Tom Hanks Hates Promotion

Tom Hanks recently sat down for a Times Talks Q&A, where he talked about doing press junkets to promote movies. Here’s what he had to say, as reprinted by Page Six:

“A press junket for a motion picture is the most opprobrious thing that human beings have ever been put through. It is merciless. It is a level or corporate branding strategy to the degree of hackery and they honestly think you have the stamina of an ox to drag this piece of shit movie across international datelines. It goes on forever until truly you cannot fathom words that are coming out of your mouth.

When you see a movie star talking about their film, understand they hate themselves. The motion picture they made is a blur in the background. Even when they see it, they don’t remember any of it.”




Kerry Washington Talks Standards of Beauty

Kerry Washington is on the November cover of Allure Magazine. Here’s what she had to say in her accompanying interview:

On looking perfect on screen:
“There’s someone who follows me around all day long [on the set]. Like, literally follows me to make sure there’s not a single hair out of place. This is somebody’s full-time job. Then someone follows me around to add powder so that I never look shinier than I’m supposed to...Friday night’s concealer is very different than Tuesday afternoon’s concealer. They get thicker as the week goes on and you get more exhausted.”

On her hair:
“I like to wear my natural texture, especially now because I have children and I want them to know that their hair is perfect as it is. They don’t have to change it or straighten it. They can, but they don’t have to.”

On producing:

“I’m working now on 24/7, this comedy about three women in the workplace, and Eva Longoria and I are two out of the three. We basically walked into Universal and acted it out for them, and they were like, ‘OK.’  It’s kind of like being the Olivia Pope of television. You get to change people’s lives and fix problems and be grounded and assertive and of service. So it really is a lot of things that I felt Olivia has taught me to do in pretend and then to apply those skills when I produce.”

On staying current on the news:
“I have to dip in and dip out, because it suffocates me. Like, I become unable to function. So it’s a tricky balance between staying aware and also staying connected to a sense of hope and productivity and showing up for life.”

Kevin Smith Donating Profits

In the wake of the Harvey Weinsten news, filmmaker Kevin Smith announced on his podcast Hollywood Babble-On that he is donating all future residuals from films that he worked on with Harvey Weinstein to the non-profit organization Women in Film. Here’s what he had to say, as reprinted by the Huffington Post:

“My entire career is tied up with the man. It’s been a weird fucking week. I just wanted to make some fucking movies, that’s it. That’s why I came, that’s why I made ‘Clerks.’ And no fucking movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, fuck it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really fucking horrible.

I’m not looking for sympathy. I know it’s not my fault, but I didn’t fucking help. Because I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend, like he was my father and shit like that, and he changed my fucking life. I was singing praises of somebody that I didn’t fucking know. I didn’t know the man that they keep talking about in the press. Clearly he exists, but that man never showed himself to me. It all hurts, and it didn’t happen to me, but it all hurts.”

The Huffington Post notes "Smith also mentioned that it’s possible that The Weinstein Company could fold, causing the movies to lose their value. Due to this possibility, the filmmaker also pledged to donate $2,000 to Women in Film every month for the rest of his life."

Survivor Stories

In the wake of women speaking out about assault, Emmy-winning director and producer Heather Ross revealed that she was sexually assaulted by an unnamed Oscar-winning producer (not Harvey Weinstein). When she confided in her good friend Carrie Fisher what happened to her, here's what Carrie Fisher did, as reprinted by E! News:

"About two weeks later, she sent me a message online and she said, 'I just saw [blank] at Sony Studios.' I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow. I asked her what was inside and she said, ‘It was a cow tongue from Jerry's Famous Deli in Westwood with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box!' It felt validating to know, 'Okay, first of all, this woman who I love as a friend was not just a fake Hollywood friend.' That's who she was. She spoke out and she put things out there in your face."

Actress Laura Dern appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, where she stated that hearing all of the women speak out at the Elle Women in Hollywood event made her realize that she, too, had been assaulted. Here's what she had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"It was an extraordinary experience, perhaps more than ever, to have this shared space and a tribe of women and artists talking about this industry, and ultimately therefore talking about sexual harassment in the workplace. And a very interesting thing happened this morning. I woke up and I realized that in that space I talked about how I was one of the lucky ones because I was raised by actors who told me their stories and told me what to look out for, and I realized that I was I still justifying behavior. And it was my mom who said, 'No, no, no, Laura—that was sexual assault. That was harassment. That was assault. You were 14 then.'...You realize how in our culture we have justified, and therefore even condoned behavior, as though it's the norm...I felt very moved by people being honest and direct."

You might think that once you "make it to the top" you might be immune to harassment. You would be wrong. Ilana Glazer opened up on her Instagram about harassment, stating "i've fired a couple dudes — one background actor and one sound guy. I was asked ‘are you sure.’ Okay yeah lemme think for a sec — YEAH I’M FUCKING SURE. cuz getting sexually harassed seems to be constant, but having the opportunity to do something about it is rare.”

