Rebel Wilson reveals why she believes Adele 'hates' her

The star's memoir, Rebel Rising, has been making headlines.

Rebel Wilson has made the surprising claim that she believes singer Adele doesn't like her because the two women would sometimes be 'confused' for each other.

The Pitch Perfect star made the surprising claim in her new memoir, Rebel Rising, which In Touch shared an excerpt from ahead of its release.

"Some actresses would get offended if I called them plus-size in this book, so I have to be careful with what I say. This is why, I think, Adele hates me," Rebel writes. "There was a moment when she was bigger, and some people would confuse us for one another … I am assuming, because to be fair I’ve never asked her."


Rebel shared that at the "few events" that she and Adele both attended, the singer "always quickly turns away" if Rebel approaches.

"As if my fatness might rub off on her if I were near her for more than thirty seconds. That she didn’t like being compared to 'Fat Amy,'" she added, referring to her iconic Pitch Perfect character.

Rebel states in her book that she got her start by playing "the fat funny girl, making self-deprecating jokes".

She famously lost 35kg during her 'Year of Health', something she did to give her a better chance to freeze her eggs and have "the eggs be better quality".

"It wasn't even really myself, it was more thinking of a future mini-me, really," Rebel said during an Instagram Live in July 2021.

She went on to welcome her daughter Royce in November 2022 via surrogate.

The actress previously revealed that her team didn't agree with her plans to lose weight.

"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?'" she recalled during an interview with BBC.


She added that she knew she needed to address her relationship with food, "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.

"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."
