Reese Witherspoon Reveals she was Sexually Assaulted by a Director

More and more women reveal sad stories about Hollywood producers. And among these women are some of the most famous actresses in the world. The latest star to reveal such shocking allegations is Reese Witherspoon. Reese revealed that she was underage when she was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood director.

Such as actress Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon revealed during the Elle Women in Hollywood event that she had a very bad experience when she was a young girl trying to get some acting parts. Reese said that things got so bad for her that she was sexually assaulted by a director. Reese, who is now 41 years old, said that at that time she was only 16.

“This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world, and a lot of situations and a lot of industries are forced to remember and relive a lot of ugly truths,” the famous actress said during her speech at the event. “I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I find it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate a lot of the feelings that I’ve been having about anxiety…[and] guilt for not speaking up earlier,” the star went on to add.

Reese also claimed that she felt that she had to remain silent about what happened to her for the sake of her career. “I feel] true disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16-years-old and anger at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment,” she explained. “And I wish I could tell you that was an isolated incident in my career, but sadly it wasn’t. I’ve had multiple experiences of harassment and sexual assault, and I don’t speak about them very often,” the star added.

Reese also praised all the women who decided to speak up against Harvey Weinstein and reveal allegations of sexual harassment. The actress provided no other details and she did not reveal the name of the director. She said that she had other experiences related to sexual harassment throughout her career.

Kate Beckinsale Talks about Harvey Weinstein Abuse

Kate Beckinsale is one of the famous actresses who has been a victim to sexual harassment conducted by Harvey Weinstein. The actress revealed her experience in an Instagram post. The Underworld star claimed that it all happened when she was only 17 years old.

Kate revealed that she had a very uncomfortable meeting with Weinstein back then. The star said that she was called to meet the famous Hollywood producer at the Savoy Hotel. The famous actress, who is now 44 years old, said that she believed the meeting will be taking place in a conference room, which was actually something very common when it comes to such encounters. However, things didn’t happen like that.

Actually, Kate said that when she arrived at the hotel, she was told to go up to Weinstein’s room. “He opened the door in his bathrobe,” the actress said. “I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him. After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed,” Kate explained.

Kate also said that she was shocked years later when she met Weinstein once again. “A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting,” she said. “I realized he couldn’t remember if he had assaulted me or not. I had what I thought were boundaries – I said no to him professionally many times over the years – some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a c**t and making threats, some of which made him laughingly tell people oh ‘Kate lives to say no to me,'” she added.

Kate said that the fact that she said no to things actually harmed her career and she never received support from anyone, naturally, except for her family. Kate also praised all the women who decided to speak up and share their experience involving the famous Hollywood producer. She also claimed that such behavior has created a climate of fear in Hollywood. “I had a male friend who, based on my experience, warned a young actress who said she was going to dinner with Harvey to be careful,” she said.

However, that woman was already sleeping with Weinstein, so the friend “received a phone call the next day saying he would never work in another Miramax film.” “Let’s remember that Harvey is an emblem of a system that is sick, and that we have work to do,” she concluded.

Anna said that her marriage to Indra was no longer working, had “many red flags” and neither of the two “were happy in the relationship.”

Anna said that she started to develop feelings for Chris despite her marriage and she even felt jealous when she saw a background actress in his presence. Anna said that at one point it was quite visible that she and Chris had something. So, at the advice of one friend, Anna called her husband and told him that she wanted the divorce. Anna said that the conversation was not simple.

“I had to repeat myself a number of times before he took me at my word. ‘You’re just tired; you’re really tired,’ he responded at first. I just said: ‘Nope, I’m leaving you,'” she said to her husband. The actress revealed that when she went back to the set she told everyone that she was getting divorced. “Pretty soon I was knocking on Chris’ door and was basically like, ‘Hi, I’m ready to get boned,’ ” she said.

She said that it all happened in 2000, when she was working at the movie Get Over It. The actress revealed that Weinstein asked her to come to his hotel room and told her to give him a massage. The actress said that Weinstein also told her that he would not let her leave unless she kissed him.

