Andy Dick has been fired from a movie over allegations of sexual misconduct on set.

Dick confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he was let go over allegations of groping, which he denies, as well as other inappropriate behavior.

Sources told the publication that Dick made unwanted advances to four members of the production, including grabbing their genitals, kissing and licking them, and making sexual propositions.

Dick said it is possible that he kissed and licked people on the set of the indie film, Raising Buchanan, and confirmed making verbal advances.

“I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore,” Dick said. “Of course I’m going to proposition people. I’m single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date. They can just say no, and they probably did and then I was done.”

“I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them,” he added. “That’s my thing — I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It’s me being funny. I’m not trying to sexually harass people.”

Dick has struggled with substance abuse over the years, but claimed to be sober, despite claims he appeared intoxicated on set.

“I overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy,” he said. “That didn’t make me rape people.”

He also said the filmmaker could have been upset that he was talking about Harvey Weinstein in a way that could be seen as defending him. Dick and Weinstein made two films together. He didn’t elaborate on what he said about the producer, who has been accused of sexual assault and rape by multiple women.

“They were so incensed by what I was saying. People are so sensitive,” Dick said.

“I won’t do it anymore,” Dick added. “I won’t lick anyone’s face anymore.”
