Rebel Wilson has revealed a male co-star once asked her to ‘put her finger up his arse’.

The 40-year-old actress, who also shared frightening details of how she was kidnapped and held at gunpoint in Mozambique, opened up to Ant Middleton about her horrific experiences of sexual harassment in Hollywood in their upcoming episode of Straight Talking.

Rebel disclosed that she was the victim on two separate occasions.

‘One was with a director in a hotel room, but nothing happened because, (this was in Australia), his wife called abusing him saying he was trying to sleep with me,’ she shared.

And the second time, Rebel told Ant, was ‘another male co-star who asked me to put my finger up his arse.’

Sharing details of the incident, Rebel said the male co-star’s friends were watching and had their iPhones and were trying to film it.

‘Then he pulled down his pants and I was a bit entrapped in a room,’ she added.

Asked whether she reported the actor, Rebel continued: ‘I called my agent immediately and said this happened. We made an official complaint to the studio.

‘But I’m such a professional that I was like, well I’m still going to continue with the job. Which now I might not have.’

Discussing the industry post-MeToo, Rebel said that now she may handle the situation differently and not return to the job.

‘Things that happened to me aren’t that severe, but I’m still scared of naming the people,’ she confessed.

Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking marks the second instalment of Ant’s interview specials, after his episode with Liam Payne last year.

This time around, the former Royal Marines Commando takes Rebel on a Mexican adventure where they buggy race, snorkel, horse-ride, and eat Tim Tams around a campfire.

Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking will air on 14th Jan at 9pm on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV.
