The recent film performances by Australia’s up and coming Lady of LOLs, Rebel Wilson, has inspired a new league of fans since her days on the The Wedge and Thank God You’re Here. Lady Gaga is the latest to join the growing league of supporters, praising the actress’s hilarious rendition of “Edge of Glory” on the Tonight Show.
