An Evening with Rebel Wilson

From the scene-stealing star of Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids, get ready for an emotional rollercoaster with a refreshingly candid, funny, and inspiring conversation about her forthcoming book Rebel Rising and her unconventional journey to Hollywood success, and self-love. 

For decades, Rebel Wilson single-mindedly focused on her career, forgoing relationships in favour of making a name for herself. An Evening with Rebel Wilson will share the emotional and physical lessons she has learned, as well as her most embarrassing experiences. A malaria-induced Oscars hallucination? An all-style martial-arts fighting tournament? Junior handling at dog shows? And this was all before she moved to Hollywood!

Rebel will share stories from her proud bogan upbringing in Sydney to then making millions in the US as the “fat funny Aussie girl.” Despite her stratospheric success, she constantly questioned "Am I good enough?”, "Will I ever find love?" and "Will I ever change and become healthy?" Rebel speaks for the first time about the most personal and important moments in her life — from fertility issues, weight gain and loss to sexuality, overcoming shyness and dealing with rejection (and there's at least one story thrown in about Brad Pitt!). 

This intimate evening with Rebel will take us on a journey which shows us how to love ourselves, whilst making us laugh uncontrollably.

All tickets include a copy of Rebel Wilson’s Rebel Rising. Books will be distributed on the night.

Presented by Fane
