Rebel Wilson has opened up about her body transformation and struggle with "emotional eating," and shared how she realized people are obsessed with weight loss.

The 41-year-old actress, who lost more than 65 pounds in 2020, noted that despite releasing four movies — "Jojo Rabbit," "Isn't It Romantic," "The Hustle" and "Cats" — in 2019, it was only last year when she started getting everyone's attention. 

The actress revealed she's received "more press... when I do nothing except lose weight" in an interview with Daily Telegraph Sunday.

"People are so obsessed with it. But I get it," she added.

She went on to speak about Oprah Winfrey, who also struggled with similar issues.

"Oprah is one of my heroes," Wilson told the outlet. "She's certainly struggled with eating issues and I would always watch her episodes when she spoke about that."

The "Pitch Perfect" star also shared why her body transformation was a huge success but made it clear that she is not completely cured.

"It worked because it was the whole lifestyle approach and dealing with emotional eating. I'm not totally cured. I don't think you can be," she explained. "But I've learnt to manage it – and it's not by reaching for a bowl of ice cream."

Moreover, she noted how proud she feels after losing weight and successfully maintaining it. However, she clarified that weight loss is not about shrinking to a certain size or reaching a particular weight. Instead, it's about "loving yourself and loving the journey" that you're on. 

"And to me, the women I think are most beautiful are those who step into their own power," she added.

The actress also recalled the time when she was at her "heaviest" and had "the most international attention" for being an unnatural performer. According to Wilson, her "personality is very introverted" due to which she used to deal with the "pressure" with emotional eating.

"I would reward myself with a block of chocolate," she recalled.

In July 2021, the actress revealed she had to lose weight to increase her chance of getting pregnant.

On the work front, the actress will be next seen in "The Almond and the Seahorse" and "Senior Year." Both movies are under post-production.
