Actor Michael Douglas accused of sexual misconduct by former employee

Douglas, a two-time Oscar victor, told Deadline earlier this month that he anticipated an upcoming report would contain an allegation by a former employee that he acted inappropriately in front of her about 32 years ago.

Braudy has spoken publicly for the first time about an incident she claims occurred in the 1980s when she was working in the NY offices of Stonebridge Productions, the company launched by Douglas. At the time, they were brainstorming the creation of an E.T. -like character. Michael ran barefoot after me to the elevator, zipping his fly and buckling his belt.

'He slid down to the floor, unbuckled his belt, put his hands inside his pants and I could see what he was going. I realized to my horror that he was rubbing his private parts. "Within seconds his voice cracked and it appeared to me he'd had an o****m", noted Douglas.

Braudy first told her story on Thursday, to the Hollywood Reporter. 'Hey, thank you, you're good.

Braudy said she asked the actor to stop with the inappropriate comments, but he just laughed "until he got pink splotches on his cheeks".

Braudy told The Hollywood Reporter she was not surprised by the way Douglas had issued his denial. None of it was directed at her; she didn't say it was. I bet she screams in the sack.' I protested, 'Please, don't talk like that.

"She asked Michael for a banana".

She alleged he masturbated in front of her during a one-on-one script meeting in his apartment in 1989 and that she rushed out, feeling humiliated.

The story says that Braudy "claimed she was subjected to sexual harassment by Douglas that included near-constant profane and sexually charged dialogue, demeaning comments about her appearance, graphic discussions regarding his mistresses and more".

In response to the allegations, Douglas, via his lawyer, had an off-the-record phone conversation with the publication's deputy editorial director Alison Brower, editorial director Matthew Belloni (who wrote the piece containing the allegations), and his own team. He called it a "complete lie, fabrication". "That is because at no time, and under no circumstance, did I behave inappropriately toward her".

"Coarse language or overheard private conversations with my friends that may have troubled her are a far cry from harassment", he said.

Douglas previously said of the allegations: "It's extremely painful".

"I was told in the immediate aftermath - that day or the next", says Wolff in an email.

'That rung is something I've only heard about the a year ago. He also suggested that Braudy may be attacking him because she's disappointed her career didn't go the way she was hoping it would. He did a statement.

'He thought he was the king of the world and that he could humiliate me without any repercussions, ' she said. People were frightened for me, ' she said.
