She captioned it: "But on the inside," along with three tired face emojis, suggesting her appearance was one thing, while her feelings were another. 

The Pitch Perfect star was called "gorgeous," and "beautiful" by her followers, but some were concerned. 

"You look beautiful, but your eyes look sad, hope it changes soon. You are a great example of strength beauty and sunny character so don’t give up," wrote one, while another said: "Your eyes give you away, look tired. But you're an inspiration for a lot of people. Keep that inner fire burning."

In a previous Instagram post, Rebel revealed she's been feeling a little "rough" due to a number of reasons. 

Her recent admissions surrounding a kidnapping and sexual harassment are likely the source of her angst. 

Rebel made the confessions during her Straight Talking TV series with Ant Middleton.

"There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique," she recounted.

Fortunately, Rebel escaped physically unscathed and called herself "lucky" for being let go.
