Why is this news? The casting couch has been notorious ever since film was invented. What I am waiting for is a famous actress to come out and say "The only reason I am famous is because I sha**** (insert name of whatever producer it was).

In 1921 Fatty Arbuckle was suspected of causing the death of Struggling actress Virginia Rappe, and it has happened ever since,  I think this is news as why should women be subjected to it?  I have no issue with two consenting adults doing whatever they want for personal gain or gratification,  but for that to become the norm is just plain wrong. Many women do use their natural charm and assets to get what that they want from men,  but women are not all the same.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

I hasten to add that I do not support the abuse of anyone but I just find it bizarre that it suddenly gets a lot of press especially when Hollywood and the Oscar Academy openly laud people like child rapist Roman Polanski (perhaps it's because he is politically correct?).

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

It's news because a major Hollywood boss has been brought down after harrassing women, and that's good news  ajb007/smile

Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

Meryl Streep is the number one offender. It makes me sick that Woody Allen, Polanski, and many others are protected by peers for what boils down to profit. I am glad people are talking about it but I can't figure out why more people are not up in arms about predators other than Weinstein.

I don't see how Polanski is more politically correct than Weinstein. Please explain.

I think I'll watch The Postman with my sister regardless of the reviews. We are both Jo Nesbø fans and I hear the Norwegian locations did a better job than most....

The point is he is not. It is strange that people will work with him and give him a standing ovation, despite drugging and raping a minor.  Now many of the people speaking up against Weinstein actively support Roman.

Polanski is lauded by all the left wing luvvies so it appears that all his misdemeanours can be swept under the carpet whereas right wing actors like Bill Cosby are pilloried. Don't get me wrong they are all scumbags but those left of centre are immune to Hollywood elitists and I'm sick of the hypocrisy of it all.

I don't think it's about the political views of the offenders. Both Weinstein and Cosby comitted sex crimes over many decades, but as far as I know Polanski is a one-time offender. His victim is an adult now who says Polanski should be pardoned.
