In the first incident, Wilson described a male star "in a position of power" asking her to go into a room with him and then "repeatedly asking [her] to stick [her] finger up his a**". She said his male friends attempted to film the incident on their phones while laughing. "I refused. The whole thing was disgusting," Wilson wrote.

In the second incident, Wilson alleged she had a hotel-room encounter with a top director. "I thought we were there to talk comedy. Nothing physical happened because the guy's wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses and luckily she was yelling so loud that I could hear her and he bolted out of there... I was so naive; the thought of anything happening apart from 'work talk' didn't even cross my mind."
