    Selma Blair Rachel McAdams have alleged that writer and director James Toback sexually harassed them.

LOS ANGELES >> Actresses Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams have added their names to the growing list of women who have come forward to allege that writer and director James Toback sexually harassed or assaulted them.

Speaking to Vanity Fair in an interview published today, Blair describes meeting Toback in a hotel room to discuss a role. There, she says, he propositioned her and said she couldn’t leave until he had release, and threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone.

McAdams says she was 21 when she met Toback for an audition and says Toback told her that he had masturbated to the thought of her and asked if he could see her pubic hair. She says she left the room and was not physically assaulted.

Toback declined to comment on the new allegations to Vanity Fair.
