A woman described as a "struggling actress" filed a sex harassment lawsuit against actor David Boreanaz Thursday, claiming he made unwanted sexual advances while offering her a role on his TV series "Bones."

Kristina Hagan's suit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, said she was working as an extra in an episode of the crime drama in August 2009 when Boreanaz approached her and said he had "the ability to make things happen for her."

A statement from a representative for Boreanaz called the accusations "totally fabricated and absurd."

"There is no validity to this lawsuit," the statement said.

"She is an actress who is working towards her goals, but who like many other actresses has not yet been able to achieve them," Hagan's lawyer, Gloria Allred, said. "For that reason she is extremely vulnerable as many actresses are in Hollywood."

Allred said she also represents another woman who has filed a charge of sexual harassment in employment against Boreanaz.

Boreanaz, 41, stars in the series and is also an executive producer.

"She is informed and believes that he has used his 'star power' and position to entice women who have a desire to act on the show 'Bones' by promising or implying that he could get them work on the show and then using their vulnerability to obtain sexual favors from them," Hagan's suit said.

The lawsuit described several instances in which Hagan alleged Boreanaz tried to grope and kiss her.

"Ms. Hagan did her best to deter his sexual advances, but did so in such a manner that she would not offend him since he had offered to assist her in her acting career," the suit said.

The harassment also involved cell phone text messages from Boreanaz to Hagan, including one with a photo of the actor's genitals attached, the suit said.

"Ms. Hagan was offended by the text messages but nevertheless wanted to maintain a relationship with him because it was very important to her to secure employment as she was a struggling actress," the suit said.

Hagan was never given a role in the show, according to the suit.

The lawsuit claims that Hagan has suffered "emotional and psychological distress, wage losses, and loss of benefits" because of the harassment.

It also names as defendants several production companies involved in the show, including 20th Century Fox Television.

Well, he IS a vampire, after all...

How is this NOT on the internet? I was under the impression that if you have a nekkid celeb picture, the first thing you do is post it.

Gloria Allred is her lawyer, she's a bigger media whore then Kate Gossling.

Sassalicious and AURaptor have got a point.

Although, the fact that there's no leaked picture doesn't necessarily mean no harrassment happened, as this is a relatively common occurrence in Hollywood. And Boreanaz has started to get a bit of a reputation as a lady killer, especially with the recent cheating allegations. Which these two girls might also be trying to capitalize on.

<_< I'm going to doubt the sexting photos exist until it's confirmed, but it wouldn't surprise me if other stuff happened, in some form or another.

I mean, I heard a story once that, as a joke, Nathan Fillion took a picture of some of the female cast members on Firefly when they were sunbathing on his camera phone. Fox Executives freaked out, and possibly understandably; imagine if he had taken a picture of a female extra who decided she could make some money off a lawsuit over it. Yikes. One of the nicest guys ever, with a permanently tarnished reputation.

These stories often have two sides. So don't be quick to condemn either one.

I think harassment and no harassment scenarios are equally likely.

However, I just want to see a naked picture of David Boreanaz.

If it's just a pic of the below the waist portion how would they prove it's him? I don't think they do line ups like that.

However it seems like if they can get the evidence that the messages were sent from him to her and one has a pic like that then it seems pretty open and shut.

EXACTLY!

That's the funny thing about movies. You can see them the first night they come out, or later that year, or a couple years down the road. Hell, you can even watch a movie 10 - 20 or gasp...30 years after they come out!

I hear tell of some movies that came out so long ago, they're actually in black and white!
