Rebel Wilson Shares Photo of When She Was at Her 'Unhealthiest'

Rebel Wilson has shared a photo of herself when she was at her “most unhealthiest.”

The 41-year-old actress and comedian was on a health journey last year and ended up losing 65 pounds as a result. Rebel revealed the reason why she decided to lose so much weight recently as well.

Rebel wrote, “Okay so I know that I normally post flattering photos of myself…but found this old photo in my emails and was like: whoa! I remember this was when I was at my most unhealthiest – being overweight and indulging way too much with junk food. Using food to numb my emotions. My father had passed away of a heart attack and it was such a sad time. I didn’t think highly of myself and wasn’t valuing myself how I should have.”

She continued about the photo, which featured tennis star Novak Djokovic, “It’s interesting that I’m still smiling and still trying to be active – this was taken at a charity tennis tournament event (ps @djokernole is such a nice guy) – despite being in so much pain.”

Rebel added, “I look back now at that girl and am so proud of what she’s become and achieved. And just wanted to send out some encouragement to everyone out there struggling with weight or body issues or emotional eating. I feel you. I know what it’s like. But it’s never too late to start improving yourself and trying to be the best version of YOU possible. It’s not a race and it’s not a competition – it’s about respecting yourself and doing what’s best for YOU. So if you’re out there and reading this today, I just wanted to say: keep smiling and keep trying to be active! Love you guys 😘”
