Rebel Wilson is a forty-year-old Australian actress best known for her funny side roles in films.

Working on and off-stage as a comedian, her performances quickly won over audiences due to their self-deprecating nature. Who doesn’t love a good joke, right?

You know when characters in films are having a particularly sentimental moment in a scene and then another comes in with a very bad, but hilarious line that completely ruins the moment? Yeah? Well, that’s Rebel’s role in almost everything she does.

Her first major role was in Bridesmaids

She played Kristen Wiig’s roommate, Brynn. The reviews for the film were exceptional, some even branding it a classic chick flick that you “shouldn’t pass on”.

The Aussie actress became a talking point and with her acting career only just taking off, the world became her oyster.

Her most famous role had to be in the Pitch Perfect films. The character brought audiences so much happiness and talk around Rebel’s skills as an actor grew.

The boisterous character stole the heart of audiences with her hilarious antics and her powerful singing.

Her positive outlook and outspoken ways made people warm to her quickly. She also didn’t really care about what she looked like, hence the name “Fat Amy.”

Over the years, Wilson started taking care of her body more. There was nothing wrong with her at all, but the actress decided she wanted to be healthier and so changed up her routine to achieve her desired body type.

“Being unique and different was a really good thing. I walked into my agent’s office for the first time, they looked at me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you’. And they signed me on my second day here… I wouldn’t ever want to compete with what I call ‘the glamours’ – the really gorgeous people. I’m about the brain, the heart and what’s on the inside. I feel really lucky to be the body type I am.”

The actress stated that she has a “hormone imbalance in her body” which means she is prone to eat, no matter her mood. We all know the after-effects of binge-eating, don’t we? But Rebel said that hers was constant. She had this love-hate relationship with food.

“I love me some ice cream or dessert, and it comes at times when I’m happy or sad. So when I have an incredibly stressful day, I want to celebrate and reward myself with food. If I’ve had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort. You would probably describe it as emotional or stress-eating…eating is my one vice. I wouldn’t ever want to totally give it up.”

Because many reports have suggested that she has shredded a tonne of weight.

She lost thirty-five pounds in just a few months with the help of her celebrity friends. This sent her fans crazy, questioning just how she managed to do it. Though she claimed she started the journey in 2016, the drastic changes happened in the last few months…

Style Craze outlined her best dietary tips and the first one is “no counting calories.” “Rebel stopped counting calories and started counting the amount of dietary fiber she was consuming per day. Counting calories (a) is not accurate when it comes to caloric and nutrition value of certain foods, and (b) can prevent you from consuming foods that are good for your body just because the calories are on the higher side.”

We all love snacking between meals, don’t we? It’s a habit that no one can seem to shake, but according to Rebel, it’s the killer. Instead, swap them out for healthy snacks, such as “a handful of cashews, almonds, or Brazil nuts” or maybe “celery and apple cider vinegar.”

The real problem with this one is staying motivated. Exercise is just as important as a healthy diet but neither will work if there are too many cheat/lazy days. So let’s stick to a strict plan!

Yes, yes, I know, the tip that everyone decides to chuck in there but it really works! “To lose weight and prevent yourself from mindlessly consuming calories, you must drink water. A lot of times, when you are thirsty and do not drink water, your brain misreads the signal as hunger.”

No matter if you’re in the process of changing it, or if you’re happy with the body you already have, be confident. You are worthy of love and happiness and your body shape does not determine that.

Confidence is key when it comes to being an actor…

And as many actors can relate, there will be many points in an acting career when you will be uncomfortable.

She has been involved in the production of Cats, which will be released later this week after being directed by Tom Hooper.

Cats is known for its energised atmosphere…

And especially in Broadway, only the best dancers are cast.

And it is expected to be a family-friendly movie that is full of entertainment and comedy.

And she has spoken out about how uncomfortable shooting the scenes were.

The set was very hot

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Wilson said, “I lost 8 pounds (3.6kg) shooting my number in 4 days.” “One, because there’s a lot of physicality … but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 Fahrenheit (37.7 Celsius), so that we could never cool down.”

So why was the set so hot?

“These people are like, the best dancers in the whole world, so they can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film… So they’d heat up the set like a sauna so we would never cool down, but (it) made it pretty uncomfortable,” Wilson explained.

Wilson went on to gush about how excited she was to have the opportunity to work on Cats, saying, “You definitely felt how epic it was… From the sets and Tom Hooper directing, and then Andrew Lloyd Webber, who is a musical theater god.”

Wilson’s new lifestyle was truly put to the test, but she has come through to the other side absolutely glowing.
