What does this mean for the Rush Hour franchise? Hollywood is currently exposing it’s not so great side with daily reports of prominent men in the business being called out for different forms of sexual harassment. Today respected director, Brett Ratner has now joined the list. It is being reported that 6 women have stepped forward accusing Ratner of some sort of sexual misconduct.
Through representation, Rather has went on to deny these new allegations against him.
High-profile director Brett Ratner has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, who detailed their experiences with Ratner to the Los Angeles Times. Henstridge claims that Ratner forced her to perform oral sex on her in his New York apartment in the 1990s. The actress, then a 19-year-old model, was hanging out with the then-music video director watching TV. Henstridge fell asleep, she told the Times, and when she woke up the others had left and she was alone with Ratner. He blocked the exit and began touching himself, she tells the Times, and then he forced her to perform oral sex on him….Ratner’s attorney Martin Singer dismissed the accounts of Henstridge and the five other women, who opened up to the Times in a series of interviews, saying the alleged sexual misconduct occurred in private homes, on movie sets or at industry events. None of the women the Times spoke to reported the allegations to the police, the paper says in its Wednesday (Nov. 1) story.
