Rebel Wilson Spent 5 Weeks Training for That Pants-Splitting Scene in 'Pitch Perfect 2'

By
Get ready pitches! The Barden Bellas are back!
There’s A LOT to look forward to when Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters May 15, including this moment of Fat Amy, aka Rebel Wilson, falling from grace (literally) and showing an entire audience her personal parts.
While we all know that Fat Amy was NOT a fan of exercising...
Rebel Wilson made sure she was 100% prepared and trained to film the side 'splitting' scene.
"I did my own aerial stunts in Pitch Perfect 2," the actress told ET, revealing just how much work she really put in. "I trained for five weeks with my coach, Alicia, who's been in a lot of Cirque du Soleil shows."
Yes… you read that right. Rebel trained for five whole weeks to make sure she was ready to hang from the silks.
"I mean, the death drop, spread eagle moves, like there's a lot of moves in a 40 second aerial stunt routine," she said. "But I trained really hard. I was very dedicated."
While she admits that she didn't think they would actually be able to get her to do it, in the end, she pulled it off.
"I wanted to do it for The Bellas and for the flashy opening."
Check out the video above to see why Rebel had to overcome her biggest fear to film that ultra-hilarious scene!
