Rose McGowan claims the Hollyweird #MeToo movement is BS, only done to make themselves feel better

Left eat left.

From Daily Mail: The actress who kick-started the exposure of Hollywood moguls who allegedly exploited positions of power to abuse women has branded #MeToo campaigners against sex attackers ‘losers’. 

Rose McGowan accused producer Harvey Weinstein of rape this time last year, sparking an avalanche of allegations in the entertainment industry and beyond.

As stars such as Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman were alleged to have assaulted or harassed performers, activists began using the hashtag to share their ordeals online.

But McGowan has slammed the movement as ‘bull****’ in today’s Sunday Times Magazine, which comes the day after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a Supreme Court justice in the face of historic sexual assault allegations he denies.

After year of stars such as Salma Hayek and Gwyneth Paltrow claiming to be victims of harassment, McGowan has said she understands why Donald Trump supporters hate Hollywood, whose apparent liberalism she says is fake.

On the subject of #MeToo, she said: ‘I just think they’re douchebags. They’re not champions. I just think they’re losers. I don’t like them.  How do I explain the fact that I got a GQ Man of the Year award and no women’s magazines and no women’s organisations have supported me?

‘It’s all bullshit. It’s a lie. It’s a Band-Aid lie to make them feel better. I know these people, I know they’re lily-livered, and as long as it looks good on the surface, to them, that’s enough.’

More from the story:

McGowan has also hit out at Meryl Streep, saying that it is ‘literally impossible’ the actress knew nothing of Weinstein’s sexual proclivities until last autumn. Streep has denied knowing about the producer’s alleged ehavior.

Though she says ‘women have a tight to be angry’, McGowan says #MeToo activists have ‘sold themselves a fiction’ rather than face up to the true nature of Hollywood. 

The article continues:

In Brave, McGowan argues that feminism hasn’t reached Hollywood, where 96 per cent of directors are male. She says the industry’s male gaze has little interest in women beyond them being ‘f***able’.

She told the magazine that even watching the movies in question implicates the viewer in the mistreatment.

This is far from the first time McGowan has spoken out on the matter, with the actress being very vocal in her refusal to align herself with either the #MeToo or Time’s Up movements.

Back in January, she hit out at the A-listers who wore black to the Golden Globes to protest the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal by calling the idea nothing but ‘Hollywood fakery.

She tweeted: ‘And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so. I have no time for Hollywood fakery.

She later branded Time’s Up leadership of being ‘fakes’ after they partnered with CAA.

McGowan has claimed that agents at CAA are ‘guilty of human trafficking’ for sending actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, to meet Harvey Weinstein in his hotel room. ‘Guess where they meet?’ she tweeted. ‘Who do you think is behind this “great” pr?

‘Why, it’s the company of pimps that sent so many into a the Monster’s Lair themselves. CAA. #TIMESUP fakes.’

McGowan also took issue with the fact that none of the women who first came forward were even asked to attend the Golden Globes ceremony.

Asia Argento stated that she had not been invited, while fellow sexual abuse and harassment accusers Corey Feldman and Rosanna Arquette said they too were ignored by the group.

‘Y was I ignored 2Nite? Do U C the hypocrisy here? Hollywood taking a stand in unity, when I wasn’t invited?’ Feldman asked Argento on Twitter, who replied ‘Don’t worry, I wasn’t invited either.’

She later added: ‘Not only I wasn’t invited to the #GoldenGlobes: nobody asked my opinion about #TIMESUP or to sign the letter. I support @TIMESUPNOW even though I was excluded from it. Guess I am not POWERFUL or HOLLYWOOD enough. Proud to work behind the scenes.’

Arquette, who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, also tweeted ‘We weren’t invited. Annabella [Sciorra], Daryl [Hannah], Mira [Sorvino] … none of us were.’

