On the night of Jan. 25, 2015, Emile Hirsch settled into a VIP booth at Tao, a pop-up nightclub situated at the base of Main Street in the mountains of Park City, Utah. Several hours—and drinks—later, eyewitnesses say that two people had to physically pull the then 29-year-old actor off a female film executive whom he’d choked unconscious. The occasion, as it were, was the Sundance Film Festival, an annual showcase of the year’s best independent cinema offerings. Over the years, it’s hosted the debuts of Blood Simple, Sex, Lies, and Videotape, Reservoir Dogs, The Usual Suspects, Whiplash, and Get Out, among others, launching the directorial careers of everyone from the Coens and Soderbergh to Tarantino and Peele. In the eyes of many aspiring actresses, however, it’s seen as something far more sinister: the hunting ground of Harvey Weinstein, who is alleged to have assaulted several women during the fest, including Rose McGowan. Hirsch, the star of … [Read more...] about Emile Hirsch Brutally Assaulted a Female Film Executive. He’s Now Starring in the New Tarantino Film.

In December 2012, Fox News aired a video that would briefly obsess the conservative blogosphere. At a Right to Work rally in Michigan, one of Fox’s young contributors was punched in the face by a union member. It was evidence, a parade of Fox pundits stressed, of “union thuggery.” On Fox and Friends, anchor Steve Doocy wondered what his colleague had done “that so provoked the left.” But an extended version of the video, aired ironically on Fox News’ Hannity, revealed that the original clip had been edited, removing footage of the puncher being pushed to the ground prior to throwing a punch in return. A Michigan county prosecutor refused to press charges, determining that the full video showed the union member acted in self-defense. **** Steven Crowder is always playing defense. Whether it’s against "union thugs” in Michigan, anonymous liberals on Twitter, or, most recently, his now-former employer Fox News, Crowder has had his guard up … [Read more...] about The Unmaking of a Conservative Pundit
The intentions of Fantastic Lies, ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary look at the Duke University lacrosse scandal, aren’t explicitly clear from its opening moments, when the mother of one of the three white student-athletes accused of raping a young black woman at a 2006 house party declares that this will be the last time she talks about the case that captured national attention and devastated more than a few lives a decade ago. It may be the last time she and others involved want to rehash the eyebrow-raising circumstances that begat the Duke scandal—which yielded no evidence of said rape, but certainly exposed revealing outbursts of racism and misogyny among Duke’s BMOC lacrosse stars. Fantastic Lies, paced like a true crime thriller and directed by Marina Zenovich (Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired), has other designs. The 103-minute documentary makes its broadcast debut March 13th on ESPN—exactly ten years after the night in question—following its … [Read more...] about The Stripper Who Cried ‘Rape’: Revisiting the Duke Lacrosse Case Ten Years Later
On TV Emmy Rossum plays a ballsy, complicated broad unafraid to stare down the establishment and fight for every scrap she and her family need to survive. Eight seasons into playing Fiona Gallagher on Shameless, and Rossum is equally uncompromising when it comes to taking what she deserves. Rossum made headlines in late 2016 after refusing to sign on for the Showtime dramedy’s eighth season unless she was offered more than her co-star William H. Macy—a move meant not only to create parity, but also to make up for the seven years Rossum was paid significantly less. The “standoff,” as reports took to calling it, lasted only days after becoming public. (“It was a quick resolution,” Rossum, who has chosen not to disclose the details of her new contract, told The Hollywood Reporter in May.) The news came amid heated conversations about equal pay in Hollywood sparked by women including Jennifer Lawrence, Gillian Anderson, Patricia Arquette, and Robin … [Read more...] about Emmy Rossum on Her Historic ‘Shameless’ Equal Pay Win: ‘It’s Our Responsibility’
