The number of actresses, actors and others coming forward is pretty huge. Most have a story about Harvey Weinstein, who is – to half-quote Emma Thompson – the current gross tip of this iceberg. Blake Lively has had a friendly relationship with Harvey Weinstein for a while (she wore a Marchesa dress when she got married to Ryan Reynolds in 2012). Blake has something to say about Harvey Weinstein and sexual harassment in Hollywood, but they’re two separate conversations.
So far this week, Ben Affleck’s plan of denouncing Harvey Weinstein’s grossness backfired on him after Rose McGowan called him a liar. Then Hilarie Burton reminded everyone of him acting like a creep on TRL years ago. And then a weirdly handsy French Canadian interview resurfaced. And then then Annamarie Tendler accused him of grabbing her ass at a Golden Globes party. But forget about Ben for a second. How does his ex-wife Jennifer Garner feel about all this bad news? Not great, that’s how.
No, no one got a voicemail message from Alec Baldwin screaming obscenities about barnyard animals and gratitude. But it did involve creative insults, yelling, and a NYC street, which I believe are the top three things that certify this as a classic Alec Baldwin temper tantrum.
Because this is the week that the internet is bringing up problematic shit from the past, the internet has brought up a problematic video of Jason Momoa cracking a joke about rape.
Not long after Rose McGowan accused Ben Affleck of knowing what Harvey Weinstein had been up to in the past, former MTV VJ Hilarie Burton reminded everyone about the time Ben groped her left boob on TRL. According to makeup artist Annemarie Tendler, that wasn’t the only time Ben’s hands have been somewhere they weren’t welcome.
Rose McGowan has been spitting hot truth on Twitter for a while now, but the implosion of Harvey Weinstein’s career has caused people to really pay attention. As it turns out, Twitter hasn’t been so crazy about what Rose has been serving, and they suspended her account.
