Rebel Wilson says people treat her differently now that she’s hit her goal weight as part of her “Year of Health.” The 40-year-old Australian actress devoted 2020 to focusing on her fitness and wellness, losing about 60 pounds in the process. Since then, she’s noticed that people treat her differently.
“I think what’s been really interesting is how other people treat you,” she shared during an interview this week with the Australian radio show The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin.

She added, “I’m like, is this what other people experienced all the time?”
Wilson’s “Year of Health” also involved working with a fitness trainer and spending time at a detox and wellness center in Austria. She chronicled her wellness journey extensively on social media, sharing photos of workouts, hikes and even her scale as she embraced her new “Fit Amy” lifestyle (a reference to her popular Pitch Perfect character, Fat Amy).
