Another female employee who worked on Casey Affleck's upcoming documentary I'm Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is claiming that Casey sexually harassed her by climbing into bed with her and groping her as she slept!
The accuser, Magdalena Gorka, is suing the actor for $2.25 million, saying that Casey allegedly engaged in harassing behavior and refused to pay her when she quit the project.
Gorka says that she was the only female employee working on the film and while in production, the crew stayed at Joaquin Phoenix's apartment instead of a hotel. She slept in Phoenix's bedroom while he slept on the couch.
Her claims say that:
"During the middle of the night, [Gorka] awoke to find Affleck lying in the bed next to her. Unbeknownst to [Gorka], Affleck had entered the bedroom while she was asleep and crawled into the bed. When she woke up, Affleck was curled up next to her in the bed wearing only his underwear and a t-shirt. He had his arm around her, was caressing her back, his face was within inches of hers and his breath reeked of alcohol."
When she woke up, she didn't know how long Affleck had been in bed with her or where she had been touched. When she told him to get out of bed, he asked, "Why?" in which she responded, "because you are married and because you are my boss." Gorka claims that he left the room and "slammed the door in anger."
Gorka adds that she left the project later that day, but returned later when another female, and Casey's other accuser, Amanda White, joined the project. Gorka says that she "was berated and verbally attacked by Affleck after she refused his sexual advances in New York, and was criticized constantly for refusing to be submissive in response to his rants and derisive comments."
Who knew that Joaquin would be the least scandalous story to come out this movie??
