Blind Item #5

There were more than a few eye rolls when this A+/A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee started talking yesterday at the Women's March. Everyone knows she knew because she was regularly one of the people having sex with the disgraced producer and sending him pictures and making sure she kept getting the Oscar type roles while trashing all of her contemporaries. She knows he has those e-mails and texts where she trash talks other actresses.

Scarlett Johansson and Olivia Mann spoke at the LA March, and could fit. Natalie Portman fits best, but I don’t want to believe it is her.

Surprise, surprise lol.

sandybrook said...

If you haven't heard, JLaws hacked pics were supposedly sent to Harvey. Not Nicholas Hault.

Samantha Willow said...

Yep, that is a fact. That's the only way someone like her could get so many jobs so quick.

Jean Grey said...

Natalie Portman

rosie riveter said...

I saw scarlett in the pics and wondered when she morphed into looking like a middle school band teacher? I guess motherhood will do that though

Pokey Blow said...

So I saw this movie "the Professional" last night, with a very young Natalie Portman. It was pretty gross in a kiddie porn sense (my opinion).

Has anyone seen that? After reading this site for a while, you start to notice stuff.

DDonna Tarttty said...

i don't see any reporting that JLaw spoke anywhere yesterday, just that she showed up to march with Adele and CamDiaz.

According to today's LATimes, ScarJo ("The Mattress"!), Olivia Munn, Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria, Alfre Woodard and Viola Davis spoke at the Los Angeles Women's March.

Krab said...

Jennifer Lawrence didn't speak at the march, though.

Alyssa Milano isn't an Oscar nom/winner. Neither is Olivia Munn.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Only A+/A of all the names listed here who also spoke would be ScarJo or Portman, IMHO

fustian said...

When the pervnado started, I remembered reading a number of accounts from various A-list actresses that all sounded the same. Yes I knew about Harvey. He dropped his trousers, or he tried to make me shower with him, or he tried this or that. But I GOT AWAY. And, yes, Harvey is very vindictive if you don't give in to him, but I went on to have an A-list career including many Miramax parts.

How is this to be understood?

It suddenly hit me that they were most likely not telling the truth about the getting away part.

Then I found CDAN.

I used to think the casting couch was largely apocryphal and was a phenomenon that might only happen at the edges of Hollywood to people trying to break in. Surely, I thought, once you had made it, the casting couch was gone.

I've gotten more cynical after hanging out here for a while. Now it looks to me like almost all worthwhile parts are "pay to play" and that pretty much all A-listers are "players". At least the young, attractive ones.

Ordinarily I really take no issue with somebody that uses their attractiveness to get ahead. We all do that to the limits of what we bring to the table.

But the hypocrisy of the "we speak truth to power" activism in Hollywood is a little off-putting when so many are clearly NOT speaking truth to power.

I'm sure as well that there are those naive actors and actresses that had no idea what they were in for, or intended to just dip a toe in, and were sucked under. There are real victims in all this. For them I wish only justice and peach of mind.

But I'm beginning to understand that a lot of the people we watch on tv and in the movies realized early on: "you mean I can be rich and famous and all I've got to do is service some old dudes? SIGN ME UP!"

I'm a Hollywood outsider, so I'm just guessing here. I'm given to understand that a lot of fellow commenters here actually work in the business. Am I wrong about all this?

jane3113 said...

Has Scarlett been nominated for an Oscar?

Megerz said...

Marisa Tomei. She spoke at one of the events. Oscar winner. Early in her career she did a Weinstein movie, Playing for Keeps.

Drumstixx said...

I am thinking Scar Jo, didn't she date Jared Leto?

Gator said...

Scarlett.

Samantha Willow said...

Scarlett has not been nominated, so... Portman?

Amartel said...

fust-Times Up and all the other shenanigans (wearing black clothes, shouting at protest marches, etc.) are just cover for the people who have known all along about this sex harassment and abuse in their own industry and did nothing, nothing, nothing, so long as they profited. Women are no less complicit than men. None of them are speaking truth to power; this is all about protecting power by pretending to care. (This is my shocked and offended face in a black veil.) Of course they're lying about "getting away" but none of these bitches actually wants to cop to the price they willingly paid. They paid, they profitted, and they don't care one bit about the people who didn't get so lucky. It's not news to them but it's news to people outside the industry so now they have to all pretend to be the victims, rather than the lucky few.

