Rebel Wilson Shares Why The Thought of Fertility Struggles Drove Weight Loss

Asia's Tech News Daily

  • Rebel Wilson, 41, just opened up about her fertility concerns.

  • The actress shared how weight loss was a driver of her “Year of Health”

  • But, Rebel says she's feeling great and embracing her newfound confidence.

Rebel Wilson's “Year of Health” continues—and she's feeling better than ever. The actress and Pooch Perfect host, 41, just shared new details about her weight loss journey on Sunrise, an Australian morning show.

Rebel told hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr that, since she started switching up her lifestyle, “I lost about 35 kilos [77 lbs].” And, her life has “changed dramatically” in the past year.

Even her physician noticed: “I went to the doctor's and got my yearly check-up last week, and he's like, ‘Oh my God, all your labs and your blood work is the best it's ever been and you know, it's kind of remarkable,’” Rebel said.

Rebel was also honest about how losing weight has impacted her fertility journey. “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 said. That “offended” her “a bit,” she explained, because she already thought she was at a “pretty healthy” weight.

“That’s kind of what started it, that if I lost some excess weight that it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and having the eggs be a better quality,” she continued. “It wasn’t even really myself, it was more thinking of a future mini-me, really.”

Rebel added that she feels like people have been “obsessed” with her weight loss. “In 2019, I had, like, four movies come out, two which I [also] produced and one, Jojo Rabbit [in which I starred], which got nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture,” she said. But she wasn't making headlines until 2020, “when I do nothing except lose weight.”

“People are so obsessed with [weight loss]. But I get it,” she said. Rebel admitted she was also eager to hear about her favorite talk show host's fitness journey, who “certainly struggled with eating issues.” “I would always watch her episodes when she spoke about that,” Rebel continued.

Still, Rebel's “Year of Health” has given her a major confidence boost. “I grew up not really trading on my looks. I was the personality girl,” she said. “But after going through my whole health transformation last year, I’ve been in touch with this ‘inner siren.’”

“It’s not about being a certain size or body weight or anything,” Rebel said. “It’s just about loving yourself and loving the journey that you’re on. And to me, the women I think are most beautiful are those who step into their own power.”
