Rebel Wilson has showed off her weight loss in a stunning black mini dress at the AACTA Awards in Sydney on Tuesday night.


The Pitch Perfect actress, 41, went for a figure-hugging number with long sleeves and a zip detail paired with black court shoes.

Embracing the glamour of the occasion, Rebel opted for full glam makeup with her bright blonde hair styles in sleek curls.

Rebel arrived at the ceremony on a golf cart with her good friend Brittany Hockley.

She was joined at the event by fellow A-listers including Russell Crowe and Taika Waititi.

While Rebel is loving her new found body confidence, she has admitted that not everyone was encouraged by her weight loss transformation.

The star has lost a whopping 5.5 st over the past 18 months as she named 2020 as her 'year of health'.

During an interview with the BBC she admitted: "I got a lot of pushback from my own team actually here in Hollywood when I said, 'OK I'm gonna do this year of health. I feel like I'm really gonna physically transform and change my life.' And they were like, 'Why? Why would you want to do that?'"

But she said it was because of the amount of money she was earning already with how she looked.

Rebel added: "Because I was earning millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person."

She talked about being more confident when she was bigger but realised she had some of her eating behaviours weren't healthy.

The actress said she'd be able to be confident on a red carpet despite being bigger than other stars.

She said: "I was still very confident being bigger and you know loved myself. I would rock a red carpet and was probably double the size and sometimes triple the weight of other actresses, but like I still felt confident in that."

She added: "But I knew deep down inside some of the emotional eating behaviours I was doing was not healthy. Like I did not need a tub of ice cream every night… That was me, kind of numbing emotions using food, which wasn't the healthiest thing."

When the celeb arrived into Australia from the US on Monday, the Pitch Perfect actress was granted special permission by the New South Wales Government to avoid the mandatory 72-hour quarantine.

She was able to go to a public park at 5pm on Monday after arriving into the country at 8:30am, something most other travellers wouldn't be allowed to do.

Rebel was seen at the park with some friends and family, including her sister Annachi.

Rebel's manager told Daily Mail on Wednesday: "Rebel received government permission from NSW Minister for Health and Medical Research Brad Hazzard."

However, he would not reveal why she received permission to skip quarantine.

Under the state public health requirements, fully-vaccinated travellers arriving from overseas have to isolate at their home or accommodation for 72 hours after arriving in NSW.
