In the last year we have seen a host of celebrities lose many pounds, some with more success than others. Comedian and actress Rebel Wilson, star of Bridesmaids, has now joined the numbers with a recent publicised weight loss of 33 pounds however she intends to lose another 22. Rebel began to lose weight when she became a spokesperson for weight loss and nutrition company Jenny Craig in Australia.
Interestingly her weight loss is not proving popular with her film obligations. The producers of the film she was appearing in called Pitch Perfect had refused to let her lose any more weight during filming, as her contract stated she must stay the same size. This was late last year and she has now continued to lose
weight. On the Jenny Craig blog she wrote ‘I’m really feeling great now, I am actually having to donate some of my clothes that are now too big for me.’ But how will losing weight affect her future career as all other characters have been based on her plus size figure? Take her up and coming film Bachelorette for example where she is playing the role of an overweight woman that was once dubbed “pig face” back in high school. Will these roles dry up if she loses more weight? She has said herself at the moment she takes on the roles no one else wants.
Rebel Wilson is a 26 year old from Australia who has become a hit in the US. At her heaviest she weighed 234 pounds and she is now a size 16. “I was like a marshmallow blob when I started, but now I’m starting to get back into the shape I remember,” she told Yahoo. Rebel Wilson is a very funny comedian and good actress whose career should go from strength to strength. She has certainly had a lot of projects on the go! What do you think of her weight loss to date? Do you think she should lose more weight?
