1) @jeffbezos I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.

That proves it's not about sex with these sickos, it's about the gratification of power over someone in making them do something against their will. Very sick and dangerous person.


This is exactly it, just about to post this. All about power and control.
his approach was pretty systemic and practiced  
Nitro : 10/12/2017 6:50 pm : link
in the leak audio it is interesting how you can see what is tantamount to his sales tactics at work - first, it being better to ask for forgiveness than permission "I'm sorry I did that to you yesterday' after already groping her, then he asks for just a simple, easy favor 'just come in for one minute' aka foot in the door and when she still rebuffs him he hits her with 'fine, goodbye, the friendship is over' ultimatum.

This was well practiced and probably worked most of the time and is pretty textbook abuse of power. He's a sack of shit for whom suicide is an easy way out.

Wait. What? 15 minutes are up so she has to come out as being a rape victim? Is that what you're saying? Please clarify.

This is a marginal actress that seems to delight in stirring up shit. Most recently this includes her whining about Twitter, and her whining about Amazon. In the past it involves her outrageous statements about gay men.

I believe Ashley Judd's and Angela Jolie's accounts about Weinstein. This loon ? I'm not so sure.


So you're not sure that she was raped? Based on what? There is a clear pattern and issue here, yet you think she's a loon?

I was briefly on the Disney beat when they owned Miramax. My beat moved into post-production, visual effects and technology, so I didn't have much occasion to get into Miramax & Weinsten Co. stuff, but:

It was an "open secret" that Harvey Weinstein was an abusive boss, a bully, a screamer, a guy who'd thrown things at employees and injured them and had to pay settlements to them, and also a guy who was gross with women. But I don't think it was widely known how bad it was over there. It was a criminal enterprise. The whole company was diverted by Harvey's predatory activities. He turned his female assistants and executives into accomplices (and I use that term deliberately-some may face criminal liability).

Lots of reporters tried to nail the abusive-Harvey story over the years. The two stories that recently broke are amazing work. Good for those reporters. The abusive-boss story is still out there to be broken, but will be an anticlimax.

NBC should be ashamed of itself.

And while Harvey certainly had media enablers and accomplices, he had to pay those women off because he knew that if he didn't, and enough of them went to the press, someone would run the story. If not Variety, the Hollywood Reporter. If not the Reporter, the LA Times. If not the LA Times, the NY Times. Or the Wall Street Journal. Someone. He didn't have enough clout or enough friends or enough money to silence everybody, so he silenced the victims and his employees. Until now.

A lotta shoes still to drop. There are probably hundreds of victims. Maybe thousands, over a decades-long career.


Some amazing investigative reporting being done in America right now. These people take a lot of shit and in some cases risk their reputation and livelihood to get information out to the masses. Good for them.

I think what Weinstein did was horrible -- and it is finally coming out ..
I had a friend who worked for him in the 90s and he was a horrible boss who was abusive toward all his employees which looking back seems like it actually coverup this sexual harassment ..

but I have one question Rose McGowan was paid $100K settlement
which probably had an NDA involved in it ..

like how can she talk about it without getting massively sued by Weinstein ?

This is above even O'Reilly & Ailes (which is not to excuse how gross & creepy they are). Weinstein is a true predator. Probably won't see jailtime though...too rich and likely minimal hard evidence.



Seth McFarlane made a joke about it when announcing the best supporting actress nominations for the 2012 Oscars. Something like "congratulations, you don't have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein anymore".
That joke was in response to a good friend as one of his victims.

Farrow had a lot of material already. In March, he had acquired a damning and much-coveted audio recording in which Weinstein admits to having groped an Italian model. He had interviews with former executives and assistants who’d worked closely with Weinstein who spoke about the culture of harassment and abuse he perpetrated. And now he had someone ready to accuse Weinstein of rape, on camera.


But at that moment Farrow was also caught in the pincers of an NBC News edict. He had been told by executives at NBC News that he didn’t have enough reporting to go on air with his Weinstein story, according to four sources, and he had been told by the network to stop reporting on it. NBC tried to put a stop to the interview with the woman accusing Weinstein of rape. The network insisted he not use an NBC News crew for the interview, and neither was he to mention his NBC News affiliation. And so that was how Ronan Farrow wound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview.

This is the piece that Weinstein allegedly asked Matt Damon (in Italy filming at the time) to help cover up.

That is disturbing, as at least Streep, Dench and Damon could be viewed as respected Statesmen for the Industry with little controversy of their own. But by all accounts, actors make their careers out of pretending to be people they aren't.

Also you have Roman Polanski who anally raped a 13 year old girl. He was arrested in Europe in 2009 and 100 actors/film makers/directors etc signed a petition to have him released including some big ones:

Woody Allen
Monica Bellucci
Buck Henry
David Lynch
Michael Mann
Martin Scorcese
Tilda Swinton


The Polanski case is really interesting and complex because the victim herself has always wanted to case against him to be dropped. She says she was far less traumatized by Polanski's actions than the media circus it caused and seems to resent that the portrayal of the rape does not meet the reality of it.

Honestly, I wouldn't buy it from anyone. Any at least midlevel actor, director, producer, whatever over the last 25 years has to have at least heard rumors. That's why the jokes were getting into 30 Rock episodes and the Oscars show, because the writers were expecting their audience to get the jokes. Most of them likely heard a lot more than just rumors, too - quite a few of them probably know at least one victim personally.

agemiller says Weinstein made multiple advances toward her throughout the two-month period that the movie was shot, including forcing her to kiss him, and that while she talked about Weinstein’s behavior to cast and others but that everyone from her agents to Weinstein’s producing partners and everyone else in the business told her not to “cause any trouble,” that “Harvey’s Harvey” and that if she spoke out too much, it would “definitely hurt your career.”

One incident Sagemiller recounted was where Weinstein coaxed her into his hotel room to “discuss the script.” She got a call from one of Weinstein’s assistants telling her to go to Weinstein’s hotel room. She told the assistant she wasn’t comfortable with that but the assistant insisted. Sagemiller told her boyfriend before going to the room. When she arrived, Weinstein was in a robe, had drinks ready, and asked her to give him a massage. She said no. He told her he was going to shower, and later told her that she can’t leave until she kisses him. He then walked in front of the door and put his hand on it, then referenced that Renée Zellweger and Charlize Theron “did it.”

“‘Well, Renée did it and Charlize did it and this other actress did it. Don’t you want your career to be more than just this little teen film?” I said, ‘No, I’m not interested, thank you very much.’ He said, ‘Well, you can’t leave until you kiss me.’ He literally would not let me leave. I said fine and kissed him on the lips. He sort of held my head and made me kiss him, and then he’s like, ‘OK, you can go now. That’s all I wanted. Just do what I say and you can get your way.'”

Former “Sports Illustrated” model Angie Everhart says Harvey Weinstein masturbated in front of her on a boat during the Cannes Film Festival over 10 years ago.

“This isn’t really easy to talk about,” she told TMZ on Friday. “I was on a friend’s boat. Harvey walked in, walked in front of me, took his pants down, did his thing, exited on the floor, if you know what I mean, pulled his pants back up, said ‘You’re a really nice girl. Don’t tell anybody about this,’ and left.”

She added that she had just arrived at the festival and went to take a nap when she awoke to find him standing above her.

“He was blocking the door,” she said, “I couldn’t get out.”

Everhart, 48, said she immediately told everyone what happened.

“I told people on the boat. I told people at the dinner I was at. Everybody was like, ‘Oh, that’s just Harvey,'” she explained. “When I talked about it before, nobody listened and now people are listening and … I’m glad people are listening so it doesn’t happen anymore because it’s not OK … This kind of behavior is not OK.”

After the incident, she steered clear of Weinstein, although she says she saw him all the time.

“There isn’t a single person who is anybody in this business who doesn’t know that Harvey Weinstein has been like that,” she said of celebrities who have been claiming not to know. “If they know Harvey, they know he’s been like that.”
