When you’re a celebrity you are constantly under the microscope of the media and the public but that hasn’t stopped one Australian outlet from reporting that beloved actress Rebel Wilson has been lying to us all this time.

The Australian magazine Woman’s Day claimed that the Pitch Perfect 2 star not only lied about her background but also about her age and  name citing a year book photo that shows Rebel as a girl named Melanie Bownds, who is actually now 36, not 29 as Wilson says she is.

Sources told the magazine that not only was her name Melanie Bownds she didn’t have the “ghetto” upbringing she claims to have had. “She was definitely not the class clown; none of us remember her being funny. While Rebel painst a picture of a gybsy upbringing, her family home was certainly not in any ‘ghetto.'”

As to be expected the hilarious star responded in the best way possible, laughing the matter off, just as Fat Amy would, writing on her Twitter account, “OMG I’m actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly knowns as “CC Chalice”… thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome x.”

She followed that up with a classic Pitch Perfect joke, “Okay but all jokes aside now.. my real name is Fat Patricia x.”

What we do know is that Wilson can handle fat-shaming, age-shaming and whatever the press throws at her and no matter her age she will also be the singing college student Fat Amy.