The libtard butt hurt is still strong: Hollyweird “power players” whine about Trump

crybaby
These people take themselves way too seriously, as if they are relevant or something.
From Hollywood Reporter: It’s no secret that Hollywood’s not a fan of Donald Trump.
From outspoken condemnations such as Meryl Streep’s infamous Golden Globes speech — in which she criticized Trump’s remarks about a disabled reporter during the 2016 campaign — to director Judd Apatow’s consistent lambasting tweets, criticisms of the president are widespread among the leaders of the entertainment industry.
When asked how his presidency has affected their work and life, those who made the cut for the THR 100 — The Hollywood Reporter’s second annual ranking of the most powerful people in entertainment — had a variety of responses.
Some stayed mum, including Disney CEO Bob Iger (No. 1 on the THR 100), though he notably resigned from Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum June 1 in the wake of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord signed by nearly every other country. Fox TV Group chairman and co-CEO Dana Walden (No. 16) also skirted the subject of Trump. “I’m not talking about him right now,” she said. “Too depressing.”
Others were much more forthcoming, such as Feud and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy (No. 28). “At least the first hour of every day is dedicated to talking about the writers’ and staffers’ anxieties about the world, vis a vis the Trump administration, and then how are we going to put those anxieties into art,” said the four-time Emmy winner of the atmosphere in his writers room. “That’s new.”
FX Networks CEO John Landgraf (No. 24) didn’t pull any punches as he noted the stress of the last several months. “Trump has made me way more anxious, almost every day. It’s not about politics,” Landgraf said. “It’s about integrity. Judging by his behavior, he is completely amoral, does not believe in the democratic separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution, and recognizes no truth beyond himself — beyond what he needs to be the truth for his own emotional comfort in any given moment. It is scary to me that I have fellow citizens who still think he should be our president.
Some acknowledged the president’s role in revitalizing their work — and deepening its meaning. “Trump is good for the business of escapism,” said Get Out director Jordan Peele (No. 93), while Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins (No. 94) shared a similar, yet slightly more earnest, sentiment: “I think he has put the messages and discussions that I want to have more in focus and pertinent than ever.”
Actor/producer Tyler Perry (No. 67) says Trump “reinvigorated my resolve to bring light and laughter and healing to this world,” while Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay (No. 70) admitted the president has “devastated me in many ways, but each of those ways has made me more determined than before.” Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer (No. 95) has been similarly influenced. “I make a lot of Horatio Alger underdog stories,” said the Imagine Entertainment partner. “So his presence in the White House affects how I do that.”
Nancy Dubuc (No. 44), president and CEO of A+E Networks, took a more measured view: “Our allegiance is to our audience,” she said, adding, “We’re careful to listen and represent diverse points of view and bring forward tough issues through the power of storytelling, when warranted.”
For recently appointed Sony Pictures and Entertainment CEO and chairman Tony Vinciquerra (No. 26), the controversy around Trump has had a positive impact. “Political discourse is at an all-time high everywhere I look,” he said. “Given voter apathy, as evidenced by L.A.’s recent 11 percent mayoral voter turnout, hopefully this political discourse will increase citizen engagement.”
Kevin Beggs (No. 91), chairman of Lionsgate TV Group, echoed Vinciquerra’s respect for open political discourse and public engagement. “What is unfolding in the White House is a powerful reminder that politics matter,” Beggs said. “Complacency is the enemy of democracy and it feels like, after decades of relative disinterest or disgust with the political process, people across the socioeconomic spectrum are paying attention. The surge in news readership and viewership is truly inspiring.”
A few THR 100 honorees had a lighter take on Trump, including NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt (No. 27). “We have one less reality show on our schedule,” the studio exec said, referencing the president’s not-so-distant past as Apprentice host. And Greenblatt wasn’t the only one to bring up the president’s history as a star of the small screen. “I finally watch reality TV full-time when I get home: the news,” said Supergirl and Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti (No. 52).
UTA CEO and managing director Jeremy Zimmer (No. 33) admits that Trump has bolstered his reputation at home. Quipped the top agent, “He has made my kids think that I am highly moral and incredibly smart.”

