Executive producers Vincent Cirrincione and Halle Berry pose at a screening in this 2005 file photo.Nine women have coem forward to say Cirrincione made unwanted sexual advances toward them over the course of two decades.The earliest allegation of inappropriate conduct was in 1993, and the most recent in 2011.Cirrincione said in a statement that he accepts responsibility for pursuing sexual relationships but denies allegations that he sought sexual favors in exchange for representing actresses.“We live in a time where men are being confronted with a very real opportunity to take responsibility for their actions. I have had female clients and employees my entire career in this industry.A fifth actress said he masturbated in front of her in his office during the years he managed her.
To the women, Cirrincione had represented their best hopes of breaking in and making it in a fiercely competitive industry rife with racial discrimination. Black women starred in just two films; white women starred in 44.One of the actresses said that during her audition for Cirrincione in the early 2000s, he told her she reminded him of Berry when Berry was starting out.“Of course that was like your dream to have Halle Berry’s manager say, ‘Oh, my God, you remind me of Halle,’ ” said the woman, who is now a fashion and lifestyle blogger.She said Cirrincione called her after the audition to tell her she wasn’t quite ready for his agency, but he would help her get new headshots and appear with her at industry events to introduce her to the right people — on the condition that she sleep with him once a month.“He said it so matter-of-factly, like we were just going to get coffee,” she said.Soon after her arrival at the hotel, Cirrincione’s phone rang. He put the famous actress on speaker as Lamison listened in silently, in awe — thinking that perhaps Cirrincione could steer her own acting career to Hollywood success in an industry with few leading roles for African-American actresses like herself.When the call ended, Lamison began reciting a poem she had written.
Another actress who met Cirrincione in 2005 during the Los Angeles premiere party of , featuring Henson, said the manager invited her to audition for him.
