Geoffrey Rush Is Now Suing The Daily Telegraph For Defamation

Geoffrey Rush says claims of sexual misconduct are false and untrue

The allegations date back to a Sydney Theatre Performance of King Lear from 2015.

His lawyer Nicholas Pullen, of HWL Ebsworth Lawyers, said the proceedings were only filed on Friday.

The Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush has launched defamation proceedings against the Sydney Daily Telegraph, accusing the paper of splashing "spurious claims with bombastic titles on their front pages".

He said the claims had "created irreparable damage" and were "extremely hurtful" to his family and colleagues in the industry.

Actor Geoffrey Rush is suing Sydney's Daily Telegraph for defamation over claims of alleged inappropriate behaviour with female actor in a Sydney Theatre Company (STC) production.

"The situation is intolerable and I must now seek vindication of my good name through the courts", Rush said.

Rush has denied the allegations since the first article was published but the news conference on December 8 is the first time the actor has publically spoken on the issue.

"We don't have our have a trial date yet, this has only been set up this afternoon".

Rush fronted media for the first time since The Daily Tele ran the allegations, speaking from the building of his legal counsel. The theatre company said it complied "in the interest of the complainant's health and welfare".

Last week, Rush voluntarily stepped down as president of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television until the matter is resolved.

A company spokesperson said the complainant requested the allegation be dealt with confidentially, and did not want Rush notified or involved in any investigation.

"Geoffrey Rush is not Harvey Weinstein and I have had more than a handful of interactions with Harvey Weinstein", Griffiths told the ABC on the red carpet.
