Rebel Wilson Got Candid About How People Treat Her Differently Since She's Lost Weight

"Is this what other people experienced all the time?"

ICYMI, Rebel Wilson has been documenting her weight loss journey on Instagram.

In a now-deleted IG post from last summer, Rebel shared her goals, writing, “I’ll be honest with you guys - with my 'Year of Health' mission I’m trying to get to 75kg’s [165 lbs] and career wise am trying to get one of my movies into production before the end of the year! Both of these things are requiring a daily effort and there’s constant set backs — but I’m working hard x.”

She frequently updated fans of her efforts on social media, never shying away from sharing when she had a tough day or hit a bump in the road.

Then last November, The Hustle actor revealed that she had hit her goal "with one month to spare."

Well, earlier this week on The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed and Erin, Rebel got candid about life post-weight loss, calling it "interesting."

"I liked to think I looked good at all sizes and stuff," she said. "And I've always been quite confident, so it's not like I wasn't confident and now I'm super confident. I think what's been really interesting is how other people treat you."

"Sometimes being bigger, people didn't necessarily look twice at you," she continued. "Now that I'm in good shape, people offer to carry my groceries to the car and hold doors open for you."

This sounds like a weird, twisted alternate universe where you get special privileges if you fit society's beauty standards. Oh wait...haha, that's just real life. 🙃 Imagine if we went out of our way to extend kindness to everyone, no matter what they looked like.
