A California lady who is now 14 years old filed a complaint against famed actor and director Warren Beatty, claiming that he coerced her into having intercourse with him in 1973.

The case, which was submitted by Kristina Charlotte Hirsch on Monday in the Los Angeles Superior Court, describes Warren Beatty as a well-known Hollywood performer who received recognition for his portrayal of Clyde Barrow in the 1967 film “Bonnie and Clyde.”

The lawsuit, which was originally covered by Variety, claims that Beatty, while residing in Los Angeles in 1973, “used his role, status, and authority as a well-known Hollywood Star to get access to, groom, control, exploit, and extort sexual contact from her over the course of several months.”

According to the lawsuit, Hirsch was only a young adolescent when her neighbor escorted her to a Hollywood film set where she worked. The “Reds” director, who Hirsch met there when he was about 35 years old, showed an immediate interest in the girl and gave her his contact information.

Beatty, who is now 85, allegedly welcomed Hirsch to his hotel and took her out on dates in which he offered to help her with her homework and repeatedly broached the subject of losing her virginity, according to the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, Hirsch was “thrilled” that the actor was interested in her and thought she was “in a romantic connection with a movie celebrity.”

Beatty “used his position and stature as an adult and a Hollywood movie star to induce sexual contact with Plaintiff on several occasions, including oral sex, simulated sex, and finally coerced sexual intercourse with the minor kid” during the period they were together.

Hirsch, who is currently residing in Louisiana, is suing for exemplary and punitive damages for the psychological, mental, and emotional pain she experienced after meeting Beatty. She continues to have “problems of trust and control,” according to the lawsuit.

She filed the lawsuit in accordance with a 2019 California law that, starting on Jan. 1, 2020, created a three-year “lookback window” for accusations of child sexual abuse that would otherwise be barred by the state’s statute of limitations, according to the lawsuit.

Hirsch is being represented by legal professionals from Jeff Anderson & Associates, a renowned group that has handled numerous high-profile child sex abuse cases involving the Boy Scouts of America and the Catholic Church.

Beatty married actress Annette Bening in 1992, with whom he has four children.
