Rebel Wilson Was Once Kidnapped at Gunpoint

Here’s something you probably didn’t know about Rebel Wilson . . . she was once kidnapped at gunpoint in Mozambique, Africa.

She says, quote, “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 were driven to a house in the middle of nowhere, but Rebel didn’t lose her cool.  She says, quote, “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.”

Rebel figures illegal substances had been put in the vehicle to be smuggled across the border, and the kidnappers were there to pick it up.  Whatever the case, she and her fellow detainees were released the next morning.

She says, quote, “We didn’t ask any questions.  We just got back on that truck and got out of there and crossed the South African border a few hours later.”