Meryl Streep Pledges to Stand Up to ‘Brownshirts’ in Tirade Against Trump

pic
Via NY Times: Meryl Streep,in a fiery speech criticizing President Trump on Saturday night, pledged to stand up against “brownshirts and bots” at a time when she and others are increasingly denouncing his administration’s policies and the president himself.
Ms. Streep, in New York City accepting an award from the Human Rights Campaign, referred to the backlash she received after the Golden Globes in January, when she gave a speech denouncing Mr. Trump.
It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead, and it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is to feel you have to,” Ms. Streep said. “You have to. You don’t have an option. You have to.”
It was not immediately clear to whom Ms. Streep was referring in using the loaded term “brownshirts,” which was originally applied to a paramilitary group that assisted the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.
The speech was an even more stinging rebuke of Mr. Trump than her Golden Globes speech. She seemed to relish a new type of role: Trump provocateur. Although this time, Ms. Streep was without a national television audience. She took a moment to respond directly to Mr. Trump, who called her “overrated” in the midst of a barrage of posts on Twitter the morning after the Golden Globes.
“I am the most overrated, overdecorated and, currently, overberated actress, who likes football, of my generation,” Ms. Streep said. The crowd applauded wildly.
Ms. Streep was receiving the National Ally for Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign, an advocacy group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Near the beginning of her acceptance speech, she addressed, initially in a lighthearted way, one of the most controversial parts of her Golden Globes speech.
“I do like football,” Ms. Streep said, to a roar of laughter from the crowd at the Waldorf Astoria. At the Golden Globes, Ms. Streep said, “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
She received a torrent of criticism, particularly from conservatives, for disparaging the two sports, something she acknowledged in her speech and attempted to clarify what she meant. “It isn’t helpful to make it us versus them,” Ms. Streep said.
Referring to the film producer and director Mike Nichols, she continued, “I was making a joke, and Mike Nichols told me, ‘If you have to explain the joke, Meryl, you’re doomed.’”
Later in the speech, she returned to criticizing Mr. Trump. “If his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we will have much to thank this president for,” Ms. Streep said. “Because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is.”
At one point, Ms. Streep referred to Mr. Trump as a “self-dealer,” and said, “The whip of the executive can through a Twitter feed lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic irregularity and easily provoked predictability.”

A Hollyweird movie that everyone is avoiding: Gun control flick 'Miss Sloane' flops at the box office

HAHAHAHAHAH. GOOD. HAHAHAHAHAHA.
miss-sloane-movie
From Fox News: Movie goers weren’t too interested in “Miss Sloane,” a film that explores the gun control debate from the perspective of a lawyer who is lobbying for universal background checks for gun ownership. Still, the film’s leading lady, Jessica Chastain, landed a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination for the poorly received flick.
The film, which premiered in select cities on Thanksgiving, hit more theaters this past weekend, and it fizzled in its wide expansion, earning $1.9 million from 1,648 locations.
According to Deadline, “Miss Sloane” cost $13 million to produce. It currently has a score of 69 percent on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. The movie was projected to earn a paltry $5 million at the box office, according to the Los Angeles Times, but so far it’s fallen short.
In the film, Elizabeth, played by Chastain, leaves her top firm for the opposition when a powerful gun group asks her to devise messaging to turn women against background checks for gun ownership. Chastain is portrayed fighting for the underdogs, using everything at her disposal to try to ensure that the background check bill passes.
The role earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination on Monday morning. Since 2012, Chastain has been nominated for four Golden Globes and won once, in 2013, for “Zero Dark Thirty.”
According to Twitchy, more people bought guns over Black Friday weekend than saw this movie!

A "classic American beauty"…

That doesn’t know the definition of modesty.
Erin Wasson is a model and her website states, “Erin is the multifaceted beauty par excellenceA classic American beauty hailing from the great state of Texas, Wasson is one of modeling’s blue chip faces.  Her low-key and free-spirited sense of style has inspired many…”  Check out what this low-key sense of style gal wore to a Golden Globes after-party on Sunday night.  Below is a picture of her in her “dress”.
 
First of all, girlfriend needs a cheeseburger!  Secondly, what kind of woman walks out in public basically naked?  Granted, she’s got a beautiful face and is obviously cut out to be a model.  But wow, really?  Would you want your daughter, girlfriend, or wife to dress like this in public?  She’s basically wearing a wrap that should be seen on the beach, with a swimsuit on underneath.
I just hope young women and girls don’t see this and believe that this is “classic” American beauty.  Real beautiful women know when to put on some clothes!