Amartel said...

My guess is "all of them."

DDonna Tarttty said...

Ulp, no Oscar nom for ScarJo. I really thought she got one for one of those Woody Allen movies.

Marisa Tomei did speak in L.A. yesterday, according to a couple sites, tho the LATimes did not mention her.

So looks like we've got this narrowed down to Natalie Portman or Marisa Tomei. Tomei seems a little old for Weinstein, but I guess you never know.

Amartel said...

Look how bitchy they are to each other! Rolling their eyes at the one who can't lie convincingly about her participation in casting couch activities. Like the rest of them haven't done shady things to get ahead. What a bunch of assholes, all of them.

thiago said...

Natalie Portman make zero oscar roles in Weinstein films.


Scarlett was never nominated for Oscar.


So, obviously is our dear Jenniffer Lawrence.

Sus said...

Scarlett.

@fustian You are spot on!

DDonna Tarttty said...

@Thiago--Portman didn't need to get an Oscar nom for a Weinstein film, just the nom itself.

JLaw did not speak yesterday. It's not her. Widen your net.

The Woodman said...



@Fustian. Well said. I feel I could have written much of what you stated. I too have only been at this site a while, but long enough to be very dismayed at Hollywood's hypocrisy, and just what a cesspool it truly is. The fact we venerate these people the way we do is just so out of whack.

Rafael said...

Enty is a cuckservative Trump supporter...so he faked this blind trying to shame the women marching against Trump. Pathetic. LOL

Rafael said...

Enty is no different than the creep Mossad guys Harvey hired to shame the abused actresses. He is probably Mossad either. Biggest scumbags ever.

AKA said...

Them knowing about sexual harassment does not mean they were not victims themselves. You can't report a rumor to police. Please get a clue. I'm so sick of stupid people saying "they knew" therefore its their fault it went on for so long. It's like no matter what the women are to blame. Most humans wouldnt give up their source of income to fight a losing battle. None of you would do this.

Pokey Blow said...

You can't report rumors to police, but you can refuse to work with people of awful reputation. Especially once you're a multimillionaire.

You can refrain from saying someone with a reputation for sexual criminality is "God."

Krab said...

AKA--yes.

Unknown said...

LA had Scarlett Johansson, Laverne Cox, Olivia Munn, Olivia Wilde

Scarlett "I love cum" Jo has only done bit parts in TV, I don't think that qualifies as "Mostly movies". And no Oscar nods, just GG. Laverne...nah. Olivia, no Oscar, but lots of TV. Wilde, lots of TV, no Oscar.

Vega had Marisa Tomei.

Marisa has done more TV, and has an Oscar. But she hasn't exactly been getting Oscar level parts.

Natalie Portman has an Oscar, but has only one TV credit for one episode of CSi as an adult. Before that, sesame Street in 2004.

NY had Rose McGowan
Lots of TV. No Oscar.

Additional speakers:

Viola Davis
Won an Oscar. Has done a lot of TV. Has gotten a lot of Oscar worthy roles. A list?

Eva Longoria
C'mon.

Jon Whitfield said...

fustian....so very well stated!

Stormy Daniels AKA - Peggy Peterson (I'll even bring the Spanx/Spanks!) said...

It hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized JLaw participated with Weinstein sending him naked pics. Because remember when not just her but a plethora of other actresses claimed their social media's were also hacked and their pics were stolen???? Makes one wonder if they TOO sent their pics to Weinstein and it was Weinstein's accounts that was hacked and the hacker got all the naked pics of everyone and released them!!! I'm betting Weinstein shared/forwarded those naked pics onto "friends" and perhaps those "friends" accounts were also hacked.

Sadie said...

Neither ScarJo nor Olivia Munn (do people actually READ these blinds) have Oscar noms.

Natalie Portman

thiago said...

If Portman was frequent in Weinstein bed, i believe she was frequent in his movies too.

I can be wrong, though.

Stormy Daniels AKA - Peggy Peterson (I'll even bring the Spanx/Spanks!) said...

