Meryl Streep on sexual misconduct: 'I don't want to hear about the silence of me'

  Meryl Streep on sexual misconduct: 'I don't want to hear about the silence of me' Meryl Streep has spoken out again about the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the growing movement to combat sexual misconduct in Hollywood and beyond. Speaking to The New York Times, Streep recalled how the Weinstein news “underlined my own sense of cluelessness” and how she “really had to think” before she responded, even as people were calling on her to do so. “I found out about this on a Friday and went home deep into my own life,” she told the Times. And then somebody told me that on Morning Joe they were screaming that I haven’t responded yet. I don’t have a Twitter thing or – handle, whatever. And I don’t have Facebook. I really had to think. Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person he was, yet such a champion of really great work.” “You make movies. You think you know everything about everybody. So much gossip. You don’t know anything,” she added. “People are so inscrutable on a certain level. And it’s a shock. Some of my favorite people have been brought down by this, and he’s not one of them.” Streep, who worked with Weinstein on films like August: Osage County and The Iron Lady, released a statement on Oct. 9 — four days after the Times‘ first bombshell story about Weinstein was published — calling the allegations against him “inexcusable” and saying that she did not know about the alleged “inappropriate, coercive acts” he was accused of doing.

Wearing a “Time’s Up” pin and holding his Golden Globe award backstage at the Beverly Hilton, Gary Oldman said that the response to the sexual misconduct allegations that have overwhelmed Hollywood marks an “evolutionary” moment — and that he made a conscious decision decades ago not to work with disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein.

“When the curtain came down on Harvey, I was flabbergasted and shocked,” Oldman said. “Fortunately he was never in my orbit. We met in ’92. He gave me the creeps and I said ‘Let’s not work with that guy,’ and I never did.”

Canadian Alex Harvey 5th at 'mayhem' Tour de Ski

  Canadian Alex Harvey 5th at 'mayhem' Tour de Ski A broken pole and brutal race conditions weren’t enough to keep Canadian Alex Harvey from his second-straight top-five finish on the Tour de Ski in Oberstdorf, Germany on Thursday. One day after heavy rain and high winds forced the cancellation of the fourth stage of the seven-race Tour — a classic-ski sprint race — Mother Nature stole the show once again. The world's best cross-country skiers were forced to contend with wet and slushy conditions on a relatively flat, 15-kilometre skate-ski mass start race that resulted in countless crashes and broken poles.

Allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Weinstein made in October in reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker kicked off the #MeToo movement last year, encouraging victims of abuse to step forward.

Oldman said of the movement that has risen up to shed light on sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment business and the broader culture, “A wheel is turning. It’s turning a notch in the evolutionary wheel. We’re still coming out of the mists of time.”

Oldman won the Globe for best actor in a motion-picture drama Sunday for his performance as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” He likened the current movement against a culture of harassment and assault to Churchill’s stance against Adolf Hitler in World War II. “Words and actions can change the world,” Oldman said, adding, “I look at essential people, people like Washington and Lincoln. That’s who you could compare him to.”

1) Best Picture: <p><strong>Which film will win: </strong>Dunkirk</p><p> <strong>Why it will win:</strong> Christopher Nolan’s gritty, intense World War II film is a spectacle of filmmaking prowess. It’s best viewed on the big screen - with a box of Kleenex in hand - and Oscar voters will likely appreciate its themes, which include the toll of warfare and the human ability to overcome unlikely odds. WWII flicks are perennial favorites at the Oscars, and Dunkirk's technical skill is unparalleled amongst this year's offerings.</p><p> <strong>Other awards so far: </strong>Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture - Drama, Best Director - Motion Picture; SAG Awards nomination for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture; AFI Award for Movie of the Year.

Who Will Win at the Oscars in 2018?

Harvey Weinstein Can't Afford to Pay Child Support for 'At Least One Year': Report .
Harvey Weinstein has claimed he’s too broke to pay his ex-wife child support, according a newly released court ruling obtained by Page Six. The outlet reports that the disgraced Hollywood producer told his first wife, Eve Chilton, he would not be able to pay child support for two of their daughters — aged 15 and 19 — for “at least one year,” per a Jan. 2 court ruling that was released on Friday. However, the ruling — which was released by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Katz — denied Chilton’s demand that Weinstein pay her $5 million, which she claimed the producer owed her from their 2004 divorce settlement. In the decision, Chilton claimed she was owed the money because there was “‘real and present danger’ [Weinstein] would default on his financial obligations to her.” She went on to claim “she was informed [Weinstein] would not be able to pay his child support for at least one year.” A representative for Weinstein tells PEOPLE that “Harvey has always paid his child support and will continue to honor his obligations. And the court agreed — hence the denial of her request.” Weinstein and Chilton, the producer’s former assistant, divorced in 2004 after seven years of marriage and three children, ages 22, 19 and 15. Their divorce settlement allegedly required Weinstein to pay a total of $60 million in support, of which Chilton claims $5 million is outstanding. Weinstein also has two children — ages 7 and 4 — with Georgina Chapman.
