British actress Charlotte Kirk, whose affairs with two Hollywood titans ruined her career, has spoken for the first time since its release and after claiming in court that she only submitted to directors' oral sex because her autism made her socially awkward .

Kirk, 28, has been referred to as a "Mughal Slayer" for her affairs with Kevin Tsujihara, CEO of Warner Brothers, and NBC Universal Vice Chairman Ron Meyer.

Both men lost their jobs after their relationships developed.

Both vehemently deny any consideration.

In 2017, Kirk signed an NDA as part of a settlement with Packer, Tsujihara, and Ratner that was part of a $ 3 million deal.

In 2019, under an agreement with Meyer, she is said to have signed another NDA that would pay her $ 2.5 million.

Kirk is currently struggling to undo both gag orders. While she says she can't legally discuss either of the men, she gave Los Angeles Magazine an interview about her career. In it she said she had always loved role-playing games and imagined she was being watched.

An anonymous friend is also quoted as providing more details on her affairs, including the fact that she was "in love" with Australian billionaire James Packer and thought he was her "Prince Charming" after giving her a Rolex worth of $ 65,000.

Kirk's attorney alleged in court documents that she had oral sex with another power player, Brett Ratner, because she was "socially awkward" due to her autism and did not know what else to do.

She has also alleged Meyer forced himself on her and Packer physically prevented her from leaving a hotel room to have sex with Tsujihara – everything the men say is wrong.

In her interview on Friday, she insisted, "I'm not a party girl. I'm really like an old person. My idea of ​​fun is to sit in a nice, cozy place with a cup of tea."

"Because of her difficulties in social situations as a result of her autism, Ms. Kirk submitted to Ratner's power and performed oral sex in the hopes of securing a film role in order to achieve her long-standing dream of becoming a world-famous actress."

Among the only people quoted in the Los Angeles Magazine interview is Rose McGowan, a #MeToo crusader, who says it's not surprising that Kirk's story of denial that the men mistreated her belongs to of sexual assault and harassment claims has changed.

"It's very scary to stand up against the Force. It was scary to me and I had a microphone. Imagine what it was like for Charlotte, for someone who doesn't have a microphone.

“Because these powerful men can destroy you. You will be punished for getting up, ”she said.

Kirk also described growing up in Kent, England, where she was dying to leave as a teenager because she was bullied at school.

“I've always loved playing role-playing games. I don't know if it's normal, but I always imagined I was being watched, "she said.

Being bullied, she said, spurred her on. "It made me want to say," I'm going to prove that you are a mother. "

“I wanted to flee Kent from a young age. I wanted to go to London. I knew it was there, ”she said.

She moved to Paris first to model, then to New York City to act.

After a few months, Kirk said she realized she was on the wrong side of the country and was uprooted to LA. She was 19 years old at the time. When she was in LA in 2011, she first met Meyer.

Kirk is said to have met Meyer at a party for Snow White and the Hunter in London in 2012.

An anonymous friend of hers spoke to the magazine about her relationship with him because she was forbidden to talk about it.

She was 19. He was 66. She saw him as a kind of grandfather figure, a powerful man who took an interest in her as an actress.

"She didn't think he had any sexual desires for her," said the friend.

Meyer was still married to his 25-year-old wife Kelly Chapman at the time.

The friend describes how Kirk, even though she was no one, was sent through to Meyer's office "immediately" when she called to say she had moved to Los Angeles.

He told her whether she was ever in town, says the friend.

She called and was put through immediately. She wasn't a celebrity, but when she called one of the most powerful men in the business he was on the line straight away, ”said the friend.

He invited her to visit him at the Universal property, where he "adamantly flattered" her.

"You have talent, you have the looks, the camera would love you," says the friend, he told her.

And he picked up the phone and called (producers) Jeffrey Katzenberg, Brian Grazer and Joel Silver – three of his close friends – and sang their praises to himself. And of course they said, "Send her over."

After meeting with the directors, she claimed Meyer showed up at her apartment and told her to sleep with him in exchange for the introduction. He denies this.

& # 39; Fueled by extreme pressure and intimidation. Ms. Kirk slept with Mr. Meyer and believed that she had no choice but to submit to his demands, ”her attorney alleged in court documents.

A week later, she says, he forced himself on her again in a hotel room.

Kirk has alleged in court documents quoted by LA Magazine that Meyer forced himself on her during several meetings after introducing her to studio managers and directors. He vehemently denies that they ever had non-consensual sex.

Their affair went public in August after he stepped down from NBC.

Meyer resigned from the network and said he had an affair with a woman without naming her. He and his wife separated in 2018.

Kirk says she was introduced to former Warner Bros CEO Tsujihara by Packer in a hotel room at the Bel Air Hotel in September 2013.

She says he texted her and said, “What are you doing now? I have the unique opportunity for you.

