Kevin Sorbo Reveals He Was Sexually Harassed Early in His Career

The ‘Hercules’ star tells podcaster Adam Carolla how he was treated as a model by famous designer Gianni Versace.

Kevin Sorbo says the late Italian designer Gianni Versace sexually harassed him, becoming the latest celebrity to tell his or her sordid Hollywood tale amid the allegations of sexual assault against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The actor, best known for his starring role on the TV series “Hercules,” said on Adam Carolla’s podcast Tuesday that the deceased designer sexually harassed him when Sorbo was working as a model in the early ’90s.

Versace was shot to death in his Miami Beach home in 1997.

“I’ve got my sexual harassment story,” Sorbo said. “[Versace] wanted to meet me because of my height. At 6 foot 3 inches, he wanted me to do fashion shows with these 6-foot tall women.”

Sorbo said he was invited to dinner parties with the fashion designer and one time when he showed up to dine, no one except for Versace was there.

“All of a sudden, his hand goes up my leg,” Sorbo recalled. “[I told him], ‘Dude, you know I’m straight?'”

“This is why I like you. You’re not a girly man. You are a man’s man,” Sorbo said Versace told him.

Hailing from Norwegian ancestry, Kevin was born in Mound, Minnesota, USA. His mother worked as a nurse and his father taught junior high school resulting in a down to earth upbringing that forged the outstanding work ethic Kevin holds to this day. By the time he was in University, Kevin was covering tuition costs with modeling work which swiftly translated into a career in television with his first appearances on Prime Time shows such as Murder She Wrote and The Commish.

In 1993, Kevin emerged as a full fledged international TV star when he was cast as the lead role of Hercules in a series of TV films that would lay the groundwork for the immensely popular series, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Kevin also guest-starred as Hercules in episodes of the successful spin-off series Xena: Warrior Princess as well as providing his voice to the animated Hercules films.

Kevin Sorbo Returns To Fantasy In CONtv’s New Series ‘Mythica’

“There’s nothing wrong with wanting to save the world, through fact or fiction,” he reflected. “The real world needs saving, especially today’s world. I think the reason all of these superhero movies work so well is that the world wants a hero. Most of the world is filled with good people who are tired of the violence, the war and the hate that has terrorized so many.”

Kevin Sorbo just keeps on saving the world. The actor, best known for portraying the title role in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, is back for a new adventure in CONtv’s new epic trilogy Mythica.

The first installment A Quest for Heroes premiered at the end of March, and Kevin – who plays the wizard Gojun, mentor to heroine Marek (Melanie Stone) as she pulls together a team of adventurers to save her endangered sister – sat down with us to talk about his latest role.

“Mythica is in the fantasy genre, like Hercules, but has more of a Lord of the Rings feel to it,” Kevin explained. “They’re both highly successful and fun to watch. There’s always an audience for these types of films; we all love to be carried away to a world that does not exist.”

What keeps drawing him back to these epic adventures?

Facebook blocks ‘I Am A Christian’ film ad

‘Shocked’ producers accuse social-media site of censorship.

Facebook has been accused of censoring a fundraising ad for a Christian movie starring “Clueless” actress Stacey Dash and “Hercules” and “God’s Not Dead” star Kevin Sorbo.

The movie, “I Am A Christian,” tells the story of Meriam Ibrahim, a woman who was arrested in Sudan for converting to Christianity.

Producers are trying to raise $500,000 to help with the costs of making the independent film.

But they hit a wall when they took their fundraising appeal to Facebook.

Their intended message, the Daily Caller reported: “Are you a Christian? We challenge you to change your profile picture to this ‘I Am A Christian’ photo for one week! Change your picture now, and challenge your friends too do the same. Stand up and declare, Yes, I Am A Christian!!!”

Hercules Actor: ‘Being a Christian in Hollywood, You Get Attacked’ (Video)

“I don’t know why Christians get bashed,” he said. “Christians aren’t the ones beheading children and blowing up churches and buses with women and children on board. So, I don’t understand why Christians get attacked and we sit here and protect Muslims, say, ‘oh well, can’t judge them all.’”

Kevin Sorbo, star of the 1990s TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, as well as the 2011 movie Soul Surfer and this year’s highly successful God’s Not Dead, said there is a huge audience for Christian-themed movies and Hollywood would profit if it understood that audience, but he added that if you are a Christian and a conservative in Hollywood, “you will get attacked.”

Sorbo, who sometimes comments on current events, also said he believes there is a hostility towards Christians by some media and they spend an inordinate amount of coverage on topics such as “global warming” instead of focusing on more immediate issues such as the persecution and beheading of Christians by radical Muslims.

In an interview with CNSNews.com about the new movie Let the Lion Roar, in which he plays the 16th century Protestant John Calvin, Sorbo talked about the appeal of Christian movies in the marketplace and how the media are hostile toward people of faith.

Actor Kevin Sorbo: Ferguson unrest let black protesters be the ‘animals’ they ‘truly are’

“The media promotes chaos to boost their pathetic ratings. We should shut them all off and watch clips on the internet only when republished under fair use by a conservative media watchdog group.”

Conservative actor Kevin Sorbo ranted on Facebook this week that African-American protesters in Ferguson had shown themselves to be “animals” and “losers” following the death of slain teen Michael Brown.

“Ferguson riots have very little to do with the shooting of the young man,” he wrote. “It is an excuse to be the losers these animals truly are.”

“It is a tipping point to frustration built up over years of not trying, but blaming everyone else, The Man, for their failures. It’s always someone else’s fault when you give up.”

Sorbo argued that Brown’s death should be a “reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President they voted in has only made things worse for them, not better.”

The former “Hercules” said that the way to end unrest in the city was to “ban” all media who are “nothing more than agitators.”

Kevin Sorbo: Wake Up, Hollywood … It’s Called Show ‘Business’ (Video)

Over and over, we are told that Hollywood’s only agenda is making money. It’s not about ideology or social engineering, it’s about chasing the bucks.

There’s no doubt that Hollywood love things that make money–it just doesn’t love everything that makes money. But that may be changing.

Take, for example, the independent film God’s Not Dead, starring Kevin Sorbo (Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys) as an atheist professor who challenges a Christian student (Shane Harper) to prove the existence of God or fail the course.

Released to theaters on March 21 by Pure Flix Entertainment, the film–now available on DVD, DVD/Blu-Ray combo, digital HD and Amazon Prime Instant Video–cost about $2 million to make. As of June 18, the indie film garnered a worldwide total box office of $62 million.

Stack that up with the worldwide $100 million earned by Heaven is for Real ($12 million budget), about a little boy who glimpses Heaven and returns to tell the tale; the $10.5 million made by the Christian family movie Mom’s Night Out ($4.5 million budget); and the worldwide $67.8 million made by Son of God, the theatrical cut of the New Testament version of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s megahit History Channel miniseries The Bible (under $22 million for the entire 10 hours), you may understand why Tinseltown could be getting sweet on God-centric themes.
