Even after her death Carrie Fisher is having none of your bullshit.

Heather Ross, a friend of Fisher’s, spoke to a local radio station in Tucson, AZ. about her experience with sexual assault in Hollywood. On the 94.9 Morning Mix, Ross recalled inappropriate advances from a big name producer and how Fisher made clear she had a zero-tolerance policy for that kind of behavior.

After Ross was assaulted by “an Oscar-winning producer” – not Weinstein, but another – Fisher was furious. After the initial shock and fear wore off, Fisher ran into the producer at Sony and delivered him a package.

“It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box.’”

The cow tongue was all Fisher’s idea, natch, and she made sure to deliver it in person and watch him open the box.

“That’s just how she was,” Ross said. “I miss her dearly. She stood up for people…She put things out there and in your face.”

Ross met the producer online – their conversations weren’t sexual or romantic, she said, but he did want to meet up and get her involved with his latest project.

“I felt safe thinking, ‘I’m overweight, I’m not attractive to these people, I’m not looking to become an actress,'” she explained.

She met with him and he made sexual advances. “When it happened, it happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself,” she said. “I thought I did something wrong. And I thought, ‘Well, maybe by meeting up with him…I was asking for it.'”

The producer picked her up in his car then made an excuse to pull over. He reached over her to quickly recline the passenger-side seat then pushed himself on top of her.

Ross explained she thought she was “protected” by not fitting Hollywood’s beauty standards, but her story confirms what most women know and what a piece like Mayim Bialik’s New York Times column failed to pick up on: This happens to all women.

Ross told her mother and friends but ultimately stayed silent for many years, describing the massive power gap between a “kid from Tucson” and an award-winning producer.

Stephen King wants you to know the second part of ‘IT’ is on the way…

“It’s not often you find yourself eagerly awaiting a fresh glimpse of a nightmare-inducing clown, but here we are.

It’s now been well over a year since Andrés Muschietti’s IT adaptation giggled its way into theatres, before going on to smash the previous record for highest-grossing U.S. box office horror movie. Since then, we’ve had some good — if slightly far-off sounding — news: IT Chapter Two will be coming to theatres on 6 Sept. 2019.

Okay, so that may still be nine months away, but — judging by Stephen King’s recent tweet — we may be due a clown-themed surprise earlier than expected.

So, what exactly does that mean, then?

Well, if we had to guess, it seems likely that King has recently seen some promotional material relating to the film — possibly an image, or maybe even some early footage. Perhaps something that we may get to see ourselves before too long.

It certainly feels like we’re overdue some Pennywise…

Zac Efron just shared a new photo of himself as serial killer Ted Bundy

Published

“The last time we saw our favourite teen heartthrob Zac Efron, he was prancing around the stage in The Greatest Showman. But in his next movie, Zefron is taking it in a whole other direction.

The former High School Musical and Baywatch star just shared a new photo of himself in the upcoming movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where he portrays infamous American serial killer Ted Bundy.

Efron shared a photo of what appears to be Bundy in a courtroom, captioned “Ready for Sundance!”

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is set to premiere at the film festival in January 2019.

The movie tells the story of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins (daughter of Phil).

Real-life Ted Bundy murdered at least 30 women between 1973 and 1978. He was sentenced to death and died in the electric chair in the state of Florida in 1989.

If Zefron is as good at acting like a complete psychopath as he is at dancing, singing, and basketball, this movie’s bound to be good.”

‘Game of Thrones’ filmed fake scenes to keep Season 8 secrets

“The secrets of the realm must always be protected, which is why Game of Thrones Season 8 filmed fake scenes to mislead spies and sleuths who are after the final season’s secrets.

Director David Nutter confirmed to Huffington Post that he had in fact filmed scenes he knew were fake.

Actress Sophie Turner previously brought up such measures in October, along with on-set “drone killers,” fake script titles, and more.

“Sometimes there were paparazzi in amazing places on construction cranes and all kinds of crazy places, to try to get a point of view of things,” Nutter told HuffPo.

“They were all over, everywhere, trying to get in on what was happening. But it was definitely a situation where there was no paper on the set,” he continued. “[The production team] wanted to make sure nobody knew what was happening, and they went to the nth degree, like they do on the show in general. They basically take it to the point where it’s like the Gestapo. It’s tough to get answers.”

Though these lengths sound extreme, Nutter seems confident they’ll be worth it in the end……………………………..”
