A married British Hollywood actor was questioned by the police after a masseur claimed he attempted her ass and rubbed his private parts against her on a date.
The agents interviewed the actor, known in Britain and the United States, with caution late last month in connection with the alleged sexual attack.
It took place at the actor’s house in London, reports the Sunday Times, where the woman would have come to give him a massage.
The alleged victim, a single mother who works for a reputable company, claimed that the alleged assault left her “frozen” and that it took her a long time to realize what had happened.

He explained to the Sunday Times how, on the day of the alleged assault, the actor had tried to kiss her before the treatment began.
“When I started massaging my upper legs, she started asking me to go higher and closer to her crotch and close to her sexual organs,” he said.
When she became visibly upset, the actor, wearing a loose dressing gown, said he “understood”.
But then, he said, “it takes me for life” and starts to “touch me, touch my body, touch my bottom” and “rub on me”.
After the alleged accident, the woman claims that the actor told her he didn’t have enough money to pay for the massage session.
She said she had started working for the actor in the early summer of last year and was soon attending regular dates which earned her £ 500 a month.
They developed a friendship, he explained, and began exchanging “flirtatious” messages in August, which were often sent late at night and sometimes signed with kisses from both. The woman said she had feelings for the actor.
The alleged assault took place in the autumn.

Subsequently, the woman said that they continued to send messages and that she returned to her home for another appointment a week later, hoping that he would apologize and pay the money he owed her.
“I just wanted to make things better and get paid,” he said. “I went there again and said,” He’ll apologize. Everything will be fine. “I really needed to talk to him about what happened because everything was very fast.”
But after arriving, the actor refused to talk about it, encouraged her to leave, and paid what he owed with a £ 40 tip.
The assault was reported to Scotland Yard on January 30th. The man and the masseur were not named.
The Office for National Statistics says that around 20,000 people between the ages of 16 and 59 were victims of sexual violence in 2018, a number that has tripled in recent years due to “improvements in police records and other victims. willing to report. “
“The number of crimes recorded by the police remains well below the number of victims,” they said.
“Among the crimes that come to the attention of the police, many do not progress further through the criminal justice system.”

About half of all sexual crimes reported to the police did not go to court due to “evidentiary difficulties”, they said.
The National Health Service says that victims of sexual violence can contact volunteer organizations including female help, victim assistance, The Survivors Trust or Survivors UK (for men) for support.
Reference centers for sexual assaults are also available, offering medical, practical and emotional support through qualified doctors, nurses and support workers.
