Rebel Wilson brought her movie persona into her hosting gig at the MTV Movie Awards – making a myriad of jokes that had her weight at the center, dropping F-bombs and paying homage to her Australian culture.

Opening the night, Wilson took the stage in a hot pink tracksuit that was covered in koalas. “I wanted to do a very Australiana opening. So I said, ‘Well we better get some kangaroos’ and I think that kangaroo cost about $5000 for the opening because I wanted it to look very Australian,” she told Fairfax Media after the show in Los Angeles.

Wilson, who received two golden popcorn statues on the night for her hilarious turn in Pitch Perfect alongside Anna Kendrick, was completely in her comedic wheelhouse with her overly sexual gags. At one point she suggested that heartthrob Zac Efron kiss her ‘down under.” And in a pre-recorded sketch, she also dubbed herself the “Head whore of Les Miserables.” What did seem slightly out of character, however, was the Iron Man suit she sported during the show.

At the Wilson-hosted MTV Music Awards, popcorn trophies were given to Will Ferrell, Emma Watson and Jamie Fox among others. The Avengers and Silver Linings Playbooks were the night’s big movie winners, as each took home three awards, including the Movie of the Year award for The Avengers.
