Alec Baldwin’s script supervisor files sex harassment lawsuit against actor and production company

A lawyer for a script supervisor who alleges she was fired for complaining about Alec Baldwin’s sexual behavior for his role in the film “Light of My Life” has filed a lawsuit against the actor and a production company involved. In the complaint, attorney Melissa Laurenza alleges that 18-year-old Emily Walter “was subjected to unwelcome, explicit, and pervasive sexual comments, innuendo, conduct, and requests, including from Baldwin, asking her to strip and to expose her body on multiple occasions” in the course of her job. Walter claims she was then denied overtime wages and unpaid vacation time, among other violations.

Walter, who’s also represented by attorney Kathleen S. May, alleges she was pushed out of her job after she took up with someone outside the company. In her lawsuit, she describes a scene on set where she says Baldwin forced himself upon her and she “fought back” by “hitting him.” She also alleges that she was made to take off her shirt and underwear and that she was later asked to reveal her bra as a result of her complaints. Walter’s complaint says that Baldwin had her write up “on how a costume change at the last minute would affect the work of filming.”

On the set of “Light of My Life,” Baldwin allegedly “waved a camera at [Walter’s] breasts at one point during filming.” She also allegedly witnessed Baldwin make remarks about the weight of actresses and others while directing. According to the complaint, Walter was subjected to “unwanted personal touching by other cast and crew members on multiple occasions, including unsolicited suggestions as to clothing choices and physical positions that should be used on camera.”

Walter says she expressed her concerns to her boss, who promised to have her re-employed once the movie was released, but he was fired after attending the premiere of the film. The lawsuit says her pay was then slashed by $26,000.
