Lena Headey Was Sexually Harassed by Harvey Weinstein

The number of famous women to bring sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein is growing. The latest star to reveal such a bad experience was actually Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey. The star claimed that she was sexually harassed by the famous producer.

The actress claimed that she felt powerless, she rejected Weinstein and she was threatened not to tell anyone about what happened. Lena opened up about her experience in a series of Twitter posts. The star said that it all happened at the Venice film festival and at a hotel in Los Angeles.

So, Lena first met Weinstein in Venice when she was promoting The Brothers Grimm. The star said that Weinstein asked her to walk with him and she was shocked by his behavior. “At one point Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture. I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked,” the famous actress revealed.

She added that she told Weinstein to get back inside. “I remember thinking, it’s got to be a joke, I said something like.. oh come on mate ?!?? It’d be like kissing my dad !! Let’s go get a drink, get back to the others. I was never in any other Miramax film,” she said. However, unfortunately for Lena this was not the only experience that she had to share.

She met Weinstein for the second time at a Los Angeles hotel. She said that although she expected it to be a business meeting, Weinstein actually asked questions about her love life and then asked her to go to his room and look at a script.

“We walked to the lift and the energy shifted, my whole body went into high alert, the lift was going up and I said to Harvey, ‘I’m not interested in anything other than work, please don’t think I got in here with you for any other reason, nothing is going to happen,'” she told him. The star said that Weinstein was furious and made her feel powerless.

The actress concluded that when she left the hotel, Weinstein told her to not tell anyone about what happened. “Not your manager, not your agent.”

Channing Tatum Refuses to Work in Weinstein Company Movie

Famous actor Channing Tatum has decided to refuse a work project following allegations that Harvey Weinstein sexually abused and harassed a series of women. So, Channing will no longer work on a movie about sexual abuse in collaboration with Weinstein’s company.

“The brave women who had the courage to speak their truth about [Mr] Weinstein are true heroes to us,” Channing Tatum said according to BBC. “They are lifting the heavy bricks to build the equitable world we all deserve to live in,” he went on to add. Channing was working with The Weinstein Company at a movie about a boy who had been sexually abused. The actor was both starring in and directing the movie.

“While we will no longer develop it or anything else that is property of TWC, we are reminded of its powerful message of healing in the wake of tragedy,” he went on add. “This is a giant opportunity for real positive change that we proudly commit ourselves to. The truth is out – let’s finish what our incredible colleagues started and eliminate abuse from our creative culture once and for all.”

Weinstein denied all the sexual abuse allegations made against him. He did admit that his behavior may have “caused a lot of pain” in the past and apologized. A representative for the famous Hollywood producer said that all the sexual relationships that Weinstein had were consensual.

Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up about Degrading Experience at the Beginning of her Career

There is no doubt in the fact that the whole Harvey Weinstein scandal has made many famous women want to talk about and share their experience. So, several famous women have revealed their own experience with abuse. One of the latest ladies to speak up is Jennifer Lawrence.

The famous actress revealed that she was actually humiliated during the first days of her acting career. Jennifer talked about her experience during her appearance at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event. Jennifer said during her speech that a Hollywood producer asked her to lose a lot of weight for one of her acting roles. The actress also said that another woman was actually fired by producers because she failed to lose the weight fast enough.

“When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks,” Jennifer said. “During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates,” the famous actress went on to add.

Jennifer was told that she should use the experience as an inspiration. “After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet,” the star explained. Jennifer said that she did not easily accept the demands. She actually complained to another producer that the weight loss demand was not right.

“He said he didn’t know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was ‘perfectly f***able,” she explained. Finally, Jennifer said that she felt there was nothing she could do. So the star decided to go with the demands to help her career, feeling trapped. “I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt I had to for my career,” the actress said.

Jennifer previously also talked about the allegations against Weinstein. The star claimed that although she worked with him, she was not subjected to any form of harassment. She also said that she never heard anyone complain about such allegations.

Kate Winslet Says She Didn’t Want to Thank Harvey Weinstein during Oscars Speech

Famous actress Kate Winslet also had a story to share about Harvey Weinstein. Luckily, in this case it did not talk about allegations of sexual harassment. In fact, Kate decided to reveal now the reason why she decided not to thank Weinstein when she won an Oscar in 2009.

Actually, when she held her winning speech at the Oscars back in 2009 many people wondered why Kate excluded Weinstein from the list of people she thanked. Some believed that she forgot, but that was not the case. During an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Kate said that she actually made the decision to not thank Harvey.

