Powerful reason Rebel Wilson has revealed she had sex for the first time aged 35

Rebel Wilson‘s memoir has already made a splash, and it’s not set to hit shelves until next week at the earliest.

And now the Australian actress has given fans a further glimpse into what they can expect from her tell-all – aside from alleged claims about Sacha Baron Cohen, which he denied through a representative – for a very powerful reason.

In an interview with People, the 44-year-old Pitch Perfect star said she’s written about the fact she had sex for the first time at age 35 in the hopes it will send a “positive message” to “late bloomers”.

“People can wait till they’re ready or wait till they’re a bit more mature,” Wilson told the outlet.

“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.”

Wilson – who is now engaged to Ramona Agruma and welcomed baby daughter Royce Lillian in 2022 via a surrogate – said that as a teenager, she avoided the topic as much as she could because she felt “embarrassed”.

She said she once told her best friend, “Oh, yeah, I just did it to just get it over with when I was like 23”, or she would leave the room when the subject would come up to “avoid the questions”.

Wilson also opened up about how she believes that if she had been born 20 years later, her experience with exploring her sexuality would have been ”very different”.

“I probably would’ve explored my sexuality more. I just knew I was attracted to men, and that was the normal thing,” Wilson said.

The Bridesmaids star said it was after her father died around 2013 that she started “opening [herself] up more” to marriage, and then, years later, she started having feelings for women.

Wilson and Agruma, who went public with their relationship in June 2022, met in late 2021.

Rebel Rising is scheduled for release in Australia on April 3, but there are reports it has been delayed due to the Baron Cohen controversy.
