Rebel Wilson leaving court on 19 May
The defamation trial for "Australian success story" and Hollywood movie star Rebel Wilson will hear from a number of witnesses including her mother and siblings, her Australian and U.S. agents, and an old school friend from her childhood in Sydney.
Hollywood actor Rebel Wilson lost movie roles because she was portrayed as a liar in a series of magazine articles, an Australian court has heard.
Dr Collins told the jury about Wilson's working-class Sydney childhood and the hardships she'd faced in making it in Hollywood, years after she'd had a dream about winning an Oscar while ill with malaria.
In the witness box, Wilson tearfully recounted the "nasty" articles that she claims damaged her career after a journalist employed by the publisher had been contacted by one of Wilson's former schoolmates.
The actress said she was nicknamed Rebel and in 2002 made a decision to legally change her name to Rebel Elizabeth Melanie Wilson, taking her mother's maiden name after her parents separated.
He said Wilson thought "she'd never been hit with such nastiness" when Bauer Media published "grubby articles" that defamed her. Wilson said "she can't wait to start giving evidence".
"It's kind of like they're getting the knife and just shoving it further into me", she said.
