Your Girl Rebel Wilson Has Shared Her Secret To Doing An American Accent

Rebel Wilson is currently doing the rounds to promote Pitch Perfect 3, where she once again returns  to belt out more acapella-style pop songs as Fat Amy. She recently stopped by The Tonight Show, where she told Jimmy Fallon that the new film required her to do a lot more stunt work than previous instalments, including filming a scene in which she was chomped on by a pair of trained German Shepherds. Adding insult to injury, the scene was not even used in the finished film, but it may or may not show up as a blooper in the closing credits.

Wilson also told Fallon that her on-screen dad John Lithgow needed to learn an Australian accent in three days for the film – a pretty mean feat, but the seasoned actor was up for the challenge. She also explained how she does an American accent, and the secret appears to be in the face. We’ll let her explain the finer points:

Pitch Perfect 3, starring Rebel Wilson, Anna KendrickBrittany SnowAnna Camp and Hailee Steinfeld, is out in Australia on January 1. In case you missed it, you can check out the trailer below:
