Did you know that sometimes actors lie about their ages?

**GASP!!!**

And sometimes they even change their names from normal people names (like Mark Sinclair Vincent) to you-couldn't-possibly-do-anything-except-star-in-action-movies-with-a-name-like-this names (like Vin Diesel).

**DOUBLE GASP!!!**

These are pretty basic Hollywood vanities, yet Australian celebrity magazine Woman's Day is currently making a big fuss about Pitch Perfect 2 star Rebel Wilson, who they say is not who we think she is.

According to Women's Day, Rebel is actually 37 (not 29) and her real name is Melanie Elizabeth Bownds. Citing business records, Australian newspaper The Sydney Morning Herald has jumped into Rebel Gate and says she's 35 years old. Which...damn, girlfriend looks really amazing if she's actually in her mid-30s. Some skincare company should sign her to be the face of their anti-aging creams STAT.

We'd investigate these very important age claims about Rebel more exhaustively, but instead we think we'll just go see Pitch Perfect 2 again. Because we really don't give an aca-crap.
