#MeToo: Rebel Wilson Shares Harassment Experience in Hollywood


Rebel Wilson is the latest Hollywood star to reveal her experience of harassment in the entertainment industry.

In a series of tweets, the Australian actress alleged that “a male star in a position of power” had repeatedly asked her to perform an inappropriate act.

“I refused. The whole thing was disgusting,” the Pitch Perfect star said.

Rebel Wilson said the unnamed star’s male friends had attempted to film the incident before she left the room.

The actress complained to the film studio about the encounter, but says she was later “threatened by one of the star’s representatives”.

Rebel Wilson also recounted a second incident which she described as a “hotel room encounter with a top director”.

“Nothing physical happened because the guy’s wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses… I bolted out of there immediately,” she said.

Wilson added: “If I witness this behavior, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be polite.”

A growing number of harassment and rape allegations have been made against public figures in recent weeks.

The allegations have been sparked by multiple women speaking out against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of sexual harassment under the #metoo hashtag.
