Rebel Wilson, the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star came to fame with her role as Fat Amy in the 2012 rom-com. Once Rebel told Cosmo that she can have a complicated relationship with food. “I love me some ice cream or dessert, and it comes at times when I’m happy or sad. So when I have an incredibly successful day, I want to celebrate and reward myself with food. If I’ve had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort,” she explained. “You would probably describe it as emotional or stress-eating. I don’t do drugs; I don’t really drink … so eating is my one vice. I wouldn’t ever want to totally give it up.”
