“Entourage” star Jeremy Piven is being accused of sexual misconduct by three more women, dating from 1985 to 1996, according to BuzzFeed.

Three women came forward and spoke with BuzzFeed for a story published on Saturday. In it, a background actor working on a film with Piven in 1985 said the actor followed her to a trailer and pinned her to a sofa. Another woman told BuzzFeed that in 1994, Piven pushed her against a wall in a Montreal hotel room and tried to force her to have sex. And a third woman who was an extra in 1996 on the sitcom “Ellen” — which Piven starred on at the time — said a romantic encounter with the actor got physically aggressive and left her feeling threatened after he exposed himself.

TheWrap reached out to Piven for comment but his reps have yet to respond.

Piven denied the allegations to BuzzFeed, as he did to similar allegations in November when he called the women’s accounts “works of fiction,” and adding that BuzzFeed’s story was “conjured up in an opportunistic effort to capitalize on the current media storm in order to obtain attention and/or money.”

Last November, after a number of women came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct, Piven voluntarily took a polygraph test. When asked questions about the allegations, he denied, and the results said there were “no signs of deception.”

“These allegations, which in one case goes back more than 30 years and the two others more than 20 years ago, are false,” Piven told BuzzFeed for the current round of accusations. “As evidenced by the lie detector test I took and passed, I have never forced myself on anyone, nor have I ever exposed myself or restrained anyone against their will. To the contrary, if any woman ever said no, I stopped.”

Attorneys for the actor have threatened legal action against BuzzFeed News over their current story.
