Rebel Wilson Shares She Had Her Own Bridesmaids AccidentAlamy

Rebel Wilson admitted that she had her own Bridesmaids-esque mishap shortly after landing her breakthrough role in the 2011 film.

The 41-year-old was caught short while on a run and had to make some swift, evasive manoeuvres.


The story came about on a recent episode of Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne’s podcast, Life Uncut, which was recorded in Rebel’s Sydney home. Initially talking about how Rebel’s malaria-induced hallucinations spurred on her acting career, she truly spilled her guts when they reached the ‘Accidentally Unfiltered’ segment of the episode – in which guests reveal a cringeworthy story from their past.

For Rebel, it was a ‘disgusting’ incident that she’d never talked about publicly, until now.

While out and about for a bit of exercise, not long after bingeing a whole pizza and bottle of Pepsi, Rebel was forced to take a pit stop right in front of someone’s house.


Living in a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles in 2011, Rebel explained she’d been having a ‘down day’, which prompted her to chow down on a pizza and glug a bottle of Pepsi. However, she regretted her decision.

‘I was like, ‘Why did I go and eat all of that?’ So then I thought, ‘I’m going to fix this, I’m going to go out for a walk’,’ she said.

And so she did. However, not long after setting out on her route in the Hollywood Hills, near Griffith Observatory she had an ‘instant feeling’ in her stomach that she couldn’t ignore.

‘It hit me, it was all inside – and it just had to come out,’ she said as Laura and Britt started to laugh.

There was no way she was going to be able to return to her flat or make it to a public bathroom in time. This was also post-Bridesmaids, and so Rebel didn’t feel like taking the chance of being recognised by whoever’s door she might’ve ended up knocking on.

So instead she did what she thought was the next best thing: ‘I thought, ‘I’m going to have to go in someone’s lawn’. Then I saw this nice house… It had a nice front garden, nicely-mowed grass, and I just thought, ‘That’s the one’.’

Taking her chances in a bush, she was halfway through the deed when a car pulled up outside the house. She quickly came up with an impromptu story in case she got caught.


She recalled: ‘I’m still squatting on the front lawn, it’s so disgusting, so my mind goes, ‘If they come and saw something, I’m just going to scream that I’m pregnant’.’

Thankfully, the car drove off allowing Rebel to finish in peace.
