All the celebrities who have responded to Rebel Wilson’s claims.

Wilson then opened up further about the filming experience in an interview with The Sunday Times. 

“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, adding that filming The Brothers Grimsby had “turned out to be the worst professional experience of my career”.

Baron Cohen’s lawyers responded to the initial allegations, labelling the claims as “demonstrably false”.

“While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby,” the actor’s spokesperson said.

In another excerpt shared by Stellar, Wilson spoke about playing the character of Toula in Fat Pizza — an experience she has mixed opinions about, even if she said she will always be grateful for the TV show “giving me my start in Australian television”.

“I was in a boys’ show, so I had to take their fatphobic jokes right on my double chin,” she wrote in Rebel Rising. “All people cared about was that I was fat and funny. And I was doing both of those things very well.”

Wilson went on to flag some comments she recalled Fat Pizza writer and showrunner Paul Fenech making about her as she was breaking into comedy.
