Rebel Wilson is looking better than ever as she continues to show off her new figure after dropping 80 pounds.

The Australian actress, who made 2020 headlines for commencing a weight loss journey, is fresh from a little swimwear action on her social media, going classy in black.

Posting to her Instagram Stories this weekend, Rebel sizzled for an outdoor moment while enjoying a waterfront setting, also showing off her slim figure in a plunging bathing suit as she soaked up the sun.

Footage showed the Senior Year star drawing attention to her trim frame as she went slinky in a satin-effect swimsuit.

Rebel filmed herself on a wooden deck area overlooking nature as she enjoyed river views and the last of the summer sunshine. The Olly partner made sure to include a well-known and trendy brand, too – her visor from hip activewear label Alo Yoga.

Adding in glam shades, Rebel perused the scenic view, although with no geotag, fans had no clue as to where she might have been.
