MOVIENEWSGUIDE.COM – Rebel Wilson seems to be having the best time of her life following the success of “Pitch Perfect 2” in 2015. While the 35-year-old Australian comedian is known for her titular role in the franchise as Fat Amy, the actress has notably shed some pounds while filming her upcoming movie, “How to Be Single” next to Dakota Johnson. Read on for more details.

“Pitch Perfect 3” star Rebel Wilson has a lot of things on her hands in 2015. After the groundbreaking success of “Pitch Perfect 2” early this year, the Australian comedian has landed several roles in different movies for the rest of the year. Wilson is currently filming for her upcoming movie titled, “How To Be Single” and stars next to “Fifty Shades Darker” actress Dakota Johnson and her boyfriend, Mickey Gooch.

While Wilson has previously admitted that her weight has helped her “do better in comedy,” the “Pitch Perfect” actress also revealed that she has always struggled with body issues while filming, Woman’s Day reported.

Wilson’s body issues, however, did not get in the way of her embracing her curves. The actress also shared that she has a thing for dressing up.

“I’ve had to wear lots of dresses today… You’ve got to make it fun,” she said.

Wilson may be forever known as the girl who played Fat Amy in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, but the star has noticeably dropped four dress sizes. MailOnline reported that the actress was spotted holding her trousers up on the set of “How to Be Single,” which is currently filming in New York.

Wilson did not appear the least bit concerned over her slight wardrobe malfunction and smiled for the cameras while juggling with her loose trousers.

Aside from “How to Be Single,” Wilson is also set to star as the voice actress in the upcoming animated movie, “Kung Fu Panda 3.”

PEOPLE.COM – Rebel Wilson is sharing her thoughts on the Trainwreck shooting that left three dead, including the shooter, and nine wounded in Lafayette, Louisiana, on Thursday.

“I don’t like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia’s example re gun laws,” Wilson, 35, Tweeted on Friday.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star didn’t stop there.

“I don’t remember a mass shooting in Australia since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there’s a shooting,” the actress Tweeted. “I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the WORLD – going out to the movies 2 have fun.”

Wilson is not the only celebrity who has shared her thoughts. Trainwreck star Amy Schumer took to Twitter to express her condolences shortly after news of the tragedy broke.

“My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana,” Schumer wrote.

The film’s director, Judd Apatow, offered his condolences as well, telling Entertainment Weekly that the shooting “devastates” him.

“One of the reasons we make these movies is because the world can be so horrifying and we all need to laugh just to deal with it,” Apatow said in a statement to EW. “So to have this happen in a room where people were smiling and laughing devastates me. My thoughts and love go out to the victims and anyone touched by this madness or any madness. We, as a country, need to find a way to do better.”

MIRROR.CO.UK – Funnyman James Corden and Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson have been named the hottest ‘plus-size’ celebrities.

The stars came top in a poll of 2,352 Brits asked who they thought were the most attractive stars with more to love.

Melissa McCarthy, Queen Latifah and Kim Kardashian’s brother Rob were also among the top 10.

James Corden previously revealed how he has been working hard to slim down since relocating to LA to host The Late, Late Show.

The TV star dropped a whopping six stone and the actor, whose first big TV role was in the series Fat Friends, now weighs in at a relatively slimline 15 stone.

Darrell Freeman, managing director of Big Dude Clothing, said: “Britons have spoken, crowning Rebel Wilson and James Corden as the most attractive, overweight celebrities.

“I think in recent years we’ve seen a shift in the number of overweight celebrities coming to prominence.

“There used to be a bit of stigma around having to be thin in the celebrity world but there is now more of a place for the larger celebrities.”

When provided with before and after pictures of stars who had lost weight, more than two thirds of those polled said they preferred the way celebrities looked before they shed the pounds.

EONLINE.COM – Rebel Wilson isn’t going to let a little bump in the road stop her from conquering her goals.

The comedian recently revealed on Twitter that she was embarking on a challenge to completely eliminate refined sugar from her diet, but she ran into a bit of a snag on day 20.

“I lost the NO (refined) SUGAR CHALLENGE after 20 days…had a scary taxi ride and succumbed to ice-cream & Mars Bar…but back on wagon,” she wrote yesterday.

Wilson, who is currently tweeting from her vacation in Dubai with boyfriend Mickey Gooch Jr., noted to fans that she hopped right back on the health train almost as quickly as she fell off.

“I’m going great, feeling great, resisting all processed sugar,” she told one follower after they asked about her progress.

Of course, there’s been plenty of discussion surrounding Wilson’s figure in the recent months.

Earlier this year, the Pitch Perfect 2 star opened up about why she felt that her physical appearance was her biggest asset.

“I took something that was seen as a disadvantage–no one thinks, if you’re fat, that you’re going to be an actress and everyone’s going to love you–and turned it into a positive,” she told Australia’s Daily Life.

“I do have these dreams, like, ‘What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?'” the actress confessed. “But then I think, that’s never going to happen.”
