Aca-Awkward! Turns Out Rebel Wilson WAS Lying About Her Age & Name!

Rebel Wilson's real age has been revealed!

Aca-believe it!

Rebel Wilson has been called into question for lying about her age and name.

When the Australian tabloid Women’s Day published an article speculating that she wasn’t actually 29, like she had said, the Pitch Perfect star took to Twitter to shut them down.

Now, new documents from the Australian Securities and Investment Commission reveal Rebel’s actually birthday is March 2, 1980. This means the actress is 35 — six years older than she had admitted in the past.

Her on-screen alter ego may be able to wrestle dingos and crocodiles simultaneously, but it looks like this is a battle Rebel can’t quite conquer.

In fact, her IMDB page has been updated to include her real birthday.

The media has also been speculating the Australian actresses birth name, as well.

Last year, she told The Australian Women’s Weekly that Rebel was her real name, and that she went by her two middle names — Melanie and Elizabeth — when she was growing up to avoid grade school bullies.

However, the Australian Electoral Roll reveals her name to be Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, glaringly missing the quirky moniker we associate with her.

It’ll be interesting to see what Melanie Rebel has to say about all this.
