Rebel Wilson Paid Extra to Stay Overweight for Movie Role

Before she started to slim down this year, the 'Pitch Perfect' actress says she had to stay fat because she was paid extra by producers for an onscreen role.

AceShowbiz - Rebel Wilson continued overeating as she was paid to maintain her larger frame for a film role.

The Australian comedian and actress has recently begun slimming down and has dubbed 2020 her "year of health" in order to shed the pounds.

In an interview with British newspaper The Sun, Rebel reveals that one reason she continued to live unhealthily was that she was paid extra to stay overweight for one role as it required a larger actress.

"I turned 40 as well in March and so I thought, this is gonna be it," she says. "This is going to be the year for me to just concentrate on the health benefits."

"It's not like I want to lose weight and get to around a certain number. It's more than that, it's about dealing mentally with why I was overeating and I had a job where I was paid a lot of money to be bigger, at times, which kind of can mess with your head a bit."

Having established herself as a comedy star in films like "Bridesmaids" and "Pitch Perfect", Rebel is now free to get fit - and wants to detail her health kick in a book.

"I'm just trying to work on the mental side and the physical job and doing a lot of personal training and, on the nutrition side like it's, it's cool... I should probably write a book at some point about it because people seem to be interested," the funnywoman adds. "There's no real simple answer to it. I've been trying a lot of different things and to be healthy."
