Rebel Wilson says her alleged experience with Sacha Baron Cohen led to her eating in an ‘extremely unhealthy way'

The actress said she felt 'completely disrespected' by Sacha Baron Cohen

Rebel Wilson has claimed she was 'disrespected' by Sacha Baron Cohen which led to her developing 'extremely unhealthy' eating habits in an excerpt from her newly-released memoir.

The two Hollywood actors starred in The Brothers Grimsby together in 2016 and, nearly a decade on from working together, Wilson has come out with a host of accusations about Baron Cohen.

Baron Cohen has strenuously denied all her claims.

Ahead of the release of her tell-all memoir, Wilson spoke about an 'a**hole' she'd previously worked with, and later named Baron Cohen as the person she was referring to.

Wilson's book, Rebel Rising, hit shelves yesterday (April 2), where people have since rushed to read the chapter about the Borat star.

A excerpt obtained by PEOPLE ahead of its debut detailed Baron Cohen allegedly asking Wilson to 'stick her finger up his a**' because he thought it would make a funny scene in the film and claimed 'it felt like [he] had sexually harassed me'.

The 44-year-old also alleged that she was asked to do a nude scene, to which she declined.

Recalling the time when they began filming on The Brothers Grimsby, Wilson claimed: "It felt like every time I’d speak to SBC, he’d mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene. I was like, ‘Ha, I don’t do nudity, Sacha.’"

Her book further details how she dealt with the disrespect she felt.

Wilson penned that she felt 'completed disrespected, which led to me treating myself with even more disrespect by eating in an extremely unhealthy way'.

Baron Cohen's reps have denied all the allegations made by his former co-star.

When previously approached by UNILAD to comment on the ongoing situation, a spokesperson for Baron Cohen said: "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."

Elsewhere in her memoir, Wilson discusses having once tried Ozempic.

Wilson decided to start losing weight in 2020 after a doctor told her that she would have a better chance of successful IVF treatment if she did so.

She began by making small changes, including long walks and a diet which was low in sugar and high in protein.

She lost around 80lb with her hard work and determination, opting to briefly try Ozempic as a way to maintain her weight loss.

While the drug has received a lot of criticism, Wilson said of it: "Someone like me could have a bottomless appetite for sweets, so I think those drugs can be good."
