Actress Rebel Wilson has explained the reason why she chose to shave six years off her actual age.
The 35-year-old 'Pitch Perfect' actress originally told people she was 29, until a former high schoolmate told the Australian 'Woman's Day' magazine Rebel was lying about her age.
Originally refusing to address the rumours in May, the actress now explains it was a "business" decision to not reveal her real age, because of ageism and sexism in Hollywood.
"When you're an actor, you have what's called a playing range; to me, it's not really beneficial having your age written anyway."
No matter her age, Rebel Wilson is still a funny woman, and will star in a confirmed Pitch Perfect 3, set to be released in 2017.
