transparent actress accuses jeffrey tambor sexual harassment

Jeffrey Tambor isn't going to be able to brush off this claim.

As you surely saw, earlier this month, the Transparent actor became the subject of an internal investigation at Amazon after his former assistant, Van Barnes, accused the industry vet of sexual harassment. At the time, Tambor downplayed the controversy by calling the accusations "baseless" and labeled Barnes as a "disgruntled" ex-employee.

Well, it seems Van isn't the only one who has had an issue with Jeffrey's behavior as one of his Transparent costars has since accused him of misconduct. Actress Trace Lysette, who plays Shea on the Amazon TV series, has come forward with claims that Tambor made lewd and sexually suggestive remarks to her on several occasions. In addition to the unwelcome comments, Trace says Jeffrey once pressed up against her during a break in filming in a "sexually aggressive manner"

Specifically, while filming a scene which required Trace to don a salmon-colored lingerie top and matching short-shorts, the celebrated performer remarked:

John Oliver is taking the rest of 2017 off, so he decided to dedicate the entire season finale of Last Week Tonight to the year's most talked about subject: Donald Trump.

Well aware that just the sound of POTUS's name now gives most citizens acid reflux, the Emmy-winning comedian felt it necessary to identify three dictator-like strategies Trump uses to employ his agenda.

These tactics include delegitimizing the media, whataboutism, and trolling — and Oliver had plenty examples of how these "old Soviet propaganda tools" are helping the president launch an assault on "the very concept of truth."

Basically, the entire episode was one giant blooper reel recapping Trump's worst and dumbest moments as the Commander in Chief. A must watch!

Ch-ch-check out the full episode (below) to see Oliver's commentary on what we've learned one year after the presidential election.

Sexual harassment was a regular occurrence in the '60s, misogynistic world of Mad Men. But according to a former writer, it happened behind the scenes of the acclaimed show as well.

Kevin Spacey said he had no recollection of making sexual advances toward Anthony Rapp when the Star Trek: Discovery actor was just 14 years old. That very well may be because Rapp wasn't the House of Cards star's only alleged victim.

Filmmaker Tony Montana is accusing the Hollywood legend of groping him at a Los Angeles hotspot over a decade ago.

In a new interview, the director told RadarOnline he was editing a documentary at the Coronet Pub in 2003 when Spacey walked in with a group of friends.

Montana said he went up to order a drink when the actor approached him and grabbed his "whole package." He remembered:

"I went up to order a drink and Kevin came up to me and put his arm around me. He was telling me to come with him, to leave the bar. He put his hand on my crotch forcefully and grabbed my whole package."

As if that wasn't defiling enough, Montana said the seemingly intoxicated A-lister then said to him:
