Seriously.

Beloved Producer?
Brian Grazer?

Notagoodscreenname said...

I'm sorry for your experience.

What types of movies/etc does he produce? Genre?

And are you a well known name?

Haha

MDAnderson said...

I wonder if beloved is a clue to Oprah’s movie that was produced by her and Jonathan Demme. But agree this could be one of many.

fnchrstphr said...

Whose? You mean who's or who is.

Tierney said...

There are producers who are 'beloved'?

Brayson87 said...

Reddit, really?

Is this the Entern's work?

It was posted on a conspiracy subreddit and the account has since been deleted!

Before it was deleted:

So, I posted in the casual ama subreddit yesterday because I tried to post in the verified AMA subreddit but was directed there due to my inability to give out proof. I’m still trying to figure out how to do that.

My rapist helped me build my career. The abuse happened on a film set over the course of 8 months. He started with getting me drunk and touching my private’s to asking me if I wanted to know how it felt to have something inserted into me. He did this again and again, and when it hurt I felt uncomfortable telling him because I felt like he just wanted to make me feel good. Once the filming was over I was told by him that if I ever talked about what happened between us he would take my credits off of the film. He eventually started contacting me due to the success of the film and my ability to keep his secret. I think he wanted to help me to keep me quiet to be honest. He helped me build a really successful career. I spent years ignoring what happened to me, only for it to destroy my mental health. I was diagnosed with BPD in the summer of 2013 after a suicide attempt. During which time I was finally able to remember details of what happened to me.

I watched Leaving Neverland this past weekend, and it tore me apart. I relate to both of the survivors, primarily Safechuck in how he dealt with the abuse, internalizing it, and Robson in how he developed a need to please MJ and continued to support him publicly. I felt that both of those men are telling the truth because of how much their stories mirrored mine.

I am currently in the process of building a case to come out publicly, but I need time and courage to do so. My reason for posting on reddit is I am a ghost user normally, I am on here all of the time casually, and I know the community is one that is on the more intelligent side and could help me move on to the next step of coming out. Also, I fucking feel like it.

A few things: Please don’t play the guessing game, I’m not going to respond to it.

Yes, I have a team of lawyers, and psychiatrists and psychologists that are bound to secrecy by the laws within HIPPA.

My family is not capable of comprehending the situation. So don’t even ask.

I will not contact Ronan Farrow, I’ve debated this approach, but I want this to be different and I feel a lot of people in Hollywood find him to be an inauthentic source. Woody Allen is someone I fear in Hollywood. He is also a good example of why I’m so terrified of talking about this publicly. He can make or break a career, easily. I do want to get hired again. Especially for more serious roles.

Notagoodscreenname said...

Sorry but what you described isn't rape.

Boozie said...

I'm copy/pasting what they posted, @notagoodscreenname. Not myself saying it.

Sarah said...

Notagoodscreenname, did you read the Reddit thread?

Penetrated at 13 definitely is rape.

Go and read it.

luckythewondercat said...

Is this Dancing Boy?

Pissoff said...

This

Notagoodscreenname said...

@sarah No I haven't. Thanks.

Notagoodscreenname said...

@Boozie, got it

J said...

Umm, ok. What's the holdup?

P. Edwin Nibbles said...

@J If I know my Hollywood types - and I believe I do - the holdup is, "How much dinero can I get for this story?"

anonymous said...

I aways have a complex feeling about the people in showbiz, it's not cold-blooded or something.
As an adult or the guardian of the child star, you should aware that there are tons of monsters in this industry, they shouldn't exist, but they DO, and nothing can change that, the rapists/children molesters/sexual abusers could be powerful directors, politician, billionaires even terrorists. If you want a successful career you must sale your body and soul to demons. Yes, they're victims and it's not their fault, the damage is done,but they should consider seriously before taking the job, or quit it as soon as they can.
Always remember NO PAIN NO GAIN and NO FREE LUNCH

timebob said...

While my heart breaks for them what will most likely happen the actor put out feelers. It will get back to the producer and the actor will get a pay day to stay quiet. I don't blame them either.

It won't come out we have seen too many of these posts. Then POOF! nothing happens and it fades away.


Chris said...

more info on this, another deleted exchange:

Random reddit poster: Nobody cares that you're gay. like fucking nobody outside of some gossip magazine: is the first thing to consider.

