Rebel Wilson has become a trending topic as more people become curious about her impressive weight loss.
Throughout the last year, the Australian star was vocal on social media about her fertility struggles and how they propelled her to venture into her “year of health.”
In a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph’s magazine, Wilson got candid about her fertility journey, as well as some mental and physical improvements she has made.
Her Fertility Journey
The 41-year-old said her wish to get pregnant is the motivation behind her lifestyle change, noting,
“It’s kind of an emotional roller coaster. But I’ve been trying my best.”
Despite a huge drop in her weight, Wilson is not putting too much pressure on herself as she says, “whatever will be, will be.”
The “Bridesmaids” cast member expressed she never avoided exploring her public persona before losing over 60 pounds in the past year because she grew up without trading on her looks.
Wilson regarded herself as the personality girl, but she became in touch with her inner siren after her health transformation.
This change was not about being a specific body size or weight but “loving yourself and loving the journey that you’re on.”
The “Pitch Perfect” cast member said she had turned to food to deal with the international pressure she received from being a movie star.
Wilson told Stellar Magazine that she received more attention from losing weight than she did from starring in any movie as people are understandably “obsessed” with her change.
Behind Her “Year Of Health”
Although the quarantine was a time for most people to indulge in R&R, Rebel began a healthy lifestyle change during that period.
In July, The Blast reported that the 41-year-old opened up about why she lost 65 pounds when a fan asked that question in an Instagram Q&A.
Wilson credited it to when she received bothersome advice from her fertility doctor, who said she would have a better chance of freezing higher quality eggs if she was healthier.
The actress sought comfort on Instagram when she first received the sad news, writing that she hopes there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Journaling Her Weight Loss
In June, The Blast dove into Wilson’s year of health, sharing a series of Instagram posts where the actress uploaded photos of her current figure on several occasions.
In August 2020, the “Isn’t It Romantic” lead showed off her underwater skills with the caption, “Don’t ever doubt my mermaid abilities [mermaid emoji].”
In September 2020, the actress showed off her figure while looking like a princess in a stunning dress.
The icing on the cake was when she shared a photo of herself looking drastically slimmer in a black bikini in May 2021. Wilson captioned the well-received post, “Palm Beach-ing 🏝 I think I wanna move to Florida now.”
