Jeffrey Tambor Accused of Sexual Assault by 'Never Again' Makeup Artist

Jeffrey Tambor Accused of Sexual Assault by 'Never Again' Makeup Artist”

The actor said he did not remember the latest allegation, but apologised for "inadvertently" causing discomfort.

Speaking to the website Refinery29, a makeup artist, who requested anonymity, said she had not interacted with Tambor during filming.

Two women have come forward over the past few weeks to accuse Tambor of sexual harassment, including "Transparent" actress Trace Lysette and his former assistant.

According to her account, the incident took place on the last day of shooting for the film.

However, Delbridge said that on the last day of the shoot, "I said [to Tambor], "It was very nice to work with you" and he grabbed me out of nowhere and kissed me on the lips". She alleges that Tambor approached her while she was standing in a corner, and he allegedly leaned against her and thrusted back and forth.

In a statement (via Deadline), Tambor responded to the allegation with: "I have absolutely no recollection of anything like this incident ever happening. It was the first time that I'd worked with actors at that level", she adds, noting that she was given the opportunity to do makeup for the likes of Jill Clayburgh, Bill Duke, and Sandy Duncan. While the Emmy Award-winning actor claimed "the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue", he made a decision to not return to the Amazon series. She also says she appreciates Duke because, "He made it a point to let me know that what happened wasn't acceptable". "It was a whole bunch of emotions". For Delbridge, it was her first real job in show business.

"In my mind, he just confirmed that I didn't do anything to provoke it", Tamara shared.

"I know I haven't always been the easiest person to work with", he added.

In the meantime, Tambor, who won two lead actor Emmys for his performance as a transgender woman on Transparent, intimated he would not be returning for a fifth season.

In an ambiguous statement Sunday, Tambor referenced what he calls a "politicized atmosphere" that has afflicted the set.

Delbridge said she chose to speak out following Tambor's dismissal of a previous accuser, which she says angered her.

"His response made me really angry", she said. "This isn't a man-bashing thing". And the word "baseless" is really like him just flipping it off and saying that's nothing.
