38 women accuse film director James Toback of sexual harassment”

Toback, who has directed films like Black and White, and Two Girls and a Guy while also being nominated for writing Warren Beatty's film Bugsy, is now facing mounting accusations of sexual harassment, and the details are sickening.

Almost forty women were accused Monday in the Los Angeles Times, the american director James Toback of sexual harassment and assault, committed over several decades.

Thirty-eight women described similar meetings with Toback in which he boasted of sexual conquests, touched them inappropriately or masturbated in front of them, the newspaper reported. Alleged sexual harassment would then occur.

Following the bombshell reports and accusations about producer Harvey Weinstein's abuse and harassment of women throughout his career, stories have come out on nearly a daily basis about men and women who have faced sexual harassment or abuse over the course of their time in Hollywood. They include Louise Post, guitarist and vocalist for the band Veruca Salt and Terri Conn from the television soap opera As the World Turns.

"It's a common thread among many women I know ... after someone mentions they were sexually abused by a creepy writer-director, the response is, 'Oh, no". "I felt like a prostitute, an utter disappointment to myself, my parents, my friends. And I deserved not to tell anyone", she said.

"He told me he'd love nothing more than to masturbate while looking into my eyes", Post said. But eventually, she went to hotel room with Toback, where - despite her reservations - he persuaded her to get undressed, she said. Starr Rinaldi claimed to the publication that he always wanted her to go to his apartment as a testament to how "serious" she is about her art form.

He also said that he never met any of the women, of if he had, "it was for five minutes".

"And the frightful thing is, whichever road you choose, whether you sleep with him or walk away, you're still broken, You have been violated", added Rinaldi.

Gunn says that he tried to warn people about Toback.

"Toback took me to a hotel and paid $600 in cash at the front desk", she continued.

After she undressed, Toback allegedly began rubbing his groin against her bare leg, at which point she grabbed her clothes and fled. "Today, I cried for the first time since then about it", she told the Times. Toback's alleged M.O. was so depressingly monotonous that the magazineran his accusers' stories in a giant four-page foldout table, with column headers like "The Credentials", "Pitching the Project", and "Trust Me".
