So I guess, for the media, this is literally going to be a “game” of exposing one Hollywood “open secret” every day! Where were they when some of these actors and actresses went public with this stuff ages ago? I guess everyone wants to hop on a “trend,” huh?
Latest “open secret” is director Brett Ratner, the subject of a blistering article in the LA Times. Six women, including actresses Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn, accuse Ratner of various acts of sexual harassment.
Henstridge’s story in particular, in which she alleges Ratner forced her to give him oral sex, sounds a bit more like sexual assault or even rape—though I “get” legally why calling that act rape is being avoided by the LA Times article and the media.
“He strong-armed me in a real way. He physically forced himself on me…At some point, I gave in and he did his thing.”
…kinda sounds like rape.
Olivia Munn has been calling out Ratner for years, but mostly to deaf ears and derision. She recounted her tales of alleged run-ins with Ratner, which included him masturbating to completion in front of her—which seems, from all these recent scandal stories, like a go-to for a number of pudgy abusive directors/producers/comedians etc.
Ratner is best-known for directing the “Rush Hour” movies, as well as X-Men: The Last Stand. Even hard-bitten red-pilled fanboys at this very hour seem willing to throw Ratner under the bus for fucking up the X-Men film; that’s how bad that damn movie was.
He is also part of the production company RatPac, which has a sweet deal with Warner Bros.—financing such movies as IT, Wonder Woman, and the upcoming Justice League.
Warner Bros. put out a statement today in response to the recent allegations against Ratner, saying they are “reviewing the situation.”
As for Ratner’s own response to all this—he has retained lawyer Marty Singer to represent him, who has basically said all the women are liars.
