The Aussie actress, who is reported to have lost 28 kilos following her well-documented health journey in 2020, maintains she would still feel "just as confident" whether she was a "size 16" or "size 8".

Explaining her lifestyle change, Wilson said, "to me what the year of health was being a healthier version of myself."

"I loved being bigger, it never stopped me from anything, or achieving anything in my life," she continued, adding her outlook to nutrition changed as she was getting older.

"It's not about a number or a dress size, it was just about being the healthiest version of me and I dedicated 2020 to doing that," she shared.

"I fell from the roof… that's how I got known… in a freak accident," she laughed.

"Some people thought I was dead… I just sprained my ribs and my wrist."

During a trip to Africa as an Australian student ambassador, Wilson fell ill with Malaria, and claims a hospital stint inspired her to become an actress.

The UNSW Law School graduate subsequently went on to study acting, write and stage her own productions, and make her way to Hollywood in her 30s.

Wilson also discussed her landmark legal win against Bauer Media for eight articles they published in Women's Day and OK! Magazine.

The decision, which awarded Wilson $4.5 million in damages to her reputation, after the publication claimed the star lied about her age, name and upbringing, was in short "not fun", the actress reveals.

"I didn't like it because I'm someone who works their arse off and works very hard to have my reputation," she explained, citing the "tall poppy syndrome" in Australia remains culturally in existence.

"I had to go to court and obviously prove my life story which was very easy, because there were thousands of witnesses," she said.

Wilson described the process as "standing up to a bully" and noted following the million-dollar lawsuit she "made [her] point."

"They haven't messed with me since."

This week, the actress donated one million dollars to the Australian Theatre for Young People, of which she is an ambassador and alumni, to help the theatre company reach the goal of $2.6 million to set up their new home.
