Bauer did not appeal the verdict that the articles were defamatory but argued the Australian-record damages awarded in September were excessive.
The Bridesmaids actress took to Twitter and wrote, "I'm away on location in Europe filming right now,"

"As I've said before, I have already won the case and this is unchallenged! This case was never about the money for me," she added.
The 38-year-old actress was not in the Court of Appeal in Melbourne to hear the three judges' decision.
