Selma Blair, Rachel McAdams accuse James Toback of harassment

Actresses Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams have added their names to the massive list of women accusing director James Toback of sexual harassment.

The stars — who join actress Julianne Moore and NBC host Natalie Morales, among more than 200 others — shared their horrific encounters with the slimy "The Pick-Up Artist" director with Vanity Fair, just one week after the Los Angeles Times broke the story exposing Toback's alleged misconduct.

Blair, 45, revealed that she encountered Toback, 72, in the late '90s during a business meeting arranged by her representatives.

Despite agreeing to meet in a hotel restaurant, Blair says a hostess informed her upon her arrival that Toback wouldn't be coming down, and she'd have to meet him in his room in order to discuss his upcoming project "Harvard Man."

When the "Cruel Intentions" star arrived in Toback's hotel room, she says, he immediately began making uncomfortable comments, including a bizarre offer to have her estranged father killed.

Still, Blair was put at ease by the fact that Toback told her they had a connection, something she'd never heard before.

"I really believed that when he started to talk…that he was going to be my mentor," she told Vanity Fair.

Things allegedly took a turn, though, about 40 minutes into their meeting when he ordered her to perform a monologue naked — despite the fact that the scene took place in a courtroom.

She obliged, taking off her sweater, but quickly put it back on after he commented, "Wow, you need a lot of work."

As she went to leave, she claims he began rubbing his genitals through his pants and asked her to have sex with him, telling her, "You have to do this for me. You cannot leave until I have release."

Like many women who have come forward with stories about Toback, Blair says he asked to rub up against her leg and have her pinch his nipples while staring into his eyes.

"I felt disgust and shame, and like nobody would ever think of me as being clean again after being this close to the devil," she said.

The actress says he then threatened to have her kidnapped and thrown into the Hudson River if she ever spoke up about the encounter.

McAdams, meanwhile, was a 21-year-old theater student in Toronto when she was asked to audition for "Harvard Man."

She did, and the audition went well — so well, in fact, that Toback allegedly asked her to meet with him in his hotel room that same night to "workshop."

Just like with Blair, McAdams' meeting with Toback quickly turned sexual as he told her he had masturbated "countless" times since first seeing her earlier that day.

The "Mean Girls" actress, 38, says he demanded she read aloud passages from reviews of his movies, and disappeared to the bathroom — only to return to tell her he had just masturbated and wanted to see her pubic hair.

McAdams says she left before things escalated further, but still feels "shame" for not escaping sooner.

"I just kept trying to normalize it — thinking, 'This has to be some weird acting exercise. This is some kind of test. I just have to show that I am brave and this does not bother me and nothing can shake me,'" she recalled to Vanity Fair. "I really was frozen. My brain was not catching up."

Toback has denied the allegations against him, citing the fact that it would be "biologically impossible" for him to have taken part in such lewd behavior for so long because of his diabetic and heart conditions. He also claimed to have no recollection of any of his accusers.

Blair says it was Toback's curt dismissal of his accusers' stories that got her blood boiling enough to want to finally speak out.

"When he called these women liars, and said he didn't recall meeting them and that the behavior alleged could not be attributed to him, I just felt rage and an obligation to speak publicly now," she said.

The "Legally Blonde" actress previously hinted that she'd had a negative encounter with Toback on Twitter, when she retweeted a story titled, "James Toback Gets Us, He Truly Gets Us in 'The Private Life of a Modern Woman," with the response: "Ironic" several weeks ago.
