    Embattled actor George Takei has apologized for a recent interview with Howard Stern in which he joked about sexually assaulting men, after the former Star Trek star was accused last week of groping a male model in an alleged incident in 1981. In a social media post, Takei said he attempted to play the role of a “naughty gay grandpa” whilst appearing on the radio show, adding that it was a “caricature that I now regret.” “Many have raised concern over a back-and-forth between Howard Stern and myself, where we joked about me touching men during my ‘Star Trek’ days...

    TV series are including more LGBTQ characters and adding gender-nonconforming ones, but there’s a need for richer, more complex stories about them, according to the media advocacy group GLAAD. LGBTQ depictions increased in the current season across broadcast, cable and streaming platforms, the group’s annual Where We Are on TV study released Thursday found. Shows contributing to the change include NBC’s reboot of “Will & Grace” and “The Deuce” on HBO. […] Of the 901 characters set to appear regularly on prime-time network series in the 2017-18 season, 6.4 percent are identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender or queer....

    Charlie Sheen is being accused of sodomizing a then 13-year-old Corey Haim on the set of the movie 'Lucas.' According to the National Enquirer, a now deceased Haim had told others about how he was allegedly raped as a minor by Sheen, who was 19 at the time, while filming the 1986 movie, including former actor, Dominick Brascia, who went on the record about what he says Haim told him. 'Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed 'Lucas,' Brascia, told the Enquirer. 'He told me they smoked pot and had sex. He said they had anal...

    Sony Entertainment has canceled the American Film Institute premiere of the film All the Money in the World amid a litany of sexual abuse allegations against actor Kevin Spacey. “All the Money in the World is a superb film and more than worthy of its place of honor in the AFI Fest,” TriStar Pictures, the film division of Sony Entertainment, said in a statement, Deadline reports. “But given the current allegations surrounding one of its actors and out of respect for those impacted, it would be inappropriate to celebrate at a gala at this difficult time. Accordingly, the film will...
  • Harvey Weinstein says Charlie Chaplin was his ‘idol’ – he certainly seems to have taken after him

    In February 2012 Harvey Weinstein co-hosted a dinner to honour Charlie Chaplin’s services to the movie industry. In attendance that night, among many Hollywood stars, was Rose McGowan, who has since levelled accusations of rape against Weinstein. Asked about the occasion, Weinstein then remarked that he regarded Chaplin to be “one of my idols, certainly”. At the time, this appeared to be a fairly run of the mill commemoration in Tinseltown, but, in the light of recent revelations about Weinstein, we may now have to view it in a rather different light. The Weinstein story is in part a parable...

    Iconic actress Michelle Pfeiffer chimed in on the sexual assault and harassment scandal consuming Hollywood, telling the BCC on Sunday that abuse of women in the film industry is “systemic.” “I have never worked with Harvey,” Pfeiffer said of disgraced indy film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by more the 60 women. “I have had some experiences, and I have to say, since this has all come out there really hasn’t been one woman that I’ve talked to who hasn’t had an experience. And it just really goes to show you how systemic...

    Two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met with the actress Rose McGowan, who eventually publicly accused Weinstein of rape, to extract information from her. One of the investigators pretended to be a women’s-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with McGowan. The same operative, operating under a different false identity and implying that she had an allegation against Weinstein, met twice with a journalist to find out which women were talking to the press. In other cases, journalists directed by Weinstein or the private investigators interviewed women and reported back the details. The explicit goal...

    If there was a fancy Malibu rehab center for Trump Derangement Syndrome it would be jam packed with celebrities right now. Ten months into Trump’s first term Hollywood actors, directors, comedians and singers are STILL having trouble coping with life under President Trump. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell confessed her sick obsession: “I spend like pretty much 90 percent of my waking hours tweeting hatred” towards Trump. And for some celebs Trump became a literal nightmare they can’t wake up from. Actor Rob Reiner whined: “I’m in a nightmare that doesn’t ever stop,” and hippie-singer David Crosby wailed about the “orange nightmare...

    Tinseltown is no longer glittering. The movie industry was already foundering because of technological advances in media and entertainment. The latest string of flops pouring out of the studios has signaled that Hollywood's malaise is bad, really bad this time. But it’s good for us. The liberal, progressive agenda thrived on big money from media moguls and movie stars. Moviegoers were funding this institution, which invested in candidates and causes against our freedom, our traditional values, our constitution, and our Judeo-Christian culture. There is no better representative of Hollywood’s epic down fall than Kevin Spacey. This actor would sing, dance,...

