Fact of fiction: Did Rebel Wilson lie about everything?.

Actress Rebel Wilson has laughed off tabloid reports in her native Australia suggesting she has been lying about her name and age to further her Hollywood career.

As “Pitch Perfect 2” soared to the top of the box office over the weekend, earning a whopping $70 million debut and leaving “Max Max: Fury Road” in the dust, Australia’s Woman’s Day magazine was preparing to blow the lid off lies she allegedly fed the public. The “Pitch Perfect” star recently hit headlines after Woman’s Day editors printed an article alleging Wilson’s real last name is Bownds and stating her age as 35, instead of 29.

Business records filed with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission show that Wilson, who has previously said she was 29, was in fact born on March 2, 1980, making her 35 years old, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The article included a yearbook photo of a woman named Melanie, who bears striking similarities to Wilson, to prove she is older than she claims, and went on to dispute the comedienne’s story that she grew up in a “ghetto” in Sydney, insisting she had a “very normal, upper-middle class upbringing.” A source told the publication, “She was definitely not the class clown; none of us remember her being funny.

Here’s the laundry list of tall tales reportedly distributed by the actress since her days as a “Bridesmaid.” As of today, Wilson is 35, and definitely not 29. A source tells Us that the couple met through mutual friends. “They get along really well, they respect each other’s work,” the insider says. “She’s been too busy to date for awhile, they’ve been texting often and they’ve been spending some time together in L.A. and New York.” Indeed, earlier this week the twosome caught a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. “#RangerDanger,” the Bridesmaids star captioned a sweet black-and-white Instagram photo on Saturday, May 16. “Let’s go NY!” The Australian actress and her beau coordinated in Rangers outfits for the big match, and were spotted holding hands before heading back to their hotel. The Australian Electoral Roll lists her real name as Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, though she later changed her last name to Wilson, as has been previously reported. Just this month, Wilson blamed her busy schedule for not being able to main a stable love life. “You have to sacrifice relationships because you work, and now I travel all around the world,” she told Australia’s Elle magazine. “I’m constantly moving and constantly travelling and so it’s really hard to maintain a relationship in that kind of environment.” She has said that her parents gave all their children eccentric names; and indeed, records show that her brother is named Ryot, while her sisters are named Liberty (a.k.a.

While she was indeed raised by professional dog breeding parents, she didn’t exactly grow up “in the ghetto” like she told Ellen DeGeneres in a 2013 interview. This, too, has been confirmed: Wilson’s mother, Sue Bownds, is a fourth-generation breeder who has been judging dog shows for more than 30 years and has bred and exhibited many Best in Show winners. Following the controversy, Wilson took the awkward moment in stride, choosing to make a joke out of the ordeal tweeting: “OMG I’m actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly known as ‘CC Chalice’ ….thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome x…Okay but all jokes aside now…my real name is Fat Patricia x.”
