Rebel Wilson jokes that returning awards mean actors can stop making podcasts

Rebel Wilson joked that one of the benefits of award shows returning from the easing of coronavirus restrictions is that actors can stop creating health podcasts to fill the void.

the Australian actor is taking over as presenter at the Bafta Awards, held at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday.

Wilson, 42, will bring her humor to the event, which she said will celebrate popular British series including James Bond and Harry Potter, and underrated cats.

Speaking ahead of Bafta’s debut on The One Show, Wilson said: “Like everyone who has the ability to recruit I’m in the audience so there’s no pressure.

“But it’s great that award shows are back like ‘Wow, actors don’t need to do wellness podcasts anymore.

“They can wear their beautiful outfits, they can come on the red carpet, it will really look like glam. And I think people are waiting for that, they’re up for a good night’s sleep and it’s all about celebratory movies.

“I mean, the British movies, their legacy, are amazing. We’re celebrating the 75th anniversary of James Bond, the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the three year anniversary of the Cats… so it’s going to be really good. ”

The 2019 big-screen adaptation of Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s classic musical Cats, which stars Wilson and Dame Judi Dench, was a commercial and critical failure.

Wilson admits that she feels nervous about presenting such events, saying: “It’s hard as a host because you want it to be funny but in these weird times, what would happens if i get canceled or something?

She added jokingly: “I really like that because then I won’t have to work for two years. I really like that. “

The actress also revealed that she is in a relationship with a member of the royal family, to whom she makes certain jokes to get their consent, but does not give their names.

Pitch Perfect Wilson star, who famously played Fat Amy in the series, follows Graham Norton, Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry as hosts.

She made her Hollywood breakthrough in the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids, which saw her and British comedian Matt Lucas play characters who live together as housemates.

After the movie, the pair became roommates in real life, and Wilson admitted that they had once received complaints for singing the show’s tunes in the hot tub too loudly.

“We loved it because Matt and I had a lot in common and loved the stage and all musicals is definitely one of them,” she added.

The Baftas Awards will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on 13 March. Rebel Wilson jokes that returning awards mean actors can stop making podcasts
