Rebel Wilson reveals the sad reality of losing weight

Rebel Wilson has revealed the sad truth about losing weight.

While chatting to 2Day FM’s new breakfast radio show Hughesy, Ed and Erin, Rebel explained how differently she has been treated since losing weight.

Erin Molan asked the actress: “Hey I’d love to know … we have all seen you physically change from the outside, how has it changed you on the inside? How has it changed you as a person?”

Rebel explained “It’s interesting Erin, I like to think I looked good at all sizes and I’ve always been confident.

“It’s not like I wasn’t confident and now I’m confident.

“What’s been really interesting to me is how other people treat you.

“Sometimes being bigger, people didn’t look twice at you and now that I’m in good shape people offer to carry my groceries to the car and open doors for you. Is this what other people have experienced all the time? That to me has been really interesting.”

She went on to say: “I also find it interesting that people pay so much attention to a weight loss transformation when there is so much going on in the world.”

Rebel Wilson revealed she got stuck into a gruelling working routine and underwent a strict diet in 2020 to get in shape.

She stunned fans with her health, but admitted not everyone was supportive during an Instagram Live.

“Industry-wise, there were a lot of people who wanted me to stay as Fat Amy,” Wilson explained, in reference to her character in the movie franchise Pitch Perfect.

“And at the end of the day, it is my life and my body and Hollywood had in a way typecast me but I didn’t want to stay like that.

“It makes me sad sometimes that I didn’t value myself enough before all of this to get healthy.”
