Now a producer and director, Wilson fought her way to the top in an industry dominated by men and ruled by beauty ideals. In an exclusive 100 Women interview with the BBC’s Nomia Iqbal, she reflects on what it means to be the “funny, fat girl”, why she went on a “year of health” during the pandemic, and decided to speak openly about her fertility struggles.
