Actress Rebel Wilson made headlines for her massive 80-pound weight loss after she embarked on a “year of health,” but now the actress admitted she’s gained some weight back due to work and stress.

“Working really hard has meant that, coz [sic] of all the stress, I’ve gained 14kg’s (30 pounds)! It makes me feel bad about myself … it shouldn’t … but it does,” the 43-year-old “Pitch Perfect” star shared on Instagram alongside a photo of herself in a hot tub.

“I’m really proud of the work I’ve been doing on new movies and my memoir, it’s just been a LOT and I’ve lost focus on my healthy lifestyle,” she added. “Anyone else going through the same thing?”

The comments section on the post was flooded with words of support and solidarity from Wilson’s 11.1 million followers. 

“Losing weight is the easy bit … keeping it off is the biggest battle,” one popular comment said.

“It’s hard! Everyone is proud of you, but we already loved you, didn’t we? No matter what size, you’re still beautiful & hilarious. Not everyone was meant to be a size 2. Certainly don’t feel BAD about it,” another person wrote.

Wilson previously said her team was not fully on board when she told them she was planning to lose weight. The actress had made a name for herself playing overweight characters in comedies at that point, like “Fat Amy” in the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, as The Daily Wire previously reported.

“I got a lot of pushback from my own team actually, here in Hollywood, when I said ‘Okay, I’m going to do this year of health, I feel like I’m really gonna physically transform and change my life,’” the “Bridesmaids” actress said during a 2021 interview with BBC.

“And they were like, ‘Why? Why would you wanna do that?’ Because I was earning millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person,” she continued.

The actress said she worked on incorporating healthier habits during her “year of health” and stopping the use of food as a coping mechanism for difficult emotions. Wilson said she was also inspired by a fertility doctor who told her she would have an easier time getting pregnant if she lost weight.
