What’s a girl to do when she’s not only the host of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but also the winner of the golden popcorn for Breakthrough Performance?
For Rebel Wilson, it meant pushing her luck and asking for a kiss from shirtless Zac Efron. “The only thing that would make this better would be if Zac Efron took off his shirt right now and came and kissed me.”
Efron, on stage to present the award for Best Shirtless Performance, walked over, explaining he couldn’t hear what she’d asked for. “An Australian kiss,” she said. “It’s like a French kiss, but down under.” While he seemed ready to go along with the gag, Wilson quickly ended it, saying she was embarrassed.
She opened her acceptance speech mocking her career, saying, “Some people say they don’t do it for the awards, but I do. I only do acting for these awards and for the cash money. Is there a cash prize with this?” But she put the jokes aside and admitted, “I’m very genuinely touched.”
