Rebel Wilson Laments 'Low Self Worth' After Humiliating Scenes With Sacha Baron Cohen
Columbia Pictures

The 'Pitch Perfect' actress regrets her decision to return to the set of the 2016 movie 'The Brothers Grimsby' for reshoots after degrading scenes with her male co-star.

AceShowbiz - During the promotion of her upcoming memoir, "Rebel Rising," Rebel Wilson has made further allegations regarding Sacha Baron Cohen's behavior towards her while working together on the 2016 film "The Brothers Grimsby."

Wilson's memoir includes claims that Cohen sexually harassed her on set, which have been denied by Cohen and the film's producers. In an interview with The Times, Wilson did not directly address these allegations.

However, she expressed that she felt "disrespected on set" and remained silent out of fear of being labeled a troublemaker. Wilson further claimed that she was humiliated by the attention given to her weight on screen.

"It's one thing for someone who is fat to exploit their size for comedy, but it's another for somebody else to humiliate you," she said.

According to Wilson, her costumes were deliberately chosen to accentuate her weight and make her an object of ridicule. When she refused to run naked across a football pitch for a scene, a stripper was hired instead, and Wilson was requested to watch on a monitor.

Wilson also expressed regret for returning to film reshoots, feeling ashamed of her own behavior. "The fact that I then went back… Why do I have such low self-worth?" she lamented.

Cohen has dismissed Wilson's claims about her experiences on the set of "Grimsby." A clip released by the UK's Daily Mail appeared to show Wilson collaborating with the creative process. However, Wilson dismissed this clip as edited and out of context, describing it as an "a**hole move" by Cohen and the producers.

She said, "What this edited video shows is what I had to do in order to get out of the room, as written in 'Rebel Rising,' " while "leaving out everything that preceded it including my horrified refusal to stick my finger up SBC’s butt."
