Julianne Moore accuses James Toback of sexual harassment

Julianne Moore Says James Toback Invited Her to His Apartment on Two Separate Occasions

Julianne Moore Says James Toback Invited Her to His Apartment on Two Separate Occasions

James Gunn began to illustrate how far-spread Toback's alleged misconduct was just by looking at his own circle, writing that some of them included three women he's dated, two of his best friends, and a family member.

A Times Monday report says hundreds of more women had been approached by Toback on the streets of Manhattan to offer them movie roles and sexual advances.

In tweets posted periodically over the past couple of days, Whipp has updated followers on the number of women who have contacted him about Toback, increasing from dozens to more than 100.

After the Los Angeles Times' Glenn Whipp published a story Sunday in which 38 women came forward to accuse the Bugsy screenwriter of sexual harassment, Moore shared her alleged experience with Toback in a two-part tweet Tuesday morning.

The director would convince them to attend meetings in which he would masturbate in front of them and grind against them, numerous women told the newspaper.

"I refused", she wrote, "One month later he did it again with the EXACT same language". Louise Post, guitarist and vocalist for Veruca Salt, detailed her story to the Times, and "Today" show anchor Natalie Morales said that she also had an encounter with Toback in Central Park. "I said don't u remember u did this before?" she added.

However, Toback denied the allegations to LA Times, saying he never met any of the women, or if he had it "was for five minutes and [I] have no recollection".

Toback's behavior was widely rumored before exposés on Harvey Weinstein's decades of abuse opened up the opportunity for more women to come forward about their own abusers in Hollywood.

He has said it was "biologically impossible" for him to engage in the behaviour described in the report, and claimed that he had diabetes and a heart condition that required medication.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed it has received multiple phone calls from women filing complaints against Toback.
