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.

As for Fat Patricia, here’s video proof that’s a fact.

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!”
