At least he didn't make Snowpiercer any worse than it already was.

You're talking about people defending the likes of Roman Polanski, Woody Allen, etc. right?

A Qatari company called BeIn owns the Miraxmax name and I believe its film library as well.

Speaking of Bob Weinstein, what the hell man? He cannot say that he knew nothing.

Probably, but apparently the two are somewhat estranged, weren't even on speaking terms, though not sure how long that has been going on.

We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters. We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.
I'd maybe possibly believe Ben Affleck if not for the fact that his girlfriend at the time was one of the harassment victims. If there is one thing that Gwyneth Paltrow isn't known for, it's keeping her opinions to herself.

? The article says Brad Pitt was her boyfriend at the time went to him first and he confronted Harvey. It actually got her berated by Weinstein over the phone. Though I'm sure Affleck at least knew of the rumors.

Yeah I know. She was with Pitt from 1994-1997 and Affleck 1997-2000. Do you think she never mentioned Harvey's advances to Ben or do you think she forgot about them?

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

Not about Weinstein, but even Terry fuckin' Crews has a story to tell about a Hollywood exec...
Starts here:

edit: Oh, he didn't do it as a proper thread. Boo. Go to his page and you'll see all the posts I guess.

Rose McGowan (Ben Affleck's co-star in Miramax's movie Phantoms) has replied to his statement with a terse and simple "Ben Affleck fuck off". He's lying if he says he never knew.

While I 100% believe all of the allegations against Weinstein, McGowan has been on the warpath against the Hollywood elite for a few years now. Can't really take her serious.

Ashley Judd was one sexy hot cute little piece of ass back in the day. Damn I can't imagine her being in that hotel seeing him wearing a towel and him requesting her pussy.

This line of thinking is a reversal but is also sexist and degrading.

It serves to cast suspicion on actresses (like a G Paltrow) who had many successes with Mirimax, that they owe their career to "slutty" behavior

Yeah. Why say that shit for? If you're not going to name names, why bring it up? Respect their privacy, because all this is doing is getting the public thinking about it more and, like you said, casting suspicion on ALL the actresses that worked with Weinstein.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

Remember when Rose McGowan went after Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse billboard? For portraying violence against women. Do you think that things like this help contribute or foster the environment that this stuff is permissable?
I mean, it was even mentioned that Seth MacFarlane made a joke about actresses having to pretend that Harvey Weinstein is attractive, and people laughed about it.

Not really. all she has done is bitch every time she didn't get a role the last few years. Did everyone abuse her?

Also, I bet anyone who says this has never been falsely accused of something legally in the public eye. I have, though not of this nature, and it's beyond frustrating and stressful to get settled out.

Miramax did not become TWC. TWC is/was a new company created when they left Miramax.

Re: Decades of Sexual Harassment Accusations Against Harvey Weinstein (New York Times

His wife is leaving him.


https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...235023319.html

Quote:
Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, is leaving him — as more women continue to step forward to accuse the movie mogul of decades of sexual harassment and assault.

Weinstein, 65, and Chapman, 41, married in 2007 and have two children together — India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” Chapman says in a statement to PEOPLE.

In the wake of the first allegations by multiple women in a New York Times report, Weinstein, who has denied allegations of nonconsensual sex, initially said Chapman was standing behind him.

“She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length,” Weinstein told the New York Post, adding that Chapman was helping him become “a better human” and to “apologize to people for my bad behavior, to say I’m sorry, and to absolutely mean it.”

On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from his powerhouse film studio.

“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company — Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar — have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,” the Weinstein Company said in a statement.

In the NYT report that ran last week, eight women — including actress Ashley Judd — spoke out against Weinstein, accusing him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.

On Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie added their own accounts of alleged mistreatment. Paltrow told the NYT that Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room after hiring her for the lead role in Emma when she was 22. The encounter allegedly ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting a massage.

Jolie also told the outlet that she had a “bad experience” with Weinstein in a hotel room during the release of Playing by Heart in the late ’90s.

Also on Tuesday, the The New Yorker revealed — among 13 different women’s accounts of alleged sexual harassment, assault or rape — that the mogul allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on Italian actress Asia Argento two decades ago. Actresses Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette also claimed that after rejecting Weinstein’s unwanted advances, they were removed from or kept from being hired for projects.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorker piece, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

Good. She is way too good looking to fuck around on.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Harvey offs himself at this point. Found dead in his bath robe.
