Casting couch 'still going'.

THE casting couch is alive and well, creaking under the weight of nubile wannabes and seedy movie moguls as starlets still sleep their way to fame, says author Jackie Collins.

'There are a lot of producers who come to Hollywood from New York, just to have sex with beautiful women,' she said. 'I know at least ten like that.'

But the days of the casting couch may be numbered. Earlier this year former talent agent Wallace Kaye was sentenced to more than five years in prison for sexual battery on nine aspiring actresses.
