Having lost over 77 pounds since embarking on her ‘Year of Health’ at the beginning of 2020, the ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress also spills that her journey began with tackling emotional issues.
AceShowbiz –Rebel Wilson would only be willing to bulk up for a role if she was guaranteed an Oscar nod for her trouble. The Australian star has lost over 77 pounds (35 kilograms) since embarking on her “Year of Health” at the beginning of 2020, and now she looks like a new woman.
Happy and healthy, Rebel was asked if she’d ever consider putting the weight back on for a part, during an appearance on “The Kyle and Jackie O Show“, and said, “I probably would if there was an Oscar chance, because I know now I would lose it [weight]. I probably would, but I don’t know if I would go dangerously unhealthy.”
Rebel went on to reveal her weight loss started with tackling emotional issues, explaining, “The trick is with me, I am an emotional eater, so I just started dealing with that.”
The “Bridesmaids” star reached her goal weight of 165 pounds (75 kilograms) a year ago (November 2020), with “a month to spare.”
“I needed a tangible measurement to have as a goal – and that was 75 kilograms,” she wrote on Instagram, revealing she overhauled her unhealthy eating habits while staying at an Austrian wellness retreat.
Speaking about her transformation in a previous interview with Daily Telegraph’s Stellar magazine, the 41-year-old said, “After going through my whole health transformation last year, I’ve been in touch with this ‘inner siren.’ It’s not about being a certain size or body weight or anything. It’s just about loving yourself and loving the journey that you’re on.”
As she described herself as “the personality girl,” the “Pitch Perfect” star elaborated, “And to me, the women I think are most beautiful are those who step into their own power.”
