Disgraced actress Lindsay Lohan has a new reality show coming out on MTV, so she’s been making the headlines recently, and of course she’s been saying dumb sh*t.
In a recent interviewwith British publication The Times, the 32-year-old former actress spoke about the #MeToo movement.
“Look, I am very supportive of women. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways. If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment. You make it a real thing by making it a police report. I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.”
Wait, what? Speaking out against sexual assault makes women look weak? HUH? Does she want them to just “walk it off” like they got hit in the back with a baseball? And does she also think people who speak out against racism or corrupt officials are weak? Should we all just keep everything inside because feelings and thoughts make people look weak?
Honestly. It’s not surprising Lohan thinks this way. You may remember that she actually defended Harvey Weinstein following the numerous sexual assault charges against him…
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong. So, stand up.”
Wow. Great point. You know what…Harvey’s never touched me either. HE MUST BE A GREAT GUY IF HE’S NEVER DONE ANYTHING TO ME PERSONALLY!
Also, the Golden State Killer didn’t murder me, so I think everyone should leave him alone too. Same goes with Hitler. In fact, I’ve never been murdered, so let’s release all murderers from prison!
December 2017 will probably be a month to forget for Matt Damon. His new film, Downsizing, is getting (at best) mixed reviews from critics, his previous film Suburbicon got slammed by critics and failed at the box office, and now he’s getting slammed by women around the world for his comments on sexual abuse in Hollywood.
During an interview with ABC News last week, Damon told Peter Travers…
“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”
He also defended Louis C.K. during his interview, and that did not sit well with a lot of people. Actress Minnie Driver, who dated Damon in the late 1990s, spoke to The Guardian recently and slammed Damon for his comments.
“I’ve realized that most men, good men, the men that I love, there is a cut-off in their ability to understand. They simply cannot understand what abuse is like on a daily level. I honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can’t tell a woman about their abuse. A man cannot do that. No one can. It is so individual and so personal, it’s galling when a powerful man steps up and starts dictating the terms, whether he intends it or not.”
And that’s a pretty fair response. I don’t think what Damon said was particularly harsh or insensitive, but it’s like…why? Why did he even comment on it? It’s time we sit back as men and just listen for a bit. Take some notes and try to learn.
Kevin Smith’s career will be linked to Harvey Weinstein forever. He has worked with the producer for over a decade, and most of Smith’s early work (Clerks, Mall Rats, Dogma, etc) was produced by Miramax and The Weinstein Co.
So when the sexual assault allegations came raining down on Weinstein, Smith was shocked, confused and incredibly disappointed. He didn’t know how to handle the situation.
Smith addressed the issue on his most recent podcast episode of Hollywood Babble-On. He revealed that he’s going to donate all future-residuals from his Weinstein-backed films to the non-profit Women in Film, which advocates for the advancement of women in the industry.
“My entire career is tied up with the man. It’s been a weird f–king week. I just wanted to make some f–king movies, that’s it. That’s why I came, that’s why I made Clerk. No f–king movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, f–k it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really f–king horrible. I’m not looking for sympathy. I know it’s not my fault, but I didn’t f–king help. I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend, like he was my father and s–t like that.”
You can tell by the emotion in his voice that he really was hurt by this. I mean, it’s easy to reply to all this with, “Well, how the hell did he not know?”
But the truth is, we don’t know how much anyone knew. There were clearly people who knew about Weinstein’s behavior, and there were some people out there who knew a few people had complained about him, but they didn’t realize the allegations were this serious. Smith could be in that second group.
At least he’s doing the right thing now. Much respect.
We knew Lindsay Lohan lost her mind several years ago, but we were under the impression she found it recently, but I guess we were getting #FakeNews.
Lohan posted two Instagram Story videos on Tuesday defending Harvey Weinstein following his sexual assault scandal. Multiple women have come forward revealing their disturbing experiences with Weinstein. At least two women have said Weinstein cornered them and forced them to watch him masturbate.
But apparently, Lohan doesn’t believe it. While speaking in a bizarre accent, Lohan said she feels very bad for the 65-year-old film producer…
“Hi! I’m in Dubai. I’m home and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband. He’s never harmed me or did anything to me — we’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop — I think it’s wrong. So stand up.”
What is going on here? Well, either Lohan is truly stupid and doesn’t understand how Harvey could assault dozens of women while also being nice and respectful toward her, or she was assaulted by Harvey herself when she was younger and is too damaged to speak out.
Which one is it? No idea. By the way, she did delete the videos before their 24 hours were up, so maybe she was just drunk.
