Last night at the MTV Movie Awards, Rebel Wilson joined her Pitch Perfect 2 cast mates on stage wearing tight leather pants and a sparkling black bra—and a set of massive angel wings. In other words, a look completely reminiscent of a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Her ensemble even included the word “THINK” emblazoned across her butt, which the actress said was her idea.
“The Bella girls [in Pitch Perfect] are all different shapes and sizes and nationalities,” Wilson told the press room backstage at the awards. “I think one of the good messages in the movie is that you’re all beautiful. Sometimes girls will look at Victoria’s Secret models and think they have to model themselves after that, but I really don’t think that’s the best. Even though they’re called models, they’re not the best people to model themselves after. I’d like to encourage other girls to think that way, which is why I put that on my butt.” She pointed to her head, then her butt and added, “Because it’s really about what’s up here and not what’s here.”
The bra was made for Wilson by the same designer in Dubai who creates corsets and looks for Madonna and Lady Gaga. The actress was a fan of the outfit, although she admitted it’s not so easy to walk around with wings on. “I love it,” she said. “The wings are slightly uncomfortable, especially when people knock into you. It’s good because this my cardio for the day because I had to go up and down three flights of stairs wearing these and these are about 20 pounds.” So is Wilson on her way to becoming a real Victoria’s Secret Angel? “I do actually wear their bras,” she joked. “The director Michael Bay turned me on to those.”
