Although acting remains Wilson's main revenue stream, she has also emerged as a singer and now has her own record label called Rebellionaire, which has bagged a deal with Warner Music for her movie soundtracks.
Rebel Wilson's salary
In her early Hollywood days, the Australian comedian and actress didn't mind low pay for onscreen visibility and accepted just $3,000 for her role in Bridesmaids. But her fee went up to $65,000 for Pitch Perfect, and she later renegotiated to bag $2 million for Pitch Perfect 2, plus $2 million in bonuses. Since then, Wilson's movie contracts have always been in seven-digit figures.
Defamation case and legal victories
In 2017, Wilson won a defamation case against the Bauer Media Group related to articles in the Australian Women's Weekly and Woman’s Day, which falsely portrayed her as a serial liar due to discrepancies in her upbringing. She initially won $3.2 million in damages, but in October 2017, the Bauer Media Group appealed, resulting in a reduced damages amount of $600,000.
In 2017, the Australian actress introduced a chic collection designed for curvy women, emphasizing that style knows no size. Partnering with plus-size clothing specialist Torrid, Rebel Wilson's contemporary line offered stylish and elegant pieces. This inclusive collection is still accessible and can be purchased at various Walmart stores across the U.S.

Prior to these, she lived in a 2,500-square-foot Hollywood Hills estate, acquired for $2.2 million in 2014.
Wilson bagged a partnership with OLLY, and became the brand’s celebrity ambassador last year. Committing to her wellness journey, Rebel aligns her authentic healthy lifestyle with the values of the company.
Upon relocating to New York, Rebel Wilson, associated with the Australian Theatre for Young People, received a $12,000 scholarship.
