Bridesmaids actress Rebel Wilson has said she struggled financially when she first moved to Hollywood.

The Australian star said that all she could afford to eat was ''corn chips and guacamole'' when she first moved to Hollywood after she sold all her belongings to make the big move in 2010.

Speaking to Australian radio station 2Day FM to promote her film The Hustle, she said: ''When I first moved to the States, I had to sell everything that I owned: my car, my computer, my apartment, everything. And I came with one suitcase, a doona [duvet] and a pillow.

''And I actually lived on... well I paid for a furnished apartment so I had somewhere to stay, but I lived on $60 a week, which is not much.

''I'd go to this supermarket called Trader Joe's and get corn chips and stuff and I was surviving on corn chips and guacamole.''

Discussing the funny roles she normally plays, the actress revealed that she is ''quite sensible'' and ''conservative'' in real life.

"I actually don't think I'm very funny in real life, but, of course, it's a part of me. If I acted that way in public, I would be a lunatic,'' she said.

The Hustle is in cinemas on Friday, 10 May.
