Rebel Wilson lost more than 3kg in four days on set of 'Cats' due to heat

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Rebel Wilson revealed that she lost over three kilos in just four days on the set of the upcoming feature, Cats.

The Australian actress told the publication that shooting her scenes was "pretty uncomfortable" thanks to the high temperatures on set.

"I lost eight pounds (3.6kg) shooting my number in four days," Wilson, who plays Jennyanydots, in the Tom Hooper directed film, continued before disclosing that temperatures reached nearly 100 Fahrenheit (37.7 Celsius) on set. "One, because there’s a lot of physicality … but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 Fahrenheit (37.7 Celsius), so that we could never cool down."

Watch as the comedian reveals her remarkable weight loss...

"These people are like, the best dancers in the whole world, so they can’t cool their muscles down or they could get an injury and they’d be out of the film … So they’d heat up the set like a sauna so we would never cool down, but (it) made it pretty uncomfortable."

Wilson went onto gush about how she was so excited to work on Cats, which is based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's show of the same name. "You definitely felt how epic it was," she stated. "From the sets and Tom Hooper directing... and then Andrew Lloyd Webber, who is a musical theater god."
"He would pop up on set and he'd just be hiding in the shadows, and all of a sudden you'd be singing and like, 'Oh, it's Andrew Lloyd Webber, geez better be in key!' The artistry that's gone into this film, and to know that it's all live singing and dancing. Spectacular is the right word to describe the film. It's epic."

The Isn't it Romantic star appears alongside Taylor Swift, Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, James Corden, and Ian McKellen in the musical, which is directed by Tom Hooper.
