Share

A few hours ago, the singer Björk accused him in veiled terms Lars Von Trier of having sexually harassed.

She alleged there had been "whispered sexual offers" and that the unnamed director "wrapped his arms around me for a long time in front of all crew or alone and stroked me sometimes for minutes against my wishes".

Danish director Von Trier, who worked with Bjork on Dancer In The Dark, issued a statement to Danish publication Jyllands-Posten, denying the allegations.

He said: "That is not the case - although we didn't get along, that's a fact".

She added: "The director was fully aware of this game and I am sure of that the film he made after was based on his experiences with me".

Bjork claimed she repeatedly turned down the director's alleged advances, but he "punished" her and branded her hard.

Dancer in the Dark went on to win the Palme d'Or at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival, where Bjork also picked up the best actress prize.

Dancer in the Dark producer and Von Trier collaborator Peter Aalbaek Jensen was surprised by the accusations, telling the Jylannds Posten, "As far as I remember, we were victims".