You got raped, go to the police... it's not hard. You are part of the problem for not reporting it immediately and leaving it until it became some kind of publicity stunt.

Are you aware that you are just attention seeking here and there is nothing the general public can do to help you?

The "actor" : First of all asshat, I am attention seeking, because I live in a fucking world of torment thanks to this piece of shit. YOU HAVE NO IDEA what my life is like, so step the fuck back and look at yourself. Why do you have such a need to knock someone down who is reporting this shit? I am not gay, and even if I was, I wouldn't give a fuck.

Going to the police with this sort of thing is extremely complicated, and if you weren't a fucking idiot, you would know that. They can't prove shit without a rape kit that cannot even be used this long after an event. Plenty of people come forward, but the police can't prove dick. Especially since what happened to me happened when I was a fucking kid and was confused as all hell. It was also long before smart phones.

Substance D said...

This guy has a successful show biz career and his family can't comprehend the situation? In 2019? On planet Earth? In Hollywood USA? This sounds like an attempt at misdirection. Creating a fake scandal to keep eyes off some real names and scandals. Decoys. Happens all the time in ground wars. And duck hunts.

Og said...

I took him at value until his Ronan Farrow comment. He does know that Ronan hates Woody, right?

Elphin MacSkye said...

"Beloved" = Speilberg, or someone on that level. Just come out with it - turn the rocks over so these lizards can fry in the sunshine of truth.

Unknown said...

They can also be teachers, parents, coaches, neighbors, babysitters, friends, they can be anyone

3s and 7s said...

Shia

E said...

How awful--to have this happen to use, and to get skewered by internet assholes when you try to reach out to test the waters for reactions.

I hope this kid is ok and gets the courage to do what he feels is the right thing

E said...

use = you

KnitWit said...

Perhaps reconsider talking to Ronan Farrow. He is a journalist with a legal background. Others in your situation, perhaps victims of the same abuser, have probably also contacted him. Joining with fellow victims of the same abuser will strengthen your position.

Oscar said...

Check this thread

https://www.reddit.com/r/casualiama/comments/axngqk/i_am_a_survivor_of_child_sexual_abuse_in/

In the comments, he said he's Jewish and that he worked with Brad Pitt. He also said that the public thinks he's mentally unstable. That, combined with the mention of working on a kid's TV show, indicates that it's probably Shia LaBeouf. It could also be Logan Lerman, who worked on Fury, but I find that rather unlikely.

Lady Leaves said...

Spielberg?

Unknown said...

If this is Shia, I swear Hollywood can burn to the ground. God bless him. I pray for his courage and safety.

Sun Spirit said...

I thought of Elliot or his brother from E.T. As for the producer I'd say Spielberg

Serena Rodriguez said...

Yeah, but he’s a known as a director, not a producer. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The only name I can think of is Hailey Joel Osment. But I don’t think he’s that big of a Star these days.

molly said...

Spielberg has been named so many times, he must have protection from high high up. Like Oprah...she hangs out with others of her ilk..have watched her close friend , Gayle King interview on her morning show. Twice she interviewed victims of pedophilia and treated them like they were in the wrong. So obvious.These people are protected for now......am looking any day for Gayle King to move on. She was so hurt when Charlie Rose went down...her good buddy..she had to call Oprah for consolation.She interviewed R. Kelley today and was different ...watch for him to go to jail..black with rough edges..not their type.

Drag Them said...

I loved hearing Gayle King, say in her best counselor voice “Robert, Robert” as R Kelly was melting down.I was Waitiing for him to knock her chair over.as he was shouting and melting down. Definetly going to be the next viral GIF. Oprah and Gayle and their better then you attitude ugh. Hate how she controls the strings of Dr Oz show. The replay of Jussie Smolett painting him as an activist...

BRAD PITT said...

Jonathan Demme signed the Polanski petition

BRAD PITT said...

The public thinks I’m mentally unstable

I'm 100% certain coning forward will ruin my career

working with Brad Pitt was the best experience of my life. He’s a solid human being

I’m a celebrity who people hate

there hadn't been haven't been any rumors about my abuser

I’ve had many public meltdowns in the tabloids

totaji said...

I highly doubt this is Shia. This guy is worried about his image. Shia clearly doesn’t give a fuck. Has anyone heard the urban legend that Shia is actually performance artist? Shia is a character that an actor is playing out in the public eye.

BRAD PITT said...

