Rebel Wilson has spoken out again on Sacha Baron Cohen, saying she would 'never work with him' again.

The 44-year-old Pitch Perfect star appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she discussed some of her comments made in her new memoir which comes out in the UK later this month (25 April) but is currently available to pre-order.

The Borat actor and Wilson worked together on The Brothers Grimsby back in 2016 and, since then, she has opened up about her experiences on set in the memoir, titled Rebel Rising.

A representative for Baron Cohen, who Wilson has called an 'a**hole' in the book, has described the claims as 'demonstrably false', in a statement given to the PA news agency.

In a memoir passage obtained by People Magazine, the Aussie actor alleged that Baron Cohen requested she 'stick her finger up his a**' as he thought it would make a funny scene, yet she said 'it felt like [he] had sexually harassed me'.

She wrote: "It felt like every time I’d speak to SBC, he’d mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene. I was like, 'Ha, I don’t do nudity, Sacha'."

Wilson's memoir was published earlier this month (2 April).

Elsewhere, Wilson continued: "SBC summons me via a production assistant saying that I’m needed to film an additional scene. 'Okay, well, we’re gonna film this extra scene', SBC says. Then he pulls his pants down ... SBC says very matter-of-factly: 'Okay, now I want you to stick your finger up my a**'. And I’m like, ‘'What?? ... No!!' ..."

Wilson added: "I was now scared. I wanted to get out of there, so I finally compromised: I slapped him on the ass and improvised a few lines as the character."

Since then, a spokesperson for Baron Cohen, 52, vehemently denied mistreating Wilson or pressuring her to go naked.

Andy Cohen asked Wilson how much money it would take for her to work with Baron Cohen again.

They said: "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."

Wilson has since sat down with Cohen, 56, to discuss some of her comments in Rebel Rising.

The talk show host introduced the segment where he asks his guest a number of juicy questions but they only have one opportunity to 'plead the fifth', AKA not answer.

Cohen said: "Rebel Wilson, the time has come for you to plead the fifth. Here we go!

"All right. These are all based on your best-selling book. Okay, Rebel Rising."

"So I probably already said everything then," Rebel joked.

Cohen asked the Aussie actor: "How much money would it take for you to work with Sacha Baron Cohen again?"

He also informed her: "By the way, you can plead the fifth to one of these questions."

Without hesitation, Wilson revealed: "No money ever. Yeah. Now I have a 'no a-holes policy with work."

Cohen then asked: "$20 million, you would not? $30 million? $50 million to do a film with Sacha?"

To which Rebel replied 'no' to all three questions.

Tyla has previously reached out to representatives of Sacha Baron Cohen for further comment.

Rebel Rising is available to pre-order now on Amazon.
