Straight Talking viewers had a whole lot of love for Rebel Wilson, after watching her join Ant Middleton for a brutally honest interview.
The Pitch Perfect actress, 40, appeared on the Sky 1 series that sees Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ant use his tactical questioning training to get Rebel to open up as they travelled around Mexico.
The honest interview saw Rebel discuss a series of personal topics including her weight loss over the last year and being kidnapped at gunpoint when she was in Mozambique.
Viewers also saw Rebel discuss the #MeToo movement and admit that she was sexually harassed on two occasions throughout her film career, including one time when a male co-star had asked her to ‘put a finger up his a*se’.
Rebel revealed that the male’s friends were watching and were trying to film her, before he pulled down his pants. While Rebel had made an official complaint to the studio after informing her agent, she admitted: ‘I’m such a professional that I was like, well, I’m still going to continue with the job, which now I might not have.’
Seeing her open up so candidly moved viewers, as they praised Rebel for being a ‘strong and powerful’ woman, while being so honest.
