Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson has revealed that she lost 8 pounds in just 4 days.
The 39-year-old actress spoke with Entertainment Tonight and says her weight loss is due to shooting the upcoming flick, Cats.
She explained, “I love eight pounds, shooting my number, in four days. One, because there’s a lot of physicality… but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 Fahrenheit, so that we could never cool down.”
Cats is a musical film, and dancing is a big part throughout. Wilson says that she had to keep up with the “best dancers in the whole world” and the heating level was a necessity because the dancers “can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film.

So they’d heat up the set like a sauna so we could never cool down, but made it pretty uncomfortable,”
Rebel has maintained her stance of being a role model for body image and positivity, and recently launched her own clothing line. She feels since becoming part of the Hollywood-machine, “I find that I impart a lot of my knowledge, especially to plus-size girls.”
Launching her own clothing line was a decision made based on the difficult experience in finding clothes she could wear, saying, “I remember I didn’t even go to a friend’s wedding in my 20s because I didn’t know where to buy a dress in my size.”