I've posted before: With all of the intel Obama had at his fingertips, no one can tell me he wasn't aware of Weinstein's mess, then sent his daughter to work with him as well as she worked as a PA on a film few years back. Only thing that saved HER was she had secret service with her. My point being, is Obama, Oprah, et al, ALL knew of the Hollyweird goings on yet they continued to play the "game." Have to wonder why the "Oprah's/Obama's" the wealthy ones, played, why? It wasn't for money or fame, they all had that.

Sus said...

The blind do not say the actress has an Oscar or a nomination, just that he keep offering her "Oscar type roles". I still go with Scarlett.

beebopcowboy said...

while JLaw didn't speak at the march, she was there. there is absolutely NO ONE who benefited more from Harvey Weinstein than Jennifer Lawrence. tho as stated, she didnt speak. Scarjo hasn not been any movies backed by Weinstein, which is the puzzling part.

all the hacked pics of JLaw were from Harvey's treasure chest.

After JLaw won her Oscar, she said to Weinstein in the audience. "Harvey, I don't know who you had to kill to get me this."

JLaw, he didn't kill anyone.

But we know what you did to get it.

As long as others were being brutalized/victimized & JLaw wasnt, she didn't give a damn.

fustian said...

@AKA: I read somewhere that Hollywood always asks the question: "How far will you go to be famous?"

I think for many of us outside the industry, the answer is "not very far". Speaking for average people far from Hollywood, we are stunned at what passes for normal behavior there.

Also, I think it's important to separate desperate people forced to do awful things to survive, from those that willingly and enthusiastically play this game just to get a nice part that they think might advance their career. Ones that apparently don't see anything particularly wrong with it. The former should have nothing but our support and I for one hope they nail the bastards that abused them.

But if I am to believe that women like Jennifer Lawrence and/or Natalie Portman and other A-listers have been porking producers all along, not because they are desperate to survive, but just to get ahead, I guess that I wouldn't have that much sympathy. These are women that presumably have lots of options and cash in the bank.

Worse is when such a character then turns around and wraps themselves in the mantle of meToo.

The sense I am getting from CDAN is that most or even ALL of our A-list actresses (AND actors I'm finding out) have been willing users of the casting couch and they intend to get right back on it as soon as nobody is looking. How can these people get up and make the speeches they do?

Oh yeah. I guess it's acting!

beebopcowboy said...

Natalie Portman has only worked w/the Weinstein Company when it was distributing Jane Got Her Gun & Blueberry Nights. She was cast & film made before Weinstein Co/Miramax even bought the rights.

It's odd, cause besides those two distribution deals, Portman has no connection to Weinstein. Plus - she was too young to reap the benefits at his peak (she was doing the star wars prequels during that time). still, she DID speak at the rally & has an Oscar. Scarjo does not have an Oscar nom or win.

Everything but the speaking part fits for JLaw.

Annyoung Bluth said...

Natalie Portman and I'm not a fan but her speech was on point. And she didn't deserve the harassment she got at 13 years old. And generally So what? They agreed to have sex to further their career. They didn't assault anyone. They didn't force themselves on anyone. And agreeing to do that with one person doesn't mean you can't be violated by another.

The women who didn't agree were destroyed. They genuinely made the right calculation that this was necessary. Even if we don't respect it. And now we are all dragging them and saying they must keep their mouths shut? The idea that a woman most be completely pure to even dare speak out against endemic sexual harassment and assault is ridiculous.

Guesser said...

The wording of the blind makes me think the actress didn't a tually make a speech,maybe did on camera comments, so I will go with JLaw as a guess.

Picklet said...

You're wrong about that. She was an Oscar nominee looking before she worked with Weinstein and her early career was mainly championed by women: Lori Petty, Charlize Theron, Suzanne Collins, Debra Granik and Jodie Foster. She got her 2 most lucrative deals (X-Men and Hunger Games) on the back of her Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone. She only became involved with HW when she signed up to work with David O'Russell as HW finances for O'Russell.

Picklet said...

It tries to normalize a pedophilic relationship but I won't hold that against Portman. She was a kid. The film is overrated and perverse.

TimC said...

sure it may be Jennifer Lawrence, but shes laughing...she's too big to fail.

Picklet said...

Also, if somebody had reported what they heard and the victim had signed a settlement agreement, then the person reporting can get into legal hot water for breaching the settlement agreement. Unless it involves a child, the victim has to report it themselves otherwise nothing will change.

