Charlotte Lewis, who was in court on Tuesday at the opening of the hearing, said she had been the victim of a "smear campaign" after she accused the filmmaker of sexually abusing her as a teenager. The director rejected the accusation in a 2019 interview with Paris Match magazine in which he cited a 1999 News of the World interview with Lewis in which she was quoted as saying: "I wanted to be his mistress … I probably desired him more than he did me."

She spoke in the Los Angeles offices of Gloria Allred, a high-profile attorney who has also represented women accusing US producer Harvey Weinstein, sitcom star Bill Cosby and former US president Donald Trump.
