Sarah and Dave married in a small ceremony in February 2021. Sarah recounted her love story with the Australian comedian eight months after their wedding. later, in an interview with Vogue Australia, she told,
At the beginning of the pandemic last year, I got locked down in Melbourne with one of my best mates and we fell in love. We’ve been friends since 2014, lived together, traveled together, always excited to see each other, but totally platonic. We’ve just never been single at the same time. I proposed and we got married in my backyard.

In the same interview, Snook also stated that she would no longer work out and lose weight in order to look a certain way for a role. Instead, she boldly criticizes the media’s beauty standards for women and bravely chooses to defy them. She also admitted to feeling the pressure, saying, “I mean, every time you get a role, you’re like: ‘Oh, this one’s the one. I’m going to really work out and get fit and look like the movie star I would hope to become or have a career doing.”
But things have changed for the star now that she has broken free from the confines of beauty standards. Sarah Snook stated,
Can I really be f*cked subscribing to an unrealistic beauty standard that then perpetuates and makes more women unhappy because they feel like they can’t attain something that’s not actually realistic anyway?
We couldn’t agree more, actually! While others are concerned about a minor weight gain, Sarah is going about her business, achieving one milestone after another. However, this does not imply that she is not taking care of herself. She enjoys a good workout, but her approach is unusual.
When you think of a pretty actress’s workout routine, you might think of yoga, pilates, the gym, or even a simple run, but Sarah’s approach may surprise you. previously, she told that she keeps in shape by chopping wood in her backyard!
Nonetheless, Sarah Snook has the audience hooked on the show, and her on-screen performance is superb. Needless to say, her thriving career is unaffected by the comments about her weight gain.
