Actor Geoffrey Rush, 66, is the latest celebrity to reject accusations of misconduct, according to allegations detailed by Australia’s Sydney Theatre Company.

In a statement, STC said it “received a complaint alleging that Mr Geoffrey Rush had engaged in inappropriate behaviour.”

The complaint was made when Rush’s “engagement with the company had ended.”

Rush was last involved with the STC in its season of King Lear, which took place between November 2015 and January 2016. There are no details regarding the allegations, according to the STC or Rush’s statement to ABC Noticias.

“The moment I became aware of rumours of a complaint I immediately phoned and spoke to senior management at the Sydney Theatre Company asking for clarification about the details of the statement, they refused to illuminate me with the details,” Rush said in the statement.

“I also asked why this information was being withheld, and why, according to standard theatre practice the issue had not been raised with me during the production via stage management, the director, my fellow actors or anyone at management level. However, no response was forthcoming.”

Rush’s lawyer, Nicholas Pullen, said in a statement that it is a “great disappointment to Mr Rush the STC has chosen to smear his name and unjustifiably damage his reputation in this way.”

Sydney newspaper the Daily Telegraph, which first published the allegations against Rush, appears to have pulled the story from its website.

At the time of writing, an error code appears in place of the webpage.

In its statement, STC refused to comment further due to “privacy reasons,” and the complainant would remain anonymous.
