Former Playboy Playmate accuses Oliver Stone of sexual assault

Former Playboy Playmate accuses Oliver Stone of sexual assault



While Oliver Stone defended Harvey Weinstein amid more than a dozen allegations of sexual harassment and assault, a former Playboy Playmate accused the “Platoon” director of sexual assault.


Carrie Stevens, who was best known as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in June 1997 but also had several small movie and TV roles, claimed Thursday that Stone had grabbed her breast at a party.


The 48-year-old model told the Daily News that she was at a party at producer Ted Field’s home in honor of Stone more than 20 years ago when Stone walked up to her standing by the front door.


“He was really cocky, had this big grin on his face like he was going to get away with something,” Stevens, who was 22 at the time, told The News.

At that point, Stone “reached out and…honked it like a horn,” she said, describing him as “an immature guy in elementary school who snaps your bra.”


Stevens said she was surrounded by other people, but nobody said anything.

“That’s what’s going on in Hollywood. That’s why things have to change. He’s Oliver Stone. Nobody’s going to say anything,” she told The News.


“He walked up like he was entitled to grab anything he wanted. He did it because he wanted to.”

Stevens said she never saw Stone again, but that his actions aren’t atypical in Hollywood. She also doesn’t think she was his only victim.


“If they do it to one, they’ll do it to as many as they can get away with,” she told The News.


Stevens’ accusation came in response to Stone’s comments about Weinstein at the Busan International Film Festival Thursday.

Stone said Thursday that Harvey Weinstein “shouldn't be condemned by a vigilante system” amid more than a dozen accusations of sexual harassment and assault.

“I’m a believer that you wait until this thing gets to trial,” Stone said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“I believe a man shouldn’t be condemned by a vigilante system. It’s not easy what he’s going through, either. During that period he was a rival. I never did business with him and didn’t really know him. I’ve heard horror stories on everyone in the business, so I’m not going to comment on gossip. I’ll wait and see, which is the right thing to do.”


Weinstein has been accused of harassing and assaulting multiple women over several decades, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd and Cara Delevingne.


A rep for Stone did not immediately return a request for comment.
