Actress Rebel Wilson has been so open about her year of health—which is now well into a two-year journey—to not only motivate herself but to also motivate her followers. The comedian, who stars in the new Netflix film Senior Year, says don’t believe what you read about her weight loss online unless it comes from her directly.
This week, the star says the Daily Mail falsely reported that the 42-year-old star lost weight using the Mayr Method and diet pills, a claim she fiercely denies. The is diet based on the “Mayr Cure” created by Austrian physician Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr in 1920 and attending one of the VivaMayr Clinics costs around the world can costs up to $2,000 per week.
Wilson has been vocal in the past about how she’s been able to trim down and cites healthier habits like walking, working with a nutritionist and getting more sleep as part of her overall plan. While many celebrities have remained private about their personal transformations, the comedian has shared that going public and sharing updates with her fanbase has kept her accountable. Now, she’s being just as candid about tabloid rumors. “This was NEVER my diet, please stop writing this stuff,” she wrote across a screenshot of the article.
Although she’s visited a VivaMayr clinic in the past, she says she does not endorse the diet. “If I’m endorsing something, you’ll see it only as official posts on my official and verified social media,” wrote the star.
In addition to denying using that specific diet, she also shares that she didn’t take a magic pill to get where she is today. “Also [I] have NEVER endorsed any diet pills or magic weight loss pills or crypto currency. If you see stuff like this online please report it as a scam — do not send it to me as a DM— report it on the social media site you see it on when you see it,” Wilson said. “Thanks everyone – it’s really annoying when people use my image unlawfully or in misleading ways. Do NOT want anyone to get scammed. Love you guys xoxo.”
