The latest big name star to be hit with #MeToo allegations is 72 year old actor Bill Murray. Media Take Out learned that actress Gina Davis is writing a tell all, where she alleges that Bill “assaulted” her.
In her new book, the now 66-year-old Gina alleged that Bill made her feel uncomfortable during an audition for the movie, where he inappropriately touched her. And she also claims that after she spurned his advances, Bill screamed at her in a patronizing fashion in front of “hundreds” of cast and crew members on set.
The explosive allegations come just after it was reported that Bill Murray paid a $100K dollar “hush money” settlement to a woman who claimed the comedian/actor assaulted her on the set of a Disney film.
According to a summary of the book’s allegations by The New York Times, Gina claims that while “in a hotel suite,” which was being used to hold auditions for the crime comedy film, “Murray greets her with something called The Thumper, a massage device he insists on using on her, despite her emphatically refusing.”
“The way he behaved at the first meeting… I should have walked out of that or profoundly defended myself, in which case I wouldn’t have got the part,” Davis said on the infamous hotel suite audition, where she claimed Murray forced her to use “The Thumper” against her will.
“I could have avoided that treatment if I’d known how to react or what to do during the audition. But, you know, I was so non-confrontational that I just didn’t…,” Davis continued.
