We knew that Sebastian Bear-McClard cheated on Emily Ratajkowski, but it turns out that the Hollywood producer has also been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, per Variety. In 2016, Bear-McClard DM’ed a 17-year-old girl to arrange a meeting to speak about including her in the Safdie Brothers’ film, “Good Time,” which he was also producing. The woman, now 24, told the outlet that she ended up naked in front of several male crew members on her day of filming. “[I] was utterly stunned and felt terrified,” she said, of the traumatic experience.
On a separate occasion, this time during his marriage, Bear-McClard again leveraged his status as a Hollywood filmmaker to target another woman on Instagram. This anonymous woman explained that she’d met Bear-McClard at the apartment he’d shared with Ratajkowski in the hopes of discussing her career, though that wasn’t what happened next. “Sebastian and I started kissing,” she said. “Things escalated and then, without asking for my consent, Sebastian inserted himself inside me without using a condom.”
It’s unclear whether Ratajkowski knew of these specific instances when she filed for divorce. In 2023, the “Gone Girl” actor spoke on the “Going Mental with Eileen Kelly” podcast about how she’d struggled to end things with Bear-McClard. “I didn’t have the courage to leave for a long time. I was really, really unhappy,” she shared. No doubt fans are proud of the model-author for taking action to lead her best life — without Bear-McClard.
