Blind Item #1

Apparently that whole #MeToo thing only is relevant to this A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee if it doesn't involve a paycheck. The actress, who has been a crusader of sorts in the movement has agreed to star in a film by a director who has assaulted multiple women, some of which for many years and has more assault charges from other people that are difficult to even tally because of the number. But hey, you do you.

Jessica chastain?

Tricia13 said...

Yep and Matthew Newton

Good morning #CDAN

What a surprise.

MDAnderson said...

Knew she was a phony.

Me Again said...

@Tricia....you are correct. The Guardian has an article up about this. He sounds charming, not.

Ophelia said...

Ugh I was hoping she was a good egg

totaji said...

Why are we bashing actresses looking for work when it’s the studios employing these vermin who should be getting the ire. My boss is a total bag of dicks. Most are. We all need jobs.

BestMan said...

Good point

Neal M said...

I just read the Guardian article after Tricia mentioned it... Wow, just wow.

I can't even manage to articulate anything other than that. What in the world?

Neal M said...

totaji No, this isn't a poor little actress desperately needs the work - she is the PRODUCER of the film!!!!

"The US actor Jessica Chastain, a vocal supporter of the Time’s Up movement and women in film, has come under fire for hypocrisy after the Australian Matthew Newton was selected to direct and write a new film, Eve, which Chastain is co-producing."

“I’ve always made choices, in all the work that I’ve done, to make sure that on any film set that I’m working with people that there isn’t a question about whether or not abuse has taken place,” she said. “It’s very important to me that I practice what I preach, and that my actions follow my words.”

MDAnderson said...

Don’t call out Bryan Singer and act all MeToo and then go work for a well documented women beater. The other actresses keep their mouth shut and keep on working.

J said...

We all need jobs. Yes, that's mostly true.

We don't all need multimillion-dollar-per-film contracts and People magazine covers.

Some of us really really need those things, and are willing to sleep with whomever they think can arrange them.

Problem starts when the money doesn't materialize, or does, but dries up after a while.

That's when our actresses start thinking of plan B to become famous, or at least raise some cash. #metoo.

Unknown said...

Chastain must be a walking psyop. She hasn’t had shit in nearly 4 years but keeps getting work. Mostly “message” pictures that flop.

Then again she’s the personal pet of the Ellison family.

Unknown said...

Hasn’t had a hit. But auto correct got it right for once.

Og said...

This is totally right on. If you work for a jerk or pervert you still beed a check, insurance, etc. What do you do? And isn't it more the studio that hired him?

J said...

Yeah, she needs insurance.

It's pretty clear now that Asia Argento is the #1 witness against Weinstein and got her standing ovation at Cannes, and that none of the coverage of the suit against him mentions her by name as her case is being torn apart by the fact she "dated" him for five years after the rape, the whole #MeToo things was a giant psyop distraction to draw attention away from the pedophile ring.

Chastain we all should've known was a psyop herself once she starred in ZD30. The Bryan Singer comments were just another easy win for her. When push comes to shove, she's as much a cover up hypocrite as anybody. And she's not that attractive and she's not that great an actress. She's there by design. I will never pay to see another of her films.

J said...

She didn't "date" him. She dated him. He took her to meet his mom. This is made clear in the Ronan Farrow article. So of course her case is being torn apart. It is thoroughgoing bullshit.

Damelon Brinn said...

It's called "aiding and abetting." Holding her responsible for that doesn't mean you let the primary criminals off the hook. You charge the prostitute *and* the john *and* the pimp *and* the cop who took bribes to look the other way. This isn't that hard.

totaji said...

Excellent point!

Neal M said...

She is the PRODUCER, you justification morons. I tried to tell you this nicely, but you want to persist with this stupidity.
Even if she wasn't putting this film together and had ZERO clout on who the director was going to be, it is easy to be all righteous when you have it made, the proof is when you are willing to actually sacrifice and feel a little pain to stand up for what you believe.

But this is the age old story of how Hollywood gets you, how you sink into the slime - "Can I get a role in your movie? I just want to act. I would do it for free if I could."

"Oh no, we can't let you do that, union rules and all... Here take 50k to do this role..."

Eventually the 50k becomes 500k then 5 million per role and the star has a plane, 4 houses and is thinking about buying that private island that came on the market...
"I need this role!!!"

"Yeah, we know you do honey... meet your director, and why don't we move over to the couch..."


Then it is "

Tricia13 said...

She the picture of piety....
I disdain Chastain.
Always have

Neal M said...

Part cut got cut off:

"Then it becomes (the final step) "Do you have any young actresses you can bring to meet us..."

