Rebel Wilson shares sexual harassment story: 'I will no longer be polite'

Rebel Wilson shares sexual harassment story: 'I will no longer be polite'

It's become an all too common situation, with Rebel Wilson the latest actress to share her own sexual harassment experience in Hollywood.

According to Wilson, the unnamed male star asked to her to go to a room with him and asked him to stick her fingers up his butt. "I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room", tweeted Wilson.

"I called my agent immediately and my lawyer made a complaint with the studio - basically to protect myself that in the event something similar ever occurred I'd be able to walk out of the job and not obliged to return", the Bridesmaids explained, noting she was harassed throughout the process.

Furthermore, the Pitch Perfect alumni claimed one of the man's representatives called her and said she should support him despite the altercation.

"Earlier in my career, I also had a "hotel room" encounter with a top director".

"I realize everyone is not as lucky", she wrote. I thought we were there to talk comedy. Wilson claims that before anything could happen, the director's wife called him and yelled at him over the phone about sneaking around with other women, loud enough for Wilson to hear.

"To hear how prevalent sexual harassment and assault is, is just so saddening", she added.

"If I witness this behaviour, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be polite". "Interpret that as you will", she finished.

Numerous high-profile men in Hollywood have been accused of sexual assault and harassment in recent weeks, triggered by a New York Times report detailing allegations against the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Multiple women also came forward with the same accusations towards the film producer, according to Entertainment Tonight. Actor Kevin Spacey has also been accused of sexual misconduct with underage people.

On Friday, the BBC announced it had shelved plans to air the Agatha Christie drama Ordeal by Innocence after police in Los Angeles announced they were investigating a number of allegations against its star Ed Westwick.