As we all know, harassment and assault is not confined to the entertainment world; it's everywhere. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney recently opened up about being molested by her team doctor beginning at the age of 13. Read her full account at NPR.

Sexual Harassers Face Consequences

TMZ reports that Harvey Weinstein has officially resigned from the Weinstein Company. Weinstein was actually fired five days ago, but his contract contained a "cooling off period" before the board could officially fire him. The board met yesterday to ratify the firing, which required Weinstein to resign. Had he not resigned, the company would have had to remove him from the board. But Harvey is not going quietly into that good night; his lawyer indicated that he plans on suing The Weinstein Company.

Think Harvey is the only predator in the Weinstein family? Think again! Variety reports that Amanda Segel, former executive producer of The Mist, has accused Bob Wenstein of sexual harassment. Quoting from the Variety article:

"Weinstein repeatedly made romantic overtures to her and asked her to join him for private dinners. The harassment began in the summer of 2016 and continued on and off for about three months until Segel’s lawyer, David Fox of Myman Greenspan, informed TWC executives — including COO David Glasser — that she would leave the show if Bob Weinstein did not stop contacting her on personal matters.

‘"No"’ should be enough. After "no," anybody who has asked you out should just move on. Bob kept referring to me that he wanted to have a friendship. He didn’t want a friendship. He wanted more than that. My hope is that "no" is enough from now on.'”

Bob Weinstein denies the allegations.

The Hollywood Reporter announces that Roy Price, the head of Amazon Studios, has resigned after details of his sexual harassment emerged. His fiance Lila Feinberg has left him in light of the allegations - she was going to wear a wedding dress designed for her by Georgina Chapman, estranged wife of Harvey Weinstein. Price was fired for telling Isa Hackett, a producer on Amazon's The Man in the High Castle and Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, that she would love his dick.

What are some things that you've had to unlearn?

Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer #1 (2018) | Movieclips Trailers

The Watcher House is For Sale

Do you remember the story of the New Jersey home that came with The Watcher? A couple bought the house in 2014 for $1.3 million, not knowing what else came with the house - The Watcher. Someone or something kept sending letters to the family signed "The Watcher," where someone or something asked for the names of their children and, in another letter, referred to them as "young blood." Another letter stated, "My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time." The identity of The Watcher remains unsolved.

If you like being watched, then I've got some great news for you! Time reports that the couple is tired of the harassment, and has listed the home for sale for $1.125 million. Comes with a free watcher. No word as to whether or not The Watcher deters burglars.

Kardashian Korner

TMZ reports that Blac Chyna has sued all of the Kardashians for stopping her reality show with Rob. Sources at E! call bullshit on her claims, and say that she only has herself to blame. First off, Rob & Chyna was a terrible show. No one watched it. Additionally, Chyna refused to be in the same room with Rob. Kind of hard to film a reality show that stars two people when one of those people refuses to film with the other. She is also suing the entire Kardashian family for battery after claiming that Rob beat her back in April.

As for that fight back in April, sources connected to the Kardashians tell TMZ that Rob was just defending himself after Chyna went on a days-long drinking and cocaine-filled binge, and brought home a stripper to party some more. Rob kicked out the stripper, and Chyna went ballistic. The Kardashian's lawyer Shawn Holley states, "We have witness statements and other evidence which will demonstrate conclusively that it is Chyna -- not Rob -- who is the violent and aggressive abuser."

They Knew

After a bunch of people came out stating that they had no idea about Harvey Weinstein, two men have gone on the record stating that they knew.

Skeet Ulrich recently sat down for an interview with Cosmopolitan. Here's what he had to say:

“I knew. Most people knew. I had dinner with someone who is one of the most famous women on the planet — I won’t say who it is — who has not come out, who told me similar things.”

On why he didn't do anything about it:
“...there is nothing you can do. I mean, What am I gonna do? I can’t step up, certainly then, on allegations. Honestly, and I think it’s what most people faced: How do you cut your livelihood from a very powerful corporation on something that you don’t know what the facts are? Now that it’s starting to come out and people are finally stepping up and saying stuff, I’m glad. That’s what it takes. Because one person stepping up and making allegations is gonna hurt that one person and not help anyone, especially [against] someone with that power...What industry is safe? Where is a beautiful woman, or any woman, free to walk down the street and not be a feast to some asshole’s eyes? I see how men can be. And then you give a man power? It’s scary.”

Beautiful Girls screenwriter Scott Rosenberg wrote an essay on his Facebook, which Deadline has reprinted in full. Here is an excerpt:


"So, uh, yeah.
We need to talk about Harvey.

I was there, for a big part of it.
From, what, 1994 to the early 2000s?
Something like that.

