Nothing can slow Rebecca Gibney. Not on TV, where she’s on the run again in Wanted and especially not in real life where the 53-year-old actress/producer/creator is hitting her stride.
“I love getting older. I’m more confident in my 50s than I have ever been,” Gibney says emphatically.
“I’m more inclined to take risks. I’m more inclined to not really care what other people think. I know I’m a good person.”
A good person – who has done some bad things. Part of Gibney’s winning appeal is she’s very relatable. The Gold Logie winner is the first to admit she’s as flawed as the next person
“Have I done bad things in my life? Like we all have? Yes,” she tells WHO. “As the saying [from the Bible] goes, ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’ It’s not my place to judge anybody, therefore I don’t want anyone to judge me.”
But they do.
Gibney acknowledges there are online trolls and others out there who want to criticise her. “Good luck to them, but I’m not going to take anything they say on board,” she says. “It’s not my business what you think of me. It’s my business what I think of me.”
