(UPI) -- Rebel Wilson holds a law degree and once served as a Youth Ambassador for Australia. But doesn't look like every other Hollywood actress attracting major film and television deals, which means that she constantly has to answer questions about her weight.

“I don’t really care what I look like that much, and I think women out there should just be happy with the way they look," the 27-year-old Australian told Extra last week. "They shouldn’t really try to conform to any kind of stereotype. Just be happy and hopefully healthy.”

You see other actresses who are like "Oh, I can't really eat much lunch today because I've got that scene in my underwear"... I'm a little bit chill. But you know, what you do need is stamina. I don't ever want to be too unhealthy because writing in a show, starring and producing, you need a lot of energy.

Wilson also thinks her "distinctive" look has helped her career.

"One of the reasons my agents signed me is because I'm not like any other girl here," the "Super Fun Night" star and creator said in this week's issue of InTouch. "I think most girls who are encouraged to come to LA and become actresses are usually the prettiest girls in their hometowns of Iowa or wherever. So not looking like anyone else has made things easier for me, because I'm distinctive."

Wilson fought off rumors earlier this month that she had endorsement offers from weight-loss companies.

"I haven't received any offers in the US to lose weight..and even if I did, right now I'm way too focused on doing Super Fun Night," the actress tweeted in response.

"I never wanna be too unhealthy though, so even though I like desserts (clearly), I still try to exercise e.g walk to shop to get ice-cream," she added.
