Six women claim that they were victims of sexual harassment and/or assault at the hands of ‘Rush Hour’ director Brett Ratner in a Los Angeles Times exposè.
Among the women are model-turned-actress Natasha Henstridge, 43, who said that Ratner forced her into performing oral sex on him back in the early nineties after the two spent an evening hanging out at a friend’s apartment in Manhattan.
‘He strong-armed me in a real way. He physically forced himself on me,’ said Henstridge, who was 19 at the time.
‘At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.’
Also coming forward is actress Olivia Munn, who claims that the director masturbated in front of her back in 2004 when she was asked to deliver food to his trailer on the set of ‘After the Sunset.’
‘He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,’ said Munn.
‘And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.’
Ratner, through his attorney Marty Singer, denied the allegations of both women.
Warner Brothers is now reevaluating the soon-to-expire, $450 million four-year deal the studio signed with RatPac Entertainment in 2013, the global media company formed by Ratner, Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin and Australian billionaire James Packer.
RatPac is currently at worth on a Hugh Hefner biopic that will be directed by Ratner and star Jared Leto. Mnuchin claims he sold his stake in the company back in June.
‘I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,’ said Munn, who told her sister about the incident between her and the director immediately after it occurred over a decade ago.
‘It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit. You just hope that enough people believe the truth and for enough time to pass so that you can’t be connected to him anymore.’
Munn also shed light on why many women do not come forward, saying that – at her sister’s recommendation – she called an attorney back in 2004 to look into filing charges or a lawsuit against Ratner.
That attorney, claims Munn, recommended that she do nothing given Ratner’s power in Hollywood and her desire to become an actress.
‘That did leave an impact on me,’ said Munn.
‘How broken do women have to be before people listen?’
Munn’s situation was further complicated by the fact that Rather, who ‘vehemently denies’ the allegations, made light of the incident in subsequent years.
After she wrote about the run-in, but not name the director in her 2011 memoir ‘Suck It, Wonder Woman! The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek, Ratner revealed that he was the director during an appearance on the show Munn previously hosted, ‘Attack of the Show.’
‘I used to date Olivia Munn, I will be honest with everybody here,’ said Ratner.
‘When she was “Lisa.” That was the problem. She wasn’t Asian back then.’
Ratner, 48, later apologized for that comment on Howard Stern, saying he did not mean to make Munn look like a ‘whore’ and the two never had sex.
He did not apologize for mocking her half-Japanese heritage, with ‘Lisa’ actually the actress’ first name.
That also came a year after Munn claims Ratner asked her why she hated him at an event before stating: ‘Why? I bought 10 of your
