Natasha Henstridge was watching a movie on Brett Ratner's couch when she fell asleep.
She was a 19-year-old fashion model; he was an up-and-coming music video director in his early 20s. She got up to leave, Henstridge said, but he blocked the doorway with his body and wouldn't budge. "At some point, I gave in and he did his thing." Ratner, through his attorney Martin Singer, disputed her account.
In his defence, he thought this was a thing where you could eat breakfast off of 100 women." For years, he palled around with Robert Evans, the slick-haired former production chief at Paramount Pictures who was later convicted of trafficking cocaine, and Toback, who, as The Times reported last month, has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 300 women.
A playboy persona Ratner, 48, has long flaunted his playboy persona, bragging publicly about his sexual prowess.She said that persistent false rumours that they had been intimate have infuriated her, prompting her to talk to The Times in support of other women who are "brave enough to speak up." "I've made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner," Munn said."It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won't quit," she said.Toback denies the charges, Halperin has acknowledged certain misbehavior, and Spacey has said he didn’t remember an incident in which he came on to a then 14-year-old Anthony Rapp.
Times Actress Katharine Towne described a meeting with Ratner at a party in 2005 where he allegedly aggressively came on to her and followed her into a bathroom.
"Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client." Olivia Munn said that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed "After the Sunset" when she was still an aspiring actress, he masturbated in front of her in his trailer when she went to deliver a meal.
