Barnes accused Tambor of verbally abusive conduct and sexual harassment, saying he gave her butt pads and that he steered they need to have an affair. Lysette, who acts as Shea in Transparent, said Tambor made “sexual advances and comments” towards her and stated that “one time it got physical.”
The actor has denied all allegations made towards him. “I adamantly and vehemently reject and deny any and all implication and allegation that I have ever engaged in any improper behavior toward this person or any other person I have ever worked with,” Tambor stated in a press release on the time.
“I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone. But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.”
