Rebel Wilson Disses Kardashians, Refused to Present at VMAs with Kendall & Kylie: 'What They Stand for Is Totally Against What I Stand For'
"They seem a bit superficial and their careers aren't really based on talent," she told an Australian radio show
They might be one of Hollywood’s most popular families, but there’s one celebrity who’s certainly not in the Kardashian-Jenner fan club: Rebel Wilson.
“I got asked to present with Kendall and Kylie at the latest VMAs but I said, ‘No, I’d rather do it by myself,’ ” she told KIIS FM.
The Pitch Perfect star explained that she feels as though the sisters promote a “superficial” image, which goes against the self-acceptance message Wilson is trying to spread.
“What they stand for is totally against what I stand for. They seem a bit superficial and their careers aren’t really based on talent,” she said.
Wilson also took a dig at Kim Kardashian, pointing out the difference between how she achieved her fame compared to the reality TV star.
“I know they’re super popular, but I’m all about personality and working hard to get to where I am,” she said. “I mean how Kim Kardashian got famous from the sex tape and I just went to acting school and worked really hard.” she said.
Wilson isn’t the first celebrity to take a jab at the famous sisters. Amy Schumer joked about the family in her opening monologue while hosting Saturday Night Live last month, saying they were not good role models to young girls.
“We have to be a role model for these little girls because who do they have? All they have, literally, is the Kardashians,” she joked. “She doesn’t have a Malala poster in her room – trust me. And is that a great message for little girls? A whole family of women that take the faces they were born with as a light suggestion? Is that great? No.”
Schumer later said she has “nothing but love” for the Kardashians, but that she likes the idea “of sending women the message to be happy in their own skin.”
