French actor Judith Godrèche has filed a police complaint against director Benoît Jacquot, accusing him of "rapes with violence of a minor less than 15 years old," Le Monde reported. This comes after Godrèche publicly denounced their relationship from the late 1980s when she was just 14 and Jacquot was 40. The 77-year-old director denied the allegations, claiming they shared a "loving" relationship. If found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
