Poll: Have you ever lied about your age?
Give it to us straight. Honest answers only.

AUSTRALIAN ACTRESS REBEL Wilson has just won a defamation case against a media organisation which reported that she lied about – among other things – her age.

Lying about your own age – whether it be to take a few years off or add some on – is a common occurrence for men and women alike.

So, have you done it in your time? In today’s lunchtime poll, we ask: Have you ever lied about your age?

Poll Results:

Not since I was 17, trying to get into nightclubs (3584)
No, never (2926)
I have, the odd time (2858)
Yes, all the time (1116)
