Rebel Wilson is ’77 pounds lighter’ and unrecognizable as she hosts BAFTA 2022

The BAFTA awards happened yesterday and it was hosted by ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ and ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ star, Australian star, Rebel Wilson.

For her red carpet, Rebel Wilson wore an hourglass in a blue sequined and black tulle gown that showed off her slim and toned figure to perfection.

Later when she hosted the event she was clad in a red shimmery gown. In true Rebel style she started off with a monologue that addressed what she knew everyone would be talking about the most – her incredible weight loss.

Watch her opening speech here:

The Australian actress kept it light and funny and said she lost weight for a guy. She then joked around a bit more and before she moved on to the next subject chimed in with, “No, guys, seriously I did not lose weight just for a guy, as if! I did it to get more acting roles… Boy, I’m now so excited I can play the non-funny love-interest in an Adam Sandler movie.”

Since 2020 Rebel made a serious change in her lifestyle and fitness routine and has lost over 77 pounds. Her battle to get back in shape was not instantaneous nor was it easy.

The BAFTA award was a big night and ‘Dune’ and Benedict Cumberbatch’s ‘The Power of the Dog’ went home with most prizes.

In terms of nominations, Warner Bros. ‘Dune’ was the highest with 11 nominations, ‘Power of the Dog’ was nominated in eight categories ‘Belfast’ was nominated in six categories.

Rebel Wilson kept it fun and edgy throughout the evening chiming in with serious issues like gender disparity and how Bond heroes are turning 60 while their girlfriends are just 25.

While the evening was star studded and entertaining, all eyes stayed with Rebel Wilson who was not only kept up her edgy, roasty sarcastic humour, but she also stunned everyone with her dramatic transformation which, at first sight was nearly unrecognizable.
