Sometimes people are more than what meets the eye. Everyone has things in their life that will tend to surprise others. Rebel Wilson is no exception to this. Her childhood and early adult life are nothing compared to what she has become. A world renowned actress, philanthropist, and strong role model.
Rebel was born in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia on March 2, 1980. She was an unassuming child and very shy. She has two sisters and one brother. She grew up with both parents and a loving support system. She attended an all girls high school. There she was supported by a very progressive approach to life. Her drama teacher encouraged her to come out of her shell and become less shy.
At 17 years old Rebel Wilson went to South Africa as part of a youth program. It was here that she contracted malaria. During her time of sickness she confessed to having hallucinations. These hallucinations showed her receiving awards for her acting. This prompted Rebel to start acting for the Australian Theater for Young People.
Rebel Wilson has been single for the bulk of her life. One brief relationship that lasted 3-4 months is the closest Rebel has come to committed relationships. She is a self proclaimed independent who believes that what is on the inside is what really counts.
A refreshing aspect of Rebel Wilson is her strong adherence to her personal ethics. She stands firm that there will be no nudity in any of her roles. When there was a scene that demanded nudity a body double was hired to stand in for Rebel. She stood firm on her negotiated contract that she herself set the terms for.
What many do not realize about Rebel Wilson is that she holds a law degree. She graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor’s in Theater and Performance as well as a Bachelor’s of Laws in 2009.
