The Times cites Rush Hour 2 as a particularly difficult production, with one extra saying he invited her to his trailer and demanded to see her breasts.

Reuters could not independently confirm the claims by the women, which include on the record accounts by actresses Olivia Munn, star of X-Men: Apocalypse, and Natasha Henstridge.

Her spokesman called the lawsuit a tool to "intimidate women". Her allegations, posted to the social media platform a week ago, were not part of the Times article.

Cavazos also said he would often "squeeze whoever caught his attention" at the theater bar, and that he had personally touched him more than once.

A request for comment from Kohler, who lives in Hawaii, was not immediately returned to ABC News. He said those in the presence of Billy Bush, who owned Beach Whiskey.

"He strong-armed me in a real way", Henstridge told the Times. He sits on the couch along the far window of the room, in between Toback and a film student whom he's meeting for the first time.

For decades there's been whispers and rumors of the rape culture that's plagued Tinseltown and many have been too afraid to come forward for fear of professional repercussions.

For Brett Ratner, his lawyer, Martin Singer has denied every one of the cases of sexual assault, and while the director himself keeps mum, he is suing Melani Kohler for defamation. He has previously said it was a dream of his to direct an adaptation of Wicked.

Ratner denies all the allegations, but Warner Bros.is now re-evaluating their soon-to-expire $450 million four year deal with his company RatPack Entertainment, which he co-owns with Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin and Australian billionaire James Packer.
