Opening up about  her life's horrified incident, the 40-year-old actress said she was 'very good' in the crisis.

She said: "There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique."

The Australian native went on to describe the scene in details, saying: “They took us to a house in the middle of nowhere. I felt like I was very good in the crisis. I was like a team leader. They sat us down, and I said, 'Everybody link arms,' because I was petrified in the night that they might want to take one of the girls or something.”
