Rebel Wilson's landmark defamation win has exposed some seriously shocking details about how little the actress was paid in her early Hollywood career.

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old Pitch Perfect star won an "unprecedented" AU$4.56 million in a lawsuit against Bauer Media, the publisher of Woman's Day, over a series of articles that painted her as a serial liar.

It was the largest defamation payout in Australia's history, with Victorian Supreme Court Justice John Dixon ruling the actress should receive $650,000 in general damages, and $3.97 million in special damages.

The sum is four times the Australian record for defamation payouts, but perhaps the more baffling finding buried within the 136-page judgement, is the dismal amount of money the actress received for her early Hollywood roles.

According to the court document, shortly after moving to Los Angeles in 2009, Rebel landed her breakout role as Kristen Wiig's roommate in Bridesmaids, where she was paid just US$3,000 (AU$3,759).

The US$32 million film was hugely successful and went on to make $288 million worldwide. But if you thought the rising star had it in the bag from there, you'd be gravely mistaken.

Take a look below at her remuneration (excluding royalties and bonuses) for the movies that followed.

Pitch Perfect: US$65,000

The pair were never more than a frame apart, with Wilson's best break of 82 in frame seven while Allen knocked in a 103 in the fourth. The Northern Irishman added 94 to set up the decider but Wilson held his nerve for a hard-earned win.He will face home favourite Ding, who led Luca Brecel 2-1 after breaks of 61 and 121 and took the fourth frame on the black. Brecel drew level but further breaks of 91 and 80 helped Ding to a 6-4 win.

Those paychecks combined equate to US$4,155,000 (AU$5,185,440), only just surpassing the actress' AU$4.5 million payout from Bauer Media.

When bonuses and royalties are factored in, her overall total comes to US$6.4 million (AU$8 million), but that's still not even double the payout.

Taking to Twitter following the ruling, Rebel told fans it "wasn't about the money", and that she planned on donating the damages to charity and the Australian film industry.

With the actress expected to be paid up to US$6 million (AUD$7.5 million) for Pitch Perfect 3, due out in December, Rebel can rest easy now.

But the judgement certainly brings to light the uncertain reality she, and so many, experience in the early days of their Hollywood careers.

Today was the end of a long and hard court battle against Bauer Media who viciously tried to take me down with a series of false articles. When the jury delivered its verdict they answered every single question in my favor. I am eternally grateful to those ladies. Today Justice Dixon gave his considered full judgement. He accepted that Bauer Media subjected me to a sustained and malicious attack timed precisely to the launch of Pitch Perfect 2. It was hurtful and devastating that a corporation would do something like that, knowing that their paid anonymous source and stories were dodgy. The learned judge accepted without qualification that I had an extremely high reputation and that the damage inflicted on me was substantial. He said that the nature of this aggravated defamation and the unprecedented extent of its dissemination (meaning it caused a worldwide media firestorm) makes vindication of particular importance. It was important for me to set the record straight, especially because I have so many young fans. I also feel like it's important to stand up to bullies. I have been awarded a record sum from Justice Dixon. I will be putting that money to good use by donating it to charity and investing in an Australian film ( but obviously can't say exactly or do anything now as I won't receive the money until everything is finalized). I thank Justice Dixon so much. And I'm looking forward to getting back to entertaining everyone!

Lack of support for Russell Wilson in Seahawks offense borders on neglect .
The only touchdown the Seahawks have scored through two games came courtesy of Russell Wilson's creativity, which might be the only way they score all season.By all rights, the Seahawks should be 0-2, the way what passes for an offense is playing so far. Instead, they’re 1-1, barely avoiding an ugly loss to an offensively-impotent 49ers team at home Sunday.
