Teich told Vulture she first met Dreyfuss at a theater where she worked and they spent hours together over several years after she was hired to develop a script for an ABC comedy special.

Stern: Well they were different times, you never sexually harassed anybody. have you?

In 1987, Teich said, she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her. Dreyfuss agent Barry McPherson on Saturday said his client denies ever exposing himself to Teich. I came to and said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'I don't want to do this.' He goes, 'You need to relax. You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked.

A former model and actor on Friday accused Star Trek actor George Takei of sexual assault in 1981. In a series of tweets this morning, Takei writes that the events "simply did not occur".

Brunton told The Hollywood Reporter the incident occurred in 1981, when he was in his early 20s and Takei was in his early 40s. "I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them", Takei continues to his 2.79 million followers.

Brunton said that Takei took him out for dinner and the theatre when the former model broke up with his then boyfriend.

Brunton said he left the condo and sat in his vehicle in shock.

"This happened a long time ago, but I've never forgotten it", Brunton said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Brunton then detailed an alleged encounter that he said forced him to flee Takei's condo.

Stern brought up the topic of sexual assault by noting the harsher consequences Harvey Weinstein faces compared to Trump. Stern asked Takei, referencing the recording of Trump boasting about grabbing women by their genitals.

"Some people that are kind of skittish, or maybe afraid, and you're trying to persuade", Takei says after a big laugh. But when the interview abruptly turned to Takei's own sexual conduct, the actor, an outspoken critic of the president's comportment, seemed to fluster hosts Howard Stern and Robin Quivers. He said Takei told him to sit on a bean bag and then he passed out. "It was either in my home ― they came to my home". Dreyfuss' son, actor Harry Dreyfuss, said Kevin Spacey groped him when he was 18, prompting his father to post on Twitter that he was "so incredibly proud" of his son.

Heather Unruh told reporters Wednesday that Spacey stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old-son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at a restaurant in July 2016. Rapp was 14 at the time and Spacey was 26.

The revelations caused scores more women and men to speak out about Weinstein's behavior and that of others in the entertainment industry, including House of Cards star Kevin Spacey, director James Toback, comedian Louis CK and others. The allegations appeared to be more hard to accept than allegations against other favorite entertainment icons, notably Louis C.K.
