God love her.

Rebel Wilson has claimed that a male co-star sexually harassed her several years ago and attempted to ruin her career.

The 42 year old said that the incident occurred before the #MeToo movement when the world saw hundreds of similar stories being shared from the industry.

Speaking to People Magazine, the Pitch Perfect star said: “He called me into a room and pulled down his pants.”

She then claims he asked her to perform a sexual act in front of his friends.

“It was awful and disgusting,” she added.

She went on to say that the unidentified actor then tried to ruin her career.

She said: “And all the behavior afterwards – this was all before #MeToo – where they kind of tried to destroy me and my career. If it had happened after #MeToo, then I could have just blasted them.”

As she originally had trained to be a lawyer, Rebel documented every detail of the harassment before informing her representative and other people in the industry

She went on to add that to this day, she still thinks about it and what she could have done differently, saying today she would have quit the job and not finished the film at all.

After complaining to her agency and the studio, she discovered she was not the first person to make a complaint about him.

Saying now she would stand up for herself more if it happened, Rebel acknowledged the bravery of other women in the industry who have come forward.