"This guy, he's like Michael Jackson, i feel people wouldn't believe it no matter what"

as famous as Michael Jackson was

people will never believe it

movie producer working today = Steven Spielberg

BRAD PITT said...


my abuser helped me build my career = shia spielberg

The abuse happened on a film set = disturbia

He helped me build a really successful career = transformers , crystal skull

I was diagnosed with BPD = shia

MattDaddy said...

The name of a beloved producer that popped into my head was George Lucas. He's got millions of producer credits, but none that fit Shia at the age mentioned.

Fun fact: one of Shia's earliest film credits was about Albert Einstein's brain being transferred into a dog and one of the producers was Priscilla Presley. Weird.

hunter said...

Totally agree this is Shia.

If him being "concerned about his image" were a reason not to post on reddit he never would have had those public meltdowns. Good for him posting that.

Depeche Model said...

I feel terribly for this person but did he really call the reddit community INTELLIGENT?

WTF? It's a collection of unemployed retards who spend their days typing angry shite about Trump. It's exactly like D-listed, just without the gifs.

If this is Shia, it would have had to happen during Even Stevens.

He was older during Disturbia.

Shia LaBeouf during Holes?

Holes...

SMH

Nick Rivers said...

Not Holes. He was 16-17 during that one.

Stay safe and be courageous. I am praying for you.

J-Mo said...

Weird. I was just reading about Shia last night. Sorry, but what does AMA mean please?

Nick Rivers said...

@Depeche Model, there are definitely subreddits filled with garbage people spouting garbage things, but there are some subreddits filled with intelligent discourse. And some that are just funny as fuck. Like any website. You follow what you want to follow, and if all you're looking for is the angry shite about Trump, that's all you'll find. But there's a lot more to it than just that specific type of trope.

@J-Mo, an AMA is an "Ask Me Anything". I'm not sure why he was posting there except to maybe test the waters of the types of questions he would get from people. I get that he's itching to tell all, and clearly has a lot he wants to get off his chest, but posting in an AMA is a strange way to go about it when he evidently needs to maintain anonymity.

Depeche Model said...

@Nick Rivers - I don't frequent reddit because of the reasons I wrote, but I'm open to have my mind changed. Where can these hilariously intelligent redditers be found then?

Nick Rivers said...

@Depeche Model - Just because I'm a huge fan of the site and presume you're being halfway serious... well, definitely stay away from the /r/Politics subreddit, of course. But you'll sometimes find interesting stuff in /r/AskReddit, /r/History, /r/Science, /r/ArtisanVideos, /r/bestoflegaladvice, /r/interestingasfuck, /r/movies, /r/todayilearned, to name a few. Any sort of hobby-specific ones like baseball, football, woodworking, fiber arts, cooking, hiking, fishing, crafting hobbies all have their own too, with passionate participants. You'll find shit in all of these to a degree, but some are moderated better than others. (No, I don't work or volunteer there.)

Tierney said...

Reddit is completely customizable (using RES, you can filter in -or out- any subreddits you wish). If you find crap there, it's because you're looking for it. The only thing I'll say against Reddit is that they've been censoring out a LOT of the more questionable content which is proving to be a slippery slope. It doesn't change the fact that Reddit still is one of the most valuable resources available anywhere.

Unknown said...

Do you all remember Project Greenlight on HBO and then Bravo? I loved it - first time filmmakers going through a reality process to make a movie. Four seasons. The contestants would submit a script, they'd interview them, go through a bunch of stuff and then fund the film, help the get real actors, etc.

Second season two was a movie called the Battle for Shaker Heights that was released in 2003 but filmed over 2001/2002. The young star of Battle for Shaker Heights? Shia. It was his second film project (his first was a Christmas cheeseball movie shot in 1997, released 1998 - he was 11 during filming). This puts him at 15 during the filming.

Lots of producers around that production b/c it was a TV SHOW and a MOVIE. But the movie and the show have two producers in common - Affleck and Damon. It was crazy with two productions going on.

SHOW: Alex Keledjian, developed by Eli Holzman and produced by Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Sean Bailey, and Chris Moore through their production company.

MOVIE: Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Could this be it?

BRAD PITT said...

ben affleck is an oscar winning producer ARGO

his booze meltdown seems to have happened post #MeToo

is Ben dreading the day someone comes forward ?

his Mallrats character was an anal abuser and Ben was very very convincing in that role
