LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It's one of the lines getting a big laugh in "Pitch Perfect" and Rebel Wilson didn't even remember ad-libbing it. A guy tells Wilson that he feels like they should kiss. She tells him that she sometimes has a feeling she can do crystal meth, but then she thinks, "better not." Wilson says she didn't remember saying the line until she saw the movie. Then, she thought to herself, "that's a pretty good line." Wilson is a member of an a-capella group in the film. She was also in a group like that in Catholic school. They were called 12 Voices because there were 12 girls. She says they had to wear peasant blouses and "disgusting long velvet skirts." Pitch Perfect opens in more theaters today.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Pitch Perfect" star and "Bridesmaids" scene-stealer Rebel Wilson is taking center stage.

MTV tapped the Australian actress to host its annual movie awards, set for April 14 in Culver City, Calif. The network made the announcement late Thursday during the finale of its popular "Jersey Shore" series.

Wilson is an actress and writer who rose to fame with her role as Kristin Wiig's nosy roommate in "Bridesmaids." Wilson's other credits include "Bachelorette" and "What to Expect When You're Expecting."

The MTV Movie Awards have traditionally been held in June, but as the summer movie season has edged into May, the network scheduled its show earlier to give film fans a peek at the season's blockbusters. The MTV Movie Awards has often featured exclusive film previews.
