REBEL Wilson didn't touch alcohol until her mid-twenties after growing up seeing alcohol destroy her grandma.
The Australian actress, 40, opened up about the devastation of seeing alcohol-induced dementia first hand.6Pitch Perfect actress Rebel Wilson, 40, revealed she didn't start drinking alcohol until her 20sCredit: Instagram
On Sky Original Straight Talking with Ant Middleton, which airs tomorrow on Sky One at 9pm, she said: "One of my grandmas was an alcoholic.She got alcoholic dementia, just purely from alcoholism, so she wouldn't have probably had the dementia if she didn't drink.
"Seeing that at a young age, really made me not be into drinking. I don't think I actually had like a glass of wine or something until I was 25."
Like normal dementia, alcoholic dementia causes someone to tell the same stories or ask the same questions over and over, with no recollection that the questions have just been asked and answered.
Rebel shot to fame in 2011 for her role in Bridesmaids and then won legions of fans as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect.6That was because she saw the effects alcohol-related dementia had on her grandmotherCredit: Handout 6Rebel spoke about seeing her grandmother deteriorate on the show, On Straight Talking with Ant MiddletonCredit: Sky UK Ltd
During the one-off episode, she also discussed how she has struggled to find love over the years.
In the trip to the Mexican desert, she revealed she'd spent 2019 accepting every date she was asked out on.
“I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out [in 2019]. Anybody who asked me out I had to say yes.
“It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just had to give lots of people a chance and then I learnt lots about myself."6The comedic actress has been on a year of transformationCredit: AP:Associated Press 6She hit her target weight of 75kg during her "year of health"Credit: Instagram 6Rebel is now loved up with billionaire Jacob BuschCredit: Instagram Most read in CelebrityExclusiveSHACKING UP!Jim Bob sells son Justin, 18, a mobile home for only $1 ahead of weddingBreakingGONE TOO SOONFreaks and Geeks actress Jessica Campbell dead at 38 after 'collapsing'hot mamaTeen Mom Kailyn Lowry shows off her toned tummy four months after giving birthExclusiveKARVE IT UPKim Kardashian's divorce lawyer vows: 'expect equal custody & 50/50 on homes'FIT FACTORSimon Cowell works out as he reveals toned abs in Barbados after breaking backON THE AIR TONIGHTReal Housewives Of Miami 'could RETURN with Phil Collins' ex in cast'

Inside Armie Hammer’s secret life fueled by alcohol, BDSM and infidelity
More On: armie hammer Armie Hammer follows Instagram hashtags for rope bondage and knife skills Armie Hammer’s dating history: His estranged wife, girlfriends and flings Armie Hammer’s alleged secret Instagram has lingerie-clad women, drug tests Bella Thorne defends Armie Hammer against ‘cannibal’ allegations
Hollywood star Armie Hammer loves to barbecue, friends say. His Instagram is full of photos of raw meat, grilled ribs, pigs’ heads and big knives. For one photo of a grill, he posted: “Have you ever seen anything sexier?”
But his hobby made shocking headlines this week when a recent ex-girlfriend revealed how the 34-year-old “Call Me By Your Name” actor fantasized about which of her body parts he’d like to roast and devour.
“He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” Courtney Vucekovich exclusively told Page Six.
The claims by Vucekovich, known for creating the “on-demand glam” app Flashd, came days after the revelation of Hammer’s messages about rape fantasies and cannibalism.
In one DM, shared by the anonymous Instagram account @HouseofEffie, Hammer allegedly told a partner he wished to “cut off one of your toes and keep it with me in my pocket so I always had a piece of you in my possession.”
In another, he allegedly described himself as “100 percent a cannibal.”
Hammer’s representative did not answer a request for comment.

They are both currently on the Cayman Islands, where Chambers has been living with their two young children since they split over the summer.
A family friend told The Post that Chambers, who filed for divorce in July, is “really in shock” and has “not processed any of this yet,” adding: “They went out to the Cayman Islands at the beginning of the pandemic in March as a family and Armie left in late June to go back to California.
“She’s basically been a single mom since then, Armie didn’t see the kids for five months. The kids are her number one priority, so on top of all the emotional stuff she has two kids to take to school and make sure they’re not affected.”
The friend added: “Elizabeth was aware of some infidelity, but she wanted to make the marriage work and thought that he did too.”
Several sources said that Hammer had been madly in love with Chambers. But a major Hollywood publicist told The Post how, once “Call Me By Your Name” boosted his fame, “women were texting him, chasing him — and when he would drink, that’s when he’d run around. Everyone thought he and Elizabeth decided to have an open marriage.”
A representative for Chambers had no comment.
“[These messages] are very shocking for her,” Chambers’ friend added. “He never did any of the weird s- -t with her.”
Another source who knows both Hammer and Chambers said: “My mind is blown. He always appeared so totally normal, he loves grilling, I mean — he was so excited about buying a new smoker and he would have friends over for barbecues and cocktails.see also
“None of this seems like the Armie that I know. He needs help. Something is terribly wrong, and I just wonder if it’s drugs.”
This week, the Daily Mail published video clips of Hammer declaring “s–t’s getting weird” after sniffing a white substance from someone’s hand and swigging from his beer can while behind the wheel of a car.
On Friday, the Daily Mail posted a video from what is alleged to be Hammer’s secret Instagram account. The post said that he had “THC and benzos” in his system but that the hallucinogenic drug DMT had not showed up in a drug test; he also showed what appeared to be a court mandate ordering him to undergo drug testing as a condition of seeing his children. In the background, a woman wearing lingerie while on her hands and knees in a bed was visible.
