The 67-year-old actor sent a statement to The Hollywood Reporter Thursday night, saying in part:
“The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades ago, are categorically false. These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago – No always mean No – That is a line I do not cross. The encounters were consensual.”
