Melbourne, Mar. 13 (ANI): Anna Greene faced a major setback in court when she tried to sue HBO’s cinemax for forcing her to film nude sex scene for late-night television series ‘Femme Fatales’ against her will.
Then, the producers of the show countersued the ‘Saw 3D: The Final Chapter’ actress for breaching the ‘nudity rider’ she had signed upon accepting the role, reports News.com.au.
Greene argued that through the countersue, the production house is improperly hitting back against her claims of sexual harassment, but on March 11 a Los Angeles Superior Court rejected the argument.
The judge said although, the US Constitution guarantees a citizen’s right to petition grievances, Californian law can’t save her from facing claims by the the production company in court.
The saga surrounding Greene’s role in the second series of ‘Femme Fatales’ began in 2012 when she sued Time Warner, HBO, Cinemax and production company True Crime for sexual harassment and for being placed in a dangerous work environment.
She said she was “blindsided” by the show’s sex scenes and wouldn’t have agreed to the role if she knew “softcore porn” was part of the deal. (ANI)
