Rebel Wilson reveals she was kidnapped at gunpoint in Africa – as she describes the ‘petrifying’ ordeal of being imprisoned overnight

Rebel Wilson has revealed she was once kidnapped at gunpoint while travelling through Africa. 

Speaking to army hardman Ant Middleton on his Sky One series Straight Talking, the Australian actress, 40, described the ordeal as ‘petrifying’.  

‘There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique,’ Rebel recalled.

‘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’.

Fearing for their lives, Rebel and her fellow travellers obeyed, and were taken to a ‘house in the middle of nowhere’ and held overnight. 

Luckily, Rebel quickly concocted a clever plan to keep her fellow prisoners safe.

‘I felt like I was very good in the crisis. I was like a team leader,’ the Pitch Pe4fect star explained. 

‘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, Rebel and the other travellers were unharmed, and by morning were allowed to return to their truck.

They made a quick getaway and eventually managed to cross the South African border.  

While Rebel still has no idea why she was held up, she does have a compelling theory.  

‘I think maybe those guys, maybe, used us to smuggle illegal things in the bottom of the truck,’ she speculated.
