The young lady who lives with me, my 22-year-old “Youthful Ward,” recently landed a role in an upcoming Warner Bros. The film’s first AD handled the casting, wardrobe fitting, and shoot scheduling. The fact is, most of the time, actresses don’t have to sleep with a guy to get cast. This is a truly terrible place filled with ambition, vanity, greed, jealousy, backbiting, and bullying.It’s a horrible town, just not horrible in the way some of you think. Horny (often unattractive) men in power on one side, beautiful actresses with a different type of power on the other.Obviously, the treatment of women all over the world is something that has always had to be identified.Certainly in the country of Haiti where I work, in Africa, in the developing world, it's been a hard time for women. Are we asking for it by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?Weinstein hated Christian rightists, but he had no problem using them to try to rob another film of an award.He always did everything he could to create negative publicity for competing films.In doing so, she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) forbidding her from talking about the case.
She told a reporter: 'I think we have to look at ourselves.
Two weeks ago, it was the Las Vegas shooting, a man-made catastrophe about which many open questions remain. I am not an expert on any of those things, so I listen and try to learn.
But then came the Las Vegas experts—the ones who claim to know everything about the town, the hotels, the culture, the lifestyle. There are only glorified prostitutes,” wrote “Styx Einzig” on If I had all the free time in the world, I’d write a travel guide called , purely in the hope that one day someone would ask me, “Where’s the best nightlife in Naples?
” “How could Stephen Paddock have hauled ten bags up to the 32nd floor? This is what happens when people try to be experts on matters about which they know nothing. And now the scare-quote experts have come out to opine on the Harvey Weinstein debacle. I’ve worked with the studios and the networks, A-list casting directors like Deb Aquila, entertainment law firms like Greenberg Glusker, and I’ve hooked up billionaire dilettantes like Mark Cuban and Terry Semel with directors looking to fund their next project.
People who have never worked in Hollywood, people who have never set foot on a film set or in a movie studio (and no, riding the Incredible Hulk roller coaster at Universal Orlando doesn’t count) now seem to know everything there is to know about this town. I know this town pretty well, so maybe my word carries a little more weight than “Styx Einzig.” No, every actress is not a whore.
