Rebel Wilson says on-screen lesbian kiss ‘opened her heart’ to dating women

Hollywood star Rebel Wilson confessed that her on-screen kiss with co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg sparked a sexual awakening within her.

The Australian actress admitted that she felt nervous before filming the scene where she passionately kisses Charlotte in her latest movie The Almond and the Seahorse.

The movie is Rebel's first drama-based role, where she plays an archaeologist who is left to deal with her husband's traumatic brain injury, which eventually leads her to start having a scandalous affair.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Rebel said: "I'd never kissed a woman before so I was thinking, 'Oh God, how's that going to go?''

She went on to add that her kiss during filming led to her ultimately kissing a woman in her real life.

"I had kind of had a situation with a woman before, not a sexual relationship and we hadn't kissed or anything," she said. "But then the kiss with Charlotte came up. I didn't think it was that big of a deal or anything."

Rebel continued: "Then, weirdly through kissing her in my professional life I thought, well, maybe I should do that for real in my personal life and see how it goes, which I did".

She explained that if the on-screen kiss hadn't happened, she may not have "ever met" her first ever girlfriend Ramona Agurma who's she's currently in a relationship with.

"Having those experiences opened my heart up to it as a possibility. I'm grateful for those two experiences, it changed my love life completely. It's such an awesome thing" Rebel revealed.

The Almond and the Seahorse was filmed in 2021 and later that year she met Ramona.

Rebel announced her romance with her new girlfriend in an Instagram post of the couple cosying up to one another earlier this year.

It was later sadly revealed that Rebel had been rushed to go public with her relationship and her sexuality in order to get ahead of a story from the Sydney Morning Herald, a paper which had threatened to 'out' her.
