Her journey, her way! Rebel Wilson has transformed herself since she cemented her place as a dynamite presence in the Hollywood movie industry.
“I took something that was seen as a disadvantage – no one thinks if you are fat you become an actress and everyone will love you – and turned it into a positive one”, Pitch Perfect star told Australia Daily life in January 2015. “Bigger girls do better in comedy. I do not know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It is very difficult to laugh at someone who is very attractive I think. ‘
In fact, Wilson even gained weight to pursue comedy. “I don’t know if it was a mega concert, but I thought,” How can I laugh more? Maybe if I was a little bit fat, ” she recalled The Telegraph in July 2016. “And then suddenly I was fat and I was doing comedy.”
However, as the actress’s career skyrocketed, she changed her perspective and revealed in May 2020 that she hoped to slim down. “Even if you have to crawl to your goals, go ahead x it’s worth it. Try to put in a little effort every day, ”she wrote via Instagram at the time. “I know some days are frustrating, you feel like you are giving up, you are annoyed by the lack of progress … but good things are coming your way.”
Wilson added, “I’ll be honest with you – with my ‘Year of Health’ mission, I’m trying to reach 75 kg.” The Australian-born woman noted that her pursuit “required a daily effort,” filled with “constant setbacks,” but that she still “worked hard.”
As for her fitness regime, her personal trainer Gunnar Peterson shared her secrets in March 2019. “She’s crushing!” he told Us weekly exclusively. “Never miss [a workout]. Even comes in on travel days and exactly when she comes back. She’s locked up! ‘
Peterson then described her routine. “A lot of power works together at dynamic intervals,” he explained. “Think sledding, Technogym’s SkillRun treadmill with sled and parachute protocols, focus mitts, moving kicks to pads, rope work, vertical rope work, sledgehammers. … Everything to make her body guess and keep her mind busy! ‘
