The Australian actress explained that the industry's harsh judgment towards women drove the decision, saying:
"Being an actress it affects women more than men in terms of ageism and sexism so to be called out by the press on something most sensible business-minded people would have done in my position, it was a bit hurtful."
That makes sense, because the truth could have actually hurt the funny lady's career. The Pitch Perfect star continued:
"When you're an actor, you have what's called a playing range; to me, it's not really beneficial having your age written anyway."
It's unfortunate that ladies of a certain age are given less opportunities than their younger colleagues, so we understand why Rebel chose to hide the truth.
It's so nice to see celebrities honoring something important like Veterans Day!
