He's English and has a large vocabulary. Sorry, I mean "his ethnological loquaciousness imparts the appearance of intelligence vis a vis the speaker and his coterie."

That's not it, but I'm charmed you think I'm so easily impressed.

I wonder if there was a Scientology agreement she made to stay until now. It seems strange that Phillips would go through the humiliation of standing by her man through this whole thing just to file for divorce as soon as he was convicted.

You probably get a much more favorable ruling once your spouse has been sentenced and convinced of multiple rape charges.

It could just be to protect her career (or her attempt to restart her career).
Casting someone who's married to and continually supporting a man who was sentenced to 30 years for raping multiple women turns off a lot of people.

Working actress. But hasn’t worked in 10 years according to IMDB. Has never been a star. She’s the daughter of John Phillips from The Mamas and Papas. And half sister of MacKenzie and Chyna Phillips.

Which means she’s very likely fucked in the head.

Her involvement with Scientology and marriage to a rapist probably exacerbates the condition.

She was originally cast as Penny Lane, but it became apparent quickly that she couldn't act, so Kate Hudson was elevated from sister Anita to Penny Lane, Zoe Deschanel was cast as the new Anita and Bijou gets one scene at the top of the ramp at the San Diego Sports Arena.

^ Almost Famous is literally the only movie I know she was in and I couldn’t remember her having any lines. I just thought she was like “Groupie #3” or something.

I do find it funny that Bijou is with the other Band Aids in San Diego, and they all convince William to come with them across America, but somehow Bijou never appears again. Sure she could just be hanging with a different group but she just vanishes.

So she's Bijou Phillips. I know who that is. I just had no idea she was married to DM. Or that DM was married at all, for that matter.

The point is that she isn't famous enough on her own or as DM's wife for her personal life to be an issue. I'm watching something on Prime right now and there are 3 actors on the screen I don't know from anywhere, so they could be cannibals IRL and it wouldn't matter.

Julia Ormond Sues Harvey Weinstein for Battery, CAA and Disney as Enablers of Sexual Assault


https://variety.com/2023/film/news/j...ey-1235744853/

In a lawsuit filed Wednesday morning in New York Supreme Court, obtained by Variety, Ormond claims that Weinstein sexually assaulted her in 1995.

“The men at CAA who represented Ormond knew about Weinstein. So too did Weinstein’s employers at Miramax and Disney,” the lawsuit states. “Brazenly, none of these prominent companies warned Ormond that Weinstein had a history of assaulting women because he was too important, too powerful, and made them too much money.”

Is he normally that creepy-looking, or did Rolling Stone just happen to use the creepiest-looking photo of him they could find?

My wife just asked this exact question when I showed her the Tweet.

I searched for images of him and he looks creepy in everything in the last few years. And he's obviously either wearing a wig or had a hair transplant.

The Anton Chigurh hairdo isn’t doing Elfman any favors. He’s looks far less creepy with short hair.

Of course as a ginger, he’s evil either way…

Gene Simmons kept a photo album as a kind of bro proof about how many girls he had banged. I'd bet that the same album could be used as proof that those smiling girls were there consensually.
