The 41-year-old Australian actress claimed in a new interview with BBC Breakfast that she received “a lot of pushback” from her own management team about changing her appearance.
“I got a lot of pushback from my own team, actually, here in Hollywood, when I said, ‘OK, I’m going to do this ‘Year of Health.’ I feel like I’m really going to physically transform and change my life,'” Wilson recalled. “And they were like, ‘Why? Why would you want to do that?’ Because I was earning millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person.”
Wilson clarified she was body positive before her weight loss but knew her eating habits weren’t healthy.
“I knew deep down inside that some of the emotional eating behaviors I was doing [were] not healthy. I did not need a tub of ice cream every night,” she admitted. “That was me numbing emotions using food, which wasn’t the healthiest thing.”
The “Pitch Perfect” star also provided an update about her fertility journey.
“I’m still trying on the fertility journey, even though it is emotional and you get hopeful and then your hopes are dashed. So I feel for any woman going through it,” Wilson said. “I was the classic example of a career woman who went out into the world, didn’t even think about kids, and then suddenly in your mid-30s is like, ‘Oh, hang on, do I want that as an option? And then if I do, what do I need to do?'”
The star has explored freezing her eggs but also understands that carrying her own biological might not happen exactly as planned.
“It would be great if I had my own children, but I don’t know whether that’s going to happen, so I’m trying not to have any expectations set on an outcome,” Wilson reflected. “Just that I’m the healthiest I can be. I’m going to try and what will happen will happen.”ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK! Called “America’s Number ONE Gossip Columnist” by The National Enquirer.
