Rebel Wilson's latest selfie sparks fan debate

The star has been open about her weight loss journey

Rebel Wilson has been delighting and inspiring fans by sharing her "Year of Health" with them, but her latest selfie caused a wave of response which had nothing to do with her weight loss journey

The Australian actress posted a selfie with two friends - including Isn't it Romantic producer Gina Matthews - and some of her followers were not happy with Rebel's travel antics during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

"How are you travelling so much?" wrote one fan, while another said: "Do travel restrictions not apply to you?"

But the star’s loyal followers ensured Rebel's name and reputation remained untarnished when they pointed out: "This was taken before the virus!"

In fact, Rebel's caption said as much, when she wrote: "Producer power. Missing these two powerhouses," suggesting she's not been able to catch up with her pals face-to-face.

Eagle-eyed fans did also point out Gina's amusing faux pas though. In one photo, she was casually smiling for the camera and in the next she had her fingers raised in a V, only it was the wrong way round!

"You might want to tell Gina that’s not the victory sign," commented one follower.

Rebel is nearing the end of a successful 2020 during which she’s lost 60lbs and completely overhauled her health. 

She recently returned from the wellness retreat Viva Mayr in the Austrian Alps and has since been soaking up the festive season in New York.

Rebel shared photos of herself looking stunning in a pair of tight red jeans, ice skating at the Rockefeller Center in front of a Christmas tree. 

Her fitness journey began when she made the decision to freeze her eggs to potentially become a mum when the time is right. She decided to freeze them in 2019 and she wanted to be healthy for the procedure.

"It's a backup plan," she revealed on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show after visiting the fertility clinic. "Career women now have options," she added.
