caseyaffleckaccus.jpg Casey Affleck has been accused of sexual harassment by Amanda White, a producer of his documentary about brother-in-law Joaquin Phoenix.

White claims Affleck made "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances" while directing I'm Still Here, and she says Ben's younger brother tried to get her to spend the night with him at a hotel in San Francisco.

In court documents, White claims Affleck became "hostile and aggressive" when she rejected his advances and "violently grabbed her arm in an effort to intimidate her into staying." Of course, White also claims Affleck owes her money for her work on the documentary, which follows Joaquin Phoenix's unsuccessful attempt to become a rapper.

Affleck's lawyer Michael Plonsker said in a statement:

    "The allegations brought upon our clients are preposterous and without merit. Ms. White was terminated from the production over a year ago. She and her lawyers believe that this maliciously and erroneously filed complaint will cause the producers to succumb to her outrageous and baseless demands. She is mistaken. The complaint will be vigorously defended and cross-claims will be filed against her."
