The comedian revealed in June that she was in a relationship with fashion designer Ramona Agruma.
She said at the time, “I thought I was looking for a Disney Prince…but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess.” Before going public with the fact that she was in a new relationship with a woman, the Sydney Morning Herald was accused of trying to portray Wilson as gay.
The newspaper denied the allegation but deleted a gossip column and its author issued an apology, saying they “sincerely regret that Rebel found this difficult”.
Wilson hosted the Baftas for the first time this year, cracking jokes about his dramatic weight loss, the royal family and his flop movie Cats, while giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the middle finger. In September, she told the PA news agency that she had been offered more serious acting roles since losing weight.
Speaking to the BBC’s Nomia Iqbal in December last year, the entertainer reflected on her decision to lose weight in her ‘year of health’, after being the ‘funny fat girl’ at Hollywood, and her own fertility issues.
“I always try to do the fertility journey, even though it’s emotional and you have hope and your hopes are dashed, so I feel for any woman who goes through it,” said Wilson, who made the decision to freeze her eggs after learning she had polycystic ovary syndrome.
“I was the classic example of a career woman who went out into the world, didn’t even think about the kids and then suddenly, in my mid-thirties, it’s like, Oh wait, is that that I want this as an option? And then if I do, what should I do?
“It might be nice if I had my own kids, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen.”
