  • Rebel Wilson tweeted on Saturday about being sexual harassed.
  • Once was by a "male star" another time was by a "top director."
  • She vows to "no longer be POLITE" if she witnesses behavior like this going forward.

 

Rebel Wilson is the latest actress to share her experience of being sexually harassed in Hollywood. 

The "Pitch Perfect" star took to Twitter on Saturday and fired off tweets about what she has gone through in her career. Once with a "male star" in a "position of power," and then also a "hotel encounter" with a "top director."

"As you guys know, I'm a pretty strong and confident person but even I have a story to tell," Wilson wrote in her first tweet. 

"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 a--," Wilson went on to tweet. Adding that the actor's male friends were also there and tried to record the incident on their iPhones. She refused and was able to get out of the room. 

Wilson said she was later "threatened" by one of the star's representatives to "be nice" and support the male star. She has since told others to stay clear of the male star.

Wilson also tweeted: "Earlier in my career, I also had a 'hotel room' encounter with a top director. I thought we were there to talk comedy. Nothing physical happened because the guy's wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses."

The actress closed her tweets by stating that going forward she would "no longer be POLITE" if she witnessed this type of behavior again.

"Interpret that as you will," she tweeted.
