Rebel Wilson wonders if only gay actors should play LGBT roles!

Rebel Wilson has thoughts on possibly casting LGBT roles.

During an interview on BBC Radio 4′s Desert Island Discs released on Sunday, the Australian actress was asked if she thought women could get away with more daring jokes than men. She prepared:

“I’ve certainly told a lot of bold jokes, and I’ve sometimes said them in very public places like the BAFTAs. Yeah, I don’t think there’s a different standard, it’s more this question of if you’re something, so now you’re allowed to joke about it.

The 44-year-old continued:

“So say, if you’re overweight, you can tell jokes. But if you’re not (you can’t), that’s kind of what’s happening now. So it’s not really a question of gender.

But when it comes to LGBT roles in film and television, the Perfect pitch The star believes casting should NOT be limited to actors who identify similarly with a given character:

“I think it’s difficult. That’s like saying, “Well, only straight actors can play straight roles, and gay actors can play gay roles,” which I think is completely absurd. I think you should be able to play any role you want.

Interesting! There’s definitely something to be said for reserving gay roles for openly gay actors who historically don’t get as many opportunities!
