“Sex and the City” Gilles Marini and Hollywood Sex Abuse

Here’s another story that came out recently about sexual abuse in Hollywood, with men.

Gilles Marini, who played Samantha Jones’ boy toy in the 2008 Sex and the City film, has opened up about his experiences with Hollywood execs in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
“I was approached by extremely powerful people,” he tells People“I became a piece of meat for many executives in Hollywood.”

The Problems With the Movie “Call Me By Your Name” 

I haven’t been thrilled with the way they’ve been promoting the movie, “Call Me By Your Name,” as a gay romance. But this article takes it even further by tackling something completely different. It’s not the first time I’ve seen people discussing this either.

“Call Me By Your Name” is a film about the “forbidden” romance between a closeted seventeen year old boy and a twenty-four year old man. Based on the book of the same name, the movie portrays a relationship in which the older adult clearly knows that what he’s doing is wrong, yet he still starts a romantic and sexual relationship with a high-school aged teenager.

Bette Midler On Hocus Pocus Remake

Midler doesn’t sound too thrilled about the remake of Hocus Pocus. I don’t know anything about it and I didn’t even know they were doing a remake.  

In any event…

Asked about the remake at her annual New York Restoration Project’s Hulaween party, Midler didn’t mince words, saying the TV movie would be “cheap.”
“I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap!” she told People magazine. “I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”

Here’s the rest. I think we should wait and see before we judge. 

Gay Instagrammer Supports Trump and Wears Blackface

Here we go again. You really do have to wonder about the kind of person who does something like this, and how badly they need attention.

This year for Halloween, Crane decided to dress up as Storm from X-Men. NBD, right? Wrong. His costume was complete with Storm’s signature shock of white hair, her yellow cape, and… her dark skin.

Not surprisingly, people weren’t so into a white dude wearing blackface for Halloween. They immediately began calling out Crane’s costume choice. (If you really need a lesson on the deeply racist history of blackface, here’s a start.)

Check this out here. I really couldn’t care less about his politics, but the blackface crosses the line.
