The well-known Australian actress Rebel Wilson (44) will publish her autobiography “Rebel Rising” on April 2nd. Wilson reveals juicy details from her upcoming book in advance. The 44-year-old has now revealed to the US magazine “People” that she had sex for the first time at the age of 35. With this very personal story, Wilson wants to send a “positive message” to others.

“People can wait until they’re ready or wait until they’re a little more mature,” Wilson tells the US site, adding. “I think that could be a positive message. Of course you don’t have to wait until you’re in your 30s like me, but you shouldn’t let yourself be put under pressure as a young person.”

She included her very private revelation in her upcoming book to give younger people in particular the feeling that “not everyone has to lose their virginity as a teenager.” In the same breath, she describes herself as a “late bloomer” and reports that in the past, especially as a teenager, she avoided questions about this topic because it “embarrassed her.”

She also once lied and told her best friend that she lost her virginity at 23 “just to avoid the questions.”

The successful actress, who is known, among other things, for the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy and the comedy “Bridesmaids,” further revealed to “People”: “If I had been born 20 years later, I would probably have explored my sexuality more.” It was only after her father’s death that she began to open up more and develop feelings for a woman.

Wilson is now engaged to fashion and jewelry designer Ramona Agruma. The couple had their first child in November 2022. Daughter Royce Lillian was born by a surrogate mother. “I can’t describe the love I have for her, she is an amazing miracle,” Wilson wrote on Instagram at the time.
