Rebel with a cause hits a per­fect pitch

The Times (South Africa) - - The Things You Need To Know Today -

Hol­ly­wood star Rebel Wilson won $3.6-mil­lion in dam­ages from a pub­lisher — Aus­tralia’s largest-ever pay­out for defama­tion.

The Pitch Per­fect star sued Bauer Me­dia over ar­ti­cles that said she lied about her age and back­ground to fur­ther her act­ing ca­reer.

The judge slammed Bauer’s de­fence that the ar­ti­cles were not to be taken se­ri­ously. Wilson said she would do­nate the pay­out to char­ity and the Aus­tralian film in­dus­try.
