Ratner’s assistant called her for the next six months, unsuccessfully trying to arrange a dinner for her and the filmmaker, she said.
Actress Katharine Towne also described an aggressive come-on by Ratner that left her so uncomfortable that she said she still vividly remembers the incident years later. Ratner, she said, was persistent, “making it evident that he had one motive” – to sleep with her.
“He started to come on to me in a way that was so extreme,” said Towne, 39, whose credits include the film “I think it’s pretty aggressive to go in the bathroom with someone you don’t know and close the door,” Towne said.
She said she was nervous, and tried to make a joke about her weight: “I don’t even know what you want with me. “I like ‘em chubby sometimes,” she said Ratner replied.
Towne gave Ratner her number, hoping to placate him.
The filmmaker swapped seats with his assistant before departure so he could be next to her, she said.
Newman, who was on her way to shoot her first major acting role on the TV show , she said.
The same year her book was published, Munn ran into Ratner at a party thrown by Creative Artists Agency and he boasted of ejaculating on magazine covers featuring her image, she told in support of other women who are “brave enough to speak up”.
“I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn said.
Steiman, who was Ratner’s assistant from 1999 to 2004, said he never saw him mistreat women, and would be “shocked” if such conduct occurred.
Steiman noted that Ratner dated actress Rebecca Gayheart and tennis star Serena Williams during his time working for the filmmaker.
