Yeah, right. You mean this kind of manliness/maleness?
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Susan Bertram said she was 31 when she was assaulted by the actor in 1991. She said that after a day of shooting near Deming, New Mexico, Bertram went to Knepper’s trailer to drop off some clothes. When she leaned over to reach a rack on a far wall, she said Knepper “jumped up,” reached under her dress and grabbed her crotch “as hard as he could.”
She added that Knepper shoved her against the wall and said “I’m going to f— your brains out.” Bertram said she managed to push him off telling the actor, “I’m working, I’m working!” before running out of the trailer, where she says she just fell to her knees in the dirt. When she looked herself over later, Bertram saw that Knepper had ripped the crotch of her tights, and she was bleeding. As she describes it, Knepper “gouged at her vulva during the assault and a piece of her flesh and some pubic hair had been torn out.” Afterward, she “sat there and cried for a while. My dress was torn, I was dirty. I just sat there and got myself together and went back to the wardrobe trailer.”
