So many Richard Dreyfuss jokes from Jaws come to mind.
Speaking of Richard Dreyfuss................
NEW YORK -- A writer who worked for Richard Dreyfuss on a TV comedy special in the 1980s said he sexually harassed her for years and exposed himself to her in a studio lot trailer.
Jessica Teich told the New York magazine blog Vulture.com that the actor made continual, overt and lewd comments and invitations after they met at a theater where she worked and Dreyfuss appeared.
Dreyfuss' agent Barry McPherson on Saturday denied the actor ever exposed himself to Teich but that he acknowledged to Vulture other encounters Dreyfuss now realizes were inappropriate.
The revelations were among fresh developments in the sexual harassment scandal that has rolled through Hollywood and other industries.
In 1987, when Teich was working for Dreyfuss on development of an ABC show script, she said she was summoned to his trailer on the set of one of his films and he exposed his genitals to her.
Dreyfuss, 70, said he thought the two were involved in a playful "consensual seduction ritual." He told Vulture that he flirted with Teich but is now "horrified and bewildered to discover that it wasn't consensual."
Teich said she decided to speak out after Dreyfuss tweeted support for his son, Harry, after the younger Dreyfuss went public with accusations that Kevin Spaceygroped his crotch when he was 18.
Richard wrote on Twitter how proud he is of Harry:
I love my son @harrydreyfuss more than I could explain with all the words in the world. And I am so incredibly proud of him right now.https://t.co/iLOxTxPe4nHarry recounted his experience in an article published on BuzzFeed News.
