Rush, 66, was accused of misconduct in a now deleted news report, which stated that Sydney Theatre Company received a complaint against the Oscar-winner, who starred in the company’s adaptation of King Lear in 2015.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor denied the allegations saying his conduct has always been beyond reproach. AACTA acknowledged his decision to voluntarily step aside.
