Rebel Wilson has hit her weight loss goal.

The Pitch Perfect star has lost a huge amount of weight, hitting her goal of 75kgs. Rebel shared with Stuff that she suffers from polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which caused her to rapidly gain weight when she was about 20 years old. This added to her habit of eating for comfort.

“I’d eat with any emotion. If I was stressed or had exams coming up,’’ she said. "But then I’d also eat if I was really happy like I went out on an awesome night and had a great time. Other people would just go home and go to bed, but I'll be like, 'what am I going to do? I'll just eat these chips and then go to bed,'' she added.

The 40-year-old actress previously admitted that she struggled with emotional eating before embarking on her impressive weight loss transformation as part of her 'Year of Health.'

The Pitch Perfect star is currently romancing Jacob Busch but has revealed that before finding love with the billionaire, she spent an entire year going on dates with "anyone who asked her out."
