How to Be Single

Sydney
Morning Herald, People magazine,[69] the Chicago Tribune[70] and The Huffington Post.[71] Most notably, Wilson's true birth date was confirmed through business records filed with the ASIC, which were obtained by The Sydney
Sydney
Morning Herald.[72] On 16 May 2016, Wilson said print and online articles in Woman's Day, the Australian Women's Weekly, NW and OK! magazines made her out to be a serial liar. According to a defamation writ filed in the Supreme Court of Victoria, Wilson said her reputation and credit had suffered and she had been humiliated and embarrassed. She also sued for special damages, claiming she missed out on roles and other ones were terminated because of the articles.[73] Wilson was represented by Matthew Collins QC. On 15 June 2017, a six-person jury ruled in Wilson's favour, finding that publisher Bauer Media Group
Bauer Media Group
had indeed wrongly painted the actress as a serial liar, and that publishing the articles was likely to have caused harm to her career.[74] On 13 September 2017, Wilson was awarded A$4,500,000 in damages. Wilson's lawyer Richard Leder, said "Today's verdict is a significant record—it's about four times the highest previous verdict in a defamation case in Australia". In June 2017, Wilson tweeted "Any dollars I receive will go to charity, scholarships or invested into the Aussie film industry to provide jobs".[75][76] Bauer Media is appealing the amount of the damages.[77] Personal life[edit] In July 2011, Wilson became a spokesperson for weight loss and nutrition company Jenny Craig in Australia.[78][79] In January 2012, Wilson told The Daily Telegraph
The Daily Telegraph
that she had lost 10 kilograms (22 lb) since signing up to the program.[80] Wilson asserted that the producers of Pitch Perfect
Pitch Perfect
had refused to let her lose any more weight during filming, as her contract stated she must stay the same size. She said that once her film commitments were over, she would start her diet again to reach her target weight of 80 kilograms (180 lb).[80] In February 2013, she confirmed that she had ended her agreement with Jenny Craig the previous year.[81] Wilson and her Bridesmaids co-star Matt Lucas
Matt Lucas
lived together in West Hollywood,[82] from September 2012 until 2015. They remain good friends.[83] In July 2015, Wilson stated her support for stricter American gun laws following the 2015 Lafayette shooting, stating, "I don't like getting political but America you really have to follow Australia's example re gun laws. I don't remember a mass shooting in Australia
Australia
since they overhauled the gun laws. It seems like every week in America there's a shooting. I just want people to be safe, especially people that are doing one of my favorite things in the world—going out to the movies to have fun."[84][85][86] Filmography[edit] Film[edit]
