Rob Schneider: “Actors, and actress more than guys, they’re particularly vulnerable because they need an agent, and the agents are creeps too. Casting directors, producers, directors, is rampant in the industry. There’s not one actress who doesn’t have a story.
When I was a young actor, there was a gross director and it happened to me. I was a famous director, and this was before I was really famous, but next thing you know I was in a room with this guy. He’s in a chair wearing a robe, and wanted me to crawl towards him on the floor.”
As previously reported, embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is the subject of a devastating expose detailing decades of sexual harassment.
On October 5th, The New York Times blew the roof off of the decades long ‘open secret’ in Hollywood that Harvey Weinstein was essentially a sexual predator who preyed on young starlets. Weinstein reportedly paid off several sexual harassment accusers over the years.
A tsunami of women have since come forward with their horror stories of sexual harassment and sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, including A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.
The New Yorker also dropped a bombshell alleging Weinstein raped three women: the story dominated the Drudge Report’s headline in bright red letters.
