Early last week, Michael Douglas alerted the media that he was about to be accused of sexual misconduct and pre-emptively moved to deny the allegation. Now, the woman in question has told her story to the press.
According to 73 year old Douglas, the accusation was going to consist of a claim that he touched himself in front of a female former employee in the early 1980s.
On Thursday (January 18th), a woman named Susan Braudy gave her account to The Hollywood Reporter. She said that the incident occurred during a one-on-one meeting with Douglas at his New York home while she was running the actor’s production company Stonebridge Productions.

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones at a screening of 'Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story' at NeueHouse Madison Square. The film is a Lifetime feature about a female Colombian drug lord of the Medellín Cartel who became a major player in the Miami cocaine trade in the 70s and 80s. - New York City, New York, United States - Friday 1st December 2017
By injecting a steady sense of fun, this slick but mindless action thriller both holds the attention and keeps the audience entertained, even when things get very silly indeed. And because of the tone, the starry actors get the chance to add quirky angles to their characters that remind us to avoid taking anything that happens too seriously. The terrorism plot may strain to be topical and relevant, but it's the corny plotting and lively banter that keeps a smile on our faces.
It's set in London, where former CIA operative Alice (Noomi Rapace) is trying to have a quiet life working with migrants. When one of these, Lateef (Aymen Hamdouchi), appears to be a jihadist planning an attack, she shifts into action mode, consulting her mentor (Michael Douglas) and her MI5 contact (Toni Collette). Then things take a turn, sending her on the run with a shifty ex-marine (Orlando Bloom). With Alice seen as a rogue agent, the American CIA chief (John Malkovich) joins in the hunt. But she's actually the only person who knows the truth: the Muslims are trying to stop a murderous attack that's being orchestrated by someone inside the agency.
Veteran director Michael Apted keeps things moving so briskly that the audience never has much time to worry about the nonsensical details that are flung around in each conversation. The film is a riot of conspiracies, betrayals, codewords, revelations and ticking time bombs, none of which make much sense, but it's a lot of fun to watch a woman taking charge for once. Rapace makes a terrific action hero, tough and sympathetic while still maintaining a sense of mystery.
