In Topic: Harassment scandal(s) in Hollywood

Today, 12:57 PM

My husband and I were both disappointed by Wonder Woman. I expected to be incredibly moved because so many people loved it and said it made them cry and I felt nothing. I found it all very predictable. I'm glad Brett Ratner is out though.

I think this article has some good points:

Our theater ran out of season tickets this year (the package that included Hamilton) so I thought I wasn't going to get to see it, but we were still able to get seats for a couple hundred each, which is expensive but not outrageous. I have friends in Los Angeles who said the only tickets left were the $600 seats. Although, I think initially there were less seats available when I first looked. The seats we got weren't there when I looked before they came to our city. I don't know where the new seats came from.

Also - I call BS on all these people that rebuffed his advances. Angelina would do anything to stay relevant, and sleeping with Weinstein is a minor inconvenience

 

Agree completely. It's been long rumored that Gwyneth Paltrow was cast in Shakespeare in Love because she slept with Weinstein. I believe her part was supposed to go to Winona Ryder. 

 

ETA: Also, I see a lot of actors and actresses are defending themselves by saying "I never saw any of these behaviors", which is probably true. I doubt Weinstein was raping women in front of A-listers, and I find it plausible they didn't know all the details, but they knew he was crossing the line even if they didn't know how far, and for them to pretend like this is some shocking revelation is ridiculous.

Of course, along with all of the voices condemning Weinstein we have Donna Karan defending him by victim blaming:

And here's a story about how Weinstein, with the help of Matt Damon, killed an exposé of Weinstein for the New York Times in 2004.
