Today's Most: Hollywood production company sues actress for refusing to film nude scene

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST... Only in Hollywood lawsuit: A production company just filed a lawsuit against an actress, Anne Greene, alleging she broke her contract when she refused to perform nude scenes for a show on Cinemax.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the company, named True Crime, produced an erotic show for Cinemax called "Femme Fatale." True Crime says when they hired Greene they sent her a "nudity rider" saying she'd have to show her "chest" and "behind." The company says it also sent her copies of other episodes, which clearly show actresses in nude scenes. 

Then, on the second day of shooting, the lawsuit claims Greene "arrived on set, reported to wardrobe on time, but then abruptly refused to report to the set, expressing for the first time, contrary to the express terms of the Employment Agreement and Nudity Rider, that she was not comfortable performing the scene topless or allowing herself to be filmed topless." True Crime also argues it did many things to try to get Greene to feel more comfortable.

There's even more to this story. Two years ago Greene filed a lawsuit against True Crime, Cinemax, and others alleging sexual harassment and that she was bullied into doing nude scenes. That lawsuit is supposed to go to trial in two months, and now True Crime filed this cross complaint.

True Crime wants $85,000 in damages.
