WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Rebel Wilson breaks her silence after landmark defamation case

We know she’s funny, but there is so much more to Australian actress Rebel Wilson than the characters she plays.

In a few weeks’ time, Rebel makes a triumphant return to the big screen with the latest installment of her hit movie franchise, Pitch Perfect.

But it’s been a challenging few years for Rebel, whose career was dealt a savage blow just as it was taking off after a spiteful campaign by some of Australia’s biggest women’s magazines.

With movie offers drying up, Rebel took the tabloids to court and won a multi-million-dollar defamation suit.

Although the vicious court battle was settled in her favour, Rebel wants to speak for the first time about how devastating it was. And as Sunday Night’s Melissa Doyle discovers on set with Rebel in Spain, her fight is far from over.
