Age is nothing but a number! It's just that in Rebel Wilson's case, that's a number no one can seem to agree on.

The Pitch Perfect 2 star known to be 29-years old, took to Twitter to respond to claims by Austrailian tabloid Woman's Day that she is actually 36-year-old Melanie Bownds.

The story has been picked up all over, but the actress is having none of it, writing, "OMG I'm actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly known as "CC Chalice" ....thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome."

Rebel continued with a reference for her Pitch Perfect fandom, "Okay but all jokes aside real name is Fat Patricia."

The tabloid quotes an anonymous source, claiming to have studied with Rebel -- whom they claim did not go by that name -- at Tara Anglican School for Girls in North Parramatta, Sydney.

The source also offered up these admittedly striking alleged yearbook photos as evidence.

Rebel seems unfazed by all the talk. Which makes sense when you consider she's in the number one movie...