“Come to Bel-Air now. You will never be able to pay me back. The most important man you can meet. & # 39;

When she got there, she said she was shown into the living room of a hotel suite, where "a man in a shirt and dress pants was sitting on a sofa snorting cocaine from a coffee table."

She made the claim in a judicial statement.

She claims that Packer then directed her to follow Tsujihara into one of the suite's bedrooms. Once inside, she said she found him "on the bed, naked, on his back".

Kirk says she texted Packer and told him he wasn't being very nice. He just wants to f ** k & # 39 ;.

She claims he replied and said, "Be cool."

She claims she tried to leave the room, but Packer blocked her way.

I felt trapped, overwhelmed, and terrified of what Mr. Packer might do. I felt powerless to say no, ”she said.

The couple continued to have an affair years later. In text messages, she complained to him: & # 39; Kevin? A two-liner? You have to be kidding me !! & # 39; after a small role in How To Be Single.

In 2015 she also wrote to him in a text: “You are very busy, I know, but when we had sex in this motel, you said you would help me, and if you just ignore me, as you do now, do it made me feel needed. Will you help me like you promised? & # 39;

It's unclear exactly how their relationship ended, but she was entangled in Kirk's relationship with Ratner.

Tsujihara lost his job in 2019 after his lyrics with Kirk were leaked to The Hollywood Reporter.

Kirk says she met Ratner in 2012. He helped her apply for a visa and wrote to the Department of Homeland Security that she was an "exceptional" talent because she could "seamlessly" remember her lines.

She claims he insisted that she have sex with him in exchange – a claim he strongly denies.

Her lawyers say she gave him oral sex

& # 39; wife. Kirk refused to sleep with Ratner, but Ratner insisted and asked Ms. Kirk to have oral sex.

"Due to her difficulties in social situations due to her autism, Ms. Kirk submitted to Ratner's violence and performed oral sex in the hope of securing a film role in order to realize her long-standing dream of becoming a world-famous actress."

It is said he continued to sexually harass her, including asking for "p *** y shots".

His lawyers say the couple never had sex. Ratner was charged with sexual misconduct by several other women in 2017. He has always denied Kirk and even accused her in contemporary texts of trying to blackmail him.

His writing to her was also featured in The Hollywood Reporter.

In them, he condemned her for trying to squeeze roles out of Tsujihara and told her to be more grateful for the help she had been given.

“You told my friend that Newline gave you a piece because of Kevin. You have the big mouth ..

“Call Kevin. I don't do anything for you. You are ungrateful and not appreciative. You said you wanted to speak to the producer at Baywatch, so I made that happen. They didn't even thank me for introducing them, ”he told her in September 2015.

In another he said to her: “What are you talking about? I told you I would get Richard to talk to you. And he did. He is the key to work…. I don't work for you Why are you not so appreciative? & # 39;

In August 2015, he said, & # 39; Stop texting Kevin and saying what he told me? I don't work for him. This is an insult to me. "I'll help you, but your attitude sucks. Like I said, I don't owe you anything. If you owe me something for all the money James paid you. A thank you would be nice."

There was later evidence that she tried to blackmail them all, saying, “Regardless of what you do, blackmail is very illegal (and) in this country. You cannot reverse the extortion you committed because you have sent text and emails asking about these auditions and jobs. "

And when she threatened that it wouldn't hit the fan, he wrote to her about Tsujihara: "He's married, what do you think?"

JAMES PACKER

Kirk met Packer in 2013 through Ratner. They had started a production company called RatPac.

The day after they met, she said Packer – an Australian billionaire – shopped for her on Rodeo Drive and bought her a $ 65,000 Rolex.

Her anonymous friend says she fell in love with him.

"Charlotte thought she had met her charming prince. She fell in love."

The friend says they had an affair for "months" but that she was devastated when he introduced her to Tsujihara. Packer denies the wrongdoing together with the other men.

He, Tsujihara, and Ratner are all represented by attorney Marty Singer, who says Kirk changed their story several times.

In fact, when The Hollywood Reporter first published the story in 2019, she told the publication, “I strongly deny any inappropriate conduct by Brett Ratner, James Packer and Kevin Tsujihara, and I have no claims against any of them.

& # 39; I acknowledge that I had a romantic relationship with James Packer in the summer of 2013 and that I was treated with respect by Mr. Packer and I have no issues with him or any claims against him.

I also confirm that, at the end of the relationship, I sought the advice of Mr. Tsujihara, whom I met from Mr. Packer.

& # 39; Lord. Tsujihara never promised me anything. I also acknowledge that Brett Ratner's friendship helped me out, help me audition and help me find an agent, and I have no issues with him or claims against him.

"I deny that a legal settlement or agreement was reached between myself and Brett Ratner in 2016."
