Rebel Wilson gained notoriety when she portrayed the Craigslist roommate from hell in the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids, and since then, her star has only continued to rise with the musical comedy Pitch Perfect and new ABC series “Super Fun Night.”
And what better opportunity to visit a celeb’s roots than when that star is at their peak?
Just over a decade ago, Rebel was an awkward teen like 99.23% of us. Here she is at a red carpet in her hometown of Sydney, Australia.
Naturally, Rebel has a sense of humor about it all. “I come from the western suburbs of Sydney,” she said in Life & Style. “No one ever thought actors would come from there. Even my own family was like, ‘No one would want you on a show!’”
She’s also said that she considers it her mission to boost the esteem of girls everywhere. “[My] purpose is to inspire girls…who don't think they’re pretty and popular,” she said.
