Richard Dreyfuss & George Takei Get Hit With Sexual Assault Allegations
Not long after his son accused Kevin Spacey of groping him when he was 18 years old, Richard Dreyfuss is accused of sexual harassment by an L.A.-based writer saying that he repeatedly harassed her for years when she was in her mid-20s.
“I remember walking up the steps into the trailer and turning towards my left,” she said to Vulture. “He was at the back of the trailer, and just — his penis was out, and he sort of tried to draw me close to it… He was hard. I remember my face being brought close to his penis. I can’t remember how my face got close to his penis, but I do remember that the idea was that I was going to give him a blow job. I didn’t, and I left.”
Star Trek icon George Takei was also accused of sexual assault after allegedly groping a former model and actor at his home in 1981. George denied the claim, tweeting: “I am as shocked and bewildered at these claims as you must feel reading them.”
“I do take these claims very seriously, and I wanted to provide my response thoughtfully and not out of the moment,” George said. “Right now it is a he said/he said situation, over alleged events nearly 40 years ago. “But those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful.”
Brad, who is 100 percent beside me on this, as my life partner of more than 30 years and now my husband, stands fully by my side. I cannot tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these difficult times. /5
