Kevin Sorbo, best-known for starring in the 1990s show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, claims he was sexually harassed by the late designer Gianni Versace. Sorbo recently revealed the alleged incident on the Adam Carolla podcast.
This comes at a time when Hollywood seems to be lifted up and shaken like an old rug full of fleas and filth, revealing even more crap under the surface—with both men and women recounting their tales of being sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, and even raped.
Sorbo said he was a young model at the time, and that Versace had hired him for one of his shows. Alone in a dinner with the designer, an unwanted hand allegedly moved up Sorbo’s leg. He told Versace that he was straight, and claimed the man answered him, “This is why I like you. You’re not a girly man. You are a man’s man.”
The actor also quoted Versace as saying, “In life, you must fuck everything. You must do the dog, and the cat, and the boy, and the girl.”
But Sorbo said he stayed friends with Versace—though he never slept with him. He later told The Hollywood Reporter:
He booked me for his fashion shows but I never got his campaign, but I knew the game, just like I know the game of Hollywood…Casting couches have always been around. I don’t play that game, nor do I care to.
Sorbo joins a number of male actors who have told their stories of harassment and assault over the last couple of weeks, including Terry Crews, James Van Der Beek, Tony Goldwyn, and Rob Schneider.
