Casey Affleck supported by femme crew members in sex harassment suits
HollywoodNews.com: Two women who worked on the production of Casey Affleck’s “I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix,” are standing up for the actor-director who has been accused of sexual harassment.
Associate produce Nicole Acacio is well acquainted with Amanda White, the producer who is seeking $2 million from Affleck, and Magdalena Gorka, the cinematographer who wants $2.5 million.
Speaking to Page Six, Acacio exclaims: “I got to know both Amanda and Magdalena to some degree. I never saw anything out of the ordinary either on or off set, and certainly nothing like what they described in their suits.
“I was in Las Vegas at that shoot, and I never saw anything like that happen. Casey’s wife and his children were in town with him. Casey is a great guy, and it’s clear that he’s a very warm, family-centric person.
“The real Casey isn’t the one who was described in these suits. Nothing I’ve ever witnessed would lead me to think he could ever do anything like that.”
Gorka claims that the Affleck brothers jumped into her bed and fondled her while she slept in her New York apartment.
White has griped about “uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances” while filming “I’m Still Here” and the fact that the Las Vegas shoot was littered with hookers and cross-dressers.
An anonymous female editor on the movie defended, “These lawsuits are contrary to everything that I personally know about Casey.”
