The year 2003 was probably a pretty great year for Quentin Tarantino. And while it might have been good for Quentin, the feeling obviously wasn’t mutual because now 2003 is reaching through the space time continuum to pimp slap a bitch.
As Allison noted yesterday, a 2003 Howard Stern interview Quentin did while promoting Kill Bill has surfaced like a seriously fucked up penny. In that interview, Quentin vigorously and gleefully defended Roman Polanski by suggesting that his 13 year old victim was a party girl who was asking for it. Sorry Quentin, looks like 2018 hates you even harder.
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Gary Oldman has probably done some highly questionable shit in the past. If his terrible defense of Mel Gibson from a while back is any indication, he’s probably got more skeletons in his closet than a hoarding chiropractor. Gary has been winning awards everywhere for Darkest Hour, and since we’re in the era of #MeToo, people have brought up his dark past, like when his third wife (now third ex-wife) accused him of domestic abuse. So Gary’s third ex-wife, Donya Fiorentino, has come out to tell The Daily Mail about how the four years she was married to him were the worst 4 years of her life.
And the award for Most Overwrought Performance of Contrition goes to… Kate Winslet!
Last night Kate accepted a London Critics’ Circle award, and she finally spoke on the question that keeps hounding so many women (and sadly fewer men) in Hollywood these days: How do you feel about having worked with [insert creep’s name here]? Entertainment Weekly reports that Kate was moved by the Women’s Marches of late to speak out against the pervy and powerful. And she should know, she’s worked with some of the worst.
Two new accusations of sexual assault against Nelly have surfaced in conjunction with an ongoing civil lawsuit against him. University of Washington student Monique Greene is suing Nelly for sexual assault, libel, slander and defamation stemming from an encounter with the singer on his tour bus last October. Monique claims that Nelly brought her onto his tour bus after a concert, raped her and unceremoniously (and literally) kicked her to the curb.
James Franco didn’t want your stupid old Oscar nomination anyway! Okay, well maybe he wanted it a little bit. According to E! News, James is torn. A source claims that James is both disappointed and relieved at not receiving an Academy Award nomination for his work in The Disaster Artist.
After James Franco swatted away the big reason for why he won a Golden Globe in the first place on Sunday night, he took to the mic to accept his trophy and probably thought for the next couple of months, everyone would be eating his ass while telling him that he would be an Oscar winner soon. But that dream bubble over James Franco’s head has been popped by an exposé from the Los Angeles Times.
