Her journey, her manner! Rebel Wilson has reworked herself since cementing her place as a dynamite presence within the Hollywood movie trade.
“I took something that was seen as a disadvantage — no one thinks if you’re fat that you’re going to be an actress and everyone’s going to love you — and turned it into a positive,” the Pitch Perfect star advised Australia’s Daily Life in January 2015. “Bigger girls do better in comedy. I don’t know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It’s very hard to laugh at someone who’s very attractive, I think.”
In reality, Wilson even gained weight to pursue comedy. “I don’t know if it was megaconscious, but I thought, ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe if I was a bit fatter,’” she recalled to The Telegraph in July 2016. “And then suddenly I was fatter and doing comedy.”
However, because the actress’ profession skyrocketed, she modified her perspective, revealing in May 2020 that she hoped to slim down. “Even if you have to crawl towards your goals, keep going x it will be worth it. Try and give a little bit of effort each day,” she wrote by way of Instagram on the time. “I know some days are frustrating as hell, you feel like giving up, you get annoyed at the lack of progress … but good things are coming your way.”
Wilson added: “I’ll be honest with you guys — with my ‘Year of Health’ mission, I’m trying to get to 75kg’s.” The Australia native famous that her aspiration was “requiring a daily effort,” stuffed with “constant setbacks,” however she was nonetheless “working hard.”
As for her health routine, her private coach Gunnar Peterson shared her secrets and techniques in March 2019. “She is crushing!” he advised Us Weekly solely. “Never misses [a workout]. Comes in even on travel days and right when she gets back. She is locked in!”
Peterson then detailed her routine. “Lots of strength work with dynamic intervals spliced throughout,” he defined. “Think sled work, Technogym’s SkillRun treadmill with sled and parachute protocols, focus mitts, moving kicks to pads, rope work, vertical rope work, sledgehammers. … Any and everything to keep her body guessing and her mind engaged!”