That is when you are officially in Meryl Streep territory and have completely sold you soul. But don't worry, you are so powerful you will still get that standing ovation even after your slimeball mentor is facing prison time.

AkhaldanSolo said...

Are you all starting to get that dreaded feeling the MeToo movement really is just a turnover in Hollywood assett management and that we have all been conned, again? That all of the problems we have been outlining here and on twatter are just going to fade back into the limelight an that we are STUCK with this huge industrial size propaganda and sexual abuse machine. Guess that's what happens to a society that isn't bright enough to even realize their own conditioning.

Do Tell said...

Used Kleenex > #TeamGeeljire

Geeljire said...

Look at this Kleenex shill running guerilla market in comments

Pokey Blow said...

Akhaldan, who is this we that got conned? Anyone paying attention could see it was bullshit from day one.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Mediocre white male writer/directors are a dime a dozen. Why go out on a limb on some guy most people have never even heard of? I don't get why he got the job in the first place. Surely there were a hundred others equally qualified.

Neal M said...

I believe like a lot of popular movements the foot soldiers/little people were sincere in their efforts, but once I saw the usual cast of attention whores throwing themselves into the IMAGE of it at the award shows - the women who date, marry, provide beard and pimp service (Honey, I want you to meet my dear friends Harvey. Oh yes, he is perfectly safe, you can go to his hotel room for that reading!")for the worst of the worst, and the same people giving Harvey's biggest pimp/enablers Oprah, J Law, and Meryl standing ovations like nothing ever happened, but they couldn't drag Harvey out of town fast enough...I wonder how long until all the footage of these actresses praising Harvey are destroyed and Harvey is airbrushed out of photos where they are letting him wrap his beefy arm around their slender waists with big smiles on all their faces?

AgonyAunt said...

Chastain is about 7 years older than she admits. And she only likes vay-vay. So she's a liar on ALL fronts. And a whore. They're ALL whores. That's how they get their parts. But faggots and shippers continue to fawn over satanic-baby-eaters. Just BDS them. And their power will be immediately drained.

AkhaldanSolo said...

What the fuck are you talking about Panty Blow? Rose Mcgowans Childen of God ass is STILL sitting pretty blowin lines offa dicks a butt cracks thinking she has pulled one off for the big guys and noone in society is ever going to get the level of truth to understand the reality of how dirty and conniving she is or the intricacies of how Hollywood REALLY works, that people were set in motion as literal AGENTS to make high end mergers happen to complete ANOTHER phase of consolidation of the powers that be to continue their brainwashing efforts.

I am elated to see that you of all people are smarter than the average Joblonski but I'll tell ya godamn there are still quite a few people that are still seriously on board with this entire thing. Weinstein's still going to trial for real crimes right? We see a ton of real crimes from the same syndicates here every day right? You tell me who's still not fooled. Geez.

Neal M said...

NO need for you guys to argue, you are both partially right. MeToo was doomed the minute Hollywood co-opted it for virtue signaling. Some people were fooled, some weren't. It isn't worth fighting over who was fooled or not.

Neal M said...

You literally had Hollywood whores, pimps for Harvey, enablers and beards, washed up and faded gold diggers, druggies, and a variety of other ladder climbers shoving real rape/molestation victims out of the way and trampling over their already broken bodies and spirits to get to the microphone to proclaim themselves a victim because they didn't get enough for all the sex they gave away to the power brokers, or how they are a victim because when they came in with their slut dress on and tits hanging out and legs showing all the way to the pubes - a casting director told them they needed to lose 5 pounds for a role... WORSE THAN RAPE! Or how they should be running a studio at the ripe old age of 26 and trying to use METOO to make it happen.

They're ALL whores. That's how they get their parts. But faggots and shippers continue to fawn over satanic-baby-eaters. Just BDS them. And their power will be immediately drained.

Great point agony aunt. Let me add to that. See how "makeup" and COSMETICS have descended from the Egyptians into these high end fashion houses that have made a huge multibillion dollar industry for women to cover themselves up with a mask to hide their true identities? Well, yes, they ALL know and rely off the fact that most of them don't look ANYTHING like they do on film and can, most times, slip into the mainstream without being noticed, for the most part. Well, the reality is much worse for stars and the world. The cosmetics Industry has built up along side it the same kind of demonic energy around it as it did back in the Egyptian and Babylonian days. It's the same reason and principle that these people are so morally and spiritually DEGRADED that they HAVE to have that makeup on or you WILL see their true demonic and decrepit nature. Why do you think the worst ones that fall into vanities trap are the ones that turn out looking like they are straight up DEMONS with lip fillers and fake cheeks. You think a Kardashian would ever let her see you without makeup even if you were on top of her (sorry folks for putting that thought in your head, free 2x4's to strap on to your ass if you you are one of the ones who want to so you don't fall in).

