In a story out Monday, The Hollywood Reporter said Jennifer Anastasia, the actress best known for her role in “Pitch Perfect” and “True Blood,” will have to withdraw from the upcoming “Hollywood” movie.
In the story, the magazine says the star and her manager, Scott Rudin, have been named in a lawsuit alleging that they forced a male producer to “perform sex acts on Anastasias then take her to their hotel room for a hotel room meal and an intimate kiss” in 2015.
The lawsuit claims the producer “was aware of his client’s sexual behavior and knew that Anastas actions were threatening the health and safety of the producer.”
The report says the complaint also claims that Anstasia and Rudin had sexual contact at a Los Angeles restaurant and then “at some point later that night” drove to the hotel room where the alleged sexual contact took place, where Rudin “took Anastans clothing and began fondling Anastays genitals.”
The story also says that Rudin then asked Anastassi to perform oral sex on him.
Anastasis, who has not responded to THR’s request for comment, previously was a star in a series of short films for the television network “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
The article does not say when the movie will be released.
THR says it is “in the early stages of the process of evaluating the suit and will update this post with any developments.”
The “Hollyweed” movie, which has already been greenlit, is set to begin filming in August.
