11 Stars Accused of Sexual Misconduct Before Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein Scandal

"Species" star Henstridge says Ratner forced her to perform oral sex on him.

Brett Ratner, the Hollywood producer and director behind the "Rush Hour" franchise and dozens of other major movies, has been accused of sexually harassing or assaulting six women, including actress Olivia Munn.

Munn, best known for roles in "X-Men: Apocalypse" and HBO series "The Newsroom," told The Los Angeles Times that the filmmaker once masturbated in front of her. While visting the set of Ratner's 2004 action movie "After the Sunset," she was asked to drop food off in the director's trailer as a favor. She was told he would not be there, but much to her surprise, Ratner walked out naked from the waist down and told her not to leave.

"He walked out... with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other," Munn said. "And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated."

Munn added that when she ran out of the trailer, she told the man who asked her to do the favor what had happened and he just said, "Ugh, sorry about that."

The actress then explained how she felt uncomfortable whenever she would run into the producer at a Hollywood event because he would continuously bombard her with questions like, "Why do you hate me?"

She later had a public feud with the producer after he publicly said he slept with her in 2011. He apologized for misspeaking on Howard Stern's radio show a few days later.

"I shouldn't have to be completely broken, battered and devalued in order to prove he crossed a line," Munn said.

Canadian actress and model Natasha Henstridge, who most memorably starred in "Species" and "The Whole Nine Yards" in the late '90s, told The LA Times that Ratner forced her to give him oral sex when she was 19-years-old.

"He strong-armed me in a real way," Henstridge said. "He physically forced himself on me. At some point, I gave in and he did his thing."

Katherine Towne, who starred in "What Lies Beneath" and "Mulholland Drive" in the early 2000s, detailed a 2005 meeting during which Ratner followed her to the bathroom. Actresses Jamie Ray Newman, Eri Sasaki and Jordan King also came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the producer.

Ratner's attorney, Martin Singer, denied all of the allegations written in the LA Times article.

"I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment," Singer said. "Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client."

The latest Hollywood harassment bombshell comes in wake of numerous allegations from women, including many famous actresses, that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them throughout his decades of success in Hollywood. Weinstein has since denied the accusations.
