Rebel Wilson on Thursday won a defamation trial in the Australian Supreme Court against magazine publisher Bauer Media, publisher of Australian magazines Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, NW and OK. In various articles in 2015, Bauer said Wilson lied about her age and about being named Rebel at birth, among other claims. The jury found that Bauer failed to prove that the articles were substantially true. Justice John Dixon will decide later how much money to award the actress, 37. “The reason I’m here is not for damages, it’s to clear my name,” Wilson said.
