Rebel Wilson Says 'Male Star' Sexually Harassed Her While His Friends Tried To Film




 

Actress Rebel Wilson has come forward to describe a series of disturbing incidents from her time in the film industry, including being sexually harassed by a "male star" while his friends looked on and laughed.

"I've been away in a 'bubble' of sorts creating new comedy overseas but it's so hard to hear all these stories relating to sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood," the Australian actress wrote on Twitter Saturday, referring to the barrage of sexual harassment and assault allegations against various celebrities and powerful figures in recent weeks.

Wilson continued that she had her own "story to tell," and described encounters with two different men, neither of whom she identified by name.

"A male star, in a position of power asked me to go into a room with him and then asked me repeatedly to stick my finger up his ass," she wrote, adding that the man's friends were laughing and trying to film on their phones.

After she told her agent about what happened, she said the star's representatives called her and threatened her to "be nice." She said she subsequently warned other people to avoid the person in question.

Another time, Wilson said, a "top director" invited her to his hotel room for what she thought would be a professional meeting. Wilson fled the encounter when she overheard the man's wife calling and getting angry with him for "sleeping with actresses."

Wilson noted that she was grateful she was able to get out of both incidents.

"I realize not everyone is as lucky," she said. Read her full tweets below:
