Olivia died Monday at the age of 73 surrounded by family at her California ranch after withdrawing from the public eye as her health deteriorated.

She had a roller-coaster 30-year battle with breast cancer, which she was first diagnosed with in 1992 and which came back in 2013 and 2017.

During her life she was an enthusiastic advocate for breast cancer research, even trekking over 228kms along the Great Wall Of China as a fundraiser to build a cancer and wellness center in Melbourne, where she was largely raised.

In 2020 Rebel embarked on a Year Of Health and lost almost 80lbs – nearly a decade after she starred with Olivia in the Australian comedy A Few Best Men.

After news of Olivia’s death spread around the world, Rebel, her fellow Australian, shared a touching Instagram post in memory of her.

She wrote to Olivia: ‘You were the most gorgeous lady inside and out, you are a true Aussie icon and to play your daughter on screen in A FEW BEST MEN was beyond an honor.

‘Seeing you star in the huge Hollywood blockbuster GREASE with your natural accent was so instrumental to me as a little girl, helping me to believe that it was possible for an Aussie girl to star in huge international musicals.’

Rebel went on to star in major Hollywood musicals herself when she became a scene-stealing presence in the Pitch Perfect films.

In her post about Olivia she recalled: ‘You were the reason I auditioned for my high school production of GREASE at 15 – I was only in the chorus, but it was a start!’

Rebel added: ‘You tried to teach me about health years before I took it seriously. You were so kind to me and it was such a blessing to know you Olivia.

‘I’ll never forget us singing at the piano in our lunch break on set together – what a complete legend you are! I am so sad you are gone Love and Light always to you ONJ, Rebel xoxo’.

Earlier this year Rebel revealed that her staggering 80lbs weight loss was inspired by her desire to eventually become a mother.

For years she has been candid about the fact that she was looking at the prospect of freezing her eggs, which was an influence on her decision to slim down.

Covering People this May, Rebel revealed that a fertility specialist ‘looked me up and down and said: ‘You’d do much better if you were healthier.”

Although her reflex response was to think he was ‘so rude,’ she eventually came to the conclusion the doctor ‘was right. I was carrying around a lot of excess weight.’

She has insisted on her fitness journey ‘wasn’t a goal to get to a certain weight. It was just being the healthiest version of myself.’

Rebel, who is 5’3′, has previously credited Vivamayr, a luxury medical center and holistic retreat in Lake Altaussee, Austria, for her astonishing weight loss journey.

Now she has revealed that the process of improving her health is involved ‘dealing with the emotional issues that caused me to emotionally eat, and that’s a process. You cry a lot, analyze things. I’d never done that before.’
