She was a former Rotary International Youth Ambassador for Australia.
Why she pursued an acting career? Blame it on malaria. She contracted malaria after spending a year in South Africa. She Rebel Wilson claims that her hallucinations about winning an Oscar convinced her to pursue an acting career. But her background has always been full of mystery and confusion.
