Toback has been the subject of a Los Angeles Times probe that's detailed the accounts from dozens of women who say he harassed them in incidents that span many years. Toback, the director of films such as Two Girls and a Guy and Seduced and Abandoned, has denied any wrongdoing, claiming he had not met any of the women quoted in the article or that if he had, their meetings were brief.

Rachel McAdams and Selma Blair have both stated in separate interviews to Vanity Fair that Toback, who now has 238 women naming him as their attacker, was inappropriate with both of them during the early stages of their careers.

She recalls him saying: "You know, I have to tell you".

After her Harvard Man audition, Toback called and urged her to his hotel room.

"You have to do this for me", she said he told her. "He started to rub his penis through his trousers and asked, 'Would you f*ck me?'.I went to leave and he got up and blocked the door". He then threatened to kill her if she went public about what happened. "This is all above board somehow".

Actress Selma Blair says disgraced filmmaker James Toback made her take her top off in his hotel room and made a thinly veiled threat to have her kidnapped and tossed into the Hudson River if she didn't keep quiet about their disturbing encounter.

Now, Blair and McAdams have shared their own personal stories via another long story in Vanity Fair.

"I can't believe he did it again", McAdams says her agent responded.

ICICI Bank second-quarter profit falls, lags estimates
Net interest income (NII) or the core income a bank earns by giving loans, increased 33.49% to Rs1,885.09 crore. As on June 30, 2017, the lender's gross NPA was at 13.66 per cent while its net NPA ratio was at 8.67 per cent.

After Toback asked her to read reviews about his work, she recalls thinking, "When are we getting to the rehearsal part?"

Selma then claimed that he began rubbing his genitals through his clothes, telling her: "You have to talk to me... would you f**k me?" I am going to tell you, and this is a promise, if she ever tells anybody, no matter how much time she thinks went by, I have people who will pull up in a vehicle, kidnap her and throw her in the Hudson river with cement blocks on her feet.

McAdams then wrote that Toback got up to use the bathroom, and when he came back informed her that he had "just jerked off" while thinking about her, and asked her to "show me your pubic hair".

As she went to leave, she claims he began rubbing his genitals through his trousers and asked her to have sex with him, telling her, "You have to do this for me".

45-year old Selma Blair shared a story that was very similar to Rachel McAdams', but that unfortunately went a little further and got much darker according to Blair.

She described the meeting that had been set up, explaining: "I arrived at the restaurant and sat down at a table".

One of those women is Rachel McAdams. She also claimed that he did the same thing only a month later. For anyone feeling vulnerable or sensitive after already reading so very many accounts of sexual harassment and assault within the entertainment industry in the last few months, you may want to just stop reading right now. I kept thinking, "This is going to become normal any minute now. We need to start acknowledging what an epidemic this is, and what a deep-seated problem this is". He pulled out the script and said, 'I look at you, and I see that we have a real connection.
