Rebel Wilson Explains Why Her Management Team Didn’t Want Her To Lose Weight

As fans know, 2020 was the "Year of Health" for actress Rebel Wilson. The Australian blonde bombshell kept fans updated with her weight-loss journey on social media as her millions of followers watched her embark on a healthier lifestyle. Now, it's the end of 2021, and Rebel is thriving, to say the least.

However, in a new interview, the actress revealed that not everyone was on board with her losing weight last year.

Rebel Wilson is everyone's BFF.

The hilarious blonde hottie has been a household name since we all fell in love with her in the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids.

She then went on to star in the Pitch Perfect franchise, which was a personal favorite of mine.

In 2020, Rebel began making headlines for her "Year of Health" initiative.

She told fans she was working on her health in an effort to live a longer, happier life and increase her chances of fertility.

Now, Rebel has reached her goal weight and is thriving.

However, not everyone was supportive of Rebel's decision to embark on this health journey. Speaking with BBC Breakfast the 41-year-old explained that her management team was against the idea at first.

“I got a lot of pushback from my own team, actually, here in Hollywood, when I said, ‘OK, I’m going to do this Year of Health. I feel like I’m really going to physically transform and change my life,'” the actress recalled.

"And they were like, ‘Why? Why would you want to do that?’ Because I was earning millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person."

"I knew deep down inside that some of the emotional eating behaviours I was doing was not healthy. I did not need a tub of ice cream every night. That was me numbing emotions using food, which wasn’t the healthiest thing."

Rebel then gave fans an update on her fertility journey, explaining that she was still trying despite the emotional toll.

"I was the classic example of a career woman who went out into the world, didn’t even think about kids, and then suddenly in your mid-30s is like, 'Oh, hang on, do I want that as an option? And then if I do, what do I need to do?'"

"It would be great if I had my own children, but I don’t know whether that’s going to happen, so I’m trying not to have any expectations set on an outcome," she explained

"Just that I’m the healthiest I can be. I’m going to try and what will happen will happen."

We're so happy that Rebel is living her best life and has taken her health into her own hands.
