Orange Is The New Black actress Yael Stone has accused Geoffrey Rush of inappropriate behavior behind the scenes of stage production The Diary Of A Madman in which both Australian actors played in 2010 and 2011.
In an interview with the New York Times, se states that Geoffrey Rush danced naked in front of her, spied her with a mirror while showering and sent erotic text messages. The actress was 25 at the time, the Oscar winner 59. Stone says she was rather afraid to come out with the story, due to the strict defamation laws in Australia.
At the end of last year another actress appeared with accusations of inappropriate behavior by Geoffrey. The actor complained to the newspaper that published the allegations. The lawsuit was closed last month, a ruling is expected in early 2019.
The actor also denies Stone’s story. Against the New York Times, his spokesman stated that they are incorrect “and in some cases completely out of context.”
