BANG! NEWS – Rebel Wilson has revealed that she once had a stalker, who wanted to lock her up at his farm until she grew to love him.
According to The Herald Sun, Rebel told attendees in a speech at the Australian Open’s Inspirational Women lunch, “(He) said he had made a bedroom for me at his farm and he was going to lock me in there, and I will grow to love him.”
The man also showed up at a court in Victoria in 2017 armed with flowers, during her defamation action against Bauer Media. Rebel also talked about being harassed in Hollywood and admitted she was conflicted about naming her aggressors because she didn’t want to “destroy people’s lives”.
She said, “I have obviously encountered instances of harassment and I never actually publicly named the men involved. You have this weird feeling, ‘well technically, it wasn’t that bad. Is it worth destroying people’s lives over?'”
Rebel previously spoke out about being the victim of harassment, taking to Twitter to share her story.
She also shared, “Earlier in my career, I also had a ‘hotel room’ encounter with a top director. I thought we were there to talk comedy. Nothing physical happened because the guy’s wife called.
“I was so naive the thought of anything happening apart from ‘work talk’ didn’t even cross my mind.”
