UPDATED: 3 women step forward with allegations against Piven
In the wake of The New York Times article that detailed alleged non-consensual sex between Harvey Weinstein and multiple women, three more women have come forward alleging sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior by actor Jeremy Piven. He has vehemently denied the claims. One woman, a background actress on the set of Entourage and Playboy Mansion, says Piven followed her into a trailer and pinned her down. She says the encounter turned consensual into something physically aggressive, and she fought him off.
A second woman who worked with Piven in 1996 on the Ellen DeGeneres show, where she was a background extra, says he exposed himself to her in his home and tried to force himself on her. She said she pushed him off and fled.
Piven is currently starring as the lead in Mr. Selfridge, an eight-part fact-based British period drama for PBS’ Masterpiece Classic series. He plays Harry Selfridge, the larger-than-life American businessman who uprooted his family to London in 1908 and opened the opulent and trailblazing department store Selfridges.
