PEOPLE.COM – What is Rebel Wilson’s real age? She’s a 100-year-old mermaid, of course.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star took to Twitter to fire back at an Australian magazine for a story citing yearbook photos and a classmate to allegedly out Wilson, who has said she’s 29, as a 36-year-old of upper-middle class upbringing named Melanie Bownds.

Realistically, did anyone think Rebel Wilson was her real name to begin with? It’s not like she’s a celebrity child. And, whether she’s 36 or 29, she has stolen our hearts as college student Fat Amy.

Her response was perfect. Not that we’d expect anything less.

Back in 2013, Wilson revealed another dark secret: she went to law school. “I didn’t have an opportunity to practice, but you never know,” she told PEOPLE. “One day, if things don’t work out, I might be a barrister!”

GLAMOURMAGAZINE.CO.UK – If you haven’t taken a trip to the cinema to watch Pitch Perfect 2 yet, what are you waiting for? It’s SO good. Why? Because Rebel Wilson’s in it, silly.

To celebrate the film’s release, GLAMOUR’s Leanne Bayley sat down with Rebel Wilson to talk about her sexy love scenes (spoiler: Fat Amy gets some action), her hatred of karaoke (yes – really!) and her plans for Pitch Perfect 3 – set in Space.

The 29-year-old Australian actress didn’t rule coming back for a third instalment, telling us: “It’s so good that everyone in the first movie is back in the second one, and we love working together, so who knows if there’s future storylines but I would really wanna see the Bellas intact and see what they go on to do. We do have a joke that we’re going to go into the Intergalactic championships against aliens, the galaxy champions.”

Rebel also spoke about the romantic storyline she has in the sequel, saying: “Yeah! I get a LOT of action in Pitch Perfect 2. Adam DeVine is such a sweetheart – who plays Bumper in the film – and we both have a similar background in comedy; we do stand-up and improvising, and sketch comedy, so when we’re both on set it’s really really spontaneous and we never quite know what each other’s gonna say in the scene. And he’s just so much fun to play around with.”

The comic actress, who has starred in two brilliantly funny films Bridesmaids and What To Expect When You’re Expecting, also told us that she’s ready to tackle an edgy role: “I’ve started to get offers for more serious roles and when I trained as an actor you don’t just train in comedy, of course . Someone who I really admire is Robin Williams, who is such a genius comedian but when he did dramatic roles they were such good dramatic turns, so yes, I’m sure there’s something around the corner. Who knows what it is yet! I haven’t filmed it yet.”

In our short interview, Rebel did manage to shock us – she’s not a fan of karaoke. How can that be?! She elaborated: “A lot of people think – because we sing in the movie and whatever – that we would do karaoke, but I have a thing against karaoke. The microphones are never good quality, they have always been dropped, and a lot or people are screaming into them and the vocal sound quality is never the right mix and I’m like ‘no’, I’ll sing in a movie – when I’m getting paid.”

Can’t argue with that.

Pitch Perfect 2 is in cinemas now.

FASHIONNSTYLE.COM – Even before “Pitch Perfect 2″ hit theaters, many were already speculating about the possibility of a sequel.

Elizabeth Banks, director of the box office hit, has opened up to Collider about rumors surrounding the film starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Hailee Steinfeld, among others, saying, “It would be disingenuous to say that no one’s talking about a ‘Pitch Perfect 3;’ the possibility of it.”

She continued, “We are really focused on getting as many butts in seats for this one. If fans embrace it, we are going to seriously think about what the continuing journey would look like, but we don’t know what that is yet.”

The actress-director added, “I had some connection points into the story that really jazzed me up, and I don’t know what the story of the third one is yet. So I can’t say… but I’m excited to delve in and figure it out.”

Banks is not the first one to speak about rumors surrounding the project. Kendrick had been asked to comment on the matter as well.

Speaking to Time magazine, the actress, who plays Beca in the comedy-musical film about a cappella groups said, “I’m not one to count my chickens, so I just want to see how this one does and find out if there’s an appetite for that before I even think about it. I’ll drive myself crazy.”

Rumors about the upcoming project started swirling when Wilson was quoted by a Los Angeles Times reporter as saying that she had already signed on for the project.

“News: Rebel Wilson just told me there will be a 3rd @PitchPerfect and she recently signed on to be in it!” Amy Kaufman tweeted. “(She doesn’t know abt Kendrick.)”

While awaiting news about the project, fans can catch “Pitch Perfect 2″ in theaters. The movie was released on May 15.

EW.COM – Unless you have been living in some sort of pop culture blackout (and definitely not reading your Entertainment Weekly), you know that Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out this weekend. The sequel finds the Bellas graduating college and introduces some new faces, including Hailee Steinfeld’s Emily Junk, to the group.

But could the franchise ever expand to spin-off movies, like for Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy? The actress says she’s down for it. “There’s always the Fat Amy origin story, which could be really funny,” says Wilson. “There was also my backstory in the first movie that never made it on screen. The reason that Amy came to Barden University in the first place was that she was on a football scholarship, like she could kick really well.” We’d go see that on the big screen.

Pitch Perfect 2 is out now.
