Pamela Anderson Piers Morgan Harvey Weinstein

Pamela Anderson has said that she doesn’t want men to “feel like they can't make the first move”, speaking out again about the consequences of the Hollywood sexual misconduct scandal.

The 50 year old former Playboy model and star of ‘Baywatch’ appeared on Piers Morgan’s chat show 'Life Stories', to speak about her career in an interview that’s being broadcast this Saturday (March 3rd). The topic of conversation turned to the MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and Anderson sounded a note of caution.

“Obviously, I am supportive of women and feel for women that have been made sexual advances on that they don't want, but I also feel for the men too,” she said.

Harvey Weinstein Issues 'Apology' For Citing Jennifer Lawrence And Meryl Streep In Legal Defence


Harvey Weinstein Meryl Streep Jennifer Lawrence

In the face of criticism from Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence for using their names in an attempt to dismiss a lawsuit filed against him this week, Harvey Weinstein had issued an apology.

Six women are suing the disgraced movie mogul and what they call the ‘Weinstein Sexual Enterprise’, which they say includes his brother Bob and their studio The Weinstein Company. The plaintiffs are arguing that, due to the scale of sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein and the attempts to cover it up, the producer’s “sexual enterprise” should be considered an organised crime group.

Weinstein’s lawyers had filed a motion to have the suit dismissed on Tuesday, saying that it was “fatally overboard”, and would apply to “all women who ever met with Weinstein, regardless of whether they claimed to have suffered any identifiable harm”.

Meryl Streep Attacks Harvey Weinstein For Citing Her Name In Legal Defence


Meryl Streep Harvey Weinstein

Meryl Streep has fired back at Harvey Weinstein after the disgraced movie producer’s legal team used her name and one of her statements in an attempt to dismiss a sexual misconduct lawsuit against him.

On Tuesday this week (February 20th), Weinstein’s lawyers had filed a motion to dismiss a racketeering lawsuit brought by six women who claimed the mogul sexually assaulted or harassed them. They argued that what they called the ‘Weinstein Sexual Enterprise’ was essentially a criminal organisation, given the “hundreds” of women who have come forward with allegations of misconduct in the last four months.

In doing so, his team’s motion to dismiss mentioned that in a recent statement, Streep said that Weinstein “had always been respectful to her in their working relationship.”

Reese Witherspoon Oprah Winfrey Salma Hayek Harvey Weinstein

Oprah Winfrey has said that she believes Reese Witherspoon was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder in the days after the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal broke last year.

The legendary presenter said in her Super Soul Sunday Conversation special podcast with Salma Hayek that she believed that Witherspoon was acting in a very strange way in the days following the scandal breaking back in October, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“Everyone, including Reese – I’ve said this to her – was acting like, I was seeing some of the girls at my school behave, who were suffering from PTSD. Everybody was acting like they were afraid and they were having the conversation,” Winfrey said in the conversation.

Lawrence Bender Regrets Uma Thurman's Stunt Accident, But Denies Cover-Up


Uma Thurman Lawrence Bender Quentin Tarantino Harvey Weinstein

A producer on the movie Kill Bill has responded to Uma Thurman’s claim that the production team covered up a controversial car crash that took place on set during the filming of a stunt that injured its star Uma Thurman.

On Tuesday (February 7th), Thurman had claimed in an eye-opening interview with the New York Times that Tarantino had made her drive a car at speed on a winding road for a scene in 2003’s Kill Bill, although she felt uncomfortable and unsafe doing the stunt. She crashed the vehicle, sustaining a number of bodily injuries and concussion as a result.

She accused Lawrence Bender, a long-time collaborator of Tarantino’s, plus disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and E. Bennett Walsh of covering up the incident by way of refusing to release the footage of it to her unless she signed a document relinquishing them of responsibility.

Rose McGowan Harvey Weinstein

Rose McGowan has strongly rebutted Harvey Weinstein’s denial that he raped her, describing his attempts to discredit her claims as “pathetic” and saying that “the gaslighting will no longer be tolerated”.

On Tuesday (January 30th), the same day that McGowan launched her book tour behind her memoir ‘Brave’ – which details the alleged sexual assault that took place at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival – a lawyer representing Weinstein released e-mails from actor Ben Affleck and from McGowan’s former manager Jill Messick, who both wrote accounts of McGowan’s interactions with them at the festival that apparently clash with her allegations.

Their e-mails to Weinstein and his lawyer do not mention hearing about a non-consensual sexual act, but McGowan says that she told both of them about the assault.

Oprah Winfrey Seal Harvey Weinstein

The growing hype behind a potential Oprah Winfrey presidential campaign doesn’t seem to have everybody enamoured with the idea, with singer Seal dubbing the star as “sanctimonious” and accusing her of being aware of Harvey Weinstein’s misdeeds well before they were made public.

The 54 year old singer launched a stinging attack on the legendary American chat show host, just a few hours after she delivered a rousing speech at the 2018 Golden Globes at the weekend, at which virtually all the female stars wore black in solidarity with the #metoo movement.

Winfrey had told the crowd that “a new day is on the horizon” where nobody will be a victim of sexual violence. That speech sparked a resurgence of interest in long-standing speculation that she might run for president in 2020, with big-name stars throwing their support behind her.

Harvey Weinstein Slapped By Man In Arizona Restaurant

The disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein was slapped in the face by a fellow diner at a restaurant at an exclusive resort near Scottsdale, Arizona – and the incident was caught on a camera phone.

Weinstein, 65, was at the Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Arizona on Tuesday night (January 9th) when an unidentified - and clearly somewhat drunk - man approached him and his “sober coach” at around 9pm.

Apparently, the other patron asked Weinstein for a picture, to which the former movie mogul declined. At this point, when they got up to leave, the man told his friend to start filming, which was when the incident occurred.

Matt Damon Harvey Weinstein Louis C.K.

Matt Damon has stirred up controversy with a rather haphazard interview about the state of Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, appearing to argue that men who have groped or harassed women should not be judged as harshly as they haven't molested children or raped women.

He condemned the actions of the disgraced movie mogul, saying that he didn’t know about the details of his behaviour at the time, but admitted that they didn’t surprise him.

On Wednesday (December 13th), the 51 year old star penned a lengthy essay for the New York Times detailing her ordeals with Weinstein on the 2002 Miramax movie Frida. In it, she gave a detailed account of her history with Weinstein, including allegedly inappropriate on-set demands she refused to co-operate with during shooting of the movie.

They included her saying “No” to “opening the door to him at all hours of the night, hotel after hotel, location after location, where he would show up unexpectedly, including one location where I was doing a movie he wasn’t even involved with. No to me taking a shower with him. No to letting him watch me take a shower. No to letting him give me a massage. No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage. No to letting him give me oral sex. No to my getting naked with another woman.”
