Rebel Wilson has revealed she once caused her old high school teacher to cry and locked her in a cupboard in an act of revenge, despite being deputy head girl.
The Bridesmaids actress confessed her ‘cheeky’ act of revenge on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she insisted her revenge prank was on a ‘mean teacher’ and that none of her classmates ‘ratted her out’.
She admitted: ‘In the boarding house, I would mastermind the escapes because there was a boy’s school next door, and we had bars on our windows, it was that type of good Christian school.
‘I would work out all the passcodes for the alarms and be like “Let’s go”, and then one time, I locked a teacher in a cupboard for four hours.
‘She was a mean teacher and it was really good revenge.’
Revealing how she managed to do it, the 42-year-old said: ‘We said there is something in the cupboard, miss, and then we pushed her in and locked her.’
She did add while laughing that she felt ‘a bit bad now’, adding that her teacher had ‘cried’ about it.
The star also shared that she went under a different name at her all-girls Christian school 25 years ago, claiming ‘Rebel’ wouldn’t be ‘appropriate’, so she instead opted for her middle name, Melanie.
Not only was she deputy head girl, ‘kind of like the second most popular girl’, as she called it, but she was also an ‘overachiever’, graduating from law school and captaining various sports.
‘But we lost every game that I was captain,’ Rebel added about her time as captain of her high school’s basketball team.
She had been talking about her time at high school ahead of her new Netflix film Senior Year, which also stars Justin Hartley.
Rebel plays Stephanie, a cheerleading student who falls off the pyramid and into a coma for 20 years, before awaking as a 37-year-old woman and returning back to high school to try to assume her role.
