Why has Rebel Wilson BANNED Fairfax Media from her media tour to promote Pitch Perfect 3? Actress said to 'be angry at CEO Greg Hywood for contributing to Bauer defamation case'

She won a groundbreaking defamation case against Bauer Media in September.

And it appears Rebel Wilson also has an issue with Fairfax Media, publishers of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

The 37-year-old has placed a 'blanket ban' on the newspapers during her promotional tour for Pitch Perfect 3, according to a?SMH?report on Wednesday.

The actress reportedly 'refused a sit-down interview with the publication, banned it from attending the red carpet and cancelled staff invitations to the premiere'.

The ban allegedly stems from a request Rebel made to Fairfax Media CEO Greg Hywood in 2015 being revealed in her defamation trial against Bauer in May.

She had asked the Fairfax CEO to remove an article that displayed her age back in 2002, and as she described in court, an 'unflattering' photo of her.

The correspondence was produced during her trial with Bauer Media as part of a court order.

'We are disappointed that Ms. Wilson refuses to treat Fairfax journalists professionally,' a Fairfax Media spokesperson said in a statement.

'Fairfax responded to a subpoena as part of legal proceedings she commenced. We were compelled by the court to do so,' they added.

Rebel was awarded a groundbreaking defamation payout, a record $4.56 million, after numerous articles from Bauer's magazines were found to be defamatory.

In June, a jury found the Hollywood star was defamed by Bauer in eight articles because they branded her a serial liar.

Bauer announced last month they will appeal the decision, which Rebel tweeted might prompt her to 'expose more of [Bauer's] disgraceful practices'.
