Russell Brand accused of sexually assaulting extra on Arthur movie

Russell Brand is facing yet another misconduct allegation - this time he is accused of sexually assaulting an extra on the set of his 2011 movie Arthur.

The woman filed court documents on Friday in New York (local time), alleging Brand exposed himself to her in view of other cast and crew members before entering a bathroom and assaulting her.

She also claimed a member of the film's production crew "guarded the door from outside" during the alleged attack.

"I felt used and abused. Disgusting is the only word," she told UK newspaper Sunday Times in her first interview on the matter.

"I felt like I was being used, that I was an object for his momentary titillation."

The woman also described her "extreme embarrassment, shame and fear" as a result of Brand's actions, and said she had come forward now to "get her power back by speaking up about it".

"If there are other people who have had something like this happen, I want to help them have the courage to come forward too. Because honestly, that's what gave me the strength to do this," she said.

In September, Brand was accused of rape and sexual assault during a seven-year period at the height of his fame as part of a joint investigation by UK outlets The Sunday Times, the Times and Channel 4's Dispatches.

In that investigation, four women accused him of sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013. During that time he had been working at the BBC and Channel 4.

One month later, he was then accused of harassing and stalking a woman numerous times in 2018.

The comedian and actor has previously denied "very serious criminal allegations" and "extremely egregious and aggressive attacks", which he said he "absolutely refutes". He has not yet publicly commented on the new allegation about his conduct while filming Arthur.
