Zack Sharf Digital News Director Rebel Wilson writes in her new memoir “Rebel Rising” that she was able to successfully negotiate a $10 million salary to reprise the role of Fat Amy in “Pitch Perfect 3″ (via People).

The payday proved how much of a career Wilson built for herself over six years as she earned just $3,500 for her small breakthrough in 2011’s “Bridesmaids.” The small “Bridesmaids” sum “didn’t matter to me,” Wilson writes.

She took the role and didn’t think twice about the salary because the fee was enough to get her into the SAG-AFTRA union, which meant more opportunities in Hollywood.

Wilson says she booked six movies after “Bridesmaids” opened in theaters, “one of which was ‘Pitch Perfect.’ Boy, did that movie pay dividends!” In an interview with The New York Times about her memoir, Wilson was asked about her decision to write candidly about some of the salaries she earned during her acting career thus far.
