Default Child Stars 1968 Romeo and Juliet sue Paramount for $500m

Sex Abuse in 1968
For Sure

They were told
they did not have to be Naked.

On the day
of Filming,
they were told no bodysuits
they must go Naked or the Film will flop.

[Stars of 1968 film adaptation of
Romeo and Juliet sue Paramount
for $500m for 'forcing them'
into a sex scene when they were just
15 and 16 years old and filming
them nude without their knowledge
Olivia Hussey, 71, and Leonard Whiting, 72,
filed a lawsuit on Friday in California

The complaint accuses the studio of
sexual harassment, abuse, and fraud
They are seeking damages
'believed to be in excess of $500 million'
The film was directed by Italian filmmaker
Franco Zeffirelli and released through
Paramount Pictures
Zeffirelli, who earned an Oscar nomination
for best director for it, died in 2019
The British actors claim they were originally
told no nudity would be filmed or released]

[The pair were just 15 and 16 when
they were cast in the film adaptation
of Shakespeare's classic play by
Italian director Franco Zeffirelli]

The pursuit of money is the root of all evil.

[The movie directed by Franco Zeffirelli
(pictured with Hussey and Whiting at
the movie's Paris premiere)
was released in 1968 to critical acclaim
and earned the Italian filmmaker an
Academy Award nomination for Best Director.
Zeffirelli died in 2019 at the age of 96]

They were all right when this film launched their careers and enabled them to pursue lucrative careers, but now it's a problem?

Cynical as ever.
How do you know they were all right at the time and didn't just stay quiet to salvage a career?
How do you know they wouldn't have had more lucrative careers if they weren't seen a soft core pornstars?
If what they are saying is true and they were tricked into being naked then I think they have a fair case.

Leonard Whiting,15 and Olivia Hussey, 16


[The lawsuit alleges that the teens
'had no choice but to act in the nude with body makeup
as demanded on the last day of filming,'
despite having originally been promised
that no nudity would be filmed or released]

Yeah I will say ,why didn't they bring this up ... atleast before he died ???.

However , this isn't the first time Hollywood has exploited young actors for money. And yeah maybe the actors were told they'll make a good career afterwards,but it's messed up if it's true about them being lied to & used.
