Los Angeles - Rebel Wilson thinks Victoria's Secret models are not the ''best'' role models for young people.

The Pitch Perfect star - who donned a pair of angel wings and a pair of leather trousers with the word 'think' emblazoned on it when she arrived at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night - encouraged women to be inspired by people based on their personalities and not by their figures.

She told People magazine: "I think sometimes girls look at Victoria's Secret models and think that they have to model themselves after that, but I really don't think that's the best, even though they are called 'models,' they're not the best people to model yourself after.

"I like to encourage girls to think, which is why I put that on my butt. It's really about what's up here points to head, and not what's here points to backside."


Meanwhile, the 29-year-old actress recently admitted fashion is becoming "important" to her because she wants to become style inspiration for women with fuller figures.

She said: "I am the type of girl with zero fashion sense but I am getting into it now.

"It's becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren't any women in Hollywood my size and age."
