The model, who is based in NY, told Page Six that the incident occurred after Ratner flew her to Los Angeles for a photoshoot in 2008.

"I put my hands over my eyes and said, 'Stop. That's disgusting.' But he wouldn't stop", the model said. "As he is finishing, his assistant in the front seat hands him tissues".

They arrived at the location, but the model said, "I was really uncomfortable".

At least two of the model's friends, who she spoke to immediately after the alleged incident, corroborated the story.

Ratner's lawyer Lynda Goldman said, "Our client categorically denies this outrageous story".

Goldman also provided e-mails from the two Ratner assistants that were inside the vehicle that day writing that they saw nothing inappropriate.

ACTRESS Ellen Page tore into X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner, accusing him of sexually harassing her - and outing her as a lesbian at a time when she was not prepared to come out.


Page, now 30, made the accusation Friday in a Facebook post.

This latest allegation against Ratner comes just one day after actress Gal Gadot reportedly said she would refuse to reprise her blockbuster role as "Wonder Woman" if Ratner is any way attached to the project.

Anna Paquin, who came out bisexual in 2010 and also appeared in X Men: The Last Stand, confirmed Page's claim.

"He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: 'You should fuck her to make her realize she's gay.' He was the film's director, Brett Ratner", Page said.

Ratner has had his ties cut with Warner Bros after six allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced in The Los Angeles Times including one by Olivia Munn who claims that he masturbated in front of her in his trailer when she went to deliver a meal on the set of his 2004 film After the Sunset.

"I was there when that comment was made", Paquin (True Blood) tweeted.
