Warners Bros. confirmed the suspension Saturday and said in a statement, "We take all allegations of misconduct extremely seriously". You've never held a job over someone if they didn't touch your cock...' replied Stern and Takei was quick to add that it was never an incident in work, adding: 'No, I never did that'. In addition to his stature as one of the seven prominent cast members on the original Star Trek TV series from the late 1960s (and subsequent movies featuring the cast in later years), Takei in recent years has used his voice in Hollywood to address social issues, including gay rights activism, after he revealed his sexuality in 2005.

Jaws veteran Dreyfuss, who won his Best Actor Academy Award for The Goodbye Girl in 1977, responded after being accused of the "constant" harassment of LA-based screenwriter Jessica Teich over a "two to three year period" in the mid-1980s.

She said: "When I read about his support for his son.I remember thinking, "But wait a minute. This guy harassed me for months".

Heather Unruh told reporters on Wednesday that Spacey stuck his hand down her then-18-year-old-son's trousers and grabbed his genitals while the two of them were at a restaurant in July 2016. "It just seemed so hypocritical".

In 1987, Teich said, she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her. Dreyfuss agent Barry McPherson on Saturday said his client denies ever exposing himself to Teich. "I can not tell you how vital it has been to have his unwavering support and love in these hard times". "I felt violated when this happened". After Takei failed to persuade him to accept the attention, he said, he left the condo and drove home. Get comfortable.' And I said, 'No.

"You need to relax".

Rupert Murdoch Called AT&T's CEO Twice About CNN Sale
Trump's comments have provoked concern that he may improperly influence the US Department of Justice to block the deal. Then he added: "I do feel you should have as many news outlets as you can - especially since so many are fake".


"I disrespected myself and I disrespected them and ignored my own ethics, which I regret more deeply than I can express". But I am not an assaulter. "I thought I was a friend and here I am later, just another piece of meat".

"Star Trek" star George Takei denied he groped a struggling actor and model in 1981.

"The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur", Takei wrote, "and I do not know why he has claimed them now".

"He was feeling me up at the same time, trying to get his hands down my underwear. I don't want to do this.' And I pushed him off, and he said, 'OK, fine, '" the former model and actor said. You're in no condition to drive.' I said, 'I don't care I want to go.' So I managed to get my trousers up and compose myself and I was just shocked.

A response from Takei was absent from the initial version of the THR piece, which had at first noted he was traveling and unavailable to comment and now contains an update.

In response, Takei wrote on Twitter that he is "shocked and bewildered" at the accusation, stating that the incident "simply did not occur".
