Anna Paquin on Ellen Page's claims about Brett Ratner: "I was there".

Anna Paquin on Ellen Page's claims about Brett Ratner:

The Juno actress, who came out as gay in 2014, has now had her claims backed up by co-star - True Blood's Anna Paquin - who told her Twitter followers she was privy to the incident. That's disgusting.' But he wouldn't stop.

'As he is finishing, his assistant in the front seat hands him tissues'.

The model added that she "was really uncomfortable" when they arrived at the location.

Two of her friends corroborated the story, saying that the model told them about the incident shortly after it occurred.

The model did not go to the police because she thought no crime was committed.

Following the allegations, Ratner's attorney, Lynda Goldman, told the website that her "client categorically denies this outrageous story".

Goldman provided e-mails from two of Ratner assistants who said they were in the vehicle that day and nothing untoward happened.

ACTRESS Ellen Page tore into X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner, accusing him of sexually harassing her - and outing her as a lesbian at a time when she was not prepared to come out. "I was eighteen years old", Page, 30, said in the lengthy Facebook post, reports the New York Post.

This latest allegation against Ratner comes just one day after actress Gal Gadot reportedly said she would refuse to reprise her blockbuster role as "Wonder Woman" if Ratner is any way attached to the project.

"'You should f - k her to make her realise she's gay.' He said this about me during a cast and crew "meet and greet" before we began filming, X Men: The Last Stand".

Page, who played Kitty Pryde in the film, said she wasn't the only woman who had to put with Ratner's abuse.

Earlier this week, comedian Louie CK admitted that he had masturbated in front of a number of different women over almost a two decade period, saying allegations made in The New York Times exposing the story were 'all true'.

Ratner, who has been accused by six women of sexual misconduct, also made degrading comments about women on the set, according to Page.
