The stories accused rush of misconduct during his time at the Sydney Theatre Company during a production of King Lear in 2015 and 2016. The company has released no details of the complaint other than it alleged "inappropriate behaviour " while Rush was an employee and was not raised until after he had left.
Geoffrey Rush has filed defamation proceedings against The Daily Telegraph, which published allegations the actor behaved inappropriately towards a female cast member in a Sydney Theatre Company (STC) play.
The Daily Telegraph has made false, pejorative and demeaning claims splattering them with unrelenting bombast on its front pages.
"The Daily Telegraph accurately reported the Sydney Theatre Company received a complaint alleging that Mr Geoffrey Rush had engaged in inappropriate behaviour", he said.
Rush's lawyer Nicholas Pullen said police had not been in contact with his client over the allegations.
Rush stepped down from his role as President of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts on Saturday in the wake of the report. A court date is yet to be set.
The veteran actor received acclaim for his breakthrough performance in the 1996 film Shine, which earnt him an Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA.
He's went on to become one of Australia's biggest and most respected Hollywood exports, starring in Shakespeare in Love, Elizabeth and The King's Speech.
