Rebel Wilson has announced that after years of "paying a lot of money to be taller" she is now losing weight.
The actress, who became famous in the Pitch Perfect films as Fat Amy, told The Sun that the bosses paid her to stay taller in the past, but that "this can mess around with your head a bit".
After Wilson turned 40 in March of this year, it was time to focus on her own well-being.

"It's not like I want to lose weight and reach a certain number," she said.
"It's more than that. It's about mentally dealing with why I ate too much and had a job where I was paid a lot of money to get bigger. Sometimes that can mess around with your head."

“I put on the sport and went for a walk, I deliberately moistened myself on the couch and tried to avoid the sugar and junk food that would be difficult after the holidays I just had, but I will ! "she told her fans.
