While he had never legally adopted Soon-Yi, Allen had known her since she was seven and had played a fatherly role to her. Many feel this places Allen's frequent casting of women much younger than himself as his characters' love interestsnote in a quite disturbing light. And then Allen's son Ronan Farrow, possibly inspired by what his (now-estranged) father had done to his family, became one of the architects of the #MeToo movement, which led to the allegations against Allen to be taken more seriously than ever before, causing several people involved in Allen's more recent films to apologize for being involved in them, and Amazon Studios to end their distribution contract with Allen.[/quote] [url]https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/eumk1i/actorsactresses_that_seemed_like_their_careers/ffs646d/[/url] [quote]For a while, she was the IT girl of Hollywood of the late 90's. She had the looks and wasn't a bad actress to become a star. But she reminds me a bit of Shannyn Sossamon (Knights Tale) who came out as the same time as Leelee, but I think both never really took acting that serious and only did it as they could make easy money from it. Leelee, peak years seem to have been late 90's to early 00's. After that she got herself stuck in B-Movie land, the dreaded wife/Girlfriend roles and cheap horror flicks. Seems to have settle into married life and been a mother, her film career seems on and off since 2010. Also reading up on her, seems like she got into acting to keep her artistic family (her mother was a struggling writer and her dad a Artist/Actor) afloat. Also she hated Hollywood and it's backstabbing nature. So Acting wasn't something she wanted.[/quote] [url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLOWnE3V3SQ[/url] [quote]The Star Wars Obi Wan Kenobi series for Disney+ is going back to the drawing board for a complete overhaul, shortly before the planned start of preproduction. Ewan McGregor attempted to defuse situation as it got out, claiming it was just about making already great scripts even better, which no one believed. So what fate awates Obi Wan? In this editorial, @AndreEinherjar will summarize what has happened, give his take on it, and address the rumors that George Lucas wants to come back to clean up the stain Kathleen Kennedy left on his legacy.[/quote] [url]https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/eumk1i/actorsactresses_that_seemed_like_their_careers/ffqumzv/[/url] [quote]Just throwing this out there, her career seemed to stall as a big player once she came out in 2014. I think she's someone who probably either by choice or just wasn't get the roles in big films anymore, decided to step back into Indie work and TV. My own opinion, she was always someone I felt had a time limit at the top as a lead actress in big films. So it doesn't surprise me she's not in more main stream films anymore.[/quote] In other words, Evan is cherry picking her perceived villains! [url]https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7934873/Evan-Rachel-Wood-receives-backlash-tweeting-Kobe-Bryant-rapist-hours-death.html[/url] My point is that she has the nerve to past judgement like that considering that has worked with Woody Allen, who has his own nasty skeletons (either or not they're truthful is up to individual debate). Okay, he's an alleged child molester/pedophile!

They wanted Bonnie Hunt but she wanted nothing to do with the show. So Judith Ivey was brought in. But this kind of behaviour towards Burke, then Duffy did not do the Thomasons any favours in their TV production businesses. Ironic that a woman (Bloodworth-Thomason) who claims to bestow every virtue of feminism and fighting for rights for women, would have a Bubba husband who bullied and intimidated his actresses on set! Annie Potts had signed for two more seasons around the time Delta was being offed from the show. However, she was so unhappy with the way the series was going she told CBS she would not be renewing if there was a season 8. This is why they moved Designing Women into that Friday night death slot, as they simply couldn't have another of the original actresses replaced. They all knew season 7 was the end. —Anonymous reply 162 9 hours ago[/quote] [url]https://www.datalounge.com/thread/25396708-why-do-i-%E2%9D%A4%EF%B8%8F-designing-women-[/url] [quote][R134] Actually DW Season 6 has the best writing of the entire 7 seasons. Each episode is well crafted, the dialogue flows brilliantly and there are a lot of funny lines. the problem was Jan Hooks was just too much on the goofy side and Julia Duffy was a Seinfeld type character, so it felt like a completely different series to when the four original women had been on. —Anonymous reply 148 9 hours ago[/quote] [url]https://www.datalounge.com/thread/25396708-why-do-i-%E2%9D%A4%EF%B8%8F-designing-women-[/url] [quote]The big issue started when Delta Burke got together with Gerald McRaney who was appearing on Simon and Simon and then Major Dad. McRaney started fuelling Burke saying she was the star of the show, but also the production was a shambles. Some tapings would go on till 3am! The goal for a good sit-com is the cast get out by 10pm on taping nights! The truth was, Suzanne was an incredibly popular character with the audience and Burke was correct to identify this. Around this time Roseanne had just successfully got producers replaced on her show, when these producers had been trying to get the network to fire her. The difference was John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf stated they wouldn't continue with the show if Roseanne was fired and it had to be re-booted. That is now ironic history! The problem Burke faced was the show wasn't called 'Suzanne' but 'Designing Women' and had a title that would enable it to be continued without being re-booted. Carter then wouldn't support Burke, as her husband was employed by the Thomasons on Evening Shade. So both of them were under the control of Mozark. Burke was also suffering extreme metal health issues which Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth simply regarded as 'Diva Drama'. In the end Burke went on TV with Barbara Walters and revealed all this publicly. I think had she not done that, the network would have supported her and removed the Thomasons from the production. They were already trying to do this, as they appointed a new producer in the fifth season. But you only need to notice how few successful sit-coms the Thomasons went on to produce after Designing Women, to see it was the ensemble of those four original women that held the magic for the show, and not the format they produced. —Anonymous reply 133 18 hours ago[/quote] View all replies >