Certainly The Golden Age.

...Harvey and Bob made my first two movies.
Then they signed me to an overall deal.
Then they bought that horror script of mine about the Ten Plagues.
For a lot of money.
Also bought that werewolf-biker script.
That no one else liked but was my personal favorite.
They were going to publish my novel.
They anointed me.
Made it so other studios thought I was the real deal.
They gave me my career.

...So, yeah, I was there.
And let me tell you one thing.
Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing:

Everybody-fucking-knew.

Not that he was raping.
No, that we never heard.
But we were aware of a certain pattern of overly-aggressive behavior that was rather dreadful.
We knew about the man’s hunger; his fervor; his appetite.
There was nothing secret about this voracious rapacity; like a gluttonous ogre out of the Brothers Grimm.
All couched in vague promises of potential movie roles.

...And to me, if Harvey’s behavior is the most reprehensible thing one can imagine, a not-so-distant second is the current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of bullshit righteousness.

Because everybody-fucking-knew.

And do you know how I am sure this is true?
Because I was there.
And I saw you.
And I talked about it with you.
You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers.
And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models.
You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians.

I saw you.
All of you.
God help me, I was there with you.

Again, maybe we didn’t know the degree.
The magnitude of the awfulness.
Not the rapes.
Not the shoving against the wall.
Not the potted-plant fucking.
But we knew something.
We knew something was bubbling under.
Something odious.
Something rotten.

But…
And this is as pathetic as it is true:
What would you have had us do?
Who were we to tell?
The authorities?
What authorities?
The press?
Harvey owned the press.
The Internet?
There was no Internet or reasonable facsimile thereof.
Should we have called the police?
And said what?
Should we have reached out to some fantasy Attorney General Of Movieland?
That didn’t exist.

Not to mention, most of the victims chose not to speak out.
Aside from sharing the grimy details with a close girlfriend or confidante.
And if they discussed it with their representatives?
Agents and managers, who themselves feared The Wrath Of The Big Man?
The agents and managers would tell them to keep it to themselves.
Because who knew the repercussions?
That old saw “You’ll Never Work In This Town Again” came crawling back to putrid life like a re-animated cadaver in a late-night zombie flick.
But, yes, everyone knew someone who had been on the receiving end of lewd advances by him.
Or knew someone who knew someone."

Survivor Stories

More women are coming forward with stories of harassment and assault. 

People reports that Reese Witherspoon spoke at Elle's Women in Hollywood Event about being sexually assaulted by a director at the age of 16.

People reports that Jennifer Lawrence also spoke out at Elle's Women in Hollywood Event, recalling the time she had to participate in a nude lineup: “During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates. After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet.” After standing up for herself by talking to a male producer, she was told "he didn’t know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was ‘perfectly fuckable.”

Lena Headey recently spoke to Variety about two encounters she had with Harvey Weinstein.

Lauren Holly spoke to Variety about the time Harvey Weinstein tried to give her a massage while he was naked.

Molly Ringwald wrote an excellent essay for The New Yorker titled All The Other Harvey Weinsteins, that details her own experiences with assault and harassment in Hollywood; read it here.

"A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Gerard Butler in Motorcycle Accident

Gerard Butler opened up to Entertainment Tonight about a recent motorcycle accident. Here's what he had to say:

"I was going along the road doing my thing and this lady decided to go from parked on the other side of the road to an illegal U-Turn and went right in front of me. I smacked the car, went flying through the air and did a somersault and landed and it hurt a bit.

A lot of [bystanders] watched that happen and they're like, 'That was you?!' So I'm sitting down and my feet are killing me and my shoes are ripped and [one guy asks], 'So, how's it all goin'?' And I [tried to say], 'Well I'm supposed to be doing an action movie in about three weeks.'


[The accident was] pretty painful, [but it also] made me really appreciate how precious life is because I could have landed any number of ways that would have taken me out...I have five fractures in my right foot alone [and] a bunch of stupid stuff, a torn meniscus, but I'll be fine."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Terror In The Middle Of Nowhere

An actress told her parents this disturbing story about a very famous director and a very famous producer.

There were several people riding in a limousine to a film event. The producer and the director were talking. An assistant interrupted them with an urgent business matter.

The producer was so irate about the interruption that he instructed the limo driver to pull over, and then kicked the assistant out of the car.

They were on a road in the middle of nowhere. In a snowstorm. Sub-zero temperatures.

One woman protested, “But he’ll freeze to death!”

The producer shrugged and responded, “I’m sure somebody will come along and pick him up,” and ordered the limo driver to keep going.

The director, who has worked with the producer many times, did nothing.

Perhaps the director just needed some time to process his own feelings about the situation? After all, that seems to be his excuse for pretending to be on another planet and not noticing or intervening when the producer would terrorize employees.

