Rebel Wilson is on the cover of April's Elle Australia, looking smokin' in graphic prints a bold red lip. (Truly, Rebel, this is your lipstick shade—never let it go.) In released excerpts from the interview, she discusses Tyra Banks, nailing it in one take and the importance of allowing herself to not be funny every now and then.

"Most people who know me know I'm not switched on all the time," she tells Elle. "I don't like to be like that in real life, because it's draining. If I'm how I am as Fat Amy all fucking day… I can be sometimes, but I'd be a psycho if I was like that 24/7. You gotta chill out and just be normal for a bit, I say."

She's also mastered the art of smizing:

"I never thought I'd be the type of girl who'd be doing, like, fashion shoots. I used to watch some of the reality shows about models and then, weirdly, now I try to incorporate into my fashion shoots the skills I learnt from watching those shows. It's like thanks Tyra, cause you've given me like all the cool tips. Like how to smile with your eyes."

And when it comes to filming, she's one (maybe two) and done:

"I hate people who do a lot of takes. I like to nail it and then go home. I like to crush it in, like, two takes."

And crush it she does.
