Hollywood now Bust.

Postby Prey » Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:25 am

As Hollywood continues to implode in upon itself with multiple sexual assault allegations being made against producers and actors that list just keeps on growing...

Following the stories about Weinstein, director James Toback, actor Andy Dick and others, two-time Oscar winner Kevin Spacey has been accused of sexually assaulting actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14 years old, leading within days to the early end of Spacey’s Netflix series House of Cards. And now, another well-known actor has been accused of a bad act in the past. This time it's Entourage actor Jeremy Piven.


He has of course denied the allegations...

“I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen… It takes a great deal of courage for victims to come forward with their histories, and my hope is that the allegations about me that didn't happen, do not detract from stories that should be heard.”

Innocent until proven guilty obviously has little sway in them there Hollywood hills. In the meantime no doubt many more stars will continue to fall foul of whatever is still to come whether it be solid truths or fabricated witch hunting.

Jesus, that is depressing and disappointing.

No doubt Arnie will be mentioned at some point, he had a reputation for being grabby apparently. I'd heard stories about Kevin Spacey years ago so that's not really a surprise.

Expect Oliver Stone, Bryan Singer and a few others will be mentioned soon as well.

Yeah, there's been some really dodgy rumours about Singer's pool parties. Although didn't he already have a court case a few years back about that? Can't remember if he settled out of court.

I think it's a case of: Anywhere there's a hierarchy with individuals with power to influence, a percentage will be corrupt and/or abusive. Institutions and organisations (such as Hollywood) seem to draw them in.

Next on the list is one time X-Men director and close friend of Singer no less Brett Ratner...

Six women have accused Hollywood filmmaker Brett Ratner of sexual harassment or misconduct.

I think everyone is a sleazebag deep down, it's just human nature that we're all twisted amoral monsters. I think it's just the power trip that comes with being a big shot in Hollywood/Politics etc. that brings that more to the surface of people. I bet it's even worse in huge businesses, but they largely go unnoticed because the directors have little public acclaim.

Disappointing that a number of people whose work I respect have been accused of such things.

The stuff coming out about Spacey is repugnant, the Edwin was rampant by the sounds of it. Netflix have completely dropped him as well.

Honestly didn't know much about him beyond his appearances on Parks & Rec, never seen his stand-up. Unlikely to now.

Corey Feldman has finally opened up concerning the Hollywood paedophile ring going back decades and it included none other than Charlie Sheen...

Charlie Sheen has denied claims he raped Corey Haim when the late child star was aged 13.

The Two and a Half Men actor was alleged to have sexually assaulted Haim while they were filming 1986 teen comedy Lucas.

"Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations,"
