Wilson has been open about her drastic weight loss and its effects on her career. "I got a lot of pushback from my own team actually, here in Hollywood, when I said, 'OK, I'm going to do this year of health, I feel like I'm really going to physically transform and change my life,'" she explained in a 2021 interview.

"And they were like, 'Why? Why would you want to do that?' Because I was earning millions of dollars being the funny fat girl and being that person," Wilson recalled of her team advising her against bettering herself.
