Les Moonves, the former CBS head who resigned earlier this year amid sexual misconduct allegations, was hit with a new accusation by an actress. The alleged encounter between Moonves and actress Bobbie Phillips took place in March 1995 after her talent manager, Marv Dauer, set up a meeting, according to The New York Times.
The actress went to the Warner Bros. studio in Burbank, California for her sit down with Moonves, who at the time of the meeting was the president of Warner Bros.Television. Phillips claimed to The Times that when she turned around to look at Moonves, she realized that he’d unbuttoned his pants and exposed himself to her.
In response to The Times’ report, Moonves said he “strongly believe[s] that the sexual encounter with Ms. Phillips more than 20 years ago was consensual.” Moonves resigned from his post in September as CBS Chief Executive Officer after multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct in a pair of New Yorker articles authored by Ronan Farrow.
