Hooray for Hollywood, right?

From the Los Angeles Times:

During these meetings, many of the women said, Toback boasted of sexual conquests with the famous and then asked humiliating personal questions. How often do you masturbate? How much pubic hair do you have? He’d tell them, they said, that he couldn’t properly function unless he “jerked off” several times a day. And then he’d dry-hump them or masturbate in front of them, ejaculating into his pants or onto their bodies and then walk away. Meeting over.

The women’s accounts portray James Toback as a man who, for decades, sexually harassed women he hired, women looking for work and women he just saw on the street. The vast majority of these women — 31 of the 38 interviewed — spoke on the record. The Times also interviewed people that the women informed of the incidents when they occurred.

Way to go, America’s moral compass.

Indeed.

Full transparency, this editor hadn’t heard of Toback except in passing until reading this.

Probably not the best way to gain fame, James.

It certainly seems that way.

And THAT’S almost as bad as the actual harassment and assault, that people in Hollywood KNEW this was going on (with multiple directors it seems) and did NOTHING.

Let’s hope they keep falling.

Seems power and money go a long way in Hollywood and not in a good way.
