Geoffrey Rush claims that he & # 39; DISABLED & # 39; after he has the label & # 39; King Leather & # 39; has got – and maybe will never work again

Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush, who claims millions of damages in his defamation, may never work again, his lawyer told a judge in Sydney.

& # 39; There is a considerable risk that Mr. Rush will not work again, & # 39; said Bruce McClintock QC in his statements about the amount of compensation awarded when the actor wins his federal lawsuit.

The actor's telephone can not call job offers and he will never regain his trust and want to work again, the barrister said.

After a three-week hearing, the high-profile affair ended on Friday, when Justice Michael Wigney said he would like to write his verdict tomorrow & # 39; but his workload did not make him the decision this year.

Rush, 67, continued The Daily Telegraph's publisher Nationwide News and journalist Jonathon Moran on two articles and a newspaper poster published in 2017.

They had to deal with a claim that he had behaved inappropriately with a co-star – later it turned out that it was Eryn Jean Norvill – during a production of King Lear at Theater Company in 2015 and 2016.

Rush denied the accusation and said that the Telegraph had portrayed him as a pervert and a sexual predator.

The newspaper denied that these meanings were conveyed by the material but argued that they were largely true after Norvill – who did not take part in the articles – agreed to testify.

She testified that Rush had made touchy gestures and sexual innuendo to her during rehearsals, stroking her backstage backstage and deliberately touching her chest while mourning the dead body of her character during a performance.

With reference to the past and future economic losses on Friday, McClintock said: "What they have done to my client has prevented him from working."

& # 39; It does not take much of a blot to destroy a career, & # 39; he said.

Tom Blackburn SC, for the newspaper and Moran, said that "millions of dollars & # 39; are claimed by Rush, but he has not provided any evidence or claimed that he is unable to work or that he is not receiving any offers.

& # 39; We do not know if he has received (film) offers and if he has rejected them, & # 39; he said.

If Rush says he is entitled to substantial damage, the actor must at least tell the judge something like "I am so damaged, I can not work", but this has not happened, Blackburn said.

& # 39; The only evidence was that other people gave their opinion about his mental state, & # 39; he said.
