Rebel Wilson literally squatted with a giant wombat this weekend. The 40-year-old actress who has dropped a staggering 40 pounds was at Sydney’s Zoo in Australia – seemingly, the “Pitch Perfect” star was in the mood to turn her animal visit into an on-the-spot workout. Rebel, who recently revealed she wishes to reach her goal weight of 125 pounds by the end of 2020 is certainly making headway – unless, of course, all that squatting builds up muscle mass.
Scroll for the video already called “The best thing I’ve ever seen.”
Rebel’s video is below. It came as Rebel partnered up with the zoo’s resident – who didn’t seem to mind in the slightest – for some impromptu squatting outdoors. Rebel was near an enclosure, seen using both arms to hold the enormous wombat as she busted out some squats. The actress was dressed for the occasion, seen rocking a pair of skintight Nike leggings, plus a black sweater-style top. Sneakers, of course, were donned.
Rebel delivered approximately 12 reps with the calm wombat, although she did appear to struggle slightly with its weight about halfway in. Reactions after the video.
A caption from the “Cats” star had read: “Wombat squats! Thanks to the team @thesydneyzoo for organizing this fun workout and education sesh about some amazing rescue animals. ?.”
The video has now surpassed 500,000 views, with Rebel’s 8 million followers appearing to find it the best thing ever. “Omg the best!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️,” one fan wrote. “????? This is the best thing I’ve ever Ever seen,” another added.
Scroll for Rebel’s slimmed-down selfies, plus her goals that she’s admitted may be “hard.” Rebel, being psychic, also “predicted” COVID-19.
Rebel has been making headlines with her energetic plans declared at the beginning of the year.
“Okay so for me 2020 is going to be called ‘The Year of Health,'” she wrote, adding:
“So I put on the athleisure and went out for a walk, deliberately hydrating on the couch right now and trying to avoid the sugar and junk food, which is going to be hard after the holidays I’ve just had but I’m going to do it! Who’s with me in making some positive changes this year?” More after the jump.
Well, if she can predict weight loss and achieve it, maybe there’s something there after all. Wilson recently made headlines for her decision to fly back to Australia from L.A. as she “predicted” the coronavirus pandemic. The blonde stated “I’m a little bit psychic at time,” adding that “I just sensed the world was going to go crazy and thought it was probably good to get out of America.”
Rebel recently wowed her fans with power boxing, also making headlines for completely separate reasons as she backs 38-year-old singer Britney Spears in the resurging #FreeBritney movement.
