Romeo And Juliet child actors sue Paramount Pictures over nude scene
Romeo and Juliet's actors, who acted in Franco Zeffirelli's 1968 film, are suing Paramount Pictures.
They assert in a lawsuit that Paramount Pictures' use of a bedroom scene as sexual exploitation.
When the actors played the lead roles, Leonard Whiting was 16 and Olivia Hussey was 15 years old.
Both actors are now in their 70s.
The suit says Zeffirelli - who died in 2019 - cajoled them into performing the scene, telling them without it "the picture would fail."
