Women Accuse Hollywood Director Of Sexual Harassment


Toback wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay for 1991's "Bugsy" and directed films like "The Pick-up Artist" and "Harvard Man".

More than 30 women have come forward accusing Hollywood director James Toback of sexual assault.

In case of writer and presenter Sari Kamin, to which Toback accosted in street on pretext of offering him an audition, director persuaded her to meet alone with him in a hotel room and pressed her to undress with excuse that if it was not Able to do it re, I couldn't do it on a set.

More than 40 women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior, ranging from sexual harassment to rape.

The newspapersays 31 of the 38 women who made accusations against Toback agreed to do so on the record. He also repeatedly claimed that for the last 22 years, it had been "biologically impossible" for him to engage in the behavior described by the women interviewed by The Times, saying he had diabetes and a heart condition that required medication. Though he's worked with many famous actors like Robert Downey Jr., James Caan and Heather Graham, the average moviegoer likely wouldn't recognize Toback's name. For Louise Post-today the singer and guitarist for indie rock band Veruca Salt, but in 1987, when Toback allegedly told her he'd like to masturbate in front of her, just a college student at Barnard-Weinstein's public fall from grace forced her to face that part of her past.




It's a common thread among many women I know ... after someone mentions they were sexually abused by a creepy writer-director, the response is, "Oh no, you got Tobacked".

Then in 2008, he allegedly tried to rub his crotch against the leg of actress Adrienne LaValley. "He always wanted me to read for him in a hotel or come back to his apartment, like, 'How serious are you about your craft?'" "He always wanted me to read for him in a hotel or come back to his apartment, like, 'How serious are you about your craft?' And the terrible thing is, whichever road you choose, whether you sleep with him or walk away, you're still broken". "Going to his apartment has been the source of shame for the past 30 years, that I allowed myself to be so gullible".

Toback continued to work in the industry after the article.

He also said that he never met any of the women, of if he had, "it was for five minutes". When asked, "paralyzed", if she was trying to stimulate herself sexually, director replied that "Of course" and young girl ran away. Toback's alleged M.O. was so depressingly monotonous that the magazineran his accusers' stories in a giant four-page foldout table, with column headers like "The Credentials", "Pitching the Project", and "Trust Me".
