The Aussie actress had sued Bauer Media, which also publishes Cosmopolitan and TV Week, after Woman’s Day and other magazines published a series of stories alleging Wilson had lied about her age and family history.
Wilson had claimed just over $7 million in damages in total, saying that the stories hurt her career. She wanted $5.9 million in special damages and $1.2 million in general damages.
A jury found in June that the star was defamed by Bauer’s publication, and on Wednesday a judge said that she should receive $650,000 in general damages and $3.9 million in special damages.
