She became a big star in Hollywood thanks to a brief but memorable role in Bridesmaids. But Australian actress Rebel Wilson is starting to shed the plus size look that helped to make her famous. The 26-year-old, who played Kristen Wiig's roommate in the hit wedding comedy, looked decidedly slimmer as she made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.
The blonde was on the programme to promote her new film Bachelorette, which also stars Kirsten Dunst and opted for a fitted pink Tadashi Shoji dress for the interview.She has been steadily losing weight after signing on as the Australia face of Jenny Craig last year.
She tipped the scales at 234lbs but has now dropped 33lbs. She wants to lose another 22lbs to reach her target.
Rebel had to put her dieting on hold late last year while filming the upcoming musical Pitch Perfect. The contract stated that she had to stay the same weight throughout filming.
She appears to be back on track now and updated fans on her progress with a recent blog post on Jenny Craig's Australian site.
'I’m really feeling great now,' she wrote. 'I am actually having to donate some of my clothes that are now too big for me.
'Also, the other day, I bought a couple of pairs of ‘skinny’ jeans (you know the ones with the tight legs!) and am really loving them. It’s a newer silhouette, one I haven’t seen in ages.'
Bit it seems she hasn't lost her sweet tooth. Last night she presented Kimmel a bar off chocolate as a gift but admitted she'd already opened it to steal a nibble.
