Last year Rebel Wilson was busted big time lying about her age .
Someone she attended school with came forward last year and told Woman’s Day the actress was actually 36 years old and in school her name was Melanie Bownds.
She responded this tweet:
Then stayed mum on the whole situation even after the evidence mounted and it was clear she lied.
She is finally speaking tonight, it has been revealed she addresses the issue with Julia Zemiro’s on her show Home Delivery.
“…The reality is, when you work in America, you have to show your passport and your visa for every single job,” she said. “So it’s not like you can hide how old you are. So for the press to do a story that I was deliberately, you know, lying or whatever … No, I was just being a lady and not telling my age when I moved to America. And that’s not really a crime. Also, most actresses do that.”
I was so disappointed reading that cop out …………….
I was just being a lady and not telling my age.
That’s exactly why you should tell your age!
I believe the word you are looking for isn’t ladylike it’s deceptive because that’s what you were being.
You also explain that you booked the jobs with them knowing full well what age you were so it’s not like you were doing it to stay in a job and even if you were maybe you should have taken a stronger stance in that situation.
I refuse to believe your success and talent all comes down to two digits.
For a girl called Rebel you sure know how to conform when you need to.
I’m so disappointed because I am such a fan you were a burst of fresh air amongst the Hollywood standard and you refused to be body shamed so why did you become so ashamed of your age something you have no control over.
Your story to me is actually a lot more interesting with your real age included because it gives hope to those out there who get to a certain age and think they are too old to fur fill their dreams.
So stop with the excuse all the actresses are doing it so there is nothing wrong because if you are not going to be a solution to ageism in Hollywood at the least I would hope you wouldn’t be a part of the problem like you have become.
