Warren Beatty has been sued for allεgεdly sεxually abusing a teenage girl almost 50 years ago. The actor would have been around 35 at the time of the supposed incident.
Kristina Charlotte Hirsch filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Monday, and while it doesn’t list Beatty by name, it identifies the defendant as a “well-known Hollywood star” who was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Clyde in Bonnie and Clyde. The documents, claim Hirsch “is a survivor of childhood sεxυal abυsε, battery, assaυlt, molestation and abυse” at the hands of the defendant.
She claims the alleged assault took place when she lived in California in 1973 after meeting Beatty on a movie set.
Hirsch was around age 14 when she claims Beatty paid “undue attention” to her and “commented repeatedly on her looks.” Beatty gave Hirsch his number and instructed her to call when she was near a hotel he was living at. She admits she was “thrilled by the attention and invitation.” The woman claims Beatty groomed her throughout the year and that she was coerced, as a minor.
She alleges she’s experienced “substantial emotional distress, anxiety, nervousness, anger and fear.” She is seeking punitive damages to be determined by the court.
Beatty married wife Annette Bening in 1994. They share four kids.
