Meryl Streep and her more than 30 seconds at Golden Globes 2017
The Harvey Frankenstein Sex Scandals has blown open the doors of Hollywood’s finest actors and actresses coming out of the shadows to share their stories. If anything good came from Harvey Weinstein’s disgusting criminal behavior it is that molesters and rapists are being identified from Hollywood elites to a candidate running for the Senate; Roy Moore, who has been accused of being a pedophile violating a young adolescent girl at fourteen. This woman told her story with courage and a broken heart when she was violated at fourteen in the woods. Only for the perpetrators has this hit them with a ton of bricks, startling their insistent denials.
Anthony Edwards who played one of the most popular doctors in the ER TV series has written an emotional essay in which he alleges that writer-producer Gary Goddard molested him and raped his friend in a pattern of abuse that “went on for years.”
While Charlie Sheen has denied he raped late child star Corey Haim some 30 years ago on the set of “Lucas”. Denise Richards in her divorce decree said she found very disturbing pornographic pictures of young boys on Charlie Sheen’s computer.
Comedian Actor Louis C.K. has been accused by five women who say he acted inappropriately to masturbating in front of them. Comedy duo, Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov alleged that in 2002, C.K. exposed himself to them after inviting them to hang out in his hotel room.
One popular director has stated that this is just the beginning of what is to come from the Hollywood entertainment business. Needless to say Louis C.K. has been dropped from pending movie projects as Kevin Spacey’s show has been canceled and he is being replaced for the current role in an upcoming film.
October 30, 2017. During last week and through the weekend, Hollywood continues to expose the worst crimes including rape and pedophilia. More actresses are coming out with their personal stories of being sexually molested or raped by Harvey Weinstein’s evil persona. The mask he wore and the facade he created to the public eye and beneath it a monster of the worst kind. When I read Annabella Sciorra’s horrific story of being raped by Harvey Weinstein, it hit me the hardest because she was having a seizure of some kind after the brutality of this monster violating her. It was a terrible brutal experience and Annabella went on to have a successful acting career with a broken wing still reaching the heights of her dreams with her inimitable wonderful talent. How she did it? I wouldn’t even pretend to know. All I can say is Harvey Weinstein is a Monster and needs to go to prison!
Tall blonde beautiful Daryl Hannah twice escaped from Harvey Weinstein’s monstrous brutal grip. Daryl met Harvey at the Cannes Film Festival. They exchanged phone numbers for a possible business meeting in the States. She ignored his phone calls in her hotel room. Maybe Daryl already knew about his reputation in Hollywood circles. He was incessant as she described it, pounding on her hotel room door. Daryl left the room through an exterior door and slept in her makeup artist’s room but Harvey returned the next morning. “We” pushed a dresser in front of the door and they huddled in the room. When Daryl encountered Weinstein in her hotel room again, he had a key and he came through the living room and into the bedroom. “He just burst in like a raging bull.” Daryl said. “And I know with every fiber of my being that if my male makeup artist hadn’t been there, things would not have gone well. It was scary.”
Luckily, my story didn’t come that close. I love movies, stories, characters and acting. I worked in Hollywood and in the Los Angeles metropolitan area as an Oracle Database Consultant and at night I took acting classes. There was one particular class right off of the Hollywood Blvd. The building was clean and it looked reputable. One night, a movie director was invited to watch our individual monologues. Of course, most of us were excited and thinking, “This could be my big chance!” After class the movie director asked me if I could give him a ride home. Yes, he flagged my instincts immediately. He explained that a friend had dropped him off at our class because his car was in the repair shop. I looked him directly in the eyes and asked “Where do you live?” He told me and then I said to him, still looking him directly in the eyes, “I’m not going that way!” He walked away.
Needless to say I never went back to that acting class. I will say that the business of Hollywood and trying to make a career in acting isn’t easy, for anyone. It’s extremely competitive and you don’t always have great experiences. But on the flip side, there are those genuine people who you do meet and learn a lot from. I had a favorite acting coach and she taught me the most about acting. She was extremely smart and she challenged each of us to understand a character’s virtues as well as vices and apply that knowledge to our scenes.
