The upcoming release had generated headlines over sections describing Rebel Wilson’s work with former co-star Sasha Baron Cohen.

Now released in the US, Rebel Rising makes claims about Baron Cohen’s alleged behaviour towards Rebel Wilson.

In the book, Wilson wrote that while on the set of Baron Cohen’s film The Brothers Grimsby, she was asked to do things that were “derogatory to women or to my size”.

She said some scenes made her feel like she was “being humiliated” and “sexually harassed”.

Wilson played the girlfriend of Baron Cohen’s character in the film.

A spokesperson for Baron Cohen said he vehemently denies the claims.

“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 spokesperson said.

Wilson will come to Australia to promote the book, visiting Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne on 9, 12 and 14 May.