“I remember being told, ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No I won’t. No I won’t,'” the actress said. “And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?” she went on to add. Kate and Weinstein collaborated back in 1994 when Kate actually made her debut. However, Kate revealed that it was not the best experience possible for her.

In fact, the star said that Weinstein always reminded her about the fact that he was the one who cast her in her first movie, Heavenly Creatures. “For my whole career, Harvey Weinstein, whenever I’ve bumped into him, he’d grab my arm and say, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie.’ Like I owe him everything,” the actress said during her interview.

“But that’s how he operated. He was bullying and nasty. Going on a business level, he was always very, very hard to deal with — he was rude. He used to call my female agent a [vulgar name for a woman] every time he spoke to her on the telephone,” Kate also explained.

Kate previously praised all the women who decided to speak up about Weinstein’s misconduct. Kate also expressed her support for these women and said that Weinstein’s behavior was “disgraceful and appalling and very, very wrong.”

Blake Lively Says she was Sexually Harassed by Male Make-Up Artist

The revelations surrounding the acts of Harvey Weinstein have made other famous women want to reveal their stories, as well. Blake Lively previously revealed that she was never in such a situation when it comes to Weinstein and that she never heard stories accusing him, but she experienced sexual harassment in relation to another man.

While talking to the Los Angeles Times, Blake revealed that a makeup artist sexually harassed her and nothing was done, although she complained about the harassment. “He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” the actress said during her interview. “I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me. I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do,” she went on to add.

So, Blake claimed that although she complained about this man’s behavior to the producers, they took no action to stop him. “After three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.’ I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day.’ And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can’t have this happen again,’ ” the actress said.

Blake said she had nothing else to do than to call a lawyer because she couldn’t handle the situation anymore. That was the moment when the man was removed from the project and Blake no longer had to deal with him. However, the man did receive a recommendation letter. “Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,” she said.

Although she shared this experience, Blake refused to reveal any details. She claimed that this is something that happens so commonly in all industries that women don’t even think it is assault. “This cannot happen, this should not happen, and it happens in every single industry,” she concluded.

Vin Diesel Talks about Fast & Furious Feud

It seems that famous actor Vin Diesel decided to talk about the feud that has been going on in relation to Fast & Furious. Apparently, the famous actor believes that there is no one to blame in this scandal, so we can surely say that Vin Diesel is not taking any sides.

Vin Diesel also shared a pic of himself and The Rock on Instagram as they were filming together a scene of the popular movies. The whole scandal emerged when Tyrese Gibson started criticizing Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, for delaying the filming for the Fast & Furious 9. Gibson shared a message on social media in which it asked The Rock to stop delaying the project. The movie was announced to be released in 2020.

Allegedly, it is all linked to the fact that a spin-off will be released in 2019, focusing on the fight between the Fast & Furious characters played by Johnson and Jason Statham. It seems that this frustrated Tyrese Gibson, who also stars in Fast & Furious. He accused Johnson of making the franchise about him and claimed that the famous actor was a clown.

Of course, The Rock was not happy at all with this comment. “My goal from day 1 was to come in and create an exciting/fun character for the fans, elevate the franchise and built it out. #HobbsShaw2019,” he tweeted in response to Gibson’s claims. And now it seems that Vin Diesel, who has starred in the Fast & Furious franchise from the beginning, also made some comments about what happened.

“I know there has been a lot of speculation as to why the Fast 9 release date was pushed… but it would be unfair to say it is anyone’s fault,” Vin Diesel shared on social media. “As we plot the course to expand the Fast & Furious universe, one must be mindful to take stock of the roads we took to get here. The pillars of authenticity, family and most importantly, our loyal fan’s perspective has been instrumental in procuring success,” he added.

The famous actor went on to say that the “franchise is in need of maintenance. My good friend and the godfather of Universal, Ron Meyer has granted me the time to do just that. We have some very exciting news to share soon… stay tuned.” It is yet to see how this scandal will finally end.

Ben Affleck Dealing with Alcohol Addiction?

Ben Affleck is once again in the middle of the media attention. According to a new report, the popular actor is dealing with alcohol addiction and is seeking rehab treatment for his issues. Allegedly, Ben has underwent a rehab stay a few months ago, but he now needs medical help once again.

The report was first shared by In Touch, which claimed that Ben’s addition issues have not been solved. The report cited a source reportedly close to the actor, which claimed that his “drinking has gotten worse.” The insider explained that the famous actor “is spiraling out of control” and this is why the people close to him “are urging him to go into inpatient rehab.”

The source explained that Ben is perfectly aware of this situation, but he wants to seek the treatment he needs at his own pace. “He knows he needs to check back into rehab,” the source claimed. “The problem is that he wants to go on his terms. He wants to do it on his time, but like most addicts, that time keeps getting put off. This relapse has gone on too long already,” the same insider explained.