Rihanna Talks Fluctuating Body Type

Rihanna recently sat down for an interview with The Cut. Here are some highlights from that interview:

So, you’re teaching a Fenty University master class. What would you want to tell young girls about how to wear clothing that fits their bodies, but also makes them feel good?
"Well, I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day — the next week — I need something oversized; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?

I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning. I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing. And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?


I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering."

And what about flip-flops for men, or shoes with no socks?
"I’m from the islands, so we don’t wear socks with shoes, especially sneakers. But it depends on the man. Like, I don’t want to see my boyfriend wearing flip-flops when he’s going to an event. But if Yusef, my hair stylist, wore some flip-flops — and I’ve seen him wear some crazy ones, especially the Versace sandals or something like that — he turns it out. It really depends on the man; you really gotta be able to pull it off."

It’s been a really hard week, with the news and everything. What do you do when you’ve had a really bad week? How do you cope and center yourself again?

"I pray a lot. A lot. And I try to just look at every situation like there’s some reason behind it. Even if I can’t feel it in that moment, I just thank God anyway, because I know that there’s something better coming, and he’s doing it for my good. I just don’t understand it right now. I look forward to when it’s revealed to me."

Jessie J - Not My Ex

James Marsters Talks Spike

James Marsters recently spoke to Page Six about his role as Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Here's what he had to say:

“To Joss Whedon, evil is not cool and I really respect that — Spike was put up as cool and evil only because he was a disposable character. He was supposed to die. It was not supposed to be romantic, but the audience was responding that way and Joss was freaking out. He backed me up against a wall one day and said, ‘I don’t care how popular you are, you are dead.' Spike was the wrong boyfriend. Spike was not ready for Buffy during the run of the show. He was way below her and because the reaction was so strong … they had to do something dramatic to prove that wasn’t true.”

On that controversial attempted rape scene in the show's sixth season:
“It was the hardest day of my professional career. It was a horrible day. I personally don’t like to watch that stuff. I will not go to a movie if I know that’s in there. I will turn the TV off if it pops up. I will pass on auditions if that's what they want me to do, but I was contracted to do it. (Marsters says the storyline came from one of the female writers who threw herself on an ex-boyfriend in college in hopes of him taking her back.) She went to his apartment and was convinced if they made love one more time that everything would be fine. He had to physically push her off and that just crushed her and stuck with her all her life.”




Billy Eichner Gets Ripped

Billy Eichner is featured in the new issue of Men's Health Magazine. Here are some highlights from that interview:

On getting in shape for his role on American Horror Story: Cult:
"I'm not looking to be The Rock. No one told me to do this. Yes, I got the personal trainer role. But I don't think the producers cared if I was in the kind of shape I'm in. I'm a comedian. I could be 400 pounds and I'd probably be more popular! If I'm being honest, I'm really doing it for me...I was a fat kid. Keep that in mind. I played John Goodman's son in an SNL sketch when I was 14. That fat. So I've come a long way."

On his work ethic:
"The first few years of Billy on the Street, I didn't want people to know how much work it took. We do a good job of making it look like I went out for a couple of weeks, got all this amazing footage, and there it is. It looks really raw and lo-fi. But we'd shoot for months and months...I have discipline. I ran this morning. Now I'm here. I did a million things in between. And I'll be up all night working. When I want something to happen, I have a very good work ethic. Including this."

On unplugging:
"It's very hard for me to leave my phone in the locker room. But I think it made my workouts way better. And just life in general. It's good to take an hour away from your phone."

On his motivation to work out:
"I enjoy dating. At some level, you want to start having sex with better-looking people. Which is why everyone is here."

Marriage Advice From Judith Light

Judith Light recently spoke to People about the secret to her marriage to husband of 32 years, Robert Desiderio. Here's what she had to say:

“I met [Robert] on One Life to Live — he was the one who said, ‘You have to leave the soap, you have to go.’ I said, ‘Go? Where am I going? I’m living in the city of my dreams, the city that I love. I’m the girl from New Jersey, I got to be in New York.’ He said, ‘There are people in another area of this business that don’t know what you can do,’ and I said, ‘Are you talking about California?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I think we should move to California.’ I thought, ‘I don’t drive. I don’t want to see sunshine every day. I want the rain. I want the snow. I want to put on my galoshes,’ and he said, ‘No, you really have to do this.’ ”

On having a long distance marriage (she lives in California, he lives in New York):
“It’s been the best. I highly recommend it. He loves California, and I would never ask him to leave there and he would never ask me to leave here. Now, mind you, I go back and I shoot Transparent and I’m there four or five months, so I’m there all the time, so then when I’m done there, I come back here and he’s flying here today, so we’re going to be together for a few days and then I’ll go back to California, so it really is this kind of supportive … we’re on each other’s team.”