    WASHINGTON -- "Sex is a beautiful thing." Remember that solemnity being intoned endlessly by the sex prophets of the '60s, '70s and '80s? Of course, the more recent prophets were preceded by the sexual psychopaths of the '20s and '30s. There is a long history to the absurdity of sexual utopia. Yet by the 1960s, the sex prophets were on the hem of marketing their balderdash to a mass market, and by the early days of the 21st century, they had their market. The "sex is a beautiful thing" crusaders had found their followers in the public school system, pop...

    Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who performed in several plays at London’s Old Vic theater when Kevin Spacey was artistic director there from 2004 to 2015, has accused the House of Cards star of sexual harassment. “I myself had a couple of unpleasant encounters with Spacey that were on the edge of being considered assault,” Cavazos wrote in a recent Facebook post. “It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr. Spacey to feel free to touch us.” The 35-year-old actor, said, “there are a lot of us who have a ‘Kevin Spacey...

    Andy Dick has been fired off the set of the upcoming comedy film “Raising Buchanan” following allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. Two sources with knowledge of the situation told The Hollywood Reporter that Mr. Dick was accused of groping people’s genitals, unwanted kissing and licking and making sexual advances on at least four members of the production. The actor confirmed he was fired from the film and admitted to some inappropriate behavior like licking and making advances, but denied that he groped anyone, THR reported. “I don’t grope people anymore. I don’t expose myself anymore,” Mr. Dick told...

    Actor Kevin Spacey said that he has "loved and had romantic encounters with men" and that he chooses "now to live as a gay man," after being accused of an unwanted encounter with a 14-year-old. Spacey's remarks came in a tweet posted on Sunday night after "Star Trek: Discovery” star Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey climbed on top of him in bed when he was just 14 years old. "I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. I'm beyond horrified to hear this story," Spacey said. "I honestly do not remember the encounter ......

    Kathy Griffin attacked TMZ founder Harvey Levin and leaked his personal phone number in a video posted online Saturday, accusing the media personality of being “in bed” both with Hollywood figures and President Donald Trump. In the 17-minute video, titled “A Hell of a Story,” Griffin played a voicemail from Levin — long considered one of the most influential media personalities in Hollywood — in which his personal phone number could be heard. “So, that’s his number. I don’t have a minute to call him. Maybe you do,” Griffin says in the clip. TMZ was instrumental in breaking the news...

    I knew of Harvey Weinstein, and I'd heard that he possessed the power to make or break careers, that he was bombastic and that he pushed people around. But that pretty much was the extent of it. After all, this is Hollywood, where only a small percent of would-be actors and actresses in the Screen Actors Guild earn enough to make a full-time living in their chosen profession. In this town -- and especially in the acting community -- anxiety is the norm. A friend and former studio executive once invited me to a cocktail party he was hosting to...

The industry didnÂ’t want you as a customer if you wear a red MAGA hat. Oh, celebrities didnÂ’t actually mouth those words. Instead, they embedded their disgust for both President Donald Trump and his admirers in nearly everything they did. - Movies. - TV shows - Late night monologues. - PSAs - Press interviews - Social media We got the message, even if they didnÂ’t actually say it.

    We know Hollywood moguls are infamous for taking advantage of aspiring young actresses. The movie producer's casting couch has been a "tradition" since Tinsel Town began. But Harvey Weinstein must be setting some kind of record. His sexual rap sheet gets longer every day. Since the New York Times broke the stories about his serial misconduct earlier this month, more than 40 actresses, studio workers and models have come forward to accuse the powerful producer of everything from sexual harassment to rape. Now the L.A. Times is reporting that the LAPD is investigating charges by an Italian model-actress that Weinstein...

You will know when that time comes! . . . Let me add, this not about fear of being sued! Yes, that’s a real possibility but the bigger reason is safety 4 my family.”</p>
  • ‘I’m Not That Guy,’ Weinstein Blubbered to Employees

    Harvey Weinstein sobbed and pleaded, “I’m not that guy. I’m not that guy,” to an assistant after the first bombshell article on the movie mogul’s sexual harassment allegations came out, according to a new report. But his employees were the ones weeping when a second huge story came out days later — containing rape accusations and audio of Weinstein admitting to groping a model — as they realized they may have unwittingly enabled the predatory producer, the New Yorker reports. “People were having a wave of retroactive memories,” an unnamed staffer tells the magazine. “Some of the stories were within...

    In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among others, praised the Weinstein accusers for their "courage." For decades, Weinstein, a big Democratic donor who could make or break Hollywood careers, apparently preyed on young women. Over 30 women have now come forth, with five alleging rape. But where were Hollywood's social justice warriors the last 30 years? After all, Hollywood insiders call Weinstein's behavior Hollywood's worst kept secret. The television series "Entourage," based on the world of Hollywood agents, portrayed an obnoxious, browbeating character, Harvey Weingard, clearly based on Weinstein. On NBC's series...
