Hear Sarah Michelle Gellar Reprise Her Cruel Intentions Role for Sly Musical Adaptation

Time's 2017 Person of the Year Goes to Sexual Harassment Silence Breakers

Time's 2017 Person of the Year Goes to Sexual Harassment Silence Breakers
Time Magazine released its annual Person of the Year issue and instead of one person, they decided to include the Me Too movement, deeming them, "The Silence Breakers." It's a term designating the millions of women, and some men, who have shared their stories of enduring sexual harassment and/or assault, many under the viral #MeToo hashtag that exploded on social media in the closing months of 2017. More than 1.7 million people have spoken out about their sexual harassment and assault experiences since the hashtag took off in October after the Harvey Weinstein scandal brought the entertainment industry's dark underbelly to the surface.

Honoring the Me Too movement as Time's Person of the Year has been called a "global reckoning" with sexual misconduct everywhere, not just the entertainment industry. The magazine released a statement on their reasoning behind their choice. The statement reads.

"The women and men who have broken their silence span all races,

An Interview with the makers of Infinity Baby

2017: The Weinstein’s, Toback’s, Spacey’s, C.K’s, Affleck’s, and Hoffman’s of the film world have, for the first time, been ousted from their Hollywood havens and floated down an assembly line into the best short-term rehab facilities movie money can buy.

The effect is all encompassing, not just for filmmakers & entertainers, but for politicians (George H.W Bush, Al Franken), and the civilians who consume them, too. The influence is so sweeping that, come the 40th Denver Film Festival, a Toback story derailed an interview organized between the cast and crew of the feature film Infinity Baby, that was held in a small corner of the city’s Civic Center.

In attendance: Infinity Baby’s director Bob Byington (7 Chinese Brothers, Harmony & Me), its writer Onur Tukel (Catfight, The Misogynists), and its star Trieste Kelly Dunn (Banshee,

Breaking the James Toback Story: How the La Times’ Glenn Whipp Did It
Before Glenn Whipp broke the story of James Toback’s serial sexual harassment with testimonies from 31 women, there was “Doctor Strange” director Scott Derrickson’s Twitter feed. He has nearly 67,000 followers who love his films as well as his passionate takedowns of sexism. When the Harvey Weinstein story first broke in early October, Derrickson cheered on the women who told their stories and the journalists who reported them — and soon he received a Dm from a follower, actress Selma Blair, who had a Toback story to tell.

Derrickson is good friends with Glenn Whipp, a longtime entertainment reporter at the paper. “[Blair] was scared, because she’s a single mother, and she didn’t want to be sued,” Whipp said in an interview with IndieWire on November 3. “With the Times, we can’t offer legal protection, but typically what happens is that the news organization — not the individual — is sued, and
