Rebel Wilson details 'disgusting' proposition by male star, hotel room encounter with top director

'Not Everyone Is as Lucky.' Rebel Wilson Says She Escaped 'Hotel Encounter' With 'Top Director'

Actress and comedian Rebel Wilson has taken to Twitter to reveal her own story of sexual harassment in the film industry, amid a scandal that has spread throughout Hollywood, reported The Independent.

The actress, who will next be seen on the big screen in "Pitch Perfect 3", out December 22, wrote that she realized she's one of the "lucky" ones.

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.

She also recalled making a complaint to her agent and the studio, but was then "threatened to be nice" to the man by his representatives.

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. She said his male friends attempted to film the incident on their phones while laughing. "I've told hundreds of people in the industry the story in more graphic detail basically to warn them off this individual".


Wilson alleged that she met up with the director, and during the beginning of their chat, his wife unexpectedly called to yell at him over the phone for allegedly fooling around with actresses. I thought we were there to talk comedy.

She also called herself lucky to have escaped both incidents. "I realize not everyone is as lucky". He has, just as many of those accused of sexual assault or harassment in the past month have, indicated that he will attempt to step out of the spotlight for the forseeable future.

"Women all across the country have given voice to their stories via social media as well, in a massive "#MeToo" movement where women have told their stories of sexual abuse or harassment. "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", she added. "Interpret that as you will", she declared.

Wilson's rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
