Aussie actress Rebel Wilson has been very active on Twitter these past few days, using the platform to detail her own experiences of sexual harassment.
One of the Pitch Perfect star’s accusations involve an unnamed “male star” who was in a “position of power” and pushed her to go into a room alone with him.
“As you guys know, I’m a pretty strong and confident person but even I have a story to tell,” she began.
“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.
“All whilst his male ‘friends’ tried to film the incident on their iPhones and laughed. I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room.”
She added that she spoke to her lawyers about what happened and she managed to have a clause in her contract to stop this kind of thing happening again… but that wasn’t the end of it.
She was reportedly threatened by the actor’s representatives and told she had to “be nice” and “support” him.
“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.”
We really hope this unnamed actor is revealed soon.
Rebel Wilson’s Twitter revelations didn’t end there, as she also told her followers that she had a “hotel room encounter” with a top Hollywood director who “was notorious” for preying on young women.
“Earlier in my career, I also had a ‘hotel room’ encounter with a top director,” she revealed.
“I thought we were there to talk comedy. 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…”
The actress concluded by saying that she is lucky to have escaped both situations, and will no longer stay silent if this kind of thing ever happens again…
“To hear how prevalent sexual harassment and assault is, is just so saddening.
“I know my stories aren’t as horrific as other women and men have described – but if you’ve ever experienced anything like this I feel for you and can relate on some level.
“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.”
