Rebel Wilson's shock Ozempic confession

The Aussie star has admitted using the drug to maintain her weight.

Aussie superstar Rebel Wilson has opened up about her dramatic weight loss journey, detailing her experience with the controversial drug Ozempic.

The drug, which is meant to be used to treat type 2 diabetes, has risen in prominence over the last year or so as more and more celebrities credit it to helping them lose weight.

Rebel, 44, is currently promoting her book Rebel Rising: A Memoir and spoke about her Ozempic use in an interview with The Sunday Times over the weekend, saying she used the drug for maintenance.

Rebel's Ozempic admission: 'Can be good'

“Someone like me could have a bottomless appetite for sweets, so I think those drugs can be good," she said, before clarifying that she no longer uses the drug, according to People.


Rebel has previously spoken about her 2020 "year of health" which saw her lose weight after a fertility doctor encouraged her to do so for a better chance at IVF.

She talked about the pressure of losing weight, saying that people thought she'd lose the "pigeonhole in my career" playing the "fat, funny character".

She then said she started eating a high-protein, low-sugar diet and taking long walks, while discussing her emotional eating with a doctor. She also clarified she didn't "hate" herself at any weight, but disliked her relationship with food.


“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 behaviours,” she said. “For example, eating a whole tub of ice cream every night and then feeling bad about myself, making myself get up early in the morning and go to the gym for an hour and a half and running on that treadmill until sometimes my back would hurt.”
