Hollywood Director James Toback Accused Of Sexual Harassment By Thirty Different Women

Director James Toback Accused of Sexual Harassment By Over 30 Women

Following allegations of years of sexual assaults by producer Harvey Weinstein, almost 40 women have emerged to report years of perverted and creepy behavior by Hollywood director James Toback.

Numerous reports centre on Toback offering to give young actresses a boost in their career in exchange for something sexual, while others are situations where Toback approached them.

Most often, the young women were asked to respond to questions about their sex life then look at James Toback masturbate and ejaculate in front of them. He would then proceed to inappropriate sexual behaviour in front of them, the report said.

In the exposé published today, Sunday, October 22nd, the news organization interviewed thirty-eight different women, 31 of whom went on record.

Toback, 72, has denied the allegations, saying he never met any of the women who have accused him, or if he did, it "was for five minutes and (I) have no recollection", according to the Times. He also claimed to the Times he was medically incapable of such behavior, citing diabetes and a heart condition.

The allegations against Toback come weeks after the New York Times and The New Yorker expose of Harvey Weinstein.

"The way he presented it, it was like, 'This is how things are done.' I felt like a prostitute, an utter disappointment to myself, my parents, my friends".

"He told me he'd love nothing more than to masturbate while looking into my eyes", Louise Post, who met Toback in 1987 while attending Barnard College, told the Times.

Actress Adrienne LaValley recalled to the Los Angeles Times the time Toback harassed her in a hotel room in 2008 when he rubbed his crotch on her leg.

"It's important to say, I don't have any firsthand information about any of this", wrote "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn in a post on Facebook. "Going to his apartment has been the source of shame for the past thirty years". "And the frightful thing is, whichever road you choose, whether you sleep with him or walk away, you're still broken".

A cascade of accounts by women of sexual abuse has flooded social media under the hashtag #MeToo since a similar scandal surrounding movie mogul Harvey Weinstein erupted earlier this month. In 1989, Spy magazine wrote an account of several women who claimed they had experienced unwanted sexual encounters with him.

One woman who asked to remain anonymous said she still feared for her safety 23 years after Toback humped her leg in his office until he ejaculated in his trousers.
