Maybe Maximilian Schell will think twice now before trying to compliment someone.

The Academy Award-winning actor has settled a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by the producer of his cable TV movie, "Candles in the Dark." Diana Botsford claimed Schell humiliated her by asking her to bathe with him and making graphic comments about her body in front of other people."I feel gloriously vindicated," Schell, 64, said in a statement. "All I said was that she has beautiful breasts. In Europe, thank God, that is still a compliment."

The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.
