Pitch Perfect star, Rebel Wilson, was just caught in some blatant lies regarding her real name, her upbringing and her real age! Hint, she didn’t grow up in the ghetto, far from it, and she’s not really 29! She’s pushing 40!

The Australian actress’s real name is not Rebel Wilson, it’s Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she didn’t grow up under difficult circumstances like she’s been leading her fans to believe. And she’s not 29, she’s 35. A former classmate spilled the dirt to Woman’s Day.

“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 from a mozzie in Mozambique where, from her ICU bed, she envisioned herself winning an Oscar and rapping her acceptance speech.” h/t inquisitr

The interview goes on to say that much of this is bogus. And what’s being revealed goes beyond her real age.

“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.”

Australian media bit onto the juicy details of Wilson’s cover up to the point of overshadowing her appearance in Pitch Perfect 2 as it plays in movie theaters.
