During an interview on Andy Cohen's satellite radio show Radio Andy, actress Melissa Gilbert claimed that director Oliver Stone sexually harassed her during an audition for his 1991 film The Doors.
At first, Gilbert told her story without naming any names. She kept the accusations very anonymous saying that she was humiliated during an audition because she had "embarrassed him in a social situation." Gilbert ended up running out of the room crying.
"I'm actually sitting here telling you this story, afraid to say his name, because I'm worried about backlash," she said in the interview. After being reluctant she eventually said, "Oh f*** it! It was Oliver Stone, and it was The Doors."
Gilbert says the role she was auditioning for was the Meg Ryan's character. She goes into detail about the scene she had him read -- a scene he said he wrote especially for her.
The scene had her on her hands and knees saying, "Do me, baby." Gilbert said that Stone asked her to stage it and she refused and left the audition crying.
Gilbert's accusation against Stone is not the first. Former Playboy model Carrie Stevens claimed that the director groped her during a party. Stone has yet to respond these allegations.
I think the tide is turning and that the news will switch to those men who didn't sexually harrass women.
Although, I have to admit, Melissa Gilbert on her hands and knees saying, "Do me, baby", is pretty hot.
Take him to court.
This doesn't even seem to be about being sexually harassed anymore. It's about belonging to the #metoo craze
Every woman who's ever been sexually harassed in the past 40 years suddenly found her voice.
Or is desperate for attention.
I don't doubt that many women have been sexually harassed. But at this point it's getting hard to tell truth from vendetta. When there is only one or two accusers, without evidence, it's really one persons word against another. And where exactly is the line between harassment and flirtation? Apparently we're coming to a point where any physical contact can be construed as sexual harassment.
There are so many levels of this, it's becoming hard to tell what really defines harassment. Just for perspective, and by today's standards, I do not personally know any men who could not be accused of sexual harassment. I don't want to sound indifferent about this, but men are what we are. Most men only really care about a few things, one of them being sex.
