Rebel Wilson opens up on not losing her virginity until her mid-thirties

Rebel Wilson has opened up about losing her virginity when she was 35 years old.

The Pitch Perfect star is opening up about her life in her new memoir Rebel Rising – which comes out on April 2.

The book promises to detail Wilson’s ‘unconventional journey to Hollywood success and self-celebration’ – and it seems no stone is left unturned as the actor gives a ‘candid’ look into the most personal aspects of her life.

And in an exclusive interview with People, she opened up about her experience losing her virginity in her mid-thirties.

Wilson told the outlet that you shouldn’t ‘feel pressure’ to have sex and can wait until you feel ready.

She said: “Not everybody has to lose their virginity as a teenager. People can wait till they’re ready or wait till they’re a bit more mature.

“And I think that could be a positive message. You obviously don’t have to wait until you’re in your thirties like me, but you shouldn’t feel pressure as a young person.”

But the subject has been difficult for Wilson in the past, with the star saying that she had previously struggled with how long she had waited.

Wilson said that she would often try to avoid conversations about the topic so she wouldn’t have to reveal how old she was when she lost her virginity.

She said: “There was one vague time, I think I told my best friend, ‘Oh, yeah, I just did it to just get it over with when I was like 23’, Just to really avoid the questions.

“Normally I would just leave the room when the conversation was happening.

“And then the people that said ‘oh, at 24, it’s so late’, and then I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Oh my God, my number’s 35. What the hell? I’m going to look like the biggest loser’.”

Calling herself a ‘late-bloomer’ Wilson reflected that things might have been different had she been born in a different time.

Wilson is now engaged to designer Ramona Agruma, who she announced she was dating back in 2022, and had her first child via a surrogate in November of that year.

And Wilson says that if she had been born ’20 years later’, she would have explored her sexuality more.

“I just knew I was attracted to men, and that was the normal thing.” she said.

“And so when I started opening myself up probably more after my father’s death and realizing, oh, even though I’d seen marriage as a terrible thing and waste of time, I started opening myself up to that.

“And then only years later, meeting women and having feelings for a woman, and that, I just think it’s a sign of where society kind of was.”

In recent weeks, Wilson revealed that her upcoming memoir would contain a chapter about an alleged ‘a**hole’ the Bridesmaid star had worked with.

She later revealed the person in question to be actor and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

Wilson has claimed that Baron Cohen, who she worked with on The Brothers Grimsby, had repeatedly asked her to ‘go naked in a future scene’ and to ‘stick her finger up his ass’.

Baron Cohen has since responded to the allegations, with his spokesperson telling The Hollywood Reporter: “While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby.”

Rebel’s book is available to pre-order on Amazon now.
