Yael Stone is coming forward with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior against screen legend Geoffrey Rush.
The Orange Is the New Black actress recently leveled her accusations in an interview with the New York Times on Sunday, in which she claims Rush behaved inappropriately toward her while the two were starring in an Australian stage production of The Diary of a Mad Man in 2010 and 2011.
Stone told The Times that she was afraid to come forward with her claims, both out of concern for her career and out of fear of being sued for defamation.
Rush denied Stone’s allegations, telling The Times that they “are incorrect and in some instances have been taken completely out of context.”
However, the 67-year-old Oscar winner apologized for behaving in a way that upset Stone, stating, “Clearly Yael has been upset on occasion by the spirited enthusiasm I generally bring to my work.
