A second woman that worked alongside Casey Affleck on his documentary featuring Joaquin Phoenix is claiming she was sexually harassed.
Ben Affleck’s brother is getting deeper in trouble after a second woman claims he sexually harassed her.
Magdalena Gorka alleges that Casey Affleck climbed into her bed when she was sleeping and groped her. Gorka is suing for $2.25 million.
Amanda White, a producer from the same project, filed a similar lawsuit just last week alleging Affleck engaged in inappropriate behavior. Both women reportedly left the filming of the documentary after the alleged incidents and claim Affleck never paid them for their work.
Affleck’s rep will be making a statement for the actor that will address the newest allegations. Affleck has already denied Amanda White’s claims.
Cinematographer Magdalena Gorka says the crew didn’t stay in hotels during the filming but would stay at Phoenix’s house. Phoenix offered Groka his bed and slept on the couch.
“During the middle of the night, [Gorka] awoke to find Affleck lying in the bed next to her,” the lawsuit alleges. “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.”
Gorka also said 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.”
Gorka said she wasn’t paid for her work and was also stripped of the Director of Photography credit on the film.
The documentary, ‘I’m Still Here: The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix,’ is to be released this Fall.
