But this weekend the Aussie actress treated her fans to a rare pic of her Sydney-based family members.
The happy snap shared on Instagram featured her mother, Sue Bownds, and her sisters, Annarchi and Liberty. Wilson also has a brother, Ryot, who was not included in the photo.
“The Wilson sisters,” the Pitch Perfect star captioned the image, which is presumably a throwback given Wilson is currently filming projects in the US.
Wilson — who has a double degree in Law and Arts from the University of New South Wales — may be the big star of the family now, but growing up she said she was the shy one. It wasn’t until her mother forced her to attend drama classes in her native Sydney that she started to come out of her shell, but even that was initially a struggle.
“I was like the really shy academic child, who was very, very, shy,” Wilson recalled on The Producers Guide podcast in 2018. “At one point my mum got so sick of it because I think she wanted me to be popular and have friends and stuff. I would not go. She physically dragged me in there. It was so embarrassing I was saying, I don’t want to go, I don’t want to go.”
But after kicking and screaming from the car, Wilson would settle into her classes, faking an American accent as a coping mechanism.
“For some weird reason I get in there and there’s other kids in there, so I put on an American accent, because I was so shy, I couldn’t possibly interact with these people.”
These days, Wilson is one of Hollywood’s beloved comedians who has starred in hit comedies such as What to Expect When You’re Expecting, How to Be Single and Isn’t It Romantic.
