Rebel Wilson had a Pitch Perfect payday on Wednesday, when she was awarded $3.66 million by an Australian judge in a defamation case against a magazine publisher who printed articles that she said cost her film roles in Hollywood.

The 37-year-old star had sued Bauer Media — publisher of the Australian magazines Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, Nw and Ok — after they published reports in 2015 claiming she lied about her age, origins of her first name and her upbringing.

The articles cited a former classmate, who accused the Bridesmaids star of being seven years older than what the media had been reporting. »
