The two stars of 1968′s Romeo and Juliet sued Paramount Pictures late last year for more than $500 million over a scene they shot as teenagers. Olivia Hussey, then 15 and now 72, and Leonard Whiting, then 16 and now 73, said director Franco Zeffirelli, who died in 2019, misled them by saying they would wear flesh-colored undergarments in an intimate scene, but informed them on the morning of the shoot that they would wear only body makeup.

A judge dismissed the case in May 2023, but Whiting and Hussey filed a second lawsuit against Paramount, claiming the studio had digitally redistributed the film without their permission.
