You think you know somebody! Rebel Wilson has painted quite a wild picture of her eccentric upbringing in the “ghetto” of Sydney, Australia with wacky dog training parents.
But according to Woman’s Day, a source has come forward saying that Rebel had a “very normal, upper-middle-class upbringing” AND that the Pitch Perfect actress isn’t 29 like she’s been claiming…she’s 36!
“She’s clearly got a vivid imagination. Maybe you have to tell stories to make it in Hollywood!” the source said.
“I studied with Rebel at Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta, Sydney,” the source continues. “But no-one knew of a Rebel Wilson. Her name is – or was – Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she’s 36 – she was born in 1979 and we left school in 1997.”
The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that according to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, Rebel’s real legal name is Rebel Melanie Elizabeth Wilson and she was born on March 2, 1980 making her 35 years old.
Fact checking aside, Rebel doesn’t seem to care about what people think of her real age. Just check out her recent tweets!
