Rebel Wilson Reveals She Was Kidnapped At Gunpoint In Africa
Rebel Wilson has revealed that she was kidnapped at gunpoint in rural Mozambique.
“We were on this cattle truck and these men came on another truck with a lot of guns,” she said in a recent episode of Sky’s Straight Talking. “[They pulled up beside us] with the big guns and they were like, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to get off your truck.'” The actress revealed that they were taken to a house, where they were held overnight.
Once at the house, Wilson found that she was impressed with how she handled the situation, saying, “I felt like I was very good in the crisis. I was like a team leader. 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.”
The next day, their captors released all of them, unharmed. “They came and said, ‘Your truck is ready now. You can go, go, go.’ We just got back on that truck and got out of there and crossed the South African border a few hours later.”
While Wilson is not completely sure of the motive behind their abduction, she did have a theory. “I think maybe those guys, maybe, used us to smuggle illegal things in the bottom of the truck.”
Along with a new man in her life, Wilson has recently opened up about her 40 pound weight-loss journey and freezing her eggs. Her episode of Straight Talking will air Thursday, January 14.
