Rebel Wilson Says She Was Sexually Harassed By One Of Her Co-Stars
Actress Rebel Wilson has revealed that a former male co-star sexually targeted her.
The incident happened several years ago before the #MeToo movement emerged in late 2017 following the exposure of sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
“He called me into a room and pulled down his pants,” she told People. ”It was awful and disgusting. And all the behavior afterward – this was all before #MeToo – where they kind of tried to destroy me and my career. If it had happened after #MeToo, then I could have just blasted them.”
The Pitch Perfect actress used her legal training, which she obtained before pursuing a Hollywood career, to document the harassment. She then went on to tell her agent and others “amongst industry circles,” and learned that she was the fourth person that had complained about the inappropriate behavior of the man.
“If it happened again, I would probably stand up for myself even more just because of the bravery of the other women that have stood up and now allowed me an opportunity,” she added.
