After years of hard work trying to make a name for herself in her home country of Australia, Rebel Wilson is finally seeing the rewards. Adding to her impressive resume of major movie roles and Torrid clothing line, Rebel has just snapped up the biggest and best award to be received at Cosmopolitan UK‘s Ultimate Woman of the Year Awards in London on Wednesday night.
“Thank you so much for giving me the ULTIMATE WOMAN OF THE YEAR award amongst a field of superb and inspiring females. Very honored xx,” Rebel wrote on Instagram following her big win. Coincidentally, Rebel is also the magazine’s cover star for January 2016.
When an Ode reporter asked Rebel what it feels like to win the same award which has been won by Vivienne Westwood and “the Kardashians”, the Aussie comedian took the opportunity to sarcastically reply, “Yeah, well, very deserving, the Kardashians, of all their fame and success…” before laughing and admitting that she feels “very lucky”.
The shade comes after Rebel told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O that the Kardashians “seem a bit superficial and their career isn’t really based on talent.” You can watch her take the dig in the video below.
