PR guru Max Clifford showed a teenage model his penis, saying "isn't it tiny?" – and then posed as an Italian film director to phone her and heap further criticism on the size of his genitals, a court heard yesterday.
He exposed himself twice in his office in London in 1979 or 1980 after the woman went there for interviews about a film role, she told his indecent assault trial.
Giving witness evidence at Southwark Crown Court, she said that at the first interview he exposed himself and held his penis in his hand, before criticising its size, describing it as "useless" and asking: "How can I satisfy a woman with this?"
He also did the same at a second interview, she said.
He twice promised the film's Italian director or producer would call her, but she told the court when a man with an Italian accent called her, she realised it was Clifford himself and there was no film, so she hung up.
Clifford, from Hersham in Surrey, is accused of 11 counts of indecent assault against seven women and girls.
He denies all the charges.
