Rebel Wilson is pretty diplomatic about all the gossip about his body.
Wilson – whose first breakout role played a character named “Fat Amy” in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, and who was later branded as a goofy sidekick – lost weight. And there has been a barrage of media coverage about it.
“In 2019 I released, like, four movies, two that I produced and one, ‘Jojo Rabbit’, which was nominated for an Oscar for best picture,” she told the Daily Telegraph. Australian., per person. “Still, I get more pressure the next year when I don’t do anything other than lose weight.”
“People are so obsessed with this,” Wilson added. ” But I understand. Oprah is one of my heroes. She definitely has eating issues and I always watched her episodes when she was talking about it.
Some celebrities, including Oprah, have drawn (and capitalized on, and negatively perpetuated) attention surrounding their weight loss. But many others have spoken out about how harmful it is for their bodies to be the subject of public comment and speculation.
Shonda Rimes was incredibly open about how it was to receive praise for losing weight. In 2017, the writer and producer said she felt like people finally saw me as a person after losing 150 pounds.
“How did they see me before? How invisible was I to them then? She wrote in an email. “What value did they place on my presence at a party, a lunch, a discussion? “
Lena Dunham, who recently received criticism for gaining the weight she had previously lost, made it clear in an Instagram post earlier this month that she was in poor health and struggling with addiction. when she was at her thinnest.
And Jonah Hill said last week that people talking about his body were “unnecessary.”
“I know you mean well, but I kindly ask you not to comment on my body,” he wrote on Instagram. “Good or bad, I want to politely let you know that this is not helpful and does not feel good.” Great respect. “
And while Wilson made it clear to the Telegraph that she finds the entire fixation on his body a little weird, she also seems to take it in stride.
“It’s not about having a certain height or a certain body weight or whatever,” she said. “It’s just about loving yourself and loving the journey you’re on. And for me, the women I find the most beautiful are the ones who take their own power. “