Actress Rose McGowan Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Rape

Famous actress Rose McGowan had a very serious allegation to share about Harvey Weinstein. The popular actress accused Weinstein of rape. Rose becomes this way one of the few women who have raised rape allegations against the Hollywood producer. Dozens of women have accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, but only few shared the very serious allegations of rape.

Rose revealed what had happened to her in relation to Weinstein in some Twitter posts. The star claimed that she actually complained to Amazon Studio chief Roy Price, but he ignored her. Things are not looking good for Roy Price, either, as he was placed on leave of absence after a woman brought sexual harassment allegations against him, as well.

“Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co,” Amazon stated. Isa Hackett claimed that Price made sexual related proposals to her in a taxi and at a corporate dinner. The events happened in 2015, she said. Isa is a producer of one of Amazon’s shows. She said she immediately complained to Amazon’s executives about what happened. The company started an investigation, bringing an outside investigator to check the validity of the claims.

Isa said that she was never informed on what the investigation found. However, she was never again put in the situation of working with Price. She said he never attended events involving her shows.

“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” Rose wrote in her post addressing Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon. “Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.” So, the actress criticised Amazon for doing business with Weinstein, despite knowing about his behavior.

Of course, Weinstein has denied the sexual assaults, but the New York Police Department and the London Met Police have started investigations on the allegations. A lawyer for the Hollywood producer said that any sexual contacts Weinstein had were consensual.

According to some sources talking to the celebrity site, Harry has actually proposed in secret to Meghan and the two will be making the announcement next month. Allegedly, Harry only shared the happy news with parents, and the two stars are enjoying this time. Insiders claimed that most likely the reason why Harry and Meghan want to wait before making the announcement is actually linked to security issues. “It’d be a security nightmare to do it sooner. She’d be followed everywhere,” an insider said.

The source also claimed that Meghan will definitely move to London after she finishes filming Suits. The two are expected to hold a small press event to make the announcement and most likely will reveal nothing on the subject until then. Well, fans don’t have that much to wait after all, as the filming for Suits will end soon.

As imagined, there is absolutely no comment from Meghan or Harry on any of the rumors that have been on regarding their romance. However, the two did make their first public appearance as a couple at the Invictus Games. They arrived holding hands at the event and they were even spotted kissing. So, Harry and Meghan don’t plan on hiding their love.

Lea Seydoux Talks about Harvey Weinstein and Sexual Abuse

Lea Seydoux is one of the latest stars to open up about Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual abuse. Lea appears to be one of the victims of the famous producer. The scandal started after a series of women, including famous actresses, accused Harvey of sexual harassment and abuse.

Lea revealed during an op-ed for the Guardian that it all happened during a night after a fashion show. She claimed that she first met Weinstein at that fashion show, and he insistently asked her to make an appointment that night. Lea claimed that she realized what his intentions were, but she finally agreed to have the meeting. The actress said that they met in the lobby of his hotel and Weinstein’s assistant was present at first.

“All throughout the evening, he flirted and stared at me as if I was a piece of meat. He acted as if he were considering me for a role. But I knew that was bulls**t,” the star said. “He invited me to come to his hotel room for a drink. We went up together. It was hard to say no because he’s so powerful,” she added. The star revealed that soon after they arrived in the hotel room, Weinstein’s assistant left and they remained alone.

Of course, after that moment Weinstein started to be more visible when it comes to his moves. “We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted,” she said. The star revealed that after that night she met Weinstein on several other occasions.

She said that she saw him trying to convince women to give him what he wanted. She claimed that Weinstein is a man who uses his power to always get what he wants. However, an interesting thing that Lea said is that Weinstein is not the only movie director who has acted inappropriately. She said that she had other experiences working with other directors who tried to kiss her or told her that they wished to have sex with her.

FBI to Investigate Harvey Weinstein

It seems that the FBI has also joined the case involving Harvey Weinstein. It has been reported that the FBI started an investigation against Weinstein, following allegations of sexual harassment and rape from several women.

The Daily Mail reported that the FBI’s decision was rushed by rumors that Weinstein was planning on leaving the Unites States to move to Europe. This means that he might be able to avoid prosecution. So, the FBI will be looking into the allegations against Weinstein. A TMZ report claimed that Weinstein was actually planning on leaving the country this week and fly to Switzerland. The same report claimed that the Hollywood producer later changed his mind.

