Wilson’s memoir, published by Simon & Schuster, is set to be released globally in hardcover, ebook, and audio formats on April 2. The book is expected to detail Wilson’s journey to success in Hollywood after growing up in Australia. In a chapter dedicated to the “assh**e,” Wilson describes her experiences working with a Hollywood star who allegedly harassed her on set. This chapter, which is chapter 23 of the book, is said to be about Sacha Baron Cohen, with whom Wilson worked on the 2016 comedy “Grimsby”.

The allegations against Baron Cohen stem from Wilson’s experiences on the set of “Grimsby.” Wilson has previously spoken about disagreements and friction with Baron Cohen, including instances where she felt pressured to perform uncomfortable scenes. In one instance, Wilson claimed that Baron Cohen asked her to go naked in a scene, which she refused. On another occasion, Baron Cohen allegedly suggested a scene where Wilson would have to perform an intimate act with him, which she also declined. Wilson has described these experiences as harassment and has called for a “no assh**es” policy in Hollywood.
