On her Instagram story, Wilson wrote: "I will not be bullied or silenced by high priced lawyers or PR crisis managers."

She continued, "The a**hole that I am talking about in ONE CHAPTER of my book is: Sacha Baron Cohen."

Wilson says in the clip, "When I first came to Hollywood, people were like, yeah, 'I have a no a**hole policy, that means like, yeah, I don't work with a**holes.' I was like, 'Oh yeah!' I mean, that sounds sensible or logical."

The Bridesmaids actor explained that it "really sunk in" after she worked with someone who fit the bill: "Yeah, now I definitely have a a**holes policy. Chapter on said a**hole. It is chapter 23, that guy was a massive a**hole."

Wilson, who previously alleged she was harassed by a costar, worked on the 2016 film The Brothers Grimsby with Baron Cohen.

Rebel Rising will hit shelves on April 2.
