James Toback exploded at harassment allegations mere days before LA Times story published

October 27, 2017

Rolling Stone contributor Hillel Aron talked to director James Toback about incidents where he sexually harassment women. This interview occured four days before the LA Times story was published, but is just now being shared.

In a recorded phone interview (at Toback's request), the director states that anyone making harassment allegations about him "is a lying cocksucker or cunt or both. Can I be any clearer than that? Anyone who says that, I just want to spit in his or her fucking face. […] No one who's ever worked with me would ever say anything like that."

Aron gives Toback names of women and what Toback did to them. Toback claims he has no idea who these women even are, would never do things like that and finds the whole conversation idiotic, before telling the interviewer covering stories like this should be beneath him and that talking any more about it was a waste of time. Toback called back and asked Aron to talk to someone who worked with him before: "You will never hear anything but a good word. To ignore and to instead quote people whose names I don't know, it's not a good way to deal. It's beneath good journalistic standards."

What Aron did not mentioned during his talk was that his wife, public radio reporter Anna Scott, was one of the women he sexually harassed. Scott was a 18-year old senior in high school when she met Toback.


Behold Justin Bieber’s Pure and Untouched Body Before He Covered It With Tattoos

October 25, 2017

Justin Bieber got his first tattoo way back when he was 16, so it’s kind of hard to imagine him without any ink at all (you’d have to go back to the “Baby” days). While he’s been expressing himself through arm sleeves and chest pieces, he recently decided to really go all in when he revealed he tattooed his entire stomach. While we love a bit of ink on our favorite celebrities, Justin’s definitely made our mouths drop open for a second. Not only do we now have to look really hard to make out his sexy abs, but his smooth and beautiful skin that we were so used to staring at before is now covered in designs. Some fans also seemed to be a bit bummed by his new addition, tweeting things like “Why?” and “WTF HAPPENED.” We’ll probably be in love with it like we are David Beckham’s and Dwayne Johnson’s tattoos, but we’ll just have to get used to it first.

All the Ladies Joe Jonas Dated Before Finding True Love With Sophie Turner

October 21, 2017

Joe Jonas is about to be off the market for good, and we couldn’t think of a better reason to look back at some of his most-publicized romances. Before getting engaged to Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, the DNCE frontman was quite the ladies’ man. Aside from romancing Taylor Swift during his Jonas Brothers days, he also dated one of her best friends – Gigi Hadid. And that’s just the icing on the cake (by the ocean). See which other ladies have caught the love bug with Joe.

Matt Damon started damage control before the storm

October 10, 2017

Known rapist-enabler/apologist Matt Damon was ousted when ex-NYT journalist Sharon Waxman named him as the one of complicit players who called in and stopped her from publishing an article detailing Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse of women in 2004 (along with Yogi Bear lookin ass Russell Crowe)

However not even a day earlier, E! published a hyper-transparent, groan-inducing, ass-kissing article praising Matt Damon as being “perfect” (blech)

Note from the OP: this article came right after Sharon Waxman’s initial confession of a squashed article on Weinstein, but before she named names of the players involved in situation. I have an inkling Damon’s team paid E! off to leak a pr-positive story featuring him because they suspected his name was going to get dropped. This is all pure speculation, of course.

Matt, we know what the fuck youre doing
