Director Tony Scott is notorious for using his position in Hollywood to get women to have sex with him.

Edgar Scherick told me 3/4/02:

Edgar: "There's only one guy in this business I refuse to talk to, and that's the manager of English director Tony Scott, brother of director Ridley Scott. The manager did something to me that's just inexcusable. If I see him, I just walk right by him.

"I brought Tony Scott over from England. We traveled to Chile together. We got close. He was at my house all the time. I wanted to see how he was. I called him up one day. And I got a call back from his little mouse manager who says, 'Edgar, if you want to talk to Tony, you should go through me.' I never spoke to him again. It was an insult of monumental proportions."

Luke: "Did you speak to Tony Scott again?"

Edgar: "No, I didn't. After that, I don't want to talk to him."

From 7/8/91 Newsweek:

"The dynamic duo are referred to as "auteur-producers," and we see them on the set of "Days of Thunder" auteuring the hell out of poor director Tony Scott. In their petulant rage at how they come off, Simpson and Bruckheimer...have lost their sense of humor. They are actually rather engaging chaps, in a Doonesbury kind of way, as they swagger through a world where you either swagger or grovel."

Actress and porn star Ginger Lynn tells Gene Ross:

It was for Beverly Hills Cop 2, Eddie Murphy, a fabulous cast. I was very excited about it. It was to play a part of a cocktail waitress. Basically the character is a silly, ditzy little blond. There are no sexual connotations in this whatsoever. I had an acting coach. I worked for a week on this. I go in, I am so ready, I am so excited. I go in there wearing a white dress with a triangle cut out in the center. I looked cute and sexy but still classy. And I walk in and a woman who's about to take me in asks if I'm wearing any underwear. No. She runs out. I have no clue what's going on. She comes back a few minutes later and says for me to go in. I go in. There's Tony Scott and two other guys in the room. Now this is Tony Scott, Ridley Scott's brother. I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet him. I am so ready for this role. And the first thing out of Tony Scott's mouth is can I get a nude Polaroid? I said I'm not really comfortable with that. I'm trying to keep my cool. He says how about a topless? I said, no, I don't think so, why don't I just read for the role. I'm still trying to be sweet and nice but I'm getting a little bit bothered at this point. I'm talking to Tony, not the assistant, not the other two guys in the room. I read the part and he stops me a couple of sentences in- no, no, no. 'You are really horny. I want you to do this with a sexual edge to it.' So I redo it with a sexual edge. He stops me in the middle: 'You want to sleep with every man that you see. You are a total slut. I want to see that part of you.'

And I just stood there. I got goose bumps on my arms. I couldn't hold back the tears. I started to cry and said I'm sorry, I don't think I'm right for this role. I realized at that moment that they had no intentions. They weren't really auditioning me for the role. They wanted to see Ginger Lynn naked. They were in that whole porn was taboo and it wasn't cool to be a porn star but every guy jerked off to your movies. It was an eye opening experience of what Hollywood was like.
