All anyone wants to talk about with Rebel Wilson is the drastic weight loss she underwent this past year.
“People are so obsessed with it,” Wilson, who recently turned 40, told the Daily Telegraph’s Stellar of her slimmer physique, “but I get it.”
The “Pitch Perfect” actress revealed she understands the fixation on her changing looks — because she had a similar one on Oprah Winfrey while growing up.
“Oprah is one of my heroes,” the Aussie shared. “She’s certainly struggled with eating issues and I would always watch her episodes when she spoke about that.”
Winfrey has long been open about her ongoing battle with her weight during the 20-plus years she was a daytime talk show host.
For Wilson, losing weight wasn’t about “being a certain size or body weight” but instead about “loving” herself and finding her “inner siren” — something she celebrated by dressing up as a mermaid during her week-long 40th birthday party on Marlon Brando’s private island.
Wilson has also been outspoken about another of the reasons she embarked on a “Year of Health” in the first place: She wants to have a baby.
“It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, ‘Well, you’d have a much better chance if you were healthier,’” she shared during a Q&A with fans on Instagram Live in July.
The actress gave an update on her fertility journey while speaking to Stellar, saying “it’s still a bit unclear” if she’ll be able to have a family of her own one day.
“I feel like [it’s] not over yet. It’s kind of an emotional roller coaster. But I’ve been trying my best, so whatever will be, will be.”
