Rebel Wilson reveals using Ozempic to lose weigh: ‘Those drugs ‘can be good’


Rebel Wilson revealed that she used Ozempic to help her reduce weight. In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, the star said that she briefly used the medicine to reduce weight after her fertility doctor encouraged her to do so in order to improve her chances of IVF success.

The Australian actor, who has been in films such as Pitch Perfect and Isn’t It Romantic, stated, “Someone like me could have a bottomless appetite for sweets, so I think those drugs can be good.” She also added that she no longer uses the drug.

Meanwhile, Rebel discussed her weight reduction journey and said, “Basically no one apart from my mom wanted me to lose weight. People thought I’d lose my pigeonhole in my career, playing the fat funny character, and they wanted me to continue in that.”

She also added, “I feel strongly that young women shouldn’t try to obsess over looking like Victoria’s Secret models — they should just look like themselves. I know that my relationship with food is complicated… I really think beauty is at any shape and size so I do really promote that. So people are like, ‘Well, how can you be so body-positive and then be hating yourself?’ But I wasn’t hating myself, I was only hating those shameful behaviors.”
