Robin Williams alleged to have groped Mork & Mindy costar Pam Dawber on set

Williams’ former Mork & Mindy costar Pam Dawber says that he harassed her regularly, a claim backed up by director Howard Storm .

“I had the grossest things done to me by him. I never took offense. I mean, I was flashed, humped, bumped, grabbed. I think he probably did it to a lot of people… If you put it on paper you would be appalled. But somehow he had this guileless little thing that he would do — those sparkly eyes. He’d look at you, really playful, like a puppy, all of a sudden. And then he’d grab your tits and then run away. And somehow he could get away with it."

"I’m standing there watching this and I’m thinking, ‘oh my god’ and I just laughed. I thought she was going to turn and say: ‘How dare you stick a cane in a woman’s ass?’ That sweet old lady. There was nothing lascivious about it, in his mind. It was just Robin being Robin, and he thought it would be funny. He could get away with murder.”

“He’d be doing a paragraph and in the middle of it he would just turn and grab her ass. Or grab a breast. And we’d start again. I’d say, ‘Robin, there’s nothing in the script that says you grab Pam’s ass.’ And he’d say: ‘Oh, OK.”’ He would stand naked opposite Dawber while she was trying to act, in order to make her “blush.”

Robin will be published on May 15,

Candice Patton Shuts Down Arrow Fan for Racism and Fans Celebrate

– The Flash star Candice Patton has often been the target of harassment on Twitter, and today is no different. This time people were flooding her mentions with the 9999th debate over whether or not Iris West is a well developed lead or product of tokenism and virtue signalling (back in 2014 when the show started it was just called sjw pandering... we've come so far), but then things got even more personal.
– Fans of Westallen, Barry and Iris respectively, often fight back against these criticisms. In response to a critic saying "idiots* feel empowered" by Iris, one fan @misbehavinNJgirl posted a picture of her and her boyfriend captioned "Since black women with white men trigger you... hi 👋🏾".
– Another The Flash critic, infamous Olicity stan @OlicityStan, jumped in and tweeted in response to the picture, "I have nothing against white man having jungle fever. Most of them are loser that can't get with attractive white women." Said stan also used the word "savages" in another ugly tweet and bragged about getting Black Twitter "triggered AF!".
– Candice quote tweeted @OlicityStan and said "Since you continue with racist comments in my mentions... you must want attention. Here you go...😌"
– Another fan tweeted in response to Candice and both the "loser" comments, "So what does that make me as a white woman that fell in love with a black woman, a double loser? Since she was my best friend, soulmate, my heart, I'll gladly be a double loser".
– Candice quote tweeted her, "get in losers ! 🚗" and shared photos of other fans tweeting at her in interracial relationships and/or with interracial families. @OlicityStan has since been suspended for their comments. We poppin' bottles.

Cate Blanchett on Woody Allen allegations

“I don’t think I’ve stayed silent at all. At the time that I worked with Woody Allen, I knew nothing of the allegations. At the time, I said it’s a very painful and complicated situation for the family, which I hope they have the ability to resolve. If these allegations need to be reexamined which, in my understanding, they’ve been through court, then I’m a big believer in the justice system and setting legal precedents. If the case needs to be reopened, I am absolutely, wholeheartedly in support of that.”

“I feel that these things need to go into court, so if these abuses have happened, the person is prosecuted and so someone who is not in the shiny industry that I am can use that legal precedent to protect themselves. Always, in my industry or any other industry, they’re preyed upon because they’re vulnerable.”


Ryan Murphy Talks New Show With Ricky Martin, and Why He Can't Care Too Much What Donatella Thinks

  • Says Darren Criss's performance as Andrew Cunanan was the "most difficult, multi-faceted role of the year" and wouldn't have done the show without him.

  • Didn't want to glorify Cunanan's actions but was interested in showing that he wasn't "born a monster" and what lead him to become the way he was.

  • Wants to give Ricky Martin his own show and is working with him on that.

  • In regards to Donatella Versace's condemnation of the show, says he doesn't really care what she thinks as her treatment of Antonio D'Amico was "shitty". At the same time, he admires her in how she kept on pushing and kept the business going after everything that happened to her.


Steven Spielberg: Netflix Movies and Streaming Services ‘Deserve an Emmy, but Not an Oscar’

In an interview with ITV News Spielberg said:

“I don’t believe that films that are just given token qualifications, in a couple of theaters for less than a week, should qualify for the Academy Award nominations.”

He said that streaming service content could “deserve an Emmy, but not an Oscar.”

According to Indiewire Netflix has used an awards-qualifying theatrical run for movies such as “Mudbound” (which earned Oscar nominations this year for Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay) and “Okja.”

Vincent Gallo is still pissed Roger Ebert hated The Brown Bunny

The upcoming Cannes Film Festival will mark 15 years since director Vincent Gallo's Brown Bunny premiered. And Gallo is still angry over the way critic Roger Ebert treated the film, calling it one of the worst movies ever screened in the history of the festival.

Gallo writes in an open letter that he believes Ebert's behavior during the screening affected everyone's reaction to the film and that is was outrageous that a critic was allowed to disrupt a film at such a high profile festival. Gallo goes on to say that Sean Penn told him the film would have won the Palme d'Or if the credits read "Directed by Chloe Sevigny."

Ebert's opinion changed after seeing a reedited version after the festival, but Gallo claims he didn't cut much (8 mins compared to a reported 24), so Ebert's original thoughts were "fake news" and that Ebert didn't want to be known as the guy who hated his film.

Also in the letter:
-- Gallo states he does not believe in equality, only fairness.
-- The truly intolerent people are NY/Cali liberals.
-- Wishes Asia Argento and Rose McGowan weren't being glorified for calling Harvey a pig. Goes on to say Rose should have pressed charges on Harvey years ago to prevent future incidents with other women.
-- Feminists only fight to control outcomes, not fairness (there's that word again).
-- Is very proud Trump is President.
