characters. ---->>>

Some people think success is overnight. I suppose, considering I came from Australia, it has been pretty quick. But I have a background in stand-up and improv, so I've really had to prove myself. ---->>>

Up until the age of 12, I went to dog shows every weekend. Mum showed beagles. It's a really competitive and eclectic world filled with characters who wear interesting outfits - similar to 'Toddlers & Tiaras,' but with dogs. ---->>>

When I came to America I thought, 'Wouldn't it be awesome to get into one movie?' And then I get cast in 'Bridesmaids' as my first job here and it's such a huge movie. ---->>>

All comedians have to use their physicality, so I use my size. ---->>>

Get ready for 'Les Mis 2'... I'm playing 'Fat Cosette.' ---->>>

I like to take things one step at a time, because the entertainment industry is very uncertain. ---->>>

I love talking in an American accent. Even though it hurts my face after a few hours. ---->>>

I never thought I'd be the type of girl who'd be doing, like, fashion shoots. ---->>>

I was in an a cappella group in high school. ---->>>

I wasn't an extroverted kid. I was very academic and very introverted. ---->>>

I'd love to do a court-room drama. I loved 'Ally McBeal.' That was one of the main reasons I went to law school. ---->>>

I'll often use my real stuff in my writing because it comes across as more authentic. ---->>>

I'm always ripping clothing. It's so embarrassing. ---->>>

I'm constantly moving and constantly travelling, and so it's really hard to maintain a relationship in that kind of environment. ---->>>

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. ---->>>

No one in my family is in show business, unless you count dog shows as show business. ---->>>

Sometimes my mum is very disapproving of my comedy. ---->>>

'A League of Their Own' had some special meaning for me, I guess - it's about women joining together and being empowered, but also about sisters sticking together even when there's drama and struggles. I'm really close to my two sisters and my brother, so I liked that about it. ---->>>

At first I moved from Sydney to Melbourne, because most of the comedy was shot in Melbourne, and then from Melbourne to Los Angeles - and you have to sacrifice stuff. ---->>>

I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense, but I am getting into it now. 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. ---->>>

I caught malaria, and the medicines caused a hallucination. I dreamt I won an Oscar for acting. I know it sounds stupid, but it was so real, and I just knew then it would happen. ---->>>

I come from the rougher side of Sydney. I don't know whether you can compare them to the projects , but in Australia, it definitely is the rougher side. ---->>>

I do notice on Twitter that a lot of girls write to me, and they either say, 'I want to be your best friend,' or they say, 'I have a total girl crush on you.' I'm like, 'Awww.' ---->>>

I don't think I could ever go skinny. I just don't think, physiologically, that is going to happen. I do eat healthily for a week, and then I go, 'Nah, they have these beautiful ice-cream sandwiches.' I don't think my emotional eating is ever going to change. ---->>>

I had a great career in Australia, so it was a hard decision to move to America. But in 2010, I was asked to audition for the part Melissa McCarthy ended up playing in 'Bridesmaids.' ---->>>

I have a lot of celebrity friends. But they're all Hollywood friends. 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. ---->>>

I love rapping. I do. My styling's similar to Missy Elliott - I think she's so dope. In a weird way, that's how I first learned the American accent: doing American rap songs. ---->>>

I remember just sitting down one day and going, 'I should have friends.' And then I developed a sense of humour. By the end of high school, I would say I was the most popular girl. ---->>>

I think 'Bridesmaids' has changed things socially and culturally. Before, it was really difficult for women to do scatological humour without seeming gross. ---->>>

I think some of my darkness comes from my dad. There is definitely convict history on that side of the family, a lot of dodginess. But with the darkness can also come entrepreneurialism, genius traits. ---->>>

I think sometimes girls look at Victoria's Secret models and think that they have to model themselves after that, but I really don't think that's the best; even though they are called 'models,' they're not the best people to model yourself after. ---->>>

I think that women out there should just be happy with how they look, and they shouldn't really try to conform to any stereotype. Just be happy and, hopefully, healthy. ---->>>

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. It's like, thanks Tyra, 'cause you've given me, like, all the cool tips. Like how to smile with your eyes. ---->>>

I wrote my own play, 'The Westie Monologues,' about where I'm from in Australia, and it was very successful. From that, I started getting offers from television. ---->>>

I'd love to do Broadway or the West End. I'm sure doing eight shows a week is gruelling, but I did a lot of stage shows in Sydney and I love performing live. ---->>>

I'm more of the girl who's always in the friend zone, and I try to help if my other friend wants to get with someone. I can be a bit cheeky and say stuff that embarrasses my friends, but I'm normally the girl who guys like to be friends with, so I become friendly with the guy and then go, 'Oh, this is my other friend.' ---->>>

In 'A Few Best Men,' I play a lesbian character. I played the lesbian sister of the bride who ends up kissing a dude at the end, but she was, like, a full-on lesbian in that. And I beat out famous Australian lesbians for the role. ---->>>

In 'Night At The Museum 3,' with Ben Stiller, I was only given a couple of lines. If you are in guys' comedies, it's not like you are ever going to just get handed some jokes and a brilliant role. ---->>>

People think you're really confident because you're an actress or whatever, but I'm, like, the worst. Although the good thing about being recognizable is that people approach me, which is good. ---->>>

What they do in America in all those sitcoms is hire glamorous girls and they're never that funny... that's because they've never had to develop a personality because they're hot. ---->>>

You see other actresses who are like, 'Oh, I can't really eat much lunch today because I've got that scene in my underwear'... I'm a little bit chill. But you know, what you do need is stamina. ---->>>
