Rebel Wilson hits back over claims she lied about age, 'Pitch Perfect' Star Actually 36?

Rebel Wilson Laughs Off Rumours She Lied About Her Name And Age.

Rebel Wilson has been forced to deny rumours she’s lying about her real name and age, after a totally trustworthy and not-at-all dodgy anonymous source told Woman’s Day about her “real background.”

“I studied with Rebel at Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta, Sydney. 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,” she source said.

It seems that Rebel has caught wind of the reports and come clean about her name on Twitter. Well, maybe not, but she did see the funny side of it.

She hilariously wrote: “OMG I’m actually a 100 year old mermaid formally 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”.

The source added that Rebel had a “very normal, upper-middle-class upbringing”, and that Rebel wasn’t even funny at school… OUCH!
