"They have splashed spurious claims with bombastic titles on their front pages. This has created irreparable damage to my reputation," he told reporters in Melbourne.
Rush said his wife, daughter and son had also been hurt by the allegations.
"This situation is intolerable and I must now seek vindication of my good name through the courts in Australia."
The allegations date back to a Sydney Theatre Performance of King Lear from 2015.
The suit was filed on Friday. A court date is yet to be set.
Comment was being sought from the Daily Telegraph.
