“If I’ve had a sad or stressful day, food is also comfort. I once bought this hilarious slogan sweater that says ‘Food is my only friend’. I thought it was really cute,” she quipped.
The comedienne did remark that her life in Los Angeles affords her the opportunity to eat more healthily and that her outlook has been changed about nutrition. “Living in Los Angeles you learn a lot about health. I now drink green juices and I’m trying to do gluten-free,” she admitted. “But I don’t do it 100 percent – I’m not a maniac!”
In an Instagram post announcing her Vogue Australia cover, Wilson spoke about the experience. “I never would’ve thought this element would be added to my life: Vogue Covergirl,” she wrote. “This was such an amazing experience, thank you Vogue Australia and to all the designers and stylists who worked on this shoot!”
