Move over Richard Simmons because Sweatin’ to the Oldies has come competition. Rebel Wilson and a group of her friends have created a new workout routine called, “Catzercise” and it may be the next big thing. The Aussie-star released two videos of Catzercise on her Instagram, clad in furry pink ears and paws.
The dance number was the culmination of a thirty-minute Cats-themed dance rehearsal her friends threw for her surprise birthday party. Very fitting considering Wilson is starring in the film-version that will release in December.
Wilson began her birthday by making her own cake at the Milk Bar. Naturally, she posted photos of her creation. What followed was a surprise party that ended in Beverly Hills with the Catzercise dance routine. Wilson apparently had a very good time as she kept tweeting about it for the next few days.
Since her move stateside from Australia Rebel Wilson’s career has been on the rise. First appearing in Bridesmaids Wilson hit national status as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect.
2019, however, is apparently the year of Rebel as the Aussie-actress is appearing in three major films. The first two, “Isn’t It Romantic” and “The Hustle” are coming out so close to each other moviegoers will see the preview of one while waiting to see the other.

“Isn’t It Romantic” is a rom-com set in the imaginary world of a rom-com. Wilson plays the lead Natalie who wakes up in her own rom-com after getting knocked in the head. The movie co-stars Liam Hemsworth as a hunky client and Adam DeVine as Natalie’s best friend. The film is a delightful skewering of regular rom-com tropes.

“Isn’t It Romantic” released on Valentine’s Day. So far it has done well at the box office. Rebel’s next feature is a remake of a classic. “The Hustle” is the female-led remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Wilson stars in the Steve Martin role playing opposite Anne Hathaway.
As for Cats, Rebel Wilson will be playing Jennyanydots. The film is slated to release in December. The film also stars Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and Ian McKellen.
