Watch: Rebel Wilson shows off toned abs in new pic

She has long been documenting her 40lb weight loss journey with her 9.2m fans on Instagram – and now followers think that Rebel Wilson has a new celebrity lookalike.

The actress, 40, shared a fresh-faced selfie to her account this weekend, showing her sporting a red baseball cap and wavy blonde locks while on a walk with an Austrian mountain range in the background.

Since being posted, the snap has garnered more than 139,000 ‘likes’ – and many comments suggesting that the trimmed-down star now resembles fellow actress Daryl Hannah.

One person wrote: “Had to look twice, thought this was Daryl Hannah.”

Another commented: “I thought the same thing!!”

A third shared: “Me, too!”

And a fourth added: “Wow you look like Daryl Hannah there."

American star Hannah, 59, is best known for appearing in films Splash and Blade Runner.

Wilson is coming to the end of her self-proclaimed ‘Year of Health’ – and is currently staying at the revered Viva Mayr Clinic in Austria.

It comes weeks after the actress looked significantly trimmer while posing for a picture with her younger sister Annachi on the set of an advert they were filming for Facebook’s Portal.

She could be seen in a sparkly green dress with wavy blonde hair, while her brunette sibling wore a blue top and jeans.

Captioning the image, Rebel wrote: “Wilson sisters crushing it on set! Can you guess who’s 11 years older?? Our second commercial together.”

The picture went down well with fans who left more than 163,000 ‘likes’, with many commenting on her shrinking appearance.

One person wrote: “You look stunning! Making Aussie women so proud and motivating me to lose weight.”

Another commented: “You’re looking awesome Rebel.”

A third shared: “Body goals.”

And a fourth added: ”Oh send me your old clothes!”

Rebel also has another younger sister, Liberty, as well a brother called Ryot.

The star has insisted that she has been achieving her weight loss safely and sustainably through eating healthily and exercising.

This has included high-intensity workouts with her Australian personal trainer Jono Castano Acero.

In a recent post - which saw her don a navy dress - Rebel updated fans on her progress.

She wrote: “Thanks for all the love so far on my ‘Year of Health’ journey - when I was reaching for the candies last night after dinner I thought to myself ‘hmmmm...better not’ and had a bottle of water instead.

“8kgs to go until I hit my goal - hopefully I can do it by the end of the year.”
