Rebel Wilson has returned to Australia to take action against articles that were published about her in 2015.

Magazines under Bauer Media such as OK!, Women's Day and Women's Weekly published articles about the actress saying she was lying about her age and was older than she claimed she was.

Rebel has said that these articles have resulted in her losing work because of what was written.

The actress' lawyer Renee Embom told the court on Friday that the articles have heavily impacted on her livelihood and further career prospects.

"Ms Wilson will give evidence that after the articles, her contracts were terminated.

"She was told she was too divisive ... it's destroyed (her) reputation as a fair and honest person." 

Rebel has become one of the most respected comedic actresses in Hollywood meaning that the articles that were published were able to reach global executives quite quickly.

The trial will begin on May 22.
