Remember Rebel Wilson's mega defamation case against Bauer Media, where she was awarded a record-breaking $4.5 million in damages?

The 38-year-old Australian comic actress, best known for the Pitch Perfect movies and Bridesmaids, was not in the Court of Appeal in Melbourne to hear the three judges' decision.

The articles falsely claimed she lied about her real name, age and childhood in a bid to make it in Hollywood.

The night before the decision, Wilson took to Twitter to reveal she wasn't bothered by the publisher's appeal.

According to Buzzfeed, the judge denied Wilson "special damages" stating she had not proven that the defamation cost her work.

Speaking on behalf of Bauer Media, general counsel, Adrian Goss, said: "It was important for us to revisit the award of damages".

"The Court of Appeal in Australia will be handing down their decision in the morning re my defamation case against @bauermedia".

It also reduced Wilson's non-economic losses by 50,000 Australian dollars to 600,000 Australian dollars.

The actress is now filming in Europe, and ahead of the decision, took to Twitter last night to say that regardless of the level of payout, she had won the case.

But Bauer Media appealed and the Woman's Day publisher had a major win on Thursday.

The previous ruling granted her the $3.9 million figure on the basis she had missed out on film roles as a result of the defamatory articles.

That sum would have been the largest defamation payment ever ordered by an Australian court.

However, the attempt was rejected by the Victorian Court of Appeal.

Wilson's legal representatives were not immediately available for comment.

Discussing the case earlier this year, Wilson said the magazines had launched a vicious campaign which derailed her career and had been "really, really hurtful and devastating".

"I'm away on location in Europe filming right now", she tweeted on Wednesday night.
