The number of stories emerging from Hollywood, which tell a distinctly different story to the glamorous one we've been fed for decades, appear to be increasing with every passing day.

With Harvey Weinstein and James Toback dominating the headlines for most of October, focus has now turned to Kevin Spacey and Andy Dick.

Indeed, the latter has just been fired from the set of upcoming movie, Raising Buchanan, due to allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.

The actor and comic, who has appeared in Old School, Zoolander, and Funny People as well as TV shows including Arrested Development, 2 Broke Girls and Love, has spoken out since his dismissal.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore. I do understand that the temperature in the world right now is delicate."

According to The Washington Times, Dick has been accused of groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing and licking and making sexual advances on at least four members of the production.

Dick has made a point of playing down the rumours, saying “I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them."

"That’s my thing," he added. "I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people."
