Director includes masturbation in auditions

An acclaimed French film director credited with discovering Vanessa Paradis appeared in a Paris court yesterday accused by four young actresses of forcing them to masturbate as part of their screen tests.

Jean-Claude Brisseau denies the charges of sexual harassment and sexual assault, insisting in newspaper interviews that the "erotic auditions", held between 1996 and 2001 for his 2002 feature Choses Secrètes, were justified artistically and "indispensable" to his work.

Uhmmm, Coralie Revel and Sabrina Seyvecou both starred in the movie. I wonder if they are the ones pressing charges or did they not see anything wrong in masturbating in front of someone old enough to be their grandfather?