“Divorce is so fun. Not as fun as drugs. But what is,” the post read.
A movie insider who worked with Hammer on the set of the 2018 film “On the Basis of Sex,” told The Post that “He would have a water bottle of vodka in the green room before going on TV [interviews] but other than that he was a gentleman.”
A source who has worked with Hammer told The Post that Hammer does “not have a drug habit” but that he will drink heavily for weeks at a time. Asked about the messages, the source said: “Of course Armie is not a cannibal … although BDSM might be weird, it’s not illegal.”
Hammer, a 2018 Golden Globes nominee for Best Supporting Actor, has admitted he came close to “completely losing” his mind while with his family in the Caribbean, which went from a tropical paradise to “draconian lockdown” during the pandemic.A recent ex-girlfriend revealed how Armie Hammer fantasized about which of her body parts he’d like to roast and devour.Instagram
Hammer told British GQ in September that he was at his dad’s apartment with Chambers, their kids and his stepmother.
“We’d be looking out at the ocean, but couldn’t go in the ocean; looking at the beach, but couldn’t go on the beach. We couldn’t leave the apartment, couldn’t go in the pool, couldn’t do anything,” the actor said.
“It was a very complicated, intense situation, with big personalities all locked in a little tiny place … I’d never dealt with anything like that before in my life, so I didn’t have the tools,” Hammer said.
He added: “I think, to be quite frank, I came very close to completely losing my mind.”Armie Hammer is in the midst of a difficult divorce with Elizabeth Chambers.Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP
While in quarantine, Hammer and Chambers decided to split after 10 years of marriage. Her divorce filing cited irreconcilable differences, and the journalist and entrepreneur has asked the court to grant her primary physical custody of the children.
Back in LA, Hammer embarked on a string of romances. He was seen canoodling with 22-year-old model Paige Lorenze and bakery owner Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, the ex-wife of actor Josh Lucas. But in October, just a month after she was first spotted with Hammer, Henriquez posted a telling meme to Instagram: “How It Started” showed what appeared to be a paparazzi photo of her and Hammer on a lunch date; “How It’s Going” revealed that she had blocked the actor from her account.
Henriquez spoke out this week, saying she believes the shocking cannibal/rape messages “are real,” and later wrote: “’It takes an army to hide a predator.” She also posted a quote from Vucekovich’s Page Six interview: “He blows up [women’s] lives like that and walks away.”
A source close to Henriquez said she did not want to speak out any more, fearing for her safety and that of her children.
However, after Lorenze took to Twitter this week to post: “Anyone got a good therapist?” Henriquez replied: “Yeah girl, I’ll send you her number.”
Meanwhile, Vucekovich, who dated Hammer from June to August, couldn’t confirm whether the @HouseOfEffie screenshots were legitimate, but she said they were no surprise.
“He likes the idea of skin in his teeth,” she claimed. “He says, ‘I want to take a bite out of you.’ If I had a little cut on my hand, he’d like suck it or lick it. That’s about as weird as we got.”Armie Hammer’s Instagram is full of photos of raw meat, grilled ribs and pigs’ heads.Instagram
Hammer comes from extreme privilege. In 2009, he appeared in a Vanity Fair spread of “Fortune’s Children,” which features 38 heirs and heiresses — including Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner — heralded as “the next generation of some of the world’s greatest fortunes.”
His great-grandfather, Dr. Armand Hammer, was an oil tycoon who ran Occidental Petroleum. When he died in 1990, he was reportedly worth around $200 million.
The actor, the son of businessman Michael Armand Hammer and his wife Dru Ann Mobley, grew up in Dallas and then the Cayman Islands. “My dad saw the movie ‘The Firm’ and he thought it looked like paradise,” he has said of his father’s decision to move there.
Telling VF that he was taunted as a child with the nickname “Baking Soda Boy,” Hammer has explained that his name has nothing to do with the Arm and Hammer brand. His great-grandfather was actually named for the arm-and-hammer logo of the Socialist Labor Party. Years later, the oil tycoon used the insignia for the flag on his yacht.
‘Of course Armie is not a cannibal … although BDSM might be weird, it’s not illegal’
Before he began acting, Hammer told VF, “I tried college at UCLA. I gave it a fighting effort and I just couldn’t do it.” He reportedly got kicked out of high school for starting a fire and his “two semesters” of UCLA were actually two semesters of signing up for UCLA Extension classes and never showing up.
He started out in TV, landing guest spots on shows like “Arrested Development” and “Desperate Housewives” before his break: a recurring role on “Gossip Girl” in 2009. A year later, he impressed audiences with his dual turn as the Winklevoss twins in the movie “The Social Network.” That was followed by films like “The Lone Ranger” and “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” that were supposed to make Hammer a big star, only to flop.
His career seemed back on track with 2016’s “The Birth of a Nation” based on the story of Nat Turner, the enslaved man who led a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Va., in 1831.
But following major Oscar buzz, the film was overshadowed by news of a 1999 alleged rape that director and star Nate Parker was accused of having committed. (Parker was acquitted.)
In 2019, many expected Hammer would receive an Oscar nod for “Call Me By Your Name,” in which Hammer played a college student who has an affair with a teenage boy, played by Timothée Chalamet. The film itself was nominated, as was Chalamet. Some Hollywood insiders think Hammer hurt his own chances by getting political.
