Harvey Weinstein may be the reason Ashley Judd’s currently starring in A Dog’s Way Home instead of wearing a catsuit and fucking shit up as Thor’s mom or something, but a judge just told her Harvey doesn’t have to pay her to make up for it. Back in May, Ashley filed a sexual harassment suit against Harvey claiming he shut her out from being cast in Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings trilogy and initiated a smear campaign against her after she declined one of his trademark massage requests back in 1997. Peter even confirmed that Harvey steered him away from casting her in LOTR. However, a judge just declared that the producer/actress relationship was not covered under sexual harassment protections at the time of the initial filing.
Ashley Judd was one of the first actresses to speak out and name Harvey Weinstein as an alleged creep when The New York Times and The New Yorker blew the lid off his reputation as a handsy horror. Ashley wasn’t content with just telling her story; she also sued him a few months ago. But because Harvey thinks he’s done nothing wrong, he’s trying his damndest to have Ashley’s lawsuit thrown out.
Ashley Judd isn’t done with Harvey Weinstein. She’s approaching this with a real “FINISH HIM” attitude, and I think as fans of watching Harvey Weinstein burn, that’s something we can all get behind. Ashley helped expose him, dragged him on TV, and now she’s getting legal revenge.
While the Golden Globes was all about #MeToo, BuzzFeed points out that the Oscars were a bit more relaxed with it. Ashley Judd, Annabella Sciorra, and Salma Hayek did talk about Time’s Up a bit during the ceremony, in Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue, he tore into Harvey Weinstein and how tone deaf Hollywood had been by joking, “Here’s how clueless Hollywood is about women. They made a movie called What Women Want and it literally starred Mel Gibson.” I’m sure that pissed off Mel’s BFF4L Jodie Foster, and I’m sure she wanted to hit Jimmy with her crutch over.
There seemed to be fewer Time’s Up pins on dresses and jackets. But Emma Watson tried to represent the movement with a most likely temporary tattoo, but she got dragged for not running her tattoo idea through Microsoft Word spellcheck because it lacked an apostrophe.
Her “Time’s Up” was a sad “Times Up,” which everyone knows is how you lose a fight in the family text thread. No matter if you made the most logical argument as to why you should get to skip Christmas at home this year, the first sign of lackluster punctuation shows you’re an ignoramus and everyone’s punching bag for the next seven years. Great work, Emma! Time’s Up is ruined because you missed apostrophe class at Brown!
Here’s more of Emma and her “Times Up” tattoo and baby bangs last night.
Angelina Jolie Decided To Fulfill Someone’s Feathered 60s Fantasy Last Night (And Other Looks From The Golden Globes)
Almost everyone who walked the Golden Globes red carpet this year wore black to protest Hollywood’s sexual misconduct problem. One thing that wasn’t being protested was good taste. There were a lot of black velvet outfits on that red carpet. Sure, it’s a bit of an obvious choice, but a choice I was absolutely here for, because anything that makes my brain start blasting “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles gets two thumbs up from me.
But some people went a little more experimental with their all-black interpretation. Like Angelina Jolie, who showed up to the Golden Globes in some goth Lawrence Welk Show realness by Atelier Versace. It’s a little Barbra Streisand at the 1969 Oscars, with a splash of 60s televangelist, all poured onto a fainting couch and garnished with, “But detective, I swear my husband was dead when I found him!”
If 2017 was the year all the handsy bathrobe-wrapped assholes in Hollywood were publicly outed, then it looks like 2018 is the year where women officially stop having to put up with it. It’s retribution time in Hollywood. 300 actresses, agents, writers, directors, producers, and entertainment executives recently took out an ad in The New York Times announcing an initiative to fight sexual harassment in Hollywood and workplaces nationwide.
