Rebel Wilson Reportedly Lied About Her Age (And Her Real Name!)

  • Rebel Wilson hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but the tabloid rumors appear to be true: reportedly, she is actually 35 despite previously telling the public that she was 29. It was also allegedly discovered that her real name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, which she also lied about. What’s odd is that records show that her siblings do have odd names like she’s always insisted, and Melanie/Rebel is the only kid in her family with a “traditional” name. Wilson has said in the past that she grew up the child of professional dog breeders in “the ghetto,” and while records show that her parents were in fact dog breeders, she went to a cushy private high school and lived in a well-off neighborhood.
