After being accused of sexual harassment by two women who worked on his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, Casey Affleck's associate producer Nicole Acacio is sticking up for him.
"I never saw anything out of the ordinary either on or off set, and certainly nothing like what they described in [these lawsuits]," Acacio, tells the NY Post. "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. These lawsuits are contrary to everything that I personally know about Casey."
Producer Amanda White claimed the actor/producer made "uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances in the workplace," and cinematographer Magdalena Gorka alleges that while filming the documentary, Affleck climbed into bed with her and groped her while she was sleeping. Affleck's lawyer has strongly denied the accusations made by both of these women, who are also seeking payment for their time spent on the film.
Who do you believe? Ben's little bro or the girls?
