Rebel Wilson Names Actor Who Took Her Virginity Age 35

In her candid new memoir, “Rebel Rising,” Rebel Wilson unveils a deeply personal revelation: comedian and actor Mickey Gooch Jr. was her first sexual partner at the age of 35. The “Pitch Perfect” star reflects on her journey to embracing her sexuality and the factors that led to her decision to wait until later in life to experience intimacy.

Addressing Gooch directly in her book, Wilson writes, “Micks, I know this might be news to you if you are reading this, but yes I lost my virginity to you.” She later confirmed to the New York Times that Gooch was the first person to read her memoir, revealing the truth about their past relationship.

Wilson attributes her weight struggles as a contributing factor to her delayed sexual experiences, expressing that as a “big girl,” she struggled to feel sexually desirable. However, she also acknowledges that her mother’s battle with breast cancer served as a poignant reminder of life’s brevity, prompting her to embrace the present moment and pursue experiences of love and intimacy.

The actress reflects on her decision to finally take the leap into sexual intimacy, sharing that she put out into the universe her readiness to explore this aspect of her life. Her relationship with Gooch, which lasted a few months in 2015, provided her with the opportunity to feel comfortable and ready for this significant step.



Preparing for the momentous occasion, Wilson reveals that she watched porn and used a vibrator the night before her encounter with Gooch. Despite her initial nerves, she describes the experience as transformative, leading her to feel more connected to her body and empowered in her sexuality.

Although her relationship with Gooch ultimately ended, Wilson reflects on the positive aspects of losing her virginity at an older age, emphasizing that there is no one-size-fits-all timeline for sexual experiences. She encourages others not to feel pressured by societal expectations and to wait until they feel ready.

In February 2023, Wilson announced her engagement to jewelry designer Ramona Agruma, signaling a new chapter in her exploration of love and relationships. Reflecting on her journey, Wilson acknowledges the evolution of her sexuality and the importance of being open to new experiences, regardless of age or societal norms.
