A former Playboy Playmate has accused film director Oliver Stone of groping her breast at a party, after Stone spoke out in defense of embattled producer Harvey Weinstein.
'When I heard about Harvey, I recalled Oliver walking past me & grabbing my boob as he walked out the front door of a party. Two of a kind!,' Carrie Stevens, 48, tweeted on Thursday.
'Two of a kind! When I heard about Harvey, the first person I thought of was Oliver Stone, and it figures...' wrote the June 1997 Playboy Playmate of the Month, who has also acted for film and TV.
'I need to go wash my boob now,' Stevens continued.
A representative for Stone did not immediately reply to request for comment. Stevens did not specify when and where the alleged incident took place, and there was no way to independently confirm her accusation.

Stevens also worked as an actress in television and film in minor roles, including parts on Two And A Half Men and Beverley Hills, 90210
The model's accusation came in response to an interview with Stone in The Hollywood Reporter, in which the film director spoke out in defense of Weinstein, who faces a rising tide of sexual harassment and assault allegations stretching back decades.
'I'm a believer that you wait until this thing gets to trial,' Stone remarked of Weinstein.
Stone was speaking with reporters at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, where he is serving as chair of the event's competition jury.
'I believe a man shouldn't be condemned by a vigilante system. It's not easy what he's going through, either. During that period he was a rival,' Stone said of Weinstein.
'I never did business with him and didn't really know him. I've heard horror stories on everyone in the business, so I'm not going to comment on gossip. I'll wait and see, which is the right thing to do.'
Stone did have business dealings with Weinstein, who acquired his television series 'Guantanamo' in May.

On Wednesday, before making her startling accusation against Stone, Stevens spoke out at length in a Facebook post responding to the mounting Weinstein allegations.
'I have had issues in this business more times than I can count,' wrote Stevens, who has had several film and TV roles after her stint as a Playboy Playmate.
'I never took a stand because sadly, I thought I didn't matter. In this business you don't feel like you matter because you have no power. I didn't realize that I wasn't alone...even women from famous acting industry family's were victimized,' Stevens said.
'I have a lot of great friends I worked with over the years who are my Facebook friends, but I have a few f**king pigs who I was so sweet too...like you asked to see my t*ts in casting and instead of denouncing you as a pig, I denounced myself and quit acting for years,' she wrote.
'I quit doing what I loved because you made me feel bad about the industry.'
