The defamation trial for "Australian success story" and Hollywood movie star Rebel Wilson will hear from a number of witnesses including her mother and siblings, her Australian and United States agents, and an old school friend from her childhood in Sydney.
Wilson's lawyer says his client was devastated by a series of magazine articles the actress says painted her as a liar and subsequently cost her roles in Hollywood.
The hearing has been interspersed with quips from Wilson and clips from her movies, including a memorable a capella performance of Ace of Base's I Saw The Sign.
"It's not lucrative", she told the court.
The articles said Rebel had lied about her name, age and upbringing in Australia.
"It should have been the high point of her career".
