Rebel Wilson’s Allegations Against Sacha

In her memoir, Rebel Rising, Rebel accused Sacha of sexual harassment while working with him on their comedy film, Grimsby.

“It felt like every time I’d speak to SBC, he’d mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene,” the Pitch Perfect franchise star claimed in her book. “I was like, ‘Ha, I don’t do nudity, Sacha.”

At one point in the memoir, Rebel alleged that Sacha sent a production assistant to tell her she was needed to film “an additional scene.”

“‘OK, well, we’re gonna film this extra scene,’ SBC says,” Rebel added. “Then he pulls his pants down. SBC says very matter-of-factly: ‘OK, now I want you to stick your finger up my ass.’ And I’m like, ‘What?? No!!’ … I was now scared. I wanted to get out of there, so I finally compromised: I slapped him on the ass and improvised a few lines as the character.”

Upon calling her agent, Rebel claimed she was “encouraged to ‘be professional and finish the film.’” She then recalled allegedly being asked to do reshoots, which included filming a sex scene.

“I filmed the scene, after demanding rewrites,” she pointed out. “But I still had to simulate having sex with this guy. I still had to kiss him repeatedly. … It really sank in that all this wasn’t something that could be laughed off. I relayed to the producers that I would not be doing any promotion for the film.”

A producer from Grimsby, however, denied Rebel’s claims in a statement obtained by PEOPLEalleging that she “had read and approved” the sexual scene “in advance.”

“At no point did Sacha actually ask her to put a finger in his butt,” the producer claimed. “Throughout this entire period, she was treated with the utmost respect and empowerment and was welcomed as a collaborator in all creative areas.”
