Roy Price Put on Leave of Absence at Amazon Studios

Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos has said he wants his studio division to deliver more big hits like HBO's popular series "Game of Thrones" that get people talking and set social media abuzz, prompting changes in the studio unit, Variety reported in September. "You will love my d**k", he said, according to Hackett, who relayed her account to multiple individuals in the hours after the alleged episode.

There was no immediate response from Price.

Casey Affleck - who has also been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment that he has denied - won a best actor Oscar this year for his role in the Amazon original movie "Manchester by the Sea". She received no further updates on the claims, and refrained from sharing details publicly until now.

Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick and a producer of Amazon's "Man in the High Castle", based on his work.
