  • A defamation trial between Rebel Wilson and the publishers of Woman's Day is due to begin on Monday

Wilson is suing Bauer Media for defamation over a series of articles she says portrayed her as a serial liar, costing her movie roles.

Collins said that, in the wake of the articles, Wilson stopped being offered roles, was sacked from several films, began taking sleeping tablets and developed a stress rash on her arms and around her mouth.

An all-female jury will decide whether Australian Hollywood actor Rebel Wilson was defamed by a series of articles in tabloid magazine Woman's Day.

The initial article published by Woman's Day claimed Wilson had publicly lied about her age, real name and upbringing, allegedly insinuating she had added a touch of Hollywood to her backstory.

Mr Collins said the articles were published to coincide with a high point in Wilson's acting career.

"Rebel Wilson is an Australian success story, she is an extraordinary talent", Dr Collins said.

"It's a case of how this publisher refused to let facts get in the way of a good story".

The defamation trial between the Bridesmaids star and publishing company Bauer Media began in the Supreme Court on Monday with the empanelling of a six-person jury before Ms Wilson's legal team gave its opening remarks.

Outside court, Wilson said it was traumatic to relive that period of her life.

The court was told her family, agents and other Australian actors including Hugh Sheridan and Kate Jenkinson would also give evidence.

Bauer has reported it will strenuously deny Wilson's claims and defend its journalists.

Wilson is seeking unspecified damages from the publisher. She argued no "reasonable reader" would have thought any less of Wilson upon reading the articles, which had "done her no harm".

Schoff also said the articles were factual, telling the court that Wilson did not grow up in the "ghetto" of Sydney as the actress previously said in interviews.

The trial before Justice John Dixon is expected to run for three weeks.
