Casey Affleck Being Sued For Sexual Harassment

7/24/2010 Posted by Admin

Casey Affleck has been filming the horrible looking mokumentary "I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix" for sometime now and apparently the dirty deeds performed during filming have come back to bite him in the ass. People is reporting that Affleck is getting sued big time and to the tune of $2 million big ones.

So here are the deets:  A woman named Amanda White is filing the suit for "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace." The 19-page complaint details claims that Affleck called women on the set cows all the time, invited women back to his hotel rooms on several occasions even though he is married to Joaquin Phoenix's sister Summer. She also claims the film's star took over her Costa Rica hotel room to entertain women and that Affleck was aggressive when she denied his advances in his own San Francisco hotel room. She says he also "violently grabbed her arm in an effort to intimidate her into staying."
Whether the claims are true is up for grabs, but there's no denying that there has been some whacked out crap surrounding this entire film and I've been soaking up every creepy detail of it. It looks as if they are still shopping around for someone to pick up the project and even though most of the film has been staged or a hoax, it still looks to be interesting.

The list of damages include "sexual harassment, breach of oral contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress." She also claims that Casey Affleck still owes her money for her work as a producer. All this does for me is make sure I see this show the moment its released.

Here he is with Phoenix--looking shifty:
