“Hollywood Movie Crew Peeper Filmed Dozens of Unwitting Naked Women”

“There is a predatory relationship that I try to keep at bay from cast and crew, but The bigger problem is that allowing such people into our productions legitimizes both them and their behavior. It makes it okay to be at a Sundance party with a bunch of 50-year-old men partying and preying on twentysomething women. It makes it okay to casually and publicly talk about the women you want to fuck. And when you create a space where this behavior is okay, people you would want to be professionals—producers, lawyers, agents and managers—suddenly find it acceptable to treat women like their playthings. And it is never okay.”

“Jann Wenner and his biographer are no longer on speaking terms.”

“Anger demands action, some kind of aim, an expectation of justice. And I have not felt for a long time that my anger would find a resolution. This isn’t the first time I’ve written an essay about gendered violence. I wrote a whole novel about it. But here I am, again. And even as I write this, any anger I feel ebbs into weariness.”

“Let me say clearly and explicitly that I am very sorry,” Bialik wrote on Twitter. “What you wear and how you behave does not provide any protection from assault, nor does the way you dress or act in any way make you responsible for being assaulted; you are never responsible for being assaulted.”

“When Cranston, who has the densest Google calendar I’ve ever seen (seriously, it’s almost completely red), says he’s busy, he means he’s genuinely pleased. “Because I’ve been outside, knocking,” he said, sitting in a neat suit at the Crosby Street Hotel the day before, tapping his knuckles in a way that caused the people next to us to jump. “And now I’m inside.”

“Harvey Weinstein, it is clear, is a monster, a sociopathic ogre, and I applaud the journalists who dragged the full scope of his reign of terror into the light of day, and survivors who have spoken out will have my heart forever. But Harvey is not the whole story. There are many Harveys, with varying amounts of influence, at every level in this industry. And at every level, formally and informally, they are covered for. Fuck that. I can’t name my attacker for legal reasons. But I won’t be silent any more. A television executive assaulted me, and the specific power dynamics of this industry aid and abet men like him.”

Kim Masters and Lesley Goldberg on the Fall of Amazon Studios’ Roy Price

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

“Amazon was offered a chance to lock up ‘Big Little Lies.’ Other bidders made straight-to-series offers. Price would only offer a development deal, and company insiders say at a staff holiday party at the Lucky Strike in Hollywood, Price asked staffers if the two stars would ‘show their —s’ and mused aloud why he would greenlight the show if they didn’t. ‘Big Little’ Lies went to HBO and won eight Emmys — four times more than Amazon’s overall haul.”
