Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson has had her eggs frozen 'as a back-up plan'

She insisted many older women could benefit from the procedure

Actress Rebel Wilson has had her eggs frozen to improve her chances of becoming a mum in the future.

The Pitch Perfect star, 39, said she recently visited a fertility clinic to have her eggs frozen and admitted the move felt empowering.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, on Australian radio station KIIS 106.5, Rebel insisted many older women could benefit from putting a "back-up plan" in place when it comes to pregnancy plans.

She said of the process, which preserves a woman's fertility so she can try for children at a later date: "I've just come from the fertility clinic actually. It's a back-up plan. Career women now [...] have options, you know. Like, I think a lot of women, especially in their thirties or if they can in their forties should think about doing it now. A lot of my friends in Hollywood are doing it."

The Bridesmaids actress, who is currently single, joked that she's waiting to be asked to appear on dating show The Bachelorette to find the right man.

I've just come from the fertility clinic actually. It's a back-up plan.

She continued: "I'm waiting to go on the Australian version of The Bachelorette. Yeah, I keep putting it out there but they haven't called me up there and I would take it very seriously."

Asked what kind of man she's looking for, Rebel said: "Former rugby players. Yeah, I like physical strength, I'm not into skinny guys."

She confessed it was a "struggle" to eat healthily under the film crew's watchful eye.

She said: "I'm actually filming a documentary right now so I have a camera crew also in the car filming. It's very Hollywood. They follow me around and I'm trying to be healthy but it's a struggle."
