"It was in rural Mozambique", the 40-year-old "Pitch Perfect" star said. It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening.
She said: "There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped".
"We were on this cattle truck and these men came on another truck with a lot of guns".
Rebel Wilson broke the silence on terrifying incident for the first time in discussion with hardman Ant Middleton, which will air tonight (Tuesday). "[They pulled up beside us] with the big guns and they were like, 'Yeah, you've got to get off your truck'".
The Australian native went on to describe the scene in details, saying: "They took us to a house in the middle of nowhere".
Thankfully, Rebel and her companions were released unscathed and had their truck returned to them the following morning, and, while they "didn't ask questions" she suspects foul play.
Wilson then said her survival instincts kicked in and she wanted to protect the other women who were also held captive.
The star surprised herself, noting that she was "good in a crisis" and ended up being her group's "team leader" in dealing with the kidnappers. I said, 'Everybody link arms, ' I'm petrified in the night they might want to take one of the girls or something.
In the episode, which airs in the United Kingdom later this week, Wilson said they were all released the following morning, uninjured.
"They came and said, 'Oh, your truck is ready now you can go - go, go, ' you know".
Wilson and Middleton, a Royal Marines commando, shot the episode during a three-day period in Mexico.
Rebel and her party crossed the border into South Africa a "few hours" after their frightful experience was over. "Now long now x", Middleton commented on the pic.
