Actor and director takes responsibility for ‘really unprofessional’ environment on 2010 film set.
Actor and director Casey Affleck has addressed allegations of harassment for the first time, saying he contributed to an “unprofessional environment” on the film set of I’m Still Here.
The 42-year-old said he took responsibility for the “really unprofessional” atmosphere on the set of the 2010 film that led to civil lawsuits from two women who worked on the production.
During Affleck’s best actor campaign for Manchester By the Sea in 2016, the spotlight was turned back on the civil lawsuits for breach of contract filed by a cinematographer and a producer who worked on I’m Still Here.
One of the women also sued for sexual harassment, and both described an uncomfortable atmosphere on the set of the unconventional mockumentary.
