Rebel Wilson: Cohen wanted me naked

Rebel Wilson has revealed how Sacha Baron Cohen kept trying to persuade her to strip off for his new film, Grimsby.

The Pitch Perfect star, who shares screen time alongside the British funnyman in the forthcoming comedy, had to fend off his requests for her to bare all.

"I didn't quite know what to think but Sacha is completely outrageous. Every day, he tried to get me to go naked. Every day!" she said.

"And I'm like, 'Sacha, no! I told you, I'm a classy actress'."

The film, directed by Now You See Me's Louis Leterrier, also stars Sacha's wife Isla Fisher, Mark Strong, David Harewood and Ian McShane.

"He just keeps pushing you and pushing you and pushing the comedy in every single scene, which is why his stuff is so out loud funny," Rebel said.

"Grimsby is certainly going to get a lot of attention, let me put it that way. It's highly outrageous."

Grimsby is scheduled for release in July 2015.
