Louis CK accused of masturbating in front of female comedians

Louis CK's Movie Premiere Canceled Ahead of Reported New York Times Story

Comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov recalled how Louis C.K., whose real name is Louis Székely, exposed himself in an Aspen, Colorado, hotel room in 2002 and began masturbating. Suddenly, he asked if he could take his penis out. I can't tell you - I've heard so many stories. "I think the line gets crossed when you take all your clothes off and start masturbating", Ms. Wolov told the Times. She said Louis C.K. had made an inappropriate comment to her and she no longer considers him a friend.

"He asked if we could go to my dressing room so he could masturbate in front of me", she told the Times.

The Times said C.K.'s publicist, Lewis Kay, said the comedian would not respond to the allegations.

Reps for the NY premiere said the event was canceled due to "unexpected circumstances", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film distribution company The Orchard said in a statement that the Thursday cancellation was "due to unexpected circumstances".

A fifth woman, whose story was included anonymously, said she was in her early 20s and working on The Chris Rock Show in the late '90s when C.K., a writer and producer on the show, repeatedly asked her to watch him masturbate and she agreed, because of the workplace culture. There is never a place for the behavior detailed in these allegations. The film was acquired by the Orchard following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

"Daddy" follows a Manhattan-based TV writer-producer (C.K.) whose 17-year-old daughter (Chloe Grace Moretz) falls in love with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). His portrayals are essentially Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. became the latest Hollywood celebrity to be accused of sexual misconduct following a bombshell article Thursday.

The Times story's three listed writers included Jodi Kantor, who also co-wrote the paper's earlier investigative reports on fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, accused by almost 80 women of sexually harassing, coercing, assaulting or raping them in episodes dating back four decades.

That echoes recent high-profile revelations about Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, both of whom stand accused of engaging in years of sexual misconduct that many inside the industry were aware of but said nothing about.

In One Mississippi, a character (played by Notaro's wife, Stephanie Allynne) is sexually assaulted when her boss masturbates in front of her during a pitch meeting.
