  • Yael Stone accuses Oscar victor Geoffrey Rush of sexual misbehaviour

"This, most certainly, has never been my intention".

Rush said he abhorred any behaviour that might be considered as harassment or intimidation.

"I also understand it might be confusing and look odd that I maintained a friendship with someone for so long who treated me in a way that made me feel uncomfortable", Stone told The Times.

When asked by Sales what she meant by Rush propositioning her in a "physically intimate way", Stone explains: "The invitation was an invitation to physical intimacies and it was done so in a physically intimate manner: his mouth was very close to my ear, I could feel his lips up against my body".

Stone said she believed she said words to the effect of "Bugger off, Geoffrey". And never, ever wanting to offend him.

'There was no part of my brain considering speaking to anyone in any official capacity. This was a huge star.

She added: 'What were they going to do?

On one of those evenings, Geoffrey in a very intimate - very physically intimate way - invited me to come home to his accommodation with him.

Scurll was alone in the ring during the television tapings when The Kingdom came down to start something with him. Jenny Rose came out, next in line for the title on 1/13, and they ended up agreeing to a Street Fight.

Stone claims Rush danced naked in front of her in their shared dressing room, used a mirror to watch her while she showered and sent her erotic text messages.

However, Stone says that she still holds the actor in high regard, and acknowledges that her accounts of his alleged behavior may seem inconsistent with how she remained amiable colleagues with Rush, whom she viewed as a mentor. Stone was just 25 years old at the time. She told the Times that Rush had written to her and apologised the next day, calling it "uncalled-for but had to". "I've factored that into my calculations and if that happens, I think it's worth it". I didn't know how to stop the texts. I don't want to be hard. If I could talk to my younger self I would say your work is enough. "I don't want to destroy my career".

Rush is now involved in a defamation case against Australian tabloid newspaper The Daily Telegraph over a series of articles published that alleged Rush behaved inappropriately towards a female castmate of a 2015 production of Shakespeare's King Lear.

In 2017 Rush began court proceedings against Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph over "false and demeaning" claims of inappropriate behaviour towards a female cast member on the set of King Lear in 2015.

Rush has vehemently denied the accusations.

Stone said that, at the time, she didn't even consider addressing her allegations with those in charge of the production.

During her testimony in November, Norvill gave more details of how Rush allegedly behaved around her. And we had become close over the years.

"I wrote in the conclusion of that email, that this was written in the spirit of healing and that I hoped we could come together privately and work through it".
