Rebel Wilson says she felt ‘sexually harassed’ by Sacha Baron Cohen on movie set

The Bridesmaids star has made a series of allegations about Sacha Baron Cohen

Warning: This article contains discussion of sexual harassment which some readers may find distressing.

As Rebel Wilson's tell-all memoir hits shelves, more allegations about Sacha Baron Cohen have come to light.

The actress' book was released yesterday (April 2) and ahead of it being published, Wilson teased that she had a chapter of her memoir - titled Rebel Rising - dedicated to an 'a**hole' in the industry she'd worked with.

The Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect favorite later named Baron Cohen as the person she was talking about.

The two stars worked on the 2016 movie, The Brothers Grimsby together where Wilson starred as Baron Cohen's on-screen girlfriend.

Since naming the Borat actor, Wilson has claimed that other people have come forward to her with 'stories' about their own experiences with Baron Cohen - but he denies all the allegations about him.

A spokesperson for Baron Cohen told The Hollywood Reporter: "While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby."

Following Wilson's book debuting yesterday, part of the damning chapter on Baron Cohen accuses him of 'sexually harassing' her.

Discussing shooting a particular scene in South Africa, Wilson claims that Baron Cohen wanted her to do a naked scene. She said no, however, and insisted that it was 'no way essential to the plot'.

She also says that her former co-star 'wanted me to look and feel awful' and wanted her to wear clothes 'where you could see as much cellulite as possible'.

The whole thing made Wilson feel 'sexually harassed' by Baron Cohen.

Wilson has previously called out Baron Cohen for allegedly harassing her.

She told an Australian radio station in 2014 (the same year The Brothers Grimsby was filmed): "Sacha and I have the same agent in America and I’m like, ‘Sacha, I’m going to call our agent Sharon and tell her how much you are harassing me.’

"Every day he’s like, 'Just go naked, it will be funny. Remember in Borat when I did that naked scene? It was hilarious.'"

Wilson went on, as per "On the last day I thought I’d obviously won the argument and he got a body double to do the naked scene."

UNILAD has contacted Baron Cohen's rep for comment.
