The "Pitch Perfect" star came forward with her accounts, including one lewd incident with an unnamed actor, after hearing countless women's stories of sexual harassment in assault in Hollywood.

"A male star, in a position of power asked me to go into a room with him and then asked me repeatedly to stick my finger up his a**", she wrote on the micro-blogging platform. She added that his male friends attempted to film the incident on their iPhones while laughing. The wife was yelling so loud Wilson managed to get out of the hotel room before anything physical could happen between her and the director.

Wilson, 37, said she immediately called both her agent and lawyer and her lawyer was able to file a complaint with the studio.

She said that later, she was "threatened" by one of the star's representatives and told to "be nice" and support him.

Wilson was asked to go to the director's hotel room and she did because she thought they would talk about comedy.

Wilson said that the director's wife called him on the phone and lambasted him for sleeping with actresses.

USA TODAY has reached out to Wilson's rep for comment. "I realize not everyone is as lucky".

"To hear how prevalent sexual harassment and assault is, is just so saddening".

And she pledged that in future she would be not allow fears of being seen as impolite to hold her back from calling out sexually aggressive behaviour.

The allegations have been sparked by multiple women speaking out against the Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, and a subsequent campaign encouraging victims to share their stories of sexual harassment under the #metoo hashtag. "Interpret that as you will", she wrote.

Wilson, who has recently been filming overseas, said in a series of statements on Twitter that it was "hard to hear all these stories relating to sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood", before describing two incidents that involved her personally. Multiple women also came forward with the same accusations towards the film producer, according to Entertainment Tonight.

House Of Cards actor Kevin Spacey is also facing investigation in the United Kingdom amid allegations of harassment and assault.

A growing number of sexual misconduct allegations have been made against public figures in recent weeks.
