There are lots of, lots of child actors passed away so young, my favorite was Brad Renfro kid was a great talent both for acting and blues guitar. Hollywood is chewing souls especially those who are young surely they have mistakes too.

Multiple allegations against Kevin Spacey...

Kevin Spacey: More allegations of sexual harassment surface

New allegations have emerged from a number of men accusing Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct.

US filmmaker Tony Montana claims he was groped by the actor in a Los Angeles bar in 2003. Montana says he was left with PTSD for six months after he claims Spacey "forcefully" grabbed his crotch.
It follows an allegation made by Anthony Rapp that the House of Cards actor tried to "seduce" him when he was 14 years old.
Kevin Spacey says he has no recollection of that encounter, and was "beyond horrified".

Film director Montana told Radar Online that he was in his thirties when the incident took place at the Coronet Bar in LA.
He says he removed Spacey's hand from his crotch and walked away, but claims the actor later followed him into the men's toilets.

'Routinely preyed'
Incidents regarding Spacey are also alleged to have taken place in the UK while the two-time Oscar winner was the artistic director at the Old Vic in London between 2004 and 2015.
Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos, who acted in several plays at the theatre, claims Spacey "routinely preyed" on young male actors.
"It seems the only requirement was to be a male under the age of 30 for Mr Spacey to feel free to touch us," he wrote in a Facebook post.

About Feldman, if he "can name 6 names right now", why won't he? Because he's making a movie about it ("with your donations") and will release them then. Meanwhile, if he's right, one or more of those 6 may offend again before being ousted. That's not right, and it's not righteous. Name them yesterday.

and because of that, we now have this....


Hollywood actors speak of 'rampant' problem of male abusers targeting men


Speaking out in the wake of an allegation of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey, male actors say abuse against boys and young men is ‘taboo’ but ‘pervasive’

Hollywood has a “rampant” and “pervasive” problem of men sexually abusing boys and young men, according to actors and lawyers who are speaking up about misconduct and harassment in the wake of an allegation against actor Kevin Spacey.

“It’s a very taboo subject,” said Alex Winter, an actor and director who said he was sexually abused as a pre-teen child actor. “I don’t know of any boys in any pocket of the entertainment industry that do not encounter some form of predatory behavior. … It’s really not a safe environment.”

Spacey has been accused of making an unwanted sexual advance toward Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp, who says he was 14 years old at the time of the alleged incident in 1986. According to Rapp, Spacey, who was 26 at the time, lay on top of him and tried to “seduce” him.

------------------

“It’s a pervasive problem in Hollywood,” said Los Angeles attorney Toni Jaramilla, who has represented men in the entertainment industry in sexual harassment cases. She said that men can be coerced into sex or assaulted in professional contexts and are often afraid to speak out: “The common challenge is the fear of not being believed and the fear of having the situation turned around against them, to suggest that they are instigating it, or they are finding opportunities to sleep their way into a role.”

The sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey span decades. Here’s what we know.

As sexual harassment and assault allegations against a number of powerful men continue to ricochet around Hollywood (as well as other industries), perhaps the most familiar name on the list of men accused of sexual assault is that of Kevin Spacey, a two-time Oscar winner, decorated Broadway and theater vet, and the (now former) star of Netflix’s House of Cards.

Since October 29, when BuzzFeed published allegations made by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey made a sexual advance toward Rapp when Rapp was 14, at least eight more men have come forward with their own allegations against Spacey, with accounts ranging from harassment to attempted rape.

The allegations have brought about a flood of damage control from Hollywood companies seeking to distance themselves from the actor. Netflix, Spacey’s agent, his publicist, and the industry at large have all backed away from him.

Here’s what we know so far about the allegations that have surfaced against Spacey, and the fallout that’s ensued.

So 8 men have come out against Spacey now.

Ed Westwick accused of second count of rape

A second woman has come forward to accuse Ed Westwick of rape.

The former 'Gossip Girl' actor was accused earlier this week of having sexually assaulted Kristina Cohen at his home three years ago, and her confession has inspired Aurélie Wynn - who was previously known by her stage name Aurelie Marie Cao before giving up acting - to come forward with her own accusation.

Charlie Sheen denies sexually assaulting Corey Haim.

In a National Enquirer report, the former Two and a Half Men star was accused by Haim's longtime friend, Dominick Brascia, of sexually assaulting Haim on set of the 1986 film Lucas. Sheen would have been 19 at the time of the alleged assault, while Haim would have been 13.

"Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations," Sheen's rep said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.

ET has reached out to Sheen's rep and attorney for comment.

Kevin Spacey just got fired from Ridley Scott's new movie, a month before its release

Ridley Scott will completely remove Kevin Spacey from his upcoming biopic thriller All the Money in the World — with less than two months to go until the movie’s scheduled December 22 release.

According to Deadline, which first reported the news, Christopher Plummer will replace Spacey in the film’s most prominent supporting role. Scott’s drastic choice to cut Spacey from the movie will put it at risk of missing its December 22 release date, thus jeopardizing its Oscar eligibility.

The news follows a wave of sexual assault allegations made against Spacey by over a dozen people, including multiple accusations of assault on underage victims.

Based on a true story, All the Money in the World details the harrowing 1973 kidnapping of J. Paul Getty’s 16-year-old grandson, J. Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer, no relation), and Getty’s refusal to comply with the kidnappers’ demands. Spacey was set to play the the elder Getty, and the decision to reshoot his role entirely, especially so close to the film’s release date, is extremely unprecedented.

In the comments :

I am a 19 year old stand up comedian in college right now. Louis CK was the first comedian I ever really watched, and he was what made me want to do stand up when I started in high school. I had heard about rumors before, but I always pushed them to the back of my mind because Louis CK was my favorite, my idol and everything I wanted to be and the thought of him doing anything unsavory or abusive seemed weird and surreal and just awful. I don't know what to do. Never watch him again? Stop laughing at his jokes? Should I be angry, sad, what? I feel sick, both because of what he did and the mebtal gymnastics I did to make me think he wasn't capable of something like that. This is like finding out that Santa Claus is a serial killer, or that Head and Shoulders shampoo is made from kitten bones or something. Now I know how the 1919 White Sox fans felt..."Say it ain't so, Louie."

What amazes me is that these people don't appear to give any thought to the possibility of word of their behaviour getting out. Stupid, or just massively divorced from reality? I suppose it has taken decades for some of it to surface, so probably complacency.

Maybe Hollywood works like the mafia, you can't advance until they have enough dirt on you to hold against you as a safeguard.

In such an environment whistle-blowers are blacklisted. I'm sure in the old days "open your mouth and you'll never work in this industry again" was a very real threat. Well, except that opening your mouth was often a requirement.
