Early Life of Rebel Wilson:
Melanie Elizabeth Bownds was born on March 2, 1980, in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Her mother, who has worked as a professional dog trainer, originally planned to study mathematics but instead concentrated on Law and Arts at the University of New South Wales.
At some time, she adopted the name Rebel, a practice shared by at least two of her siblings, a sister known as “Annarchi” and a brother known as “Ryot” (Ryot appeared with the third Wilson sister Liberty on the first season of the reality TV show The Amazing Race). She got an international study scholarship from the Australian Theater for Young People and traveled to the United States to train with Second City Improv.
The Westie Monologues, a touring musical that she also wrote and produced, brought her a lot of attention in Australia. Spunks and Confessions of an Exchange Student, both highly lauded, were her next two hits on the road.
In the wake of her parts in Pizza and the Wedge and Fat Pizza, a feature film based on the program, she gained a new level of recognition in her own country. As a result of her work in films like 2007’s Ghost Rider, based on the Marvel Comics character and starring Nicolas Cage, she was able to earn popularity as an actress and eventually relocate to Los Angeles in 2011.
Wilson returned to the big screen for a second time after the success of Bridesmaids, appearing in guest parts on shows like Rules of Engagement and Workaholics. Isn’t It Romantic and The Hustle, a recreation of the Steve Martin classic in which she co-starred with Anne Hathaway, are just two of her recent big-screen comedy. During the same period of time,
The controversial big-screen version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Cats and Taika Waititi’s “anti-hate comedy” Jojo Rabbit, both with Nazi themes, both featured Wilson. Commercially, both were huge successes. Along with her roles in the Pitch Perfect movies and on Celebrity IOU and LOL: Last One Laughing, Wilson will host the Australian dog grooming competition series Pooch Perfect in 2020.
Personal Life of Rebel Wilson:
A plus-size T-shirt line based on her The Wedge character “Fat Mandi” was released in 2013. Rebel Wilson x Angels, Wilson’s plus-size clothing line, was established in 2017 after a partnership with Torrid.
During this time, Wilson and her Bridesmaids co-star Matt Lucas lived together in West Hollywood. Wilson expressed her support for stronger American gun restrictions in July 2015, after the Lafayette shooting “I don’t want to go political, but America, you really need to adopt the gun laws of Australia. Australia hasn’t had a mass shooting since they changed their firearms rules. There appears to be a shooting every week in the United States. Everyone’s safety is important to me, but it’s particularly so for those who are performing one of my favorite hobbies: going to the movies for a good time.”
At the end of 2014, Wilson had spent $3.75 million on a harbourside mansion in Sydney. Renovations of $900,000 were made to a 1900s freestanding Victorian mansion. It was Wilson’s decision to invest in a historic home in Balmain that had been converted into an apartment. It took three years to create this New York-inspired terrace house. In 2015, Wilson paid $1.88 million for a two-bedroom unit on the plan.
