Same here. I feel like something's gotta give soon enough with the pedophiles in Hollywood.

I know lots of people have said that his relationship to Vikander is a PR relationship, but idk about that. I guess Vikander is just kind of easy to be married to because she's so chill and passive. I hope Michael doesn't abuse or hurt her because of how nice she is.
Vikander isn't exactly white as in whitewhite lol
No, in the context we were speaking, she's white. Having a deeper skin tone than your stereotypical Swede or tanning doesn't change that fact.

Gary Goddard now. Gotta imagine it’ll be Singer and Geffen next. After that...who knows. This is still just the tip of the iceberg and don’t be surprised if some of our most revered filmmakers get implicated too.

Louis C.k's statement is something at least.

I'm hoping this is not limited to Hollywood and victims in other places, namely Washington DC, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley start coming out also.

Louis CK's statement for those interested:
These stories are true. At the time, I said to myself that what I did was O.K. because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true. But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your dick isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I learned yesterday the extent to which I left these women who admired me feeling badly about themselves and cautious around other men who would never have put them in that position. I also took advantage of the fact that I was widely admired in my and their community, which disabled them from sharing their story and brought hardship to them when they tried because people who look up to me didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t think that I was doing any of that because my position allowed me not to think about it. There is nothing about this that I forgive myself for. And I have to reconcile it with who I am. Which is nothing compared to the task I left them with. I wish I had reacted to their admiration of me by being a good example to them as a man and given them some guidance as a comedian, including because I admired their work.

The hardest regret to live with is what you’ve done to hurt someone else. And I can hardly wrap my head around the scope of hurt I brought on them. I’d be remiss to exclude the hurt that I’ve brought on people who I work with and have worked with who’s professional and personal lives have been impacted by all of this, including projects currently in production: the cast and crew of Better Things, Baskets, The Cops, One Mississippi, and I Love You, Daddy. I deeply regret that this has brought negative attention to my manager Dave Becky who only tried to mediate a situation that I caused. I’ve brought anguish and hardship to the people at FX who have given me so much The Orchard who took a chance on my movie. and every other entity that has bet on me through the years. I’ve brought pain to my family, my friends, my children and their mother.

I have spent my long and lucky career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen. Thank you for reading.

The Louis shit was especially disgusting since he was the first one to go down that I was a huge fan of. Now his comedy seems real weird in retrospect

What a bunch of freaking losers, anybody else pissed you purchased stuff with these people in them and supported them? Got rid of my House of Cards seasons already, time to do the same with my Louie seasons. F*** Hollywood and their “messages” they try to give to the public when they don’t even have their shit straight and everyone looks the other way.
