Famous actress Olivia Munn is among the women who have accused Hollywood producer Brett Ratner of sexual harassment. Olivia talked to the Los Angeles Times about her experience involving the filmmaker. Olivia claimed that her first bad encounter with Ratner dates back to 2004 when she was early in her acting career.
Olivia said that she was on the set of After the Sunset, when she went to deliver Ratner a meal in his trailer. However, Olivia did not know what Ratner was going to do. She said that he started to masturbate in front of her. Actually, this is not the first time when Olivia talks about this incident. The star opened up about her experience in her essay collection, released in 2010. However, she did not reveal the name of the director at that time.
Well, unfortunately for Olivia, this was not the only encounter that she had with Ratner. She said that she ran into him at an event in 2010, and he actually told her that he ejaculated on magazine covers featuring her image. “It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit,” the actress said. “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,” she went on to add.
Given her experience involving Ratner, Olivia decided that she was not going to work with him again. “I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner.” Five other women also accused him of sexual harassment. One of these women said that Ratner forced her to perform oral sex on him.
Ratner denied all the claims made by these women. “I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” his lawyer said. “Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client,” the same statement added.