The truth of the matter is, THOSE ARE the real demons portrayed in movies like Shwartzeneggars End of Days, without make-up these people are horrible hideous creatures that prefer isolation and dark compared to the light. These metaphors for vampires are real, once you understand this you'll start seeing them everywhere.

Yeah, Chastain is pretty, but that trauma and asskissing and SODOMITE WORSHIP is going to take it's toll just like every Simpson, Lohan, Olsen or Kardashian, just watch.

nonyabusiness said...

MeToo is bullshit.

plot said...

Yeah but will the movie be any good?

Unknown said...

Because they claim they won’t work with certain people who have been accused of taking advantage of people who don’t have power... but are QUICK to work with them. It’s hypocritical. They claim they stand for something when they really don’t.

Amartel said...

This is why the only credible allegations are the ones that are made at least within the statute of limitations. This whole going back years/decades later, after the pervert's political and economic value has decreased, is bullshit. Everyone profited from letting the pervert continue earning without prosecution or even investigation. Now you can all just continue staying quiet.

kiki71 said...

No one is chastising actresses. Just don't get on the bandwagon and then be a hypocrite. Jessica Chastain is not a low level actress! And she is a producing the movie so she could in turn, esp. with her weight as an actress, demand a different director. Live what you preach. It is the only way to create real change. Someone who makes her salary and has her level of fame and prestige ought to use it for good!

Ophelia said...

@kiki +1. Gal Gadot did that with Wonder Woman & Ratner (although Enty claims Ratner clawed his way back into the picture)

Angela said...

Hey, it's funny...

All Enty did was to take something that was already in the news and to be more vague about it, to turn it into a blind item.

The story broke wide today (before this BI was actually published, but they're written in advance, then posted every 15 minutes on an automatic schedule). However, there was a campaign by disappointed Chastain fans on Twitter that had resulted in some coverage in the press as early as August 3, four days ago.

https://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/the-wrap/article/Jessica-Chastain-Asked-to-Drop-Director-Matthew-13130933.php

The BI just adds speculation on Chastain's motivations to work with Newton. But do you think Enty has a direct connection to her brain, or that he just tries to pass this story as something for which he has inside sources, except that it broke big earlier than he had thought?

Paul Saint John said...

Yeah, like Weinstein did! Who says Jessica Chastain is a good person?

The Woodman said...


Why was Geeljire so angry the other day? Or that always the case?

tinydancer61 said...

My problem with #metoo is that we're talking about adult women willingly participating in favors they figured would get them to the front of the line, ahead of the truly talented. The disgusting, perverted men who took advantage of those poor little kids in the business for their sick pleasure--that's who needed protection and their own movement. Not grown-ass women who actually benefited from playing a twisted game.

The Woodman said...

J F said...

Omg... that shitstain Harvey has a mom? I never really thought of it... just figured he evolved from some toxic sludge somewhere long ago.

That bitch should be shot for squeezing that turd out into this world.

As to the #metoo skanks? They would give a handjob to a homeless man for a scratcher ticket

J F said...

He sometimes gets a bad batch of drugs... it'll pass.

Paul Saint John said...

Compared to David Geffen or Bryan Singer or other people, Harvey Weinstein is a choirboy! Weinstein is scum, but there are worse people in Hollywood. For some reason, he was made into a fall guy.

SophiaPetrillo77 said...

@tinydancer61 exactly.. they couldn't care less about the child victims.

Bleu said...

Or hmm maybe there's a qualified woman who could have gotten this job?

Jennifer Low Rents said...

So that's where that drug addled, woman beating prick ended up?

We haven't seen him here in Australia for years, when he got totally humiliated doing drunken, stupid shit in America.

Unfortunately for you guys, he's still there? I thought the bastard had curled up and died somewhere, never to be heard from again. Pity.

atd8vii said...

And she claims that she factors whether or not the director/actor has a history of abuse when she decides whether or not to work with them.

atd8vii said...

Nail on the head.

Though this is the case with 90% of the blinds on this site, they are lifted from tabloid articles and made more vague.

Dannette said...

Whatever is fine with me. Saves me from having to read any tabs. Thanks Enty, I would probably not have heard of the predictable hypocrisy of another bigmouth Hwood actress.

GentleBreeze said...

JF are you trying to conjure Viking Song?

GentleBreeze said...

The courts have guardian ad litems for minors who can't speak for themselves. Who should abused children in HWood have? Their parents!

HDNYC said...

@JF - “Miramax” is named after Harvey’s mom and dad. Miriam and Max.
