Rebel Wilson opens up about sexual harassment by ‘a male star’

Rebel Wilson posted a series of tweets Saturday detailing two instances of sexual harassment she’s experienced, including a time when “a male star, in a position of power” asked her to engage in a sexual act.

“All whilst his male ‘friends’ tried to film the incident on their iPhones and laughed,” she said. “I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room.”



The Pitch Perfect star went on to explain that she called her agent and lawyer immediately afterward, and was later “threatened by one of the star’s representatives to be nice and support the male star.” “I refused,” she continued. “The whole thing was disgusting. I’ve told hundreds of people in the industry the story in more graphic detail basically to warn them off this individual.”

She also said she had a “‘hotel room’ encounter with a top director” where “nothing physical happened because the guy’s wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses and luckily she was yelling so loud that I could hear her and I bolted out of there immediately.”

“I had the ability to escape both incidents,” she added. “I realize not everyone is as lucky.” She concluded by calling the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault “so saddening.” “I know, moving forward, that if I witness this behavior, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be POLITE. Interpret that as you will.”

Like Wilson, many other people in the entertainment industry have been sharing their stories of sexual harassment and assault in the past weeks. While some of these stories, like Wilson’s, haven’t named a specific person, others have: Harvey WeinsteinKevin Spacey, and Louis C.K. are just a few of the big names in Hollywood who have been accused of a range of sexual misconduct.
