...seeing as the alleged worst kept secret in Hollywood has suddenly appeared in the mainstream media.

Film producer Harvey Weinstein has issued an apology as a newspaper reported a number of sexual harassment allegations against him.
"I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologise for it," said the movie mogul's statement.
But he later disputed a New York Times report that claimed he harassed female employees over nearly three decades.
The newspaper reported he had reached at least eight settlements with women.

Rumours of the so called 'Hollywood casting couch' have been a recurring feature in the mogul's career. Hopefully, these claims will result in prosecutions and an in depth examination of the twisted Hollywood culture.


In the meantime, have a look at the totally not creepy body language in this picture:

Actress Ashley Judd has made some accusations about Harvey Weinstein too:

Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview.

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Ms. Judd said she remembers thinking.

He’s gross, self-admitted apparently!

If I was desperate to be famous (I’m most assuredly not) and he got his schlong out, I’d be like “Don’t want it that badly, see ya!” That’s probably happened a lot down the years. There’s so much desperation in that industry though and with that comes exploitation.

This explains Jennifer Lawerence's gratuitous success perfectly.

Ah the old "I'm sick and I need help" defence.

Classy.

While people are desperate to become famous men like this will exist.

Exactly. First they tempt the poor man and now they demonise him. Yet another white male victim of political correctness. Time for men to make a stand!

Yours, etc,

Roman Polanski was convicted of a sexual crime. (Can’t remember the exact charge) Convicted. And Hollywood is generally very behind him. What are you on about?

I think this supports the idea that there is disproportionate amount of of psychopaths among CEOs perfectly. I find that kind of a power trip especially despicable.

I’m waiting for someone to post in this thread saying that if he was good-looking, the women would be totally fine with him getting his cock out in a business meeting.

Roman Polanski drugged and sodomised a child-do you really have to be "pro woman" (whatever the fúck that's supposed to mean) to have a problem with that?

As you said Polanski was committed of rape, yet he still gets films distributed and many Hollywood actors have no problem working with him without howls of outrage.
Many of the same Hollywood actors have no problem pushing nonsense like The Handmaidens Tale is exactly like Trump and are against Trumps misogyny etc

TLDR; most Hollywood actors are hypocrites and I don't expect too much outrage from them towards Weinstein.

We all know who runs Hollywood and it's not the Koreans.


The idea that Hollywood is still a Jewish town is pretty ludicrous. It's now run by bean counters which run on code.

Disney - Sean Bailey
Warners - Kevin Tsujihara, Edward A. Romano, Toby Emmerich
21st Century Fox - Stacey Snider (yes Jewish)
Universal - Donna Langley, Jimmy Horowitz, Jeff Shell
Columbia - Sanford Panitch
Paramount - Jim Gianopulos
