Grey’s Anatomy Ellen Pompeo Made A Pretty Startling And Intense Confession

  • OnTheFlix
Hey, "Grey's Anatomy" fans. We just found a new report from the folks over at USA Today which reveals that our main star Ellen Pompeo aka Meredith Grey (above) told them about a not-so-pleasant experience she had earlier in her career. This experience sounds pretty shocking and intense because it has to do with director James Toback. Toback is the same guy that Ellen's castmate Caterina Scorsone aka Amelia Shepherd accused of serious sexual harassment advances. Additionally, Toback has been accused of sexual harassment by more than 30 women. Ellen revealed that she's been more fortunate than these other poor ladies, but she did admit to having her own unpleasant run-in with Toback. Apparently, her encounter with him got to the point where she felt the need to tell him to go f@#ck himself! She stated, "I actually did have a situation with James Toback where I kind of told

Selma Blair Nabs Rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s “The Lost”

Blair in “Columbus Circle

Selma Blair wants us to get lost. The “Kath & Kim” alumna and her production company, Sainted Productions, have snagged the rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s 2013 novel “The Lost,” Variety reports.

The book follows Lauren, a woman who finds herself trapped in a desolate town on the edge of a desert that’s “filled with things abandoned, broken, and thrown away,” according to its Amazon synopsis. When Lauren “tries to escape, impassible dust storms and something unexplainable lead her back to Lost again and again. The residents she meets there tell her she’s going to have to figure out just what she’s missing — and what she’s running from — before she can leave. So now Lauren’s on a new search for a purpose and a destiny. And maybe, just maybe, she’ll be found.”

Now seeking a writer to pen the script, Blair is “undecided” about whether or not she’ll topline the project, which may take the form of a film or a TV series.

Blair co-stars in TV Land’s upcoming “Heathers” reboot, which is expected to debut early next year. Her credits include “The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” the “Hellboy” franchise, and “Legally Blonde.”

Selma Blair Nabs Rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s “The Lost” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Quote of the Day: Reese Witherspoon on Reliving Ugly Truths in the Wake of Weinstein Allegations

Witherspoon in “Big Little Lies

Reese Witherspoon is opening up about her own history of abuse in Hollywood. “[I feel] true disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old and anger at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment,” the Oscar winner said during her speech at Elle’s Women in Hollywood event yesterday, per The Hollywood Reporter. “And I wish I could tell you that was an isolated incident in my career, but sadly it wasn’t. I’ve had multiple experiences of harassment and sexual assault and I don’t speak about them very often,” she revealed.

Clearly impacted by the many allegations about Harvey Weinstein and her Hollywood peers’ decision to come forward with their own stories, the “Big Little Lies” producer and star decided to go public with hers. “This has been a really hard week for women in Hollywood, for women all over the world and a lot of situations and a lot of industries that are forced to remember and relive a lot of ugly truths,” she observed. “I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly and I find it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate a lot of the feelings that I’ve been having about anxiety, about being honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier, for not taking action.”

Witherspoon continued, “After hearing all the stories these past few days and hearing these brave women speak up tonight about things that we’re kind of told to sweep under the rug and not to talk about, it’s made me want to speak up and speak up loudly because actually I felt less alone this week than I have felt in my entire career. I have just spoken to so many actresses and writers, particularly women, who have had similar experiences and many of them have bravely gone public with their stories. That truth is very encouraging to me and to everyone out there in the world because you can only heal by telling the truth.”

As painful as it was to revisit these experiences, Witherspoon seemed hopeful that doing so publicly would help bring much-needed attention to an issue that’s all too common. “I feel really, really encouraged that there will be a new normal,” she said. “For the young women in this room, life is going to be different because we have your back and it makes me feel better because, gosh, it’s about time. … I’m so sad that I have to talk about these issues, but I would be remiss not to.”

Witherspoon made her big screen debut with 1991’s “A Man on the Moon.” She won an Academy Award in 2006 for playing June Carter in “Walk the Line.” Her other credits include “Wild,” “Legally Blonde,” and “Election.” She can currently be seen in Hallie Meyers-Shyer’s “Home Again,” a romantic comedy about a recently separated woman who unexpectedly gets roommates.

TV's Laura Bell Bundy Returns to the Stage After 10-Year Hiatus in ‘The Honeymooners’ (Exclusive)

After a 10-year hiatus, Laura Bell Bundy, a Tony-nominated actress, is back on stage (despite a broken toe from rehearsals), singing and dancing in the world premiere production of The Honeymooners. The musical, based on the 1950s CBS TV show, is playing at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey, through Oct. 29. In it, Bundy plays Trixie, a former burlesque dancer married to Ed Norton (Michael Mastro), who wants to get back into show business.

“Even though she loves her husband so much, it’s not enough for her to stay in the house and be a housewife. I think [writers Dusty Kay and Bill Nuss] felt that message resonated with women of 2017,” she tells Et, explaining that the character is not stuck in a time warp of the show’s 1950s conventions.

Originally from Kentucky, Bundy, known for originating such roles on Broadway as Amber Von Tussel in Hairspray and Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, first got her start

Selma Blair’s Production Company to Adapt Novel ‘The Lost’ Into Movie (Exclusive)
Selma Blair and her production company, Sainted Productions, have purchased the rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s novel “The Lost.”

Blair is now looking for a writer to pen the movie and is undecided about whether she’ll also star in the pic. “The Lost” marks the first piece of IP that Sainted Productions has purchased.

It is also unknown at this time whether this will be adapted into a film or TV series.

Durst is an award-winning author who was honored with the Mythopoeic Award and Alex Award from the American Library Association.

Blair is best known for her roles in “Cruel Intentions,” “Legally Blonde,” and “Hellboy.” Most recently, her film “Mom and Dad,” co-starring Nicolas Cage, premiered at Midnight Madness at the Toronto Film Festival
