Ellen Page Has Brett Ratner Stories, Too

Ellen Page Has Brett Ratner Stories, Too

Aside from Ratner's outing Page just before "months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea", which she adds "we all recognize as homophobic", she also recalls hearing the director refer to another woman's "flappy pussy" after the latter walked by the monitor.

"I received a call from‎ Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media", Delevingne said.

"I was molested by Goddard, my best friend was raped by him - and this went on for years", Edwards writes.

"He said to me that if I was gay or made a decision to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood", she said. "Making someone feel ashamed of who they are is a cruel manipulation, created to oppress and repress".

Page says Ratner had no regard for her well-being and left her with "long standing feelings of shame".

Ratner's representative is yet to respond to The Telegraph's request for comment.

As readers know, six other women, including actress Olivia Munn and Katharine Towne, have also accused Ratner of sexual harassment - charges he and his camp have denied.

The operation, similar in scale to the one that is now held in Ankara, was in Turkey at the beginning of November. Seven others, whose nationalities weren't revealed, were detained in western Izmir province.

Page also says in her post that she considers making a film with Woody Allen "the biggest regret of my career". Ellen Page joined that group today, opening up on Facebook about the abuse and homophobia that has dogged her nearly since she began acting as a child.

The then-teenager's interaction with the powerful Hollywood mogul was not the first time she says she was put in a compromising position. In an October 20 Facebook post, Melanie Kohler claimed Ratner raped her 12 years ago, writing he "preyed on me as a drunk girl (and) forced himself on me".

Bret Ratner attends the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on February 26, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California.

"He fondled my leg under the table and said, 'You have to make the move, I can't.' I did not make the move and I was fortunate to get away from that situation", she writes. It was a painful realization: my safety was not guaranteed at work. "I made an bad mistake", Page said.

Page says she "was sexually assaulted by a grip months later".

"These abusers make us feel powerless and overwhelmed by their empire", Page wrote. We've learned that the status quo perpetuates unfair, victimizing behavior to protect and perpetuate itself. "We can not look the other way". That's really the thing that all these stories have in common: Men in power abusing their power as other men in power enable them and suppress the voices of their victims. "I want them to sit and think about who they are without their lawyers, their millions, their fancy cars, houses upon houses, their "playboy" status and swagger".
