Famous actress Rachel McAdams has joined the list of women accusing James Toback of sexual harassment. The famous actress revealed that she was 21 when it happened. According to Rachel, everything happened in a Toronto hotel.
The actress revealed that she was supposed to be there for an audition. However, when she arrived Toback asked her to sit on the floor. “Pretty quickly the conversation turned quite sexual and he said, ‘You know, I just have to tell you. I have masturbated countless times today thinking about you since we met at your audition,'” the actress revealed.
Rachel also said that Toback tried to manipulate her using some questions about her and her career. “How brave are you? How far you are willing to go as an actress? I want to build some intimacy between us because we have to have a very trusting relationship and this is a very difficult part,” he allegedly told her.
Rachel said that she actually was shocked when Toback asked her if he could see her pubic hair. “I just jerked off in the bathroom thinking about you. Will you show me your pubic hair?” she said Toback told her after leaving her alone in the room for a short period of time. The star of course said no. The actress managed to leave the room soon after. “I was very lucky that I left and he didn’t actually physically assault me in any way,” the actress claimed.
However, the time spent in his presence was as difficult as possible. “I felt like I was there forever. This has been such a source of shame for me—that I didn’t have the wherewithal to get up and leave. I kept thinking, ‘This is going to become normal any minute now. This is going to all make sense. This is all above board somehow.’ Eventually I just realized that it wasn’t,” she concluded.
Rachel also said that she never went through such an experience again. She also claimed that she was very naïve and didn’t realize that things could have gotten very bad for her. She also revealed that she couldn’t sleep after this experience.
