Brett Ratner Accused Of Sexually Harassing Six Women - There Will Be Lots More



Director-producer Brett Ratner has been accused of sexual harassment by six women, including actress Natasha Henstridge, according to a report published Wednesday by the Los Angeles Times.

Ratner, through his attorney Martin Singer, strongly denied the allegations to the Times.

“I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” Singer told the Times. “Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”

Ratner’s publicist Simon Halls did not immediately respond to a request by Variety for comment on the article.

Henstridge told the Times that Ratner, 48, allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him during an incident in his New York apartment in the early 1990s when she was a 19-year-old model, according to the report.

Actress Olivia Munn detailed what she described as several disturbing encounters with Ratner. In one instance, she brought food to his trailer during the filming his 2004 film “After the Sunset.” Munn alleges that Ratner emerged from the bathroom wearing no pants and “furiously masturbating.” Munn later sparred with Ratner after he claimed during a 2011 TV appearance to have slept with her. A few days later he apologized for making that statement during an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show.

Nobody is surprised who is a long time reader here. I remember himmmm's gross story about the Rat and a mother-daughter duo. I hope Singer & Bay are next.

Oh another one, keep'em coming, so they know they'll never run from responsibility for their gross actions.

Just need to make the link between Rather and his business partner Steve Mnuchin,and we have a circle jerk all the way to the White House.

Should have read Ratner -spellcheck strikes again

Yeah, Hofmann surprised me too.

Piven, not so much. He’s issued a complete denial, though. Anyone remember his famous “s sushi poisoning excuse for quitting a Broadway role?

Distin is notiously flirty. Mb he went to far or it was misinterpreted as too far.

Ratner has been an abusive pig for years. Arnold and reitman too. So glad these bastards are getting exposed!

auntliddy said...

Yes!! He is a tool of the first order.

Where are all the district attorneys that investigate and prosecute these crimes?

Makes me wonder if there's a female in charge of the "Hollywood happenings" now and she's trying to clean house hehe

Ratfink was long overdue. Not really a fan of Munn, but she did try to warn the world years ago and no one would listen.

Hollywood is going to have to promote women to senior positions in the industry they way they are running out of directors.

@karky Legalspeak. No police reports, no lawsuits. Of course I'm sure plenty of people complained to their agent, to their PR people just not anywhere that would have a paper trail.

Waiting for someone to come in and file a formal complaint.

Not surprised at all and in fact called this the day Spacey got outed. Went for an interview for a job at The Barclays Center which Ratner co-owns. Potential manager said that Ratner was “a toughey” and “very involved.” Was all I needed to hear and knew what she meant. Ran the hell the other way.

For some reason I keep thinking of Dustin as the prime suspect with Corey Haim... I don't know why.

The dominoes are falling!

I think Charlie Sheen and for some reason even before today Hoffman had been popping into my head from nowhere as well in association with this,,
