Rebel Wilson has been working on her weight loss journey over the years but she’s not afraid to go back to the days before shedding the pounds. The “Isn’t It Romantic” star shared several throwbacks from 2012 a few days early. Taking to her Instagram on Monday, the newly turned 40-year-old actress showed off her pre-weight loss body while sporting a sexy two-piece mermaid costume from a shoot with New York Times 8 years ago. Putting on a busty display in a revealing seashell-inspired bikini top, Rebel Wilson channeled her inner sea goddess before lunging her body into the pool of water.
“Wish I still had this outfit!” Rebel Wilson captioned the steamy shot, referencing the mermaid costume which consisted of a skintight pink skirt that hugged her curves. She also showcased a video showing her memorizing body floating in the water while famed photographer Tierney Gearon excitedly screamed mermaid commands at the superstar. ” I clearly LOVE modeling in a pool when it’s FREEZING,” Rebel Wilson joked before revealing, “what you can’t see from the video is that dry ice was added to the pool for the photos which made it extra freezing!”
She ended her trip down memory lane by stating, “the photos turned out brilliantly.” Rebel Wilson has been on a health journey for several years after deciding to focus on exercise and eating right. She’s shocked fans with her dramatic weight loss and recently reminisced about her time at a holistic retreat in Austria while acknowledging the importance of health. Flaunting her new lean frame, Rebel Wilson put her hourglass body on a silver platter with the gorgeous Austrian Alps in the background. “When the borders re-open and we can travel to our favourite places – I can’t wait to go back to @vivamayraltaussee in Austria and continue my health journey!” she captioned the throwback snap while stating she still has a long way to go.
Rebel Wilson spent two weeks at the facility detoxing her body and spirit where she dropped over 14 pounds back in 2019. Posting the weight loss reveal, she wrote, “I’ve spent the last two weeks at VivaMayr Altaussee in Austria and have had the most amazing time! It’s all being filmed for a health doc but I’m down 14.5 pounds (6.6kg’s) and helped my digestive and immune system so much. Thank you to everyone at VivaMayr for your care x.” Rebel Wilson has been working on her fitness and is a beast in the gym. She’s since lost even more weight thanks to her diet and intense workouts which she shares with her Instagram family.
