Rebel recalls kidnapping

Rebel Wilson was once captured by kidnappers in Mozambique and held overnight.

The Pitch Perfect star opened up about the most terrifying experience of her life during an upcoming appearance on Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking, which will air on Thursday.

"There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique," she 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.' 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.

"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, 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."

Elsewhere in the interview, Rebel - who is currently in a relationship with Jacob Busch - revealed that before finding love with the billionaire, she spent an entire year going on dates with "anyone who asked (her) out."

"I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out," she grinned. "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 learned lots about myself."

And when asked what she learned from the experience, Rebel said she now knows never to "shut herself off to love."

"Don't shut yourself off to love," she explained. "I had lots of really good friends but I never allowed myself to get into relationships until the last few years. Life is short and you really have to go for it."
