Oscars Frontrunner Casey Affleck Accused of Sexual Harassment — Report
Casey Affleck is currently a frontrunner for the 2017 Oscar for Best Actor: he’s already won a bunch of preliminary awards, has a famous big brother, and is even hosting Saturday Night Live this Saturday, December 17.
None of that was true back in 2010 when Ben Affleck’s little brother was accused of sexual harassment by two women who shared separate disturbing accounts.
Cinematographer Magdalena Gorka worked with Casey, 41, on 2010’s strange mockumentary, I’m Still Here.
During the shoot, Magdalena says she suffered “traumatizing” harassment at the hands of the movie star, RadarOnline.com reports.
In a chilling story, the photography pro says she found a drunk Casey in bed with her.
The Manchester By the Sea star had invited the entire Here crew to stay in his apartment after a long night shoot for the film.
The photo director claims she was “shocked and repulsed” to find Casey had crawled into bed with her, wearing just his underwear and “reeking” of alcohol.
After Magdalena “demanded he leave,” the star exited by “[slamming] the door in anger.”
I’m Still Here producer Amanda White allegedly had a very similar experience while filming the Joaquin Phoenix-starrer.
Amanda says Casey — who was then-married to Joaquin’s sister Summer — demanded another crew member show his penis to the producer.
In another unsettling moment, the former Oscar-nominee supposedly locked the woman out of her own Costa Rican hotel room while he and Joaquin engaged in “sexual activity” with two women inside.
Although Casey had his own space, Amana believed “this was all a part of [Casey] Affleck’s campaign of abuse and harassment.”
This supposed campaign continued with the appearance of “male transvestites.”
Amanda also accused Casey of inviting “several prostitutes” and “male transvestites” to the crew’s Las Vegas hotel suite for his “personal gratification.”
Despite this long list of upsetting claims, the actor has vehemently denied both women’s stories.
Magdelena and Amanda settled their lawsuits out of court.
