Rebel Wilson has thoughts on casting LGBT roles. During an interview on  BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs released on Sunday, the Australian actress was asked if she feels women can get away with edgier jokes than men.

It’s been just about two years since Rebel came out and introduced fans to her love Ramona Agruma. Innerestingly, she revealed in December 2022 that her on-screen kiss with a woman in 2022’s The Almond and the Seahorse was not only her first kiss with a woman EVER, but that the moment is what ultimately “opened” her heart to having more intimate experiences with other women!
