Follow-up to this post.

Anna Paquin corroborates Ellen Page's harassment by Brett Ratner on the set of (the now even more hated) X-Men: The Last Stand. Her Tweet from yesterday backing up Ellen Page's story invited threads of Twitter losers users criticizing her for staying silent on what she witnessed over 10 years ago.

Have we learned nothing, Twitter?

This is what she had to say:



Duh.

George Takei denies sexual assault claims, but a recent Howard Stern interview proves he's guilty



In an interview he did with Howard Stern a few weeks ago, George Takei admits to having grabbed men's penises against their will. He said that "some people are skittish" and need some convincing to have sex. He claims that he never held a job over anyone's head like Harvey Weinstein (like this excuses it lol) and that these incidents never happened at work, always at his home.

Nevertheless, George denied the allegations on Twitter.

Metal Gear Solid to get live-action film written by Jurassic World's Derek Connelly


  • Jurassic World writer Derek Connelly is reportedly writing a script for a live-action Metal Gear Solid movie. The film is based off of Konami's hit video-game series.

  • Avi Arad (ugh) may be producing the film. It was announced in 2012 that Kojima was working with his production company to make a film about MGS.

  • Most of the games in the Metal Gear Solid series follow Solid Snake, a special forces operative who slowly becomes involved in a global conspiracy. The first game in the series, released in 1995 on the PlayStation, sees him neutralizing a terrorist threat from a renegade special forces unit called Foxhound, who have taken hostages and seized control of a nuclear launch facility in Alaska.

Pakistani actor Fawad Khan will try his luck in Hollywood



The Pakistani hunk (and actual Disney Prince) Fawad Khan, who starred in hit dramas (Humsafar, Zindagi Gulzar Hai) in his home country and then took Bollywood by storm (Khoobsurat, Kapoor & Sons, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil), is now making his way to the West.

After tensions between India and Pakistan resulted in many Pakistani artists losing jobs in Bollywood, Fawad took the advice of producer/director Karan Johar and has signed with an agent in Hollywood and begun reading scripts. He is expected to move to LA as soon as he's chosen his first project.

Fiona Apple's When The Pawn... turns 18!



🍎 Fiona Apple's When The Pawn... was released 18 years ago on November 9th 1999 when she was only 22 (your faves could never). It was a remarkable artistic leap in songwriting and sound that saw Fiona coming into her true power. She worked along with producer Jon Brion to refine and expand her musical horizons. She was more confident and uninhibited in her delivery laying her guts out unapologetically. The result was a resonant, sophisticated and fearless work that's just as poignant today. This is an album you can sing/scream with from beginning to end, and feel ultimate relief and healing.

🍎 With Tidal, Fiona thought she would tell her story and people would finally understand her, but her experience with fame was the polar opposite as she was wildly misunderstood and felt unaccepted. Misogynistic journalists mistook her honesty and projected their ugliness onto her: 'bruised fruit', 'insufferable', 'self-indulgent', 'pretentious' and a 'sad brat with no sense of humor' are a few quotes from magazines from that time. Her "Criminal" music video got a vicious reception, and the response to her MTV Awards Acceptance Speech (which spoke nothing but truth!) was even harsher.

The literary world is failing to recognize The Autobiography of Gucci Mane




  • Basically Gucci Mane's autobiography, written with Neil Martinez-Belkin, has redefined the celebrity memoir.

  • The Autobiography won't get the recognition it deserves, despite it being on the New York Times Hardcover bestseller list since its release this past September. Not even the NY Times has reviewed the book in full, although it has written a bunch about Russell Brand’s own memoir, Recovery, which is also currently on the best-sellers list.

  • LitHub writer says now is the time for the literary world to expand their outdated views of what literature should be like.

Richard Dreyfuss accused of sexual harassment by writer

* they're working on a TV show called “Funny, You Don’t Look 200: A Constitutional Vaudeville” (1980),
* “I value and respect women, and I value and respect honesty" he said</i>I emphatically deny ever ‘exposing’ myself to Jessica Teich, whom I have considered a friend for 30 years. I did flirt with her, and I remember trying to kiss Jessica as part of what I thought was a consensual seduction ritual that went on and on for many years.</i>

Why are Woody Allen & Roman Polanski Not Included in Hollywood 'Housecleaning' of Sexual Abusers?



Article wonders why powerful figures like Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and Kevin Spacey are all facing the loss of their careers as a consequence for their sexual misconduct, yet Woody Allen and Roman Polanski continue to collect awards and make films with A-list stars.

What do you think, ONTD - is it because they're considered "genius artists" that they're untouchable? Or just that actors really, really want awards and their films can get them? Or something else?

Jesse Lacey of Brand New Addresses Sexual Misconduct Allegations

He posted a letter on the band's official Facebook Page.

23472736_10214838749911182_8740641354007411084_n
He admits to an addiction and other problems in the past, and outlines the steps he took to address his problem then.

Apologizes to the people he hurt and acknowledges his privilage and influence he had over his fanbase.

"I am sorry for how I have hurt people, mistreated them, lied, and cheated. I am sorry for ignoring the way in which my position, status, and power as a member of a band affected the way people viewed me or their approach to their interactions with me. And I am sorry for how often I have not afforded women the respect, support, or honesty that they deserved, and which is their right. I believe in the equality and autonomy of all, but in my life I have been more of a detriment to these ideals than an advocate."

DC Comics suspends editor Eddie Berganza over harassment

Yesterday Buzzfeed featured a story on DC Comics editor Eddie Berganza that detailed his years of sexual harassment while moving up in the company. DC knew of his actions for years but did nothing. Until now.

DC has suspended Berganza from the company and pulled him from his duties as group editor of books like Dark Nights: Metal, the Superman line, Green Lanterns, and Trinity. They state there will be a "prompt and yet careful review" into what steps to take next and that they are "extremely committed" to a safe and secure working environment.

Throughout the day major figures in the industry (especially at DC) like Gail Simone and Rafael Albuquerque voiced their support to the victims and called on DC to finally step up and do the right thing.
