Rebel Wilson's Real Age of 35 Uncovered by Gossip Detectives

"Pitch Perfect" star Rebel Wilson's real age is 35, not 29, according to records obtained by the Sydney Morning Herald in response to a Woman's Day article that charged the actress was 36 and her real name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds.

The Australian actress, who co-stars in the current hit movie "Pitch Perfect 2" and whose profile has increased in Hollywood over the past several years, is actually six years older than what appears on many entertainment profiles, noted the Morning Herald.

The newspaper said Wilson's birth date is March 2, 1980, according to business records filed with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, making her 35. The Herald noted that it already reported that the actress had previously changed her surname from Bownds to Wilson.

The commission's documents list the actress name as Rebel Melanie Elizabeth Wilson, reported the Herald.

Monday's Woman's Day article ripped the actress, accusing her about lying about her age, name and background while growing up in Australia, basing it on an anonymous source.

"According to Rebel Wilson, she's 29, was raised by dog-training 'bogan' parents in the 'ghetto' of Sydney, spent a year in Zimbabwe, climbed into a cage with a leopard, got caught in a shoot-out and then struck down by a severe strain of Malaria …," wrote the Woman's Day article, titled "Will the real Rebel Wilson please stand up."

"But far from the outlandish Hollywood movie-like life she's portrayed to the public, an old classmate says Rebel had a 'very normal, upper-middle-class upbringing' and has added a touch of 'fantasy' to the life she lead before becoming a household name," the article said.

The magazine portrayed her as a straight-A student at Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta and lived a much more conventional life than the actress has said in the past.

"She's clearly got a vivid imagination," a Woman's Day source told the publication. "Maybe you have to tell stories to make it in Hollywood."

Wilson tried to laugh off the controversy on Twitter Monday.
