Fifteen years ago, documentarian Morgan Spurlock created Super Size Me and it let Americans in on a teeny, tiny secret we’ve been avoiding: fast food is bad for your health. WHO KNEW!?
Morgan Spurlock delivered brand new information by letting us know that eating fast food every day, all day is a form of psychological and physical torture. Well, Morgan Spurlock must’ve missed the clogged arteries, because he’s doing another film about fast food. This time he’s creating his own fast food chicken restaurant and exposing some of the short cuts and sidestepping of the law that gets done to make some cheap, fast food chicken. And yes, Super Size Me 2 will actually see the light of day even after Morgan Spurlock confirmed that several women were right to say #MeToo about him.
Another day, another actor learning what seems to be a pretty obvious life lesson: don’t masturbate in front of co-workers. Kip Pardue has been fined $6,000 by the Screen Actors Guild for jacking off in front of actress Sarah Scott. On top of that, another actress has come forward saying he’s pulled the same creepiness in front of her. Who knew that Louis CK also taught a Learning Annex class on appropriate onset behavior to Z-list (and I’m being generous) actors?
One of the slimy sea creatures (not a fish joke, I swear) that got caught in the wake of the 2017 #MeToo movement was Jeremy Piven. Former Playboy Playmate Ariane Bellmar accused Jeremy of groping her on the set of Entourage and later at the Playboy Mansion. Two more women also accused Jeremy of being gross, and Jeremy responded by denying it all and offering to take a lie detector test (which he passed).
Things might have worked out in Jeremy’s favor, but he’s still so upset that it happened to him, and he recently admitted he believes he was only accused because he played a douchebag on television. What a diabolical plan! Someone should alert the rest of the douchebags of Entourage, for they could all be next.
Maggie Gyllenhaal Doesn’t Like It When She’s Asked About James Franco’s Continued Employment On “The Deuce”
It’s unfair that Maggie Gyllenhaal the actress keeps getting asked about the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against James Franco, her co-star on the The Deuce (twice over, he plays twins). According to Vulture, she says it annoys her and that she doesn’t have anything to do with it. It’s absurd that women keep having to answer for men’s misdeeds for the simple fact of proximity. However, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to ask Maggie Gyllenhaal the producer about the decision to keep James on the show which has been renewed by HBO for a third and final season. When asked about that, Maggie the producer put in the position of having to use the word “nuance” a whole bunch of times.
Max Landis is the writer/director/actor son of writer/director/actor John Landis, and so you’d think that the worst thing a Landis has thrust upon humanity was Oscar (I don’t mean that, Yvonne De Carlo gave the performance of a lifetime in it). But then Max Landis proved that to be very, very wrong by the several accusations of sexual abuse against him. And now his ex-girlfriend, actress Whitney Moore, has added something more to The Max Landis Is A Pile Of Oily Anal Leakage files.
In his new memoir, Baby Don’t Hurt Me Chris Kattan discussed how he felt coerced to have a casting couch moment with director Amy Heckerling at the urging of Lorne Michaels. Saturday Night Live has responded by saying simply saying it didn’t happen. Amy has yet to respond. However, Amy’s daughter Mollie Heckerling, didn’t like the comparison between her mom and Harvey Weinstein and took to twitter to defend her mom. And it’s a lot. We learned that Amy dumped Balki from Perfect Strangers to get with Chris and Chris later cheated on her with Amber from Clueless. It’s a 90s clusterfuck.
