You may not recognize the name, but once you see her face you know exactly who she is! Rebel Wilson won me over in Bridesmaids and it was announced today that she will be hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards!. Watching countless interviews with her on Ellen, David Letterman, and others makes me think she really is the hot star of 2013!

Her career has exploded over the past year and shows no signs of slowing down. The Australian actress was recently spotted leaving a meeting in Venice, California with an arm full of scripts!!

In addition to developing her own sitcom at ABC and several new films in post-production, Rebel is also being "courted" to star in the sequel to 2012's Pitch Perfect. Skylar Astin, Wilson's Pitch Perfect co-star, told,

"I do have a meeting with a Universal representative next week. And I know that Rebel Wilson had hers last weekend. It's definitely a talking point."

Rebel was named Next Big Thing in Details magazine's Hollywood Mavericks issue. I have to agree 100%!!! She just makes me smile. I love her! Hope 2013 is amazing for her! To keep you laughing this weekend if it gets a little to stressful with family members, The Daily Beast has a bunch of Rebel's funny moments in movies and interviews. I was literally on their site for a half hour laughing at how funny this amazing young woman is!
