Six women, including actress Olivia Munn, have accused Hollywood producer and director Brett Ratner of sexual assault or misconduct.
In a report by the Los Angeles Times, Munn alleges that Ratner masturbated in front of her in his trailer while she was visiting the set of his 2004 film After the Sunset.
The Newsroom star wrote about the encounter in a 2010 essay, although did not mention Ratner by name.
Ratner then admitted he was the unnamed filmmaker in Munn’s essay, later claiming he had "banged" her.
“I've made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn told the Los Angeles Times.
“It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won't quit."
Species actress Natasha Henstridge has also alleged Ratner sexually assaulted her when she was a 19-year-old fashion model. Henstridge said the filmmaker had "strong-armed" her into giving him oral sex at his New York apartment.
"He physically forced himself on me," she said. "At some point I gave in and he did his thing."
