Rebel Wilson has spoken out about an experience she had with sexual assault in a series of tweets.

“I’ve been away in a ‘bubble’ of sorts creating new comedy overseas but it’s so hard to hear all these stories relating to sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood,” she wrote. “As you guys know, I’m a pretty strong and confident person but even I have a story to tell.”

She continued: “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 a–. 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: “I called my agent immediately and my lawyer made a complaint with the studio — basically to protect myself in the event something similar ever occurred I’d be able to walk out of the job and not obliged to return.” After that call, she was apparently “threatened by one of the star’s representatives to be nice and support the male star.”

“I refused,” Rebel 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.”
