Initially, Baron Cohen remained silent on the matter, but his representatives have since spoken out, addressing Wilson’s claims. A representative of Baron Cohen spoke to TMZ, stating, “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 controversy escalated when Wilson alleged that Baron Cohen hired a crisis management PR team to suppress details from her memoir. She even labelled him as an “a**hole” and revealed that she dedicated a chapter to him in her book. Wilson went on to accuse Baron Cohen of on-set “harassment,” claiming that he made s*xually explicit demands that were unrelated to their film, ‘Grimsby Brothers.’

In a video posted on 15th March 2024, Wilson indirectly hinted at her feud with Baron Cohen, discussing her zero-tolerance policy towards “a**holes” in Hollywood. In a radio show interview in 2014, Wilson recounted an incident where Baron Cohen allegedly pressured her to perform nude scenes in the film, despite her objections.

She claimed that Baron Cohen even made unwanted s*xual demands, such as asking her to “stick your finger up my b*tt.”

Baron Cohen’s representative has refuted these allegations, asserting that they possess sufficient evidence to disprove Wilson’s claims.
