Hollywood star Rebel Wilson has won her high-profile court battle against the publisher of Woman's Day and Australian Women's Weekly, Bauer Media.

An all-female six-person jury deliberated for two days over their verdict, in which they were asked to consider 40 questions and eight potentially defamatory magazine articles, before handing down their decision on Thursday.

The 37-year-old Pitch Perfect star was defamed by the publisher when they accused her of lying about her real name, age and childhood, with the dollar figure she will be granted in damages to be decided by Justice John Dixon.