The source revealed that when Ben makes the decision to undergo treatment, he is very committed to it and does exactly what he is required to do. “When he does [get help], he takes the treatment very seriously and listens to all of the staff’s advice,” the source said. “This is a disease and he wants nothing more than to be present for his family and his girlfriend.”

Ben has constantly been in the media attention following his separation from his former wife, actress Jennifer Garner. He is currently dating Lindsay Shookus. The source said that Lindsay may not be the best influence for the famous actor at the moment, mostly because Ben is encouraged to drink during their outings. The insider claimed that Lindsay does not realize that she is enabling his addition.

Ben underwent rehab about seven months ago to deal with his issues. A US Weekly report denied the claims made by In Touch, saying that a source close to the actor revealed that Ben is taking a lot of care of himself and is living a healthy life now.

Kim Cattrall Talks about Reasons in Not Wanting to Star in New Sex and the City Movie

Without a doubt, famous actress Kim Cattrall managed to create a lot of headlines lately. It is all related to her decision to not star in the planned third Sex and the City movie. And because of her decision to turn down this project, Kim was also criticized by her co-stars. Now, the actress decided to open up about this whole situation during a new interview.

The star, who played the role of Samantha Jones in the popular movies, talked about the subject during an interview with Piers Morgan. Kim told Morgan that her relationship with her co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, was toxic. She also claimed that her decision to not star in this movie has nothing to do with outrageous demands, as previously claimed.

“I’ve moved on, this is what my sixties are about, they’re about me making decisions for me not my career, for me. And that feels frickin fantastic,” the actress said during her interview. Kim also explained that the relationship with her co-stars “feels like a toxic relationship.” “They all have children and I am ten years older and since specifically the series ended I have been spending most of my time outside of New York so I don’t see them,” she explained. “The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over,” the actress concluded.

Of course, Kim also talked about the previous comments that Sarah Jessica Parker made about her decision. “I really think she could have been nicer,” Kim said. “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous,” Kim concluded.

The actress also said that she does not think there is a reason for the movie to not be filmed because she will not star in it. The producers can bring another character and can easily replace her. For now, it remains unclear what will happen in the future when it comes to this movie.

Roman Polanski Accused of Child Rape

Roman Polanski is once again in the media attention for some serious allegations. The famous filmmaker has been accused of child rape. This time the accusations came from Renate Langer, a German-born former actress, who said she was a victim of the filmmaker.

After Langer made these allegations, the Swiss police started an investigation against Polanski. Polanski is 84 years old now. So, Langer claimed that it all happened in 1972, when she was 15 years old. She said that Polanski sexually abused her in his home in Gstaad. That is where the filmmaker was living back then. According to The New York Times, the plaintiff also told the police that she never spoke about what happened back then because she felt ashamed and embarrassed.

However, she now decided to talk about what happened because she hoped that the police would investigate her claims. “I felt ashamed and embarrassed and lost and solo,” the star said. No other details were revealed at this point about the accusations, but we can surely say that this is not the first time when such claims have been made about Polanski.

In fact, the first allegations of the filmmaker having unlawful sex with a minor were linked to Samantha Geimer, who was allegedly abused by Polanski in 1977. This was a highly debated case because Polanski admitted to having sex with her. In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Polanski admitted that he pleaded guilty to the allegations. “I went to jail. I came back to the United States to do it, people forget about that, or don’t even know. I then was locked up here [in Zurich] after this festival. So in the sum, I did about four or five times than what was promised to me,” he said.

Two other women also accused Polanski of sexual abuse. One of them is Robin, who claimed that she was sexually abused in 1973, when she was 16. Charlotte Lewis claimed Polanski abused her also when she was 16 years old. It is yet to see what will happen in this newly filed case.

According to this insider, Kit and Rose moved in together at the beginning of the year and since then the actor “felt it was the right time to take the next step.” When it comes to living together, Kit said that he was happy because he moved in with his best friend. “I said to her, cause she’s moved into my house, ‘Look darling, it’s important that this is our space. That it feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out,'” Kit said during a previous interview.

The famous actor and his girlfriend purchased this year a medieval home in Eastern England. And it surely seems that Kit is very much in love with his girlfriend. During an interview with Vogue Italia, the star claimed that he fell in love with Rose while filming the second season of Game of Thrones. “The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northers Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” the actor explained. “If you’re attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love,” he concluded.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have started dating in 2012. The two have always been very private about their personal life. The engagement rumors have not been confirmed for the moment.
