Rebel Wilson’s has described an encounter with a “male star, in a position of power” in which he asked her repeatedly “to stick my finger up his a–” while his friends filmed it.

The “Pitch Perfect” star took to Twitter Saturday to tell her story, adding that she immediately reported the incident to her agent, and that her lawyers filed a complaint with the studio. Subsequently, Wilson said the unnamed actor’s reps “threatened” her “to be nice and support” him. She not only refused to do so but also “told hundreds of people in the industry the story in more graphic detail basically to warn them off this individual.”

Wilson, who also said she had a “‘hotel room’ encounter” with a director at the start of her career, said that her strong sense of self and a few things she learned in self-defense classes gave her the “ability to escape both incidents.” But she realizes not everyone does.

“To hear how prevalent sexual harassment and assault is, is just so saddening. I know my stories aren’t as horrific as other women and men have described — but if you’ve ever experienced anything like this I feel for you and can relate on some level. I know, moving forward, that if I witness this behavior, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be POLITE. Interpret that as you will.”
