Anne Greene and HBO are suing each other.
Green’s an actress who was hired to do a role in the HBO series Femme Fatales. (The series plays on Cinemax which is an HBO subsidiary.)
Anne Greene’s lawsuit says she was pressured to do a nude scene which she didn’t want to do and she considers this sexual harassment. Greene says she was unaware of the nude scene and wouldn’t have taken the part if it had been required.
HBO’s lawsuit says Greene was told when the role was being cast that it contained a nude scene and signed a contract agreeing to this. She then did the first day of shooting without mentioning the upcoming nude scene. The nude scene was scheduled to be filmed on the second day and when it arrived, Greene refused to do the scene. HBO alleges Greene intentionally chose not to mention this until after a day of shooting because this would mean the studio would have to throw out a day’s worth of shooting if they recast the part. When Greene refused to do the nude scene, the studio allowed her to do the scene wearing “pasties” and then shot the nude scene with a body double. The studio is suing Greene for the additional cost of hiring and shooting the body double.
So who do you think is right and who is wrong in this dispute?