The only people who definitely knew where the ones who went through it. It's their responsibility, not just to themselves but to others, to report it. If ordinary women without privilege, wealth or fame can do it, then so can famous, wealthy privileged women. It's a choice.

Pokey Blow said...

If you have $5 million in the bank and keep working with a rapist because that's not enough, hell yes you are complicit.

Cheez Whiz said...

Probably not Johansson because of the lack of Oscar nominations, but here's a delightfully catty article about her speech from a delightfully catty gossip site. Worth the read, even if it doesn't answer this blind:

http://dlisted.com/2018/01/21/scarlett-johansson-dragged-james-franco-at-the-womens-march/#more-280754

Sus said...

ScarJo said "older men and younger women aren't really a stretch, particularly in the movies. 'Men age like wine, and women seem to wilt in the eyes of an audience," she says."

lab lover said...

The blind doesn't say "gave a speech", it says "started talking". I'm sure that just because she wasn't on a podium doesn't mean that she wasn't vocal. So I still say JL.

DonnaMarie said...

I agree with lab lover. It says nothing about giving a speech and Natalie does not have many (if any?) ties with Miramax or Harvey. JLaw fits the answer.

CocoWildacre said...

The reason the whole "they knew" accusations bug me is that when you put it into the context of these people working in an industry in which rumor and innuendo are stock in trade, you can understand that they would be disinclined to report or in any other way act upon the rumors, even if they were pervasive. They have probably ALL found themselves the subject of speculation, and nasty rumors
not just in social media, or the press, but in social and business environments. They say Hollywood is high school with money and that being the case, I can see vicious rumors and out right lies spread by vindictive or ambitious participants could be a dangerous ground to tread on.

T. W. said...

No, but she did sing "Before My Time" which was nominated for best song.

T. W. said...

The blind clearly states the actress has or was nominated for an Academy Award and she has acted in tv and/or theatre. I have a list of 7. Each of these women have television acting credits.

We can expand the list to include ScarJo ONLY if Enty is being loose with his definition of Oscar nominated. She sang in an Oscar nominated song titled "Before My Time."

1. Maggie Gyllenhaal - nominated in 2012
2. Dame Hellen Mirren - 4 noms, 1 win
3. Natalie Portman - Best Actress win
4. Viola Davis - 2016 winner
5. Jessica Chastain - nominated in 2011 and 2012
6. Charlize Theron - 2 noms, 1 win
7. Marissa Tomei - winner

Lalafalala said...

I agree partially, but whether or not women (or men) played the game, it doesn't make it right that they were ever put in that position in the first place. I can't think of many other professions where sexual pressure is so rampant. Is it wrong for these people to seek change, even if they benefited from the old system? Is it wrong for them to hope that future generations of actors won't have to make the same choice to sacrifice their morals in order to succeed? I think it is rather sanctimonious to assume that their support means nothing because they may have given in to the system, and they aren't pretending to be victims. It was illegal for those men to ask them to do those actions, and those men had the ability to impact their success and income if they did not agree. Whether or not they choose to have sex, they were victims of a corrupt system that put them in that situation in the first place.

Lalafalala said...

Great points!

Pugmumma0 said...

I think this is Jlaw 100% BUT did Mila Kunis speak? I believe she won an award for supporting actress for black swan..

Boldblonde said...

I was wondering what J Law was doing there.

Amartel said...

They are part of the corrupt system and all this blither is nothing more than covering for that system while pushing their personal brand of bullshit virtue-signaling activism. All of them knew this had been going on for decades. If you think it's just the men, you are mistaken. Also, no real sacrifice has been made, nor will it be. Some deadwood got cleared out, sacrificed for the greater good. Probably settled a couple of scores there, too. Other than that, nothing will change. You still won't know the names of the real victims.

Looooong time lurker, just started commenting in the past couple of weeks. Could NOT follow the other format at all, so dropped but here I am again... checking back several times a day to see if anything new has come out since the last time I checked... It is addicting. I remember VIPBlonde and her avatar and her being right 100% - she had the solid numbers that Tricia has now. I - because of this site - got the how I wish it wasn't such an 'inside joke' of the Bryan Singer Pool Party reference on SNL last week with the young boys from Never Never Land! hehehee I am so waiting for all of these to come out and looking forward to more 'drunk and disorderly', careless but consensual hookups, etc., and less sexual assault, rape, child sex trafficking, pedophilia, and outing of closeted homosexual blinds. And, I sooooooooo want the Chris C. and Chester B. information out in the open. I loved and love both of them and two pieces of 'the best days of my life' went away with their losses.

