The Wilson rebel opens her journey to weight loss, honestly discussing what inspired her to make a lifestyle change in what she called her “health year”.
During an interview with one of the articles in Stellar magazine in the Daily Telegraph, Wilson discovered some of the mental and physical improvements she experienced as a result of her health change. The 41-year-old actress also expressed that there is one specific personal reason that served as a first kick in her health journey: getting pregnant.
“I’ve been on a fertility journey for the last two years and I hope that at some point I will have a family of my own,” she explained. “But it’s still a bit unclear if that will be the case. I feel it’s not over yet. It’s kind of an emotional roller coaster. But I tried my best, so whatever it is, it will be.”
For the past year, Wilson has been discussing her fertility struggle on social media. In December 2020, the actor spoke openly during an Instagram Live session about her decision to freeze her eggs.
“As all good career women out there need to know, if it’s something that interests you, it’s a pretty good time to do it,” Wilson said at the time. “Reaching age 40 is even leaving it a little too late. It’s best to do it a little earlier if you can.”
In May of this year, Wilson told more about her fertility struggles, and shed light on a topic that many people can address.
“I received bad news today and I had no one to share it with … but I guess I have to tell someone,” she wrote on Instagram. “For all the women out there who are struggling with fertility, I feel you. The universe works in mysterious ways and sometimes it all makes no sense … but I hope there will be light that shines through all the dark clouds.”
During the rest of her discussions with Stellar magazine, Pitch Perfect star did not shy away from exploring her public persona before she lost more than 60kg last year, explaining, “I grew up not really trading in my looks. I was the personality girl. “
“But after going through all my health change last year, I was in touch with the ‘inner siren,'” she continued. “It has nothing to do with a particular size or body weight or anything. It’s just loving yourself and loving the journey you are on. And for me, the women I think are the most beautiful are the ones who go into their own power. ”
For the past decade, Wilson has been at the top of her game in the industry. Following the success of “Bridesmaids”, Wilson became a Hollywood consumer, starred in the movies “Perfect Pitch”, took on the rom-com genre in “How to Be Single” and “Is It Not Romantic”, and worked alongside Anne Hatt ‘Aww in the “commotion,” to what extent.
“When I was at the peak of the heavy, I also had the most international attention on me,” she said. “Because I am not a natural actor, my natural personality is very internalized; The way I dealt with that pressure was to eat. I would reward myself with a block of chocolate. “
Wilson pondered headlines about her in the past year that have sweepingly discussed her weight loss.
“In 2019, I got four films, two that I produced (me too) and one, ‘JoJo Rabbit’ (in which she starred), which won the Oscar for Best Picture,” she said. “And yet I get more press the following year when I do nothing but lose weight.”
The actor understands that people are “obsessed” with weight loss and says she understands.
“Opera is one of my heroes,” she said. “She definitely struggled with eating problems and I would always watch her episodes when she talked about it.”
