Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting have filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures over a nude scene in 1968’s Romeo and Juliet. The two actors were both underage when the scene was shot. They claim the Director, Franco Zeffirelli, lied to them by saying there would be no nude scenes, and then insisted the film would fail if they did not perform in the nude on the last day of filming. They are accusing Paramount Pictures of sexual harassment, fraud, sexual abuse and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
