Harvey Weinstein



  • These scumbag Harvey Weinstein stories from the past weekend are amazing, and not simply because some of the biggest news organizations in the world sat on the stories for 15 years for fear of retribution and advertising boycotts. An "open secret" in the industry for three decades, allegedly, yet Hardcore Harv's felines be strangely silent on their #WarOnWomen tweets. Love seeing cognitive dissonance from self-righteous liberal Hollywood A-list hypocrites.

    And of course, the silence from allied Democratic Party heavyweight operatives such as the Clintons and the Obamas is even more deafening.

    Except she didn't. She jokingly got her make up artist (I think) to write JD loves HW on her arse and showed it to the perv, then had it wiped off. Also that piece says that Weinstein gave her her first starring role in the movie Mrs Brown in 1997. Yeah sure, she was the lead but it sort of ignores the fact that she'd been in much bigger films in the past. Like, oh I don't know. Goldeneye?

    Unlikely he sexually harassed her though....

    The hypocrisy is breathtaking. The same people who lost their shit over the Trump audio recording not only stayed silent about this for decades but are completely mute now.

    Pathetic



  • His statement from last week was insane

    Unlikely I would either...

    Agree re the hypocrisy. as you may call I don't have much time for the Trump thing and equally so this. I guess though the difference is that Trump is a totally public person now whereas the fat perv was only relevant within his immediate domain. You often find when the influence is narrow but very powerful that fear rules completely. I see your Weinstein and I raise you Saville. There remain many influential people that have remained strangely quiet about dear old Jimmy.

    Scum really.



  • I liked SNL's reasoning for not skewering him on their show "It's a New York thing".

    Guess that doesn't apply to Trump?

    Not calling you a hypocrite mate, just the Hollywood tossers who care only about the side and never the principle.





  • Heard a reporter from Hollywood News on radio today defending the media.

    Said for years she has tried to report this story but no one would go on the record because a) Weinstein always paid people off and got a non-disclosure in return and b) fear of being blackballed.

    She thinks the differences this time are that Weinstein isn't as powerful as he was a decade ago. He's seen as having lost the golden touch. Plus most importantly the leaked memo which made it easier for N Y Times to say to Ashley Judd "look you're not alone we have corroborating evidence of his behavior". There are apparently strong indicators that the leak was deliberately given to the press possibly even by his brother as Weinstein was now too great a liability.

    Once Judd went public the dam burst.

    Again, reporter said she and others have tried to publicise Weinstein's abhorrent behavior many times but his literal and metaphorical size and aggression plus millions in hush money had made it impossible.

    What else would you expect from a low-brow fakenews tabloid like Newsweek?



  • Really have to question the Obama's and/or the people close to them who thought sending their daughter to intern under Harv was a good idea without a background check? That is, if it really was Hollywood's "worst-kept secret," you'd like to believe the DNC might have done a little preliminary digging to see whether this toxic pervert was going to help-or-hurt their brand.



  • Sad thing is, with these "casting couch" revelations, it's gonna be real hard for me to watch movies with actresses like Blake Lively, Gretchen Mol, Gwnyth Paltrow etc without seeing Harv's bratwurst and mayonaisse in their mouths, and that's not something I really need to be thinking about!



  • @catogrande

    I just checked a lot of the promotional items on Goldeneye (posters, dvd, stills, video game, advertising) and confirmed what I remembered, that Dench is neither pictured nor credited as a star. "Starred" as written by Newsweak presumably doesn't mean "support actress." A technicality, just sayin'.

    I'd imagine he picked his targets. And the daughter of the sitting POTUS was not one of them. Anyways he probably didn't spend much time in the office actually working....



  • @canefan

    I don't for a second think he'd mash on Barack' baby girl either, unless he was a complete sociopath (not willing to rule out the possibility, power does strange things to sociopaths). I'm more alarmed that somebhody didn't step forward and tell Barack, hey, bro, this dude that raises you money and keeps coming to the White House, he's a real pervert the worst-kept secret in Hollywood, possible Jimmy Savile stuff... you know, politically and socially, you might want to put a barge-pole between your office and a "known" sex deviant, and that should be a pair of barge-poles between the sleazebag and your daughter, irrespective how many awards he wins and dollars he bundles for the Dems. Y'know, common sense.



  • Zoe Brock has a blog.

    [...]

    I felt outside of my body as I assessed my situation and heard myself, a 23 year old girl from New Zealand, reprimand this grown man as if he was a small child.

    “This is unacceptable. Put your clothes on you naughty, naughty boy.”

    Harvey, contrite, promised to cover himself and leave me alone. I came out of the bathroom and found him sitting on his bed, wearing a bathrobe, crying.

    “You don’t like me because I’m fat.” He whimpered.

    I think we can all accept that most movies have more than two stars i.e. leading man and woman and that as the recipient of 3 BAFTA's and numerous high profile roles before Mrs Brown Dame Judi was hardly an unknown



  • @dogmeat

    In the Commonwealth, certainly. But in the United States...? Don't kid yourself. If she'd been a star her name would have been on the poster.



  • @salacious-crumb who gives a flying fuck what the rebel colonies think?

    Dench wasn't on any Bond posters I can find so I think that says more about the character "M" than her standing but it's irrelevant in terms of Weinstein's contemptible actions
