Rebel Wilson Makes Shocking Confession About Her Management Team, Accuses Hollywood Of Encouraging Her To Stay As 'Funny Fat Girl'
Rebel Wilson made a shocking statement regarding her team in an interview with BBC Breakfast after going through a massive body transformation.
The Australian actress confessed that not everyone supported her decision to become healthy, especially the people she worked with.
The 41-year-old Pitch Perfect star, who recently shed more than 70 pounds, accused her management team of encouraging her to stick with her unhealthy eating habits when she revealed her intention to lose weight.
"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,'" she claimed. "And they [her team] 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."
Even though she had always been body positive prior to her transformation, she knew her diet would not benefit her long-term health.
"I knew deep down inside that some of the emotional eating behaviors I was doing [were] not healthy," she added. "I did not need a tub of ice cream every night. That was me numbing emotions using food, which wasn't the healthiest thing."
The How To Be Single actress also shared her desire to become a mother someday, disclosing she had explored her options, including freezing her eggs.
"I'm still trying on the fertility journey, even though it is emotional, and you get hopeful, and then your hopes are dashed," Wilson said. "So I feel for any woman going through it."
She continued, "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?"
However, Wilson isn't getting her hopes up regarding her motherhood plan.
"It would be great if I had my own children, but I don't know whether that's going to happen, so I am 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."
Earlier this year, she opened up about her weight loss journey on The Morning Crew show, saying she noticed how people treat her differently.
"Sometimes being bigger, people didn't necessarily look twice at you," Wilson confessed. "Now that I'm in good shape, people offer to carry my groceries to the car and hold doors open for you," although she clarified she had "always been quite confident" and thought, "I looked good at all sizes and stuff."