Famous actor Kevin Spacey, best known for the Francis Underwood character in the House of Cards, was accused of raping a 14 year old boy. It appears Spacey was in his mid twenties at the time. Spacey came out and said he has lived as a gay man for most of his life and he apologized to the victim, saying he didn’t remember the incident because apparently he was drunk and he blacked out. But that young actor, at 14, can never erase or black out a lifetime memory of being sexually assaulted. Eight current and former employees of the Netflix TV show “House of Cards,” who were not identified, also have accused Spacey, the star of the show, of sexual misconduct.
The Hollywood seismic fallout from decades of movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s sex crimes, preying upon young aspiring actresses, has been a huge blow to the Hollywood community and entertainment business. There were hundreds, maybe thousandths, in the movie business including very reputable movie actors and actresses who knew and said nothing about this dirty secret that could have prevented other women from being victimized. No one said anything against the movie mogul to protect their self interests and movie careers.
Meanwhile, the movie mogul continued to prey upon these young women who wanted a decent chance to start their career. And Mr. Weinstein caught on camera could only say, “Everyone deserves a second chance” referring to himself with no compassion or empathy for ruining these women’s lives and careers.
Every person who knew Harvey Weinstein was a molester, groper and rapist was complicit in this horrible degrading case of sex crimes.
Comparatively, the Catholic Church protected and relocated thousandths of priests who raped altar boys for decades. Many of these priests were never tried, convicted or sent to prison. Instead, they were relocated to live a comfortable retired life.
The movie actor Bill Cosby drugged and raped hundreds of women. But the statute of limitations prevented any of these women from going further and seeking legal ramifications against the actor. Instead, he sits in a beautiful home, retired and well taken care of.
In order for victims, women who went through a horrific ordeal to pursue criminal charges against their perpetrators and/or rapists, depends on the statute of limitations and where the sex crime was committed; in what state. Because of the prevalence of this kind of criminal behavior, it begs the question, ”Isn’t it time to change the statute of limitations on sex crimes in all states?” The statute of limitations is only protecting the perpetrators, molesters, gropers and rapists!
Up until now, many in Hollywood were castigating their opinions of President Trump and ignoring the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s pattern of behavior against the Constitution, Federal laws Title 18-793f and the Charity Fraud Solicitation Law which Hillary Clinton violated. Many in Hollywood were openly supporting Hillary and her pattern of behavior, while decidedly remaining very quiet about Harvey Weinstein groping and raping young women. Everyone in Hollywood is less than six degrees of separation. Harvey Weinstein was very good friends with Hillary Clinton and donated millions to her and Obama’s campaigns. Meryl Streep openly campaigned and supported Hillary and just adored Harvey Weinstein, like all the Hollywood community.
But Hollywood has other problems that have grown to be even more superficial and discriminating. It’s not often you see different ethnic actors or actresses on commercials. Watch commercials on television and see for yourself.
The very same thing applies to the actresses in Hollywood, who are most of the time given more opportunities because they’re Caucasian, rail thin and most have undergone some form of plastic surgery to change and give the appearance of being youthful. And even then, the older actresses who are given more opportunities are English actresses like Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Kristin Scott Thomas, etc.
Meryl Streep certainly had more than her 30 seconds to share with her audience at the Golden Globes 2017. She talked about her privilege. Her privilege to be white and enamored by the Hollywood industry which has given her so many doors of opportunity. I say you can’t pretend to support the Hispanic (Spain), Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Venezuelan, Brazilian population when Hollywood moguls, studios and celebrities rarely offer a role to those people. It’s hypocritical. Don’t let rich celebrities and Hollywood moguls in this business fool you that they represent the human rights of others. If they did, more diversity in leading roles would exist and show on screen.
