'Bones' extra sues David Boreanaz over alleged sexual harassment

July 23, 2010 |  9:31 am

David-boreanaz "Bones" actor David Boreanaz is facing a sexual harassment lawsuit filed on behalf of aspiring actress Kristina Hagan, attorney Gloria Allred announced Thursday. 

Hagan, who was an extra on "Bones," alleges that Boreanaz started harassing her in August 2009 via sexually inappropriate text messages and that there were sexual encounters in his car and trailer.

TMZ has details of the lawsuit, which alleges Boreanaz told Hagan repeatedly that he was trying to get an acting role for her; the role never panned out. 

Allred's statement characterized Hagan as "an actress who is working towards her goals" but "has not yet been able to achieve them. For that reason she is extremely vulnerable as many actresses are in Hollywood."

Boreanaz's reps told TMZ the allegations are "totally fabricated and absurd."

Allred's statement indicates her office represents another woman who has filed a charge of sexual harassment against Boreanaz and has asked the state to investigate. Another Allred client notable for her past with the actor: Rachel Uchitel, a.k.a. Tiger Woods mistress No. 1.

In May, Boreanaz went public about his infidelities after an alleged extortion threat from a woman -- not Uchitel -- with whom he had a short-term affair. Speaking about his marriage to Jaime Bergman, he told People, "We're working on repairing what has been damaged so badly."
