Rebel Wilson reveals she lost virginity at 35-years-old after lying to her friends

Rebel Wilson reveals she lost virginity at 35-years-old after lying to her friends

She's hoping the revelation will be a 'positive message' to others

Rebel Wilson has opened up about various chapters of her life in her upcoming book Rebel Rising - including losing her virginity at the age of 35.

The 44-year-old's memoir is due to release on 2 April and Wilson has already been discussing some of what's contained within.

One of the chapters is dedicated to someone she worked with who she claims was an 'a**hole', later revealing that she had written about Sacha Baron Cohen, whose representatives have denied the claims and called them 'demonstrably false'.

A spokesperson for Baron Cohen told The Hollywood Reporter: "While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby."

Something else contained within the pages of Rebel Rising is the revelation that Wilson lost her virginity at the age of 35, but often tried to avoid the subject when her friends were discussing it because she was 'embarrassed'.

Speaking to People, she explained that she's hoping to send a 'positive message' that might help reassure young people 'not everybody has to lose their virginity as a teenager'.

"People can wait till they're ready or wait till they're a bit more mature," the Pitch Perfect star said.

"And I think that could be a positive message. You obviously don't have to wait until you're in your thirties like me, but you shouldn't feel pressure as a young person.

"There was one vague time, I think I told my best friend, 'Oh, yeah, I just did it to just get it over with when I was like 23,' just to really avoid the questions.

"Normally I would just leave the room when the conversation was happening, and then the people that said, 'Oh, at 24, it's so late.'

"And then I'm sitting here thinking, 'Oh my God, my number's 35. What the hell? I'm going to look like the biggest loser.'"

Wilson also reckons if she'd been born a couple of decades later, she might have had a 'very different' exploration of her own sexuality.

She said: "It's absolutely incredible, if I had been born 20 years later, I probably would've explored my sexuality more. I just knew I was attracted to men, and that was the normal thing.

"And so when I started opening myself up probably more after my father's death and realizing, oh, even though I'd seen marriage as a terrible thing and waste of time, I started opening myself up to that.

"And then only years later, meeting women and having feelings for a woman, and that, I just think it's a sign of where society kind of was."

Wilson is engaged to fashion designer Ramona Agruma, and in 2022, she welcomed first child Royce Lillian via surrogate.
