“Hercules” actor Kevin Sorbo alleged famous fashion designer Gianni Versace sexually harassed him. The allegation was made on Adam Carolla’s podcast Tuesday, which came after the pair discussed the dozens of women who have accused movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, harassment and rape.

“I’ve got my sexual harassment story,” Sorbo said, recalling an incident from 1984.

Before he became famous for playing the lead on the television series, “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” Sorbo was a model.

“He wanted to meet me because of my height. At 6-foot, 3-inches, he wanted me to do fashion shows with these 6-foot tall women,” Sorbo said about the Italian designer.

Versace invited the actor to a party where A-list stars like opera star Luciano Pavarotti, actress Sophia Loren and Richard Gere were in attendance.

But things didn’t stay platonic. “All of a sudden, his hand goes up my leg,” Sorbo alleged. “Dude, you know I’m straight?” he remembered telling Versace.

“This is why I like you. You’re not a girly man. You are a man’s man,” Versace supposedly said. “In life, you must f--- everything. You must do the dog, and the cat, and the boy, and the girl.”

Sorbo, 59, rebuffed Versace’s attempt, even though the designer wanted to “build a bridge” between them.

“The bridge was never built, and I never got the campaign,” Sorbo said. “I got four free dinners.”

In the end, Sorbo stayed friends with Versace.

“He booked me for his fashion shows but I never got his campaign, but I knew the game, just like I know the game of Hollywood,” Sorbo told The Hollywood Reporter in an exclusive statement Wednesday. "Casting couches have always been around. I don't play that game, nor do I care to.”

Versace was killed at his Miami Beach mansion in 1997. His sister, Donatella, famously took over the company after he died.

In the description for the podcast, the show did not mention Sorbo's sexual assault allegations. “Kevin Sorbo and Sam Sorbo are in studio next, and Adam chats with them about their uplifting new film, and their fairly large theatrical release. Adam asks Kevin about his views on religion, and the guys talk further about the making of the movie,” the explanation says.

Sorbo didn’t post a statement on social media about what he said on Carolla’s podcast either. Instead, he peddled his film, “Let There Be Light.”

“Hollywood used to make wonderful morally-steeped films, but those days are gone. Today, they seem to go out of their way specifically to show people of faith in a very negative light. The villain is often the priest, the cardinal, the pastor,” he wrote on Facebook Tuesday. “But Hollywood forgets that the majority of Americans believe, and the great success of faith-based films is proof that people yearn for stories that give them an honest spiritual environment, that make them feel at home.”

The film is slated to open in theaters Friday.
