"He was touching me oddly."

After Ashley Judd bravely came forward to talk about being sexually harassed by a predatory studio exec years ago, Lance Bass is opening up about a similar experience he suffered during *NSYNC's early days.

"This happens to men, too," Bass said while on The Meredith Vieira Show. "When I was 16, 17 years old, there was someone we worked with that was inappropriately touching us. I was even aware at 16 that this guy was a pedophile and he was touching me oddly."

When asked if he told anyone about it, Bass said he never reported it, but did joke about it with his bandmates.

"No. With the guys we would talk about it, joke about it, even though it's not a joking matter. I didn't feel victimized at the time because I was very aware of it."
