Casey Affleck undskylder for sexchikane


Casey Affleck bryder for første gang tavsheden og undskylder for at have `opført sig uproffesionelt` under indspilningerne til filmen ‘I’m Still Here’ fra 2010, skriver Metro.

»Det var et uprofessionelt miljø.. Den dårlige opførsel burde have stoppet ved mig, da jeg var en af producerne, og jeg tager det fulde ansvar for det. Jeg bidrog til det uprofessionelle miljø og tolererede den slags opførsel fra andre, og jeg ville ønske, at jeg ikke havde gjort det. Jeg opførte mig på en måde - og tillod andre at opføre sig på en måde - der var meget uprofessionel. Og det undskylder jeg for,« siger 42-årige Affleck i et interview med nyhedsbureauet AP.

Casey Affleck blev i 2010 sagsøgt for sexchikane af Amanda White og Magdalena Gorka, som begge arbejde med ham på filmen. Affleck benægtede anklagerne, og sagen blev ordnet uden for retten.

Ifølge anklagen har Affleck gentagne gange omtalt kvinder som køer, højlydt diskuteret sine egne- og andre Hollywood stjerners erobringer og har på en truende måde fastholdt Amanda White, efter hun afviste hans krav om at komme op på hans hotelværelse.

Som følge af #metoo valgte Hollywood-stjernen at udeblive fra Oscars-uddelingen i 2017, hvor han skulle have overrakt prisen for bedste kvindelige hovedrolle til Frances Louise McDormand. Det er tradition, at vinderen af bedste mandlige hovedrolle, som Affleck vandt for sin præstation i filmen ‘Manchester By The Sea’, det følgende år overrækker prisen til vinderen af bedste kvindelige hovedrolle. Prisen blev i stedet overrakt af Jodie Foster og Jennifer Lawrence
