Rebel Wilson has dropped into Twitter yesterday to 1) Educate her fans about people unlawfully using her image to sell shit; 2) Remind everyone she already won her defamation case against Bauer Media; and most importantly, 3) Show off the gorgeeeee Prague filming location for her next film, Taika Waititi's Jojo Rabbit.
The 38-year-old Australian comic actress, best known for the Pitch Perfect movies and Bridesmaids, was not in the Court of Appeal in Melbourne to hear the three judges' decision.
While the original damages awarded to Wilson were split into $650,000 in general damages and $3.9 million to compensate for work she missed out on because of the damage to her reputation, today's decision removed the $3.9 million compensation entirely, saying Wilson never actually proved a link between the Bauer articles and her missing out on roles in films.
Speaking on behalf of Bauer Media, general counsel, Adrian Goss, said: "It was important for us to revisit the award of damages".
Going into the appeal, Wilson stood firm in her fight against Bauer Media. In both June and September, she tweeted that she would be endowing the money on charity, scholarships, and in support of the Australian film industry at large.
With defamation payouts capped in Australia at $350,000, University of Melbourne Law Professor Andrew Kenyon told 9news.com.au when news broke of the damages ruling this payout is "way higher" than Australia has ever seen.
In other post, she wrote: 'The Court of Appeal in Australia will be handing down their decision in the morning re my defamation case against As I've said before, I have already WON the case and this is UNCHALLENGED!'
It also reduced Wilson's non-economic losses by 50,000 Australian dollars to 600,000 Australian dollars.
Wilson speaks to the media outside court after her initial victory.
When Wilson won the case previous year, it was an Australian record for a case, much higher than the AUS$389,000 maximum previously set, by using her "global reach" as justification.
