Rebel Wilson Revealed She Was Kidnapped At Gunpoint

Rebel Wilson has revealed that she was once kidnapped at gunpoint.

The actor said she was travelling through Africa with a group of friends and they were in Mozambique when the terrifying ordeal happened.

Speaking to Ant Middleton for his new show Straight Talking, the 40-year-old said she and her pals were pulled from a truck and taken to a house in the middle of nowhere.

She told the former British soldier: "There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique.

"We were on this cattle truck and these men came on another truck with a lot of guns. [They pulled up beside us] with the big guns and they were like, 'Yeah, you've got to get off your truck'.

"They took us to a house in the middle of nowhere. I felt like I was very good in the crisis. I was like a team leader."

Wilson continued: "They sat us down, and I said, 'Everybody link arms,' because I was petrified in the night that they might want to take one of the girls or something."

Luckily, the next morning, the group were allowed to leave after suspicions they were carrying illegal goods were unfounded.

She added: "Luckily we weren't harmed and then the next day they came and said, 'Your truck is ready now. You can go go go.'

"We didn't ask any questions. We just got back on that truck and got out of there and crossed the South African border a few hours later.

"I think maybe those guys, maybe, used us to smuggle illegal things in the bottom of the truck."

And if you thought you were surprised by that tale, you're not alone, Middleton didn't see it coming either.

He said: "I was expecting you to say, 'Yeah I came face to face with a snake or a spider', and then you tell me you got kidnapped at gunpoint.

"You need to do a hardcore action movie."

During the episode, Wilson also opened up about her love life.

She told Middleton that during 2019 she said yes every time she was asked out on a date.

"I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out," the Bridesmaids star said.

"It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just had to give lots of people a chance and then I learnt lots about myself."
