James will be fine. If anyone can weather the storm it's him. Women love the guy and he can always cry sex addict and "get help" if it gets too bad.

Prob cost him Oscar with 5 women now coming foward. His initial thing was alrrady addressed so this is kinda dumb. But with him already cancelling appearances he is clearly bothered.

Truthfully I doubt he was ever getting the Oscar. But this kills his outside shot.

I got Oldman - DDL - Chalamet in that order. Kaluuya as the deserving but also diversity option.

Maybe, but Hollywood financiers, increasingly more and more corporate, may not back films he is in. This has cost him a TON of money.

Aziz Ansari

Somewhat funny thing about this was that Aziz was with another woman two nights later, at the Curb Your Enthusiasm thing, and yet again was a piece of shit to the fans there!

Eliza Dushku

Post by Greg2600 » January 14th, 2018, 1:56 pm

Obviously this one hits a lot closer to home if you will. Eliza Dushku brought to light a horrible case of molestation done to her by prominent Stunt guy Joel Kramer during True Lies. Kramer proceeded to deny the claims, but now the child actor/set guardian from the film has backed Eliza's story.

Pretty disgusting and angering to me. Clearly this incident is what led to her life nearing being completely derailed by substance abuse.

More Eliza

Post by Greg2600 » January 14th, 2018, 5:14 pm

One final article, where Eliza's agent said she went to the producer (a woman) who did nothing. And an adult friend who threatened to beat up the abuser at the True Lies premiere. I would invite all to read this. But while reading, ignore the fact it's a movie set, and you will see how easy sexual assault can happen, and why it may not be reported for decades. Particularly if it's a child. Also gives an insight as to why I get fucking irate when someone says "why did they wait so long to say something" because either A) someone DID and nobody listened or B) the victim and family for too afraid.

Always knew Aziz was a creepo. Here's his bullshit response:
In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”

“The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything we did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

Leah Remini claims Scientology is behind claims against Paul Haggis!

Meanwhile a producer on the CW super hero shows was fired after multiple claims against him.

Aziz is a dick in person, but this woman is anonymous with really frivolous claims. She didn't like the way they "did it" well too bad. She could have told him so on the spot, how would he know? It's insulting to the women and children who were actually victimized.

Fault for what? They had sex, it was very awkward (shock), she clearly could have gotten up and left MULTIPLE times. Did Aziz behave fairly dirtbaggish? Yeah sure, so you leave. She kept the activity going. He wanted sex, she wanted some type of start to a relationship. He obviously did not, that's not really his M.O. Would I personally have behaved like him, NO, but he did not assault her. What has been discussed are sexual harassment in a working environment and assault. This is neither. Aziz is a little shit head, I've had the unfortunate luck to encounter him on several occasions. He committed no crime here.
