I am not my brother
Casey Affleck’s messy legal battle is getting worse. Another lady who worked on the set of his Joaquin Phoenix doc is suing him for being a sexual freak, allegedly sneaking up on her in the middle of the night and getting into bed and demanding to sleep with her. Casey’s team is accusing this second lady of opportunism on the heels of the first suit, denying everything.
So now we wait to see how Summer Phoenix responds. And Joaquin too. Is he down with his bff betraying his sister? I’m still not convinced Casey’s that kind of pervert, but I’m less unconvinced that I was last week. Here are Casey and Summer in April at the premiere of The Killer Inside Me.
And here’s Casey’s brother Ben this weekend with his wife Jennifer Garner and their girls, the perfect happy family at the park in Santa Monica kicking a ball around spending quality time together after Jennifer’s week in New York shooting Arthur with Russell Brand. That night Ben took Jen out for a romantic dinner at Nobu in Malibu. Click here to see those shots. Well now they look content and full of domestic bliss, don’t they?
Ben’s The Town is scheduled for release on September 10th, his directorial follow-up to Gone Baby Gone, and with quite the cast. The Town will premiere at the Venice Film Festival. Casey’s The Lost Year of Joaquin Phoenix is also supposed to be screened. So it’s not a bad idea to remind people which brother is drama-free now, non?
