Rebel Wilson's dating struggle

Rebel Wilson finds dating in the public eye "a lot more difficult".

The 'How To Be Single' actress - who split from comic Mickey Gooch last year after four months of dating - thinks guys find it difficult to separate her from her on-screen personas, when she is actually very different.

Asked about dating when famous, she said: "I think it's a lot more difficult. People think you are how you are on screen and in this new film I'm pretty much an alcoholic party animal.

"Me in real life is total opposite to that. I don't really drink and I like going to the movies and nice restaurants, rather than clubs."

And the Australian star finds the dating "rules" in the US difficult to navigate.

She said: "Culturally, things are a bit different in America.

"With American girls, it's all about who should pay and it's all about rules you should follow. I don't even know all the rules."

But Rebel, 35, won't be turning to online dating to find a boyfriend.

She told Look magazine: "I personally don't like it. I think there's an abundance of people who are lying.

"One of my favourite TV shows is 'Catfish' and it absolutely fascinates me.

"These people are going online and looking for love and then still having major dramas."
