LOS ANGELES, D.C., July 31 (UPI) -- A second woman has sued U.S. filmmaker/actor Casey Affleck for sexual harassment, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Affleck is working on an upcoming Joaquin Phoenix documentary.

Cinematographer Magdalena Gorka is suing Affleck in a $2.25 million lawsuit being filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. The complaint says Affleck engaged in a pattern of harassing behavior, and refused to pay or credit her when the behavior forced her off the project.

The Reporter said the allegations are similar to a separate suit filed last Friday by Amanda White, a producer who says she left the movie after witnessing shocking behavior and after refusing to sleep in a hotel room with Affleck.

A spokesman for Affleck said he would have a statement later, but has already vehemently denied the allegations in the White case.
