Brett Ratner is the latest high-profile filmmaker to be accused of historical sexual misconduct by women.
The LA Times posted a graphic article which details a number of incidents that feature Brett Ratner and a number of actresses, including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner is best known for directing for X-Men: The Last Stand, Rush Hour, and has more recently moved into production with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, which he co-founded with Steve Mnuchin, the current Secretary of the Treasury in the US and the national finance chairman on Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
Munn's account describes how she was asked to deliver a meal to Ratner's trailer on the set of After The Sunset, with Ratner allegedly appearing naked and masturbating in front of her. Henstridge, meanwhile, alleges that Ratner physically forced himself on her in the early '90s and that he coerced her into performing oral sex on him. Munn, Henstridge and four other women came forward to the LA Times in the wake of allegations surrounding James Toback and Harvey Weinstein.
For his part, Ratner - through his attorney - has denied all allegations against him and claims that the women's accounts are either fabricated, misrepresented or disputed.
