For the past two "Pitch Perfect" installments, Wilson has been sporting her usual body frame. However, in "Pitch Perfect 3," fans were shocked to see a drastic rebel wilson weight loss. While the improvements have garnered a lot of positive comments and reactions, some of the fans also expressed worry and suspicion.

According to reports, some fans suspected that Rebel Wilson weight loss might have been brought about by pressure from the producers for "Pitch Perfect 3." Behind the scenes, photos of the movie revealed a much slimmer "How To Be Single" actress.

According to reports, Wilson took to Instagram to share to everyone that it was her decision to lose weight and that she was doing it for herself and not everyone else.
