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.

"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.
