"We all knew." The Director of the Royal Court Theater Speaks Out, Takes Responsibility.

The reason I’m so angry is I’m so shocked that we’d got to this point and we’d all accepted it. We all knew about it! We. All. Knew. (...) I knew that pretty much every single woman I know had suffered sexual harassment in her life. I knew that, and I’d just accepted that. I’m hardwired to accept it. I’m a feminist, and when I talk about it, it shocks me. But I had literally accepted it, like I accept that we have a class system. I’d accepted it like I accept that there are homeless people. And that’s just bizarre – but it’s what we’ve done. And then suddenly someone speaks out, and you start to think, why are we as a society accepting of this situation?”




  • Talks about the pervasiveness and acceptance of sexual harassment in the industry

  • The Royal Court invited members of the industry to submit their experiences of the sexual abuse of power

  • They got 150 testimonies, which were then read out to an audience of actors, directors, and drama students

  • Featherstone and her team have since drawn up a code of behavior

  • Says more women (and men) will come forward

  • Says predators know exactly what they're doing

I'm glad some positive things are happening. ONTD, have you ever been harassed at work?

Taika Waititi featured in GQ Magazine


Taika Waititi, a beautiful person with style, was featured in GQ as he continues to promote Thor: Ragnarok. Highlights include:

On his style:

"I love dressing up, and I think part of it is just obviously wanting some attention, but it also makes me feel very good. It makes me feel happy wearing something that's, like, just got a bit more personality, I think."

"He would sometimes have two or three outfit changes on set" — Chris Hemsworth

Alec Baldwin keeps tweeting after vowing to take a twitter break, might also have been hacked?







Self-confessed sexist and friend to serial sexual predator, Alec Baldwin vowed to take a twitter break yesterday, though that didn't stop him from attacking actress/director Asia Argento and her boyfriend Anthony Bourdain who have both been critical of some of his victim blaming contacts.

He is now tweeting pro-Rose McGowan and anti-James Toback, anti-Alec Baldwin tweets which leads me to believe he was hacked.

Red Ranger Dacre Montgomery's Wild, Shirtless, G-String'd Audition Tape for ‘Stranger Things 2’



Budget Zefron, Dacre Montgomery, was so committed to playing the role of Billy on the second season of Netflix's Stranger Things, that he sent in a wild audition tape.

"I just kind of wanted to make a bit of a splash with the Duffers, because I assumed they would be getting so many tapes," the Red Ranger spills to @GQ.

"So I got up, kinda went crazy, shaved all my hair off around my face except for my mustache," he continues. "And then rang two friends who are still studying at the acting university that I went to here in Perth. Then during the day I made everything else happen—the dancing and the rest, going out in the G-string and just playing around with it, and putting it together on iMovie and doing all that sort of stuff. And then my two friends came around in the evening, and they had no idea."

Peep the tape for yourself @ GQ.com [can't embed :(].



Speaking of Dacre Zefron, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard appeared on Jimmy Fallon and let it slip that the only reason he plays basketball is because of the IRL Disney Prince's portrayal of Troy Bolton in HSM.

Promo for Outlander (Starz) 3x09 - "The Doldrums"


Claire and Jamie leave Scotland, sailing to the West Indies on an urgent quest. When the superstitious crew looks for someone to blame after a string of bad luck, rescue comes from an unlikely source.

Outlander airs on Starz at 8pm, Sundays (and is made available OnDemand at midnight on the day of airing)

Source

I've been spoiler free and not read the books so I did NOT realise they was in this episode. Hf Jenny reading Claire the riot act. Also glad for Jenny and her water pitcher. I'm so over the hate sex that always flirts with the line of consent...and not in a good way. I did like this one better than ep7...but it still felt really plot device-y to move the story forwards instead of a natural progression!
