Rebel Wilson Says She Experienced “Awful And Disgusting” Sexual Harassment By A Male Costar
Content warning: Depiction of sexual harassment.
Rebel Wilson opened up about being sexually harassed by a male costar several years ago.
Rebel said that she utilized her law degree to document the incident, and spoke to her rep about it. “Definitely amongst industry circles, I made sure people knew what happened,” she continued.
“I should have left. It wasn’t worth it. But at the same time, I was like, ‘Oh well, do the right thing, be a professional and finish the movie.’ Now I would never do that.”
“I thought even complaining to my agency was a big step. And to complain to the studio. I found out I was like the fourth person to complain about the guy. Such gross behavior, but a lot of women have had it way worse,” she continued.
In 2017, Rebel tweeted about experiencing harassment from a male costar while his friends attempted to film it on their phones.
She further recalled how she was “threatened” by her male costars’ reps to “be nice.”
