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 said he would not be answering any further questions beyond his statement made to a packed room of journalists and flashing cameras at his lawyers office on Collins Street.

He has previously said that he had not been informed of the existence or nature of any complaint.
