Rebel Wilson (born 03.02.1986)
Rebel Wilson is an Australian actress and comedian.
Childhood: Rebel Wilson was born in Sydney, Australia. Her parents were dog handlers. In high school, she particularly enjoyed mathematics which she originally considered as a career. She attended the University of New South Wales, studying Law and Arts. She was once a Rotary International Youth Ambassador for Australia and, while based in South Africa for a year, contracted malaria which gave her hallucinations which inspired her to become an actress. She studied at the Australian Theatre for Young People and moved to New York after landing the ATYP International scholarship funded by Nicole Kidman. In New York, she trained with The Second City.
Comedy and acting career: Rebel Wilson first garnered attention with stage musical 'The Westie Monologues' which she followed up with 'Spunks and Confessions of an Exchange Student'. In Australia, she starred in the comedy shows 'Pizza' and 'The Wedge'. She has appeared in the films 'Fat Pizza' and 'Ghost Rider'. In 2008, she created the musical comedy series 'Bogan Pride' as well as starring in 'Monster House'. In 2009, she had an award-winning role in the film 'Bargain'. She has also featured on the comedy shows 'Thank God You're Here' and 'Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation' as well as performing stand up on 'The Breast Darn Show In Town'. In the States, she landed a role in Judd Apatow's 'Bridesmaids' opposite Matt Lucas. She later appeared in sitcoms 'Rules of Engagement' and 'Workaholics'. In 2010, she co-hosted the ARIA Music Awards and teamed with Lucas yet again in a performance at the Variety's Power of Comedy event. In 2011, she appeared in 'A Few Best Men' alongside Olivia Newton-John, Kevin Bishop and Kris Marshall. 2012 saw her in 'Small Apartments' again with Matt Lucas as well as Billy Crystal, Juno Temple and James Marsden. She also appeared in comedy music film 'Pitch Perfect' with Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow and Ester Dean and won the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance. She voiced the character of Raz in 2012's 'Ice Age: Continental Drift'.
Personal life: Rebel Wilson was a spokeswoman for nutrition company Jenny Craig, and while she lost 10 kilograms with them, she was banned from further weight loss while working on 'Pitch Perfect'. She lives with her frequent co-star Matt Lucas in West Hollywood.
Wilson had applied for Bauer Media, who were found to have defamed her in a 2017 lawsuit, to pay all but $100k of her $1.4 million legal costs.
Rebel Wilson has failed in her attempt to have $1.3 million of her $1.4 million legal costs paid for by Bauer Media following her victory in a defamation lawsuit against the company.
Back in September 2017, the Pitch Perfect actress prevailed in a four-week trial in which her lawyers proved to a jury that Australian media group Bauer has defamed Wilson by branding her a “serial liar”, alleging that she fabricated her age, name and childhood in order to get ahead in Hollywood.
She was awarded the biggest defamation payout in Australian legal history, with an award of $4.5 million including $650k in general and aggravated damages, but the matter of costs in the matter remained a sticking point.

Six big Australian media groups had attempted to join Bauer Media's appeal against the A$4.5 million award to Rebel Wilson.
Rebel Wilson has accused Australian media firms of “colluding” with a magazine publisher in a collective bid to overturn the record payout for defamation that she recently won.
The 38 year old Pitch Perfect star was awarded a payout of $4.5 million Australian dollars back in September 2017, when she won a defamation lawsuit she had brought against Bauer Media, after articles they had published portraying Wilson as a habitual liar. Bauer Media has appealed against the fine, the biggest ever handed down in Australia.
However, a bid by six other Australian media groups to join Bauer’s appeal was rejected on Thursday (March 22nd) by the Supreme Court of Victoria.

She has a trick to going from Australian to American.
Most non-Americans don't find it too difficult to imitate an American accent, but for Rebel Wilson, there's a very easy trick to doing it - and that's pretty much just doing the opposite of what she does as an Australian. She revealed the secret on 'The Tonight Show' this week.

The 37-year-old comedienne opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how she has managed to master the American accent, despite the fact that she gets to maintain her charming Sydney twang in her new movie 'Pitch Perfect 3'.

Rebel Wilson at the LA film premiere of 'Pitch Perfect 3' held at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The film comes two years after the first sequel and has been directed by Trish Sie - Los Angeles, California, United States - Wednesday 13th December 2017
The actress is thrilled to have won the case after it left her reputation in tatters.
It's a victory for Rebel Wilson as she is awarded millions in a defamation lawsuit against Australian magazine company Bauer Media, who painted her as an actress who lies about her age and subsequently damaged her career prospects. It's thought to be the largest payout of its kind in history.
Rebel Wilson shooting 'Isn't It Romantic'
The 37-year-old 'Pitch Perfect' star walked away from court with $4.5 million (£2.7 million) today (September 13th 2017) in damages after suing Bauer Media for defamation over articles they alloweed to be published accusing her of lying about her age to further her career.
It has been a few years since the Barden Bellas graduated from college, and while they have largely managed to stay in touch, they have not performed together at musical World Championships for a very long time. Needless to say, with their various career ventures not going as well as they had hoped and the media still keeping a close eye on them and willing them to fail, they are missing their beloved a cappella sing-a-longs a lot right now.
Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) has quit her job out of boredom, Flo Fuentes (Chrissie Fit) is serving on a city juice stall, Chloe Beale (Brittany Snow) is struggling to get into vet school and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is now a not so popular impersonator called Fat Amy Winehouse. But maybe they can give their musical passions a boost with a new kind of show...
Aubrey Posen (Anna Camp) has an idea of trying to obtain an invite to perform at a competition show in Europe set up by the United Service Organizations (USO) in support of the US Army soldiers. It's not like they have anything else to do at the moment so the group are all for it. However, armed only with their voices, they have quite the competition as many of their rivals are bands with actual instruments.

Wilson made the revelation in an interview with Marie Claire UK, for whom she is the July cover star.
Rebel Wilson has revealed why she has so far refused to get involved with nude scenes in her movies, saying that it’s because she’s mainly starred in comedies throughout her career and that the genre tends to treat the issue with less sensitivity.
Speaking in the July edition of Marie Claire, the 36 year old Australian star said that she was recently asked to take her clothes off for a scene is Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy Grimsby (known as The Brothers Grimsby in the U.S.) but that she refused.

Rebel Wilson has taken the world by storm after arriving in America five years ago.
Since then, her career has included Bridesmaids, two Pitch Perfect hits, the last Night at the Museum romp and now the rom-com How to Be Single.
"I think I came to Hollywood at the exact right time," she says, "because my first job was Bridesmaids. I auditioned for Melissa McCarthy's role and didn't get it, but they liked me so much they added me into the film. And then that movie was just a massive hit the following year. And that spawned all these amazing female comedies, including Pitch Perfect. In these female ensembles the women can be outrageous and bawdy. I think it's becoming the norm. Now they're really encouraging us to do more R-rated, super-edgy, honest kind of material."
