Dating jeremy piven
Three more women are coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior dating back decades against former Entourage star Jeremy Piven after the actor vehemently denied similar claims from three other women in a November story by Buzz Feed News.
In 1985, a background actor said Piven followed her into a trailer on the set of a film and pinned her down on a couch.
Laura Loftus, a childhood friend of Mc Cain Olson's, told Buzz Feed News that Mc Cain Olson called her after the incident occurred in 1985 and told her what Piven did.
Another friend, who asked to remain anonymous, also told Buzz Feed News that Mc Cain Olson brought the incident up to her when they first became friends about 15 years ago.
As he did in November’s story, Piven vehemently denied all the women’s claims in this article, with his lawyers describing them as “works of fiction” and this story as being “conjured up in an opportunistic effort to capitalize on the current media storm in order to obtain attention and/or money.”His attorneys noted that he previously provided Buzz Feed News with the results of a polygraph test, which the examiner said he had passed, in which Piven said he’d never grabbed a woman’s genitals without her consent or used force to take sexual advantage of a woman.
In a written statement for this story, Piven said, “These allegations, which in one case goes back more than 30 years and the two others more than 20 years ago, are false. But he did it.” In the months before she started her senior year of high school in 1985, Mc Cain Olson landed what she thought was the coolest summer job in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn: being an extra on the set of a movie.
Shaken, she said she was afraid to tell anyone else on set because she was “just an extra” and did not want to lose her job or cause a problem as Piven didn’t “bother” her again.“I saw him around after because we were on the same set but he never spoke to me,” she said.
In 1996, a background extra on the set of Ellen said a romantic encounter with Piven turned physically aggressive and left her feeling threatened, after he exposed himself to her in his Los Angeles home.
Another woman said the actor pushed her against the wall in a Montreal hotel room around 1994 and tried to force himself on her.
While Mc Cain Olson told people in her private life about the incident, she also said that she didn’t publicly discuss what Piven did to her as she felt the culture around how women dealt with sexual harassment was vastly different in the 1980s.
She said it was “almost expected you’d have to fight somebody off” at some point, and that she didn’t have the language or understanding to describe the incident.“In those days, sexual assault was rape and I was like, ‘Well, he didn’t rape me,’” Mc Cain Olson said.
As he walked her to her car so she could follow him home, he kissed her on the sidewalk.
