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

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

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.
