Rebel Wilson has revealed that she was once abducted with a gun.
The actress, who documents her year-round weight loss journey, appeared in an episode of the “Straight Talking” series for Sky One. The show takes celebrities and sends them in an interview with former Royal Marine Corps commander Ant Middleton.
During Wilson’s appearance, Middleton asked her about the moment in her life when she felt the most fear.
“There was a time in Africa where I was kidnapped,” the Pitch Perfect actress revealed (via Sky News).
REBEL WILSON REACHES HIS GOAL EARLY: “HE’S FOR HEALTH”
The 40-year-old star was traveling through rural Mozambique in Africa with a group of women when they were attacked by armed men. The actress said she was riding in a truck when another truck stopped next to them and the men poured in and started demanding.
“Yes, with the big weapons, they were like, ‘You have to get out of your truck,'” she explained.
The star was surprised, noting that she was “good in a crisis” and was ultimately the “team leader” of her group in dealing with the kidnappers.
“They sat us down. I said, ‘everyone tie your gun.’ I’m petrified on the night they might want to take one of the girls or something,” she said. “Fortunately, we weren’t hurt.”

Puzzling, Wilson and her friends were simply allowed to leave the kidnappers the next day, even though they had been under fire all night.
“The next day they came and said, ‘Oh, your truck is ready, now you can go – go, go,’ you know,” she said. “So we just didn’t ask any questions, we got on that truck and we just came back from there and then we crossed the South African border a few hours later.”
After the painful incident, the star believes that she understood why they were allowed to leave unharmed.

“I think maybe those guys used us to smuggle illegal things into the bottom of the truck,” she theorized.
