Rebel Wilson was born on March 2, 1980, in Sydney, Australia. She was a shy child and her parents forced her into acting classes to overcome her shyness. She grew up in a humorous family which naturally led her to perform comedy.
Rebel was already an established comedian in her native Australia before moving to Hollywood in 2011. She soon became a household name from her many memorable scene-stealing roles in Bridesmaids, Bachelorette, and as an actress/producer in the upcoming 2019 movie, Isn’t It Romantic.
