Confidential settlements and NDAs have been used by Hollywood elites for decades to keep alleged abuse hiddenhttps://t.co/z0oq2ZKYJ7— BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) 24 octobre 2017
Caitlin O’Heaney (Tales of the Gold Monkey) said that actor Val Kilmer punched her during an audition for the 1991 film The Doors while director Oliver Stone looked on.
"When I got to the room and Val Kilmer picked me up and shaked me, throwing me down to the floor.... Stone just stood there the whole time laughing." After that audition, Stone said to her, “That got kind of wild,”
Risa Bramon Garcia, the casting director for the film believes O’Heaney’s reaction was “blown out of proportion.” She denies Kilmer struck O'Heaney in her face.
The confidential settlement signed by her, Stone, and Kilmer, and a check made to her from a company attached to the film for $24,500. After taxes and attorney fees, O’Heaney said she pocketed approximately $8,000.
The lead female role ended up going to Meg Ryan.
