Blind Items Revealed #4

April 9, 2019

What A list showrunner/director/writer who openly claims to have 'fallen into the trappings" of being famous and approached by women is anything BUT a hapless victim? If you think casting couching talent and telling at least one writer "You need to screw me to get your script read" is 'affairs" then he needs to look up the definition of consensual adults and mutual sex. Maybe the wife who publicly called him out already knows that the geek turned Hollywood heavy is a liar on more than one front....

Joss Whedon

As always with Male feminists - these Betas are pure hypocrites

After reading the script, Dushku rushed to a local Claire's to purchase dark makeup and other appropriate accessories for the part,[17] Faith on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When she began her work on that series, Dushku was still a minor, and had to receive emancipation to work the production's long hours. She later recalled with amusement that the judge who handled her emancipation case, who was an avid fan of that show, jokingly said that she would sign the emancipation order if she could get a signed photo from Dushku.[11]

If his pic is any indication he would have to have something I desperately wanted to get me to even hang out with him much less hit the couch.

Never understood the Whedon hype.

Reminds me of Cher wanting open immigration, but not to her town.

Another virtue-signaling phony.

Whedon is your typical poor kid, geek boy who now has some power & is getting back at the hot girls who never looked at him in HS.

Trolls leave politcis out of this, this a gossip site. We DONT CARE!!! Go back to the DM & your multiple sock accts.

Buffy, Angel, Firefly and the first Avengers movie really were outstanding achievements in writing and proved he has/had tremendous talent. Doesn't make him a good person or anything, but I still love those.
I have learned to pretty much separate the art from the artist. If you can't do that, it's going to be tough to enjoy a lot of great entertainment.

Vita said...

Huckleberry-- Agreed, great shows/ movies. it's just got to be case by case, each to his/her own judgment (unless laws are broken). We cant judge everything by its creator, there might be nothing left. Perhaps the works and achievements are a bit of saving grace from otherwise troubled souls.

Leslie said...

Who can forget, Dollhouse? A totally forgettable Whedon series that reeked of MK Ultra & sex abuse.

Lucky13 said...

Eh, I never liked anything he wrote/had a hand in, anyway.

Love how male feminists are apparently "virtue-signaling cucks" to the alt-right crowd who'd rather women either stay in the kitchen or live for nothing but creating babies, though.

If someone trades sex for favors, it's consensual - unless one party is underage.

Ubervation said...

@ Lucky , Stop ranting& whining about the alt right..... he has called himself a "male feminist" in interviews & he clearly is a hypocrite as he has cheated on his wife and made actresses use the casting couch ---- FACTS
Facts don't care about your feelings!

I loved Buffy back in the day but I rewatched it the last time it was on Netflix. Cringe. His shows are horribly written, but he has tapped into the heroine genre that teen girls have needed and says what "the enlightened" want to hear so people overlook the garbage and squawk, "but...but he's a FEMINIST!"

Brayson87 said...

@Huckleberry, You should really check which of your favorite episodes of each show that Whedon actually directed or wrote. On Firefly Tim Minear was the real talent.

I wonder when that 'click' occurs and one acquiesces to power.

@cheesegrater15. Really? I actually think Buffy is a classic, period. It all sorts of rites of passage for girls/women in it WHILE someone happened to be fighting crime. IF You think of when it was done vs today's era of Hulu, Netflix etc, it is quite genius. I"m a writer and I think it is incredibly well done.

That being said, being fascinated by the strong female archetype is different than actually revering or respecting it. Maybe he wanted to control the very thing that controlled him. Supposedly though his WONDER WOMAN draft was piece of junk - exploitative garbage with unnecessary T&A. I guess posers in loving women being women can only go so far before they expose themselves somehow.

These stories often remind me of the Chris Rock bit where he says something like, "Ladies, your man is only as faithful as his options."
Disappointed but not shocked to hear it, because Firefly is amazingly good, and I enjoy the Buffyverse too.

This makes me sad. I had the pleasure (and it was a pleasure) of meeting Joss and talking Marvel with him at a premiere here. He was down to earth, lovely, and really did his best to make me feel at ease - probably my favourite meeting with someone I look up to.

But now I've read about all this stuff and it's completely tarnished it for me. I feel let down, but at the same time I don't know why I expected better.
