Newton Slams Tinseltown Casting Couch

17 October 2011 9:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Thandie Newton has hit out at Hollywood's casting couch culture, revealing she was targeted by "gross" directors trying to "exploit" her naivety.

The English actress broke into the mainstream with her role in 1994 movie Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles and went on to find international fame the following year with her role in Jefferson In Paris.

Now she's revealed she was twice targeted by sleazy producers in the early days of her career, claiming one director made footage "literally shooting up my skirt" and a photographer forced her to pose for snaps while bending over a desk and wearing a leather miniskirt.

And when she accidentally met the same snapper earlier this year she was tempted to confront him over the incident - but decided to leave it unsaid because he was with his family.

Newton tells Stella magazine, "I had this real eruption of emotion. I didn't because his kids were there, but I wanted to say, 'Shame on you'... It's a minority of people who want to exploit you in the creative world, but if you want to be opportunistic in that way, it's brilliant." »

Their Best Role: Nick Nolte in 'Affliction'

9 February 2011 6:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Cinematical

Nick Nolte has played many memorable characters, but one in particular -- Wade Whitehouse in 1998's 'Affliction' -- edges out the others by a hair for its intensity and sheer guts. Nolte's an actor whose scrappy physicality and distinctive, gravelly voice are just the proverbial icing on the cake of his power on-screen. Whether playing heavies in gritty dramas ('Q&A,' 'Mulholland Falls'), romantic leads ('The Prince of Tides') or comedic characters ('Down and Out in Beverly Hills,' 'Tropic Thunder'), Nolte is always compelling. Even his less successful roles ('Jefferson in Paris') are at least interesting.

Nolte turns 70 this week, a good time to voice our appreciation for the man who -- even through some tough personal travails, notably a battle with alcoholism -- has puts enormous amount of heart and soul into his movies, »
