Karen Gillan is believed to have undergone weight gain ever since she posted her character poster as Nebula to tease the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3. While many believe that the actress is pregnant, some Reddit users began to spread a conspiracy theory that Nebula's picture was photoshopped onto someone else's body. Karen Gillan has not responded to weight gain speculations, however, she has talked about her awkward pose in the character poster for Guardians of the Galaxy that could have made all the difference. Maybe she's not pregnant after all.
Karen Gillan rose to prominence when she starred in the British science fiction series Doctor Who in the role of Amy Pond, a primary companion to the Eleventh Doctor. Now, she's risen to international stardom and it's all thanks to her role as Ruby Roundhouse in the action films Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level. Her global fame may also be credited to her playing Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero films Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The fame that resulted from her portrayal of Nebula in the superhero franchise has proved to be a double-edged sword for her after the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 because of all the weight gain speculations and intense scrutiny of her body. Many fans wonder if she is pregnant just because she looked a little different in her character poster for the movie. Everyone is talking about it on Reddit and Twitter. Here's everything you need to know about Karen Gillan's weight gain and the speculations that she is pregnant!

Ever since the promotional cycle of the superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 began, it has been brought to the forefront on the internet that Nebula looked a lot different than she did in the previous movies which is to say she looked bigger than before. Suffice it to say that Karen Gillan is not having the jolliest time right now, what with the scrutiny that comes with weight gain speculations and many people going, 'Is she pregnant?'
The Scottish actress posted her character poster to tease the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 a few months ago and since then, people are trolling Karen Gillan for ruining the aesthetics of Nebula with her weight gain on Reddit and on Twitter. A few of them even blamed her for getting pregnant while she was playing such an important role and ruining the franchise. Some refuse to believe that Nebula would look like that and believe that her face was photoshopped onto somebody else's body though why would anyone do that, they have failed to explain. Someone wrote on Twitter,
Yeah someone tried to say she gained weight. Nope. I’m a woman with fluctuating weight. If a woman has Karen’s hourglass curves skinny, she well still have the hourglass heavier. A lot of the weight gain would be in the boobs. That is a man’s waist and hip line.

There was even a Reddit thread discussing a post with a crazy photoshop where Nebula's body was photoshopped onto some man's body which implied that Guardians of the Galaxy had gone downhill since the character got out of shape and began looking 'mannish' to them. And it's not just Reddit where people are going berserk about the whole thing. People are going crazy all over Twitter as well.
Though there is no information about Karen Gillan having weight gain, there are a few Scottish websites that claim that she is pregnant. But whether they are just cashing in on the people's frustration with Nebula's weight gain in Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3 and trying to get clicks from the fans of the franchise or they are actually reporting the truth, we cannot be sure.
Some people did support the claim that Karen Gillan is pregnant and that's why she had weight gain and that's why Nebula's body looks a little different in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 than in the previous movies based on a few Instagram pictures of her where they said she looked like she was sporting a baby bump. But if you scroll through her Instagram pictures, you will notice that she looks tall and modelesque as ever and not like she's gained weight.

However, it's not to be ignored that in close-up pictures or videos, Karen Gillan's face does not look as slim as she had before. She definitely looks puffy and on seeing that, you might think she had a weight gain. People who think that Nebula's body has been photoshopped onto someone else's body, stop with the conspiracy theory because you might be wrong on this one. Karen's only human, it's not impossible that she would gain weight.
Karen Gillan might actually be pregnant or maybe all the difference was due to her awkward pose as Nebula which has been discussed on Reddit. Or maybe it could be weight gain because of other reasons. But because she got married about a year ago, people think she may have decided to have a child. But we won't be able to confirm the pregnancy rumors because there's not a credible source who has reported on it. So, until the Guardians of the Galaxy star herself responds to all the speculations about her and opens up about why she's looking different, we are in the dark about it.