The star wanted to go to Europe to get treatment for sex addiction. However, it was reported that his team finally found a facility for him to attend in Arizona. Weinstein will allegedly get treatment for sex addiction and behavioral issues at this facility. However, this does not mean that things are looking better for Weinstein.

In fact, the producer is constantly linked to new sexual harassment allegations. While more women start to speak up about his abuses, some cases have also been reported outside of the US. So, reportedly, there are five accusers talking about his misconduct in France, as well as some in London, although the exact number has not been revealed for the moment. Most likely, the FBI will collaborate with the local authorities when it comes to their investigation.

One of the most serious allegations against Weinstein had been made by Lucia Evans, who said that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him. Lucia said she was a student who wanted to become an actress in 2004, when this happened. The incident occurred in New York. Several actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd, claimed that they were sexually harassed by Weinstein on different occasions at the beginning of their careers. They each shared different stories on how the abuse happened.

Rose McGowan Says Ben Affleck Lies in Harvey Weinstein Statement

The world of Hollywood has definitely been shaken by the latest scandal that emerged only a couple of days ago. A series of women, including famous actresses, claimed that they have been victims of sexual harassment by famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Of course, a series of stars took to social media to express their regret and say that they were never aware of the abuses.

Ben Affleck shared a message on Twitter saying that he was angry that this has happened, but he did not mention if he ever knew about Weinstein’s behavior. Affleck had worked with Weinstein at several movies, including Good Will Hunting, which made Affleck a star.

“I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick,” the actor said. “This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters,” the star’s message added.

However, his statement was not appreciated at all by actress Rose McGowan, who actually accused Ben of knowing about Weinstein’s behavior and lying for him. Rose said that she personally told Ben about Weinstein inappropriately behaving with her. Rose said that Ben told her that Weinstein also mistreated other women.

Affleck made no other statements following the allegations formulated by Rose McGowan. On the other hand, it is also important to mention that Rose also provided no additional details on her statement. Thus, it remains to be clarified what this all means. McGowan and Weinstein reached a settlement back in 1997. She received $100,000 from Weinstein after accusing him of sexual harassment in a hotel room.

Meanwhile, Weinstein has denied all the allegations made against him. He did apologize for “the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past,” but provided no other details.

Matt Damon Denies Covering Up for Harvey Weinstein

Without a doubt, the subject of the moment when it comes to the world of celebrities involves Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment, abuse and even rape by a series of famous women. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie or Rosanna Arquette have talked against the movie producer.

However, along with Weinstein, some other famous names were also dragged into the scandal. One of them is popular actor Matt Damon. Damon was accused of trying to cover up Weinstein’s mistakes, allegation which the actor denied. So, reporter Sharon Waxman accused Damon of trying to “kill” a story about Weinstein about 13 years ago.

The reporter said that she became aware of some rumors indicating that one of Weinstein’s employees in Italy was trying to procure women for him. However, she did not get to investigate too much, because she soon got a phone call from Damon and actor Russell Crowe, who wanted to vouch for the employee. Finally, the story was never published and the allegations were never made public. According to the reporter, Weinstein had actually asked Damon and Crowe to call her and make her take the story back.

“They were calling me to vouch for this executive. They were calling me to say that they knew the guy, they hung out with him in Italy, and he seemed like a good guy,” Waxman said. Well, Matt Damon denied conspiring with Weinstein or knowing about any allegations. He said he never tried to end the story. “I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story like that,” the Hollywood star said according to Deadline. “I just wouldn’t do that. It’s not something I would do, for anybody,” he went on to add.

The actor also said that Weinstein told him that the story was about the executive not having professional experience, and Weinstein asked Damon to “tell her that he was a professional and you had a good experience, and that was it”. “I was never conscripted to do anything. We vouch for each other, all the time,” he explained. “I’m sure I mentioned to her that I didn’t know anything about the rest of her piece, because I didn’t,” the actor concluded. Damon also said that he never knew about Weinstein’s behavior related to sexual abuse allegations.
