Jeremy Piven was spotted running errands in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The actor, 52, appeared to be alone as he made his purchases on the American Thanksgiving holiday.
It comes as a fifth woman has come forward to accuse the Entourage and Mr. Selfridge star of sexual assault.
Piven has denied all allegations made against him.
Solo outing: Jeremy Piven was spotted running errands in Los Angeles on Thursday, one day after a fifth woman claimed he’d groped her on the set of Entourage in 2009
The bearded actor was casually dressed in a stripy t-shirt and black pants with dark deck shoes.
He wore sunglasses and carried a cup of coffee to go.
On Wednesday, Anastasia Taneie accused Piven of groping her when she worked as a 23-year-old background actress on Entourage in 2009.
‘I was scared at the time nobody was going to believe me. I didn’t want to make a scene. I just wanted to go home,’ she told BuzzFeed News. ‘It was the most horrible thing I’ve ever experienced.’
Piven denied the accusations and pointed to a lie detector test from November 13 which found him innocent of groping anyone after four other women including actress Ariane Bellamar accused him.
He said: ‘Let me be absolutely clear, this simply did not happen. I would never force myself on a woman. I cannot speak as to why a person would create a story like this.’

Taneie, now 30, says that Piven pushed her up against a wall during the alleged assault, and that it has haunted her for years.
Anastasia Taneie alleges Piven pushed her against a wall and groped her breasts and genitals, leaving her a sobbing wreck when she was a 23-year-old background actress on the HBO series
She said that Piven had approached her as she stood with a group of other extras during a break in filming, and that he and his manager wanted to discuss something with her privately.
He only stopped when an assistant director (AD) walked past – and then demanded that she be taken off the set for coming onto him, she alleged.
BuzzFeed said it contacted five ADs who worked on the relevant season of Entourage, of whom two did not respond, two made contact but then stopped communication and one offered no comment.
Araceli Giacoman, another background actor on the show, told BuzzFeed that she saw her follow Piven after he said he had something to tell her, and that ‘It looked dark down there.’
She said that Taneie looked ‘a little distraught’ and ‘shaken’ when she returned to the extras’ room.
Andy Lobo, another extra on the set said that she cried and told him that Piven had assaulted her; her mother likewise said Taneie was ‘frantic’ and ‘crying’ as she relayed the allegations at the time.
Taneie said she has only spoken up now because she ‘was scared at the time nobody was going to believe me. I didn’t want to make a scene. I just wanted to go home.’
Not true: Piven (right, with the cast of Entourage) denies the claim
Accusers: Actress Ariane Bellamar, 38, (left) last month accused the actor of groping her breasts. Porn star Isis Taylor (right) is another women who claims Piven harassed her
HBO said in a statement that its records from the time don’t show any complaints against Piven, and that it ‘takes sexual harassment seriously’ and is committed to ensuring ‘a safe and comfortable work environment’ for all its employees.
As well as denying the claims, Piven said he may take legal action against his accusers and demanded that they take a polygraph test, as he did.
Piven’s lie detector test report related to the October claims by actress Ariane Bellamar that he groped her twice, once in his trailer on the Entourage set and the other at the Playboy mansion.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the test was made to ‘determine if Mr. Piven had ever “grabbed” or touched Ms. Arianne Bellamar, without consent or otherwise, on the buttocks and/or breast area, while on the set of Entourage and/or at the Playboy Mansion, approximately five years ago’.
The polygraph was administered by a member of the American Polygraph Association with Chapman Investigations on November 13.
It asked questions such as: ‘Did you ever “grab” and/or fondle Ms. Arianne Bellamar’s breasts?’, to which he answered ‘no’.
He was also asked if he had ever ‘cornered’ Ariane in his trailer ‘so that you could ‘grab’ her breasts and/or buttocks?’, and if she had ever been in his trailer on the set of Entourage. He said ‘no’ to both.

The concluding notes of the test stated: ‘After a careful evaluation of all test questions, including relevant, irrelevant and control questions, it is the examiner’s analysis and professional opinion that Mr. Piven showed no reactions indicative of deception to any of the relevant questions.
‘The results indicate Mr. Piven “PASSED” as to his answers on all questions.’
Piven had previously vowed to take such a test, insisting the allegations made against him were ‘absolutely false and completely fabricated’.
In a statement on Twitter, he said: ‘Let me begin by saying that the accusations against me are absolutely false and completely fabricated. I would never force myself on a woman. Period.
‘I have offered to take a polygraph to support my innocence. I keep asking myself, “How does one prove something didn’t happen?”
‘What I am not able to do is speculate as to the motivations of these women.
‘As a human being I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard.’
Piven has been an ’emotional wreck’ in the wake of the allegations, a source told DailyMail.com.

The industry insider claimed Piven broke down in tears during filming of his new TV series, before walking off set in front of stunned production staff.
He was filming scenes for his new CBS series Wisdom of the Crowd at the TV network’s studio in Los Angeles when he reportedly broke down.
The source claims the actor – who portrays Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner in the new drama – has appeared ‘jittery’ and ‘stressed’ as he continues to work, while privately dealing with the fallout of the allegations against him.
Piven was accused on Twitter of sexual harassment and assault by 38-year-old Bellamar at the end of October.
She was followed by actress Cassidy Freeman who said on her Instagram page that Piven engaged in ‘predatory behavior’ against her when she was ‘far too young.’
More women have since come forward accusing the Emmy winning actor of sexual assault and harassment.
Washington-based advertising executive Tiffany Bacon Scourby, 39, and Hawaii-based porn star Isis Taylor both say Piven attacked or harassed them.
Piven has denied all allegations of sexual assault saying they ‘are absolutely false and completely fabricated.’

The source said: ‘Jeremy is a mess, he broke down in tears as we were working on a scene and he left the set. Filming was stopped.
‘He has become an emotional wreck within the last week as these allegations mount against him.
‘Everything appears to be getting on top of him. The set has been increasingly tense.’
The source said Piven has kept ‘himself to himself’ since the allegations emerged with producers asking production crew to be ‘sensitive’ when dealing with the actor.
Piven wrote on Twitter after the allegations emerged: ‘What am I not able to do is speculate as to the motivations of these women, as a human being I feel compassion for the victims of such acts, but I am perplexed as to the misdirection of anger with false accusations against me and hope they do not detract from the stories that should be heard.’
