Ever since Harvey Weinstein’s sexual victims have come out with their own haunting sexual harassment stories, other celebs have chosen to open up and share similar accounts.
From Blake Lively to Reese Witherspoon to many of Harvey Weinstein’s victims, females around the world have finally found their voice.
And Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair are the latest A-listers – this time, telling their stories of sexual harassment from screenwriter and director James Toback.
Semla Blair told Vanity Fair about the time he asked her to auditon naked, and then allegedly requested her to let him rub against her…
“I felt disgust and shame, and like nobody would ever think of me as being clean again after being this close to the devil. His energy was so sinister,” she said in the interview, before adding that he threatened her with violence if she ever told anyone.
Rachel McAdams also told Vanity Fair about her own experiences with him when she met with him to discuss a role in Harvard Man, and the meeting was very unprofessional and filled with inappropriate remarks.
“This has been such a source of shame for me – that I didn’t have the wherewithal to get up and leave,” she said.
“I was very lucky that I left and he didn’t actually physically assault me in any way.”
Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams are just two of 200 (!!!) women who have accused Toback of sexual harassment. It goes without saying that he denies every single case.
