Hollywood star Rebel Wilson has won her high-profile court battle against the publisher of Woman's Day, Bauer Media.
Justice John Dixon will decide how much money to award the 37-year-old actress, best known for her work in comedies such as Pitch Perfect and Bridesmaids.
Wilson says she had been dumped from the role of Jack Black's panda love interest in Kung Fu Panda 3 after the series of "malicious" magazine articles.
"Not everyone has the strength to stand up for themselves, but I do".
Nementzik told the court she did not think her source was "completely unreliable", and denied publishing information she knew was false.
"Unfortunately, this was the only way that I could stand up to this huge media organisation was by taking them to court publicly", she added.
"Bauer Media will consider its options following today's verdict at the Victorian Supreme Court".
In 2015, Bauer Media published articles in multiple magazines painting Wilson as a serial liar.
Wilson, who will now jet to NY to shoot a film with fellow Australian Liam Hemsworth, said she was grateful the drama was now over.
Over a recent three-week trial, Rebel Wilson has been put through the ringer.
"They're hungry at this point to write anything at all negative about me ... here's one little comment on a story and they're kind of like vultures swooping in to contact this person", she said.
However, Wilson claimed the defamatory articles not only caused her personal hurt but severely impacted her career causing her to lose significant Hollywood movie roles. "And with the unanimous and overwhelming verdict they have sent a very clear message".
'The main thing for me was to set the record straight.
Wilson told the court during the trial that she had never lied about her age but had stopped disclosing it since 2009 on the advice of her agents and publicists.
Last week, summing up the defence, Georgina Schoff, QC, said the articles were substantially true, trivial, and did not affect Ms Wilson's acting career.
Incensed, Rebel took to Twitter to attack her namesake.
"Rebel Wilson came here to stand up to a bully".