Most of the rich opposition against our President is using the ethnicity of others and their citizenship status to influence you to continue to support the alt-left, deep state, the violence of Antifa and MSM who won’t talk about the deep seated corruption. Democrats like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi only care about 11 million votes from Mexico because they are now trying to hold on to those votes for Democratic elections; the Democratic party is disintegrating in this insidious corruption. How unfortunate for us as Americans. Oh, it’s hurting every one of us as we witness almost daily new exposures of corruption like former President Obama wiretapping and unmasking private phone conversations and meetings conducted at the Trump Tower starting in June, 2015 through the election on November 8, 2016. There’s a whole scandal brewing and surfacing right now. The Obama administration’s staff and cabinet secretaries requesting FISA warrants to wiretap.
The rich elites, mainstream media, some Congressmen and Senators, whether Republican or Democrat, George Soros (remember that name), who have funded in one way or another all the hatred and opposition we witness at random universities, protests and other public venues. The alt-left, deep state, Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, a Republican in name only, have all been helped by George Soros donating large amounts of money to the Democratic Party and their individual causes. The Democrat’s underlying objective is only to secure 11 million votes for Democratic elections.
Meryl made it very clear that she is the white nightingale that will support the press and the mainstream media who thoroughly and utterly supported the Democratic nominee who lost to the American people who voted for President Trump. These people from all walks of life, different ethnicities made up 66 to 80% who didn’t trust the Democratic nominee for more than obvious reasons.
I was happy to observe that Meryl’s audience included many Black American actors and one Muslim. But no Spanish, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Venezuelan, Brazilian and Filipino ethnicities; that was disappointing.
There was an undertone of waging a war against President Trump and joining mainstream media. Some of the Democratic party, rich elites and celebrities have no idea what the 99.9% Americans live with and struggle with day to day.
But thanks to cell phones which have turned some people into videographers. That camera inside iPhones or Androids filming everything and anything. I wonder about the long term side effects for the movie industry and actors. Independent films from independent directors, cinematographers and producers will offer more roles to a wider ethnic pool of actors and actresses.
Just last year, the Academy Awards was boycotted by some actors, actresses and people from the movie industry. People were very disappointed that movies with other ethnic backgrounds weren’t selected for at least one nomination. Variety had a featured article on this fact. Chris Rock at last year’s Academy Awards made it his comedy theme throughout the entire show.
Netflix and Amazon have become great competitors to the film industry. Soon videographers and small independent films will have an opportunity to be on Netflix and Amazon and don’t have to have the Hollywood ties and standards of movie studios and moguls to support and produce an independent film covering a wider social demographic and ethnic background.
The real irony is Hollywood moguls, the movie industry and rich celebrities, who gave their support to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, are those who contribute to the prejudice in the Hollywood movie industry. So you have people who are outraged about illegal immigration laws being enforced and yet these very same people in the movie industry didn’t offer an opportunity for an actor or actress of Hispanic (Spain), Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Venezuelan, Brazilian or Filipino descent to play an interesting role. That person who didn’t fit the prefabricated rules of being young, thin, white, plastic surgery, botox injections, and so on and so forth.
By the same token, mainstream media is now competing with social media writers and commentators. It is a fact that mainstream media is very biased and didn’t cover nominee Hillary Clinton’s premeditated pattern of illegal behavior. Who was involved in ‘pay-for-play’ schemes; raising money from United States adversary countries donating to the Clinton Foundation for her influence, power and favors for money. As a matter of fact, the New York Attorney General investigated President-elect Trump’s charity foundation and has never addressed the Clinton Foundation and those 1,100 foreign donations.
Natswritings.com along with Judicial Watch, Project Veritas Action, the Daily Caller, Circa News and a few others are among the small pool of writers that were willing to address and talk about this very significant pattern of behavior; where Hillary Clinton exposed SCI top secret national security documents through unsecured private e-mail servers.
It’s an evolving, dramatically changing world. But the best part of it, we can communicate our thoughts, feelings, creativity and talent through social media. And we can also inform ourselves which is the most important. ~ Natalie at Natswritings.com