I'm going with Jennifer Lawrence for this blind... I remember the past reveal a couple of weeks ago of JLaw involving side eye with Elvis's granddaughter, Riley Keough over the pictures, no?

OffWithTheirHeads said...

The correct answer is of course all of them. Even the men.

Forget college campuses, Hollywood is the real "hunting ground".

T. W. said...

Mila has not been nominated for an Oscar. She won a Scream Award for her performance in Black Swan.

Buttercups said...

I never bought the Jennifer Lawrence story. She was starring in TV shows as a young teen, and got Oscar nominated for a tiny low-budget film directed by a woman. Certainly no Weinstein involvement there. She landed two massive franchises (Hunger Games and X-Men) before she ever worked with Weinstein. Weinstein didn't even meet her until after she was a AA nominee and being promoted in the press as a future A-lister. So any casting couch would have had to happen after she was already an Oscar nominee starring in a major franchise, which is possible but dubious. By all accounts Weinstein never went after successful or famous women, only vulnerable women who were relative unknowns.

Besides it's well known that Weinstein spread fake rumours that he'd slept with women he'd not slept with, and it's well known that CDAN was one of Weinstein's chief mouthpieces. I'd bet money Weinstein didn't approach JLaw but that he spread a false rumour about sleeping with her.

T. W. said...

I forgot about Jennifer Lawrence being an Oscar winner. My guess is her or Helen Mirren.

Manhattan Vibe said...

I want to say Scar-Jo but she hasn't been nominated for any Oscar roles and I can't think of any movie she's played in that involved Harvey.

Did Jennifer even speak at the Women's Day March? I only saw Scar-Jo and Viola speeches. Either way, I think this might be BS. There is no actress that fits this bill.

Silly said...

Scar Jo won a British Academg Award 🥇
It could also be Natalie Portman . Those two gave speeches. ScarJo is known for opening her legs quite often.

Hanniam said...

You said what I’ve been trying to find the words for better than I could have. So I’ll just add: ^^^^^ this.

Sara, Making It Work said...

We already know Natalie sleeps with her directors, so this wouldn't be a stretch. But wouldn't Enty say if she was foreign born?

I'm going Marisa Tomei. She has been completely silent (as far as I know) on the Harvey situation. She has worked with him since the 80s, and he was already getting a reputation then.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Faux Feminists are the absolute worst.

Court b said...

It was an extremely popular movie when it came out, introducing, a young Natalie Portman. Danny aiello was at the height of his popularity after a few hits, and I assume you caught on to the villain being played by Gary Oldman? It came out the same year as pulp fiction, and was really the year that independent film finally was really recognized. Leon: the professional, was based on the book. It was actually tamed down for American audiences, and I've been told the book was much more pedo.

Court b said...

People my age immediatly thought of Natalie Portman in the professional, when Millie Bobby brown graced the screen in stranger things, Natalie Portman to this day, owes her career to that film.

Jennifer Lawrence.

Cesspit of hypocrites, Hollywood is finished, it will never recover from all of this. People are grossed out and disgusted by all of their virtue signalling, while supporting rape, pedophilia, and whoring themselves out, only to then 5 minuted later, claim they were abused.
Burn that shit down.

We solved the Church's Investment

You know, the absolutely impossible story that a religious organization funded a bioweapon?

Court documents strongly indicate:

The Mormon Church worked with South Africa during the apartheid to fund an ebola-like virus to target black people

Read the most recent comments. Enty has lead us to discover a horrible truth.

Dont just brush this off as impossible. Open your mind and heart.

We need to confront societal darkness

J said...

JLaw has always been pro Weinstein/Couch. Let's not take shots at enty, he is our friend. I do wonder how he feels about Aziz being too scared to go to the SAG, yet his "friend" Franco doesn't give a fuck.

Citizen S said...

"The" Women's March? Which Women's March does this refer to? There were hundreds of them.
Lots of celebrities spoke at them in various cities.

Cher spoke at the March in Las Vegas. Maybe it was her.
Lots of celebrities spoke at ones out east, New York, and in Chicago. Even in Atlanta.
