The stars of Universal’s ‘Truth or Dare‘ are game for the new stipulation from SAG-AFTRA prohibiting holding professional meetings in private residences or hotel rooms.

At the premiere of the horror film held at ArcLight Hollywood’s Cinerama Dome Thursday night, “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey praised the idea of feeling more comfortable in a professional setting.

“Even I have had meetings with directors at their house–and this was before #MeToo and #TimesUp surfaced–where I would pull up and feel like: ‘This is kind of weird.’ And that it didn’t feel right, you know? So, you should definitely rent an office or just meet in a public space,” Posey said.

Lucy Hale, who currently stars in “Life Sentence” on The CW, agreed that supporting “anything to protect men and women” is necessary, but laments the fact that SAG-aftra has even had to go to

Bryan Singer Accused of Raping 17-Year-Old Boy in 2003
Bryan Singer was sued Thursday for allegedly raping a 17-year-old boy on a yacht in Seattle in 2003.

The alleged victim, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, accused the director of forcing him to perform oral sex. According to the suit, which was filed in state court in Seattle, the director then forcibly performed oral sex on Sanchez-Guzman and then anally penetrated him.

Later, Singer approached Sanchez-Guzman and told him he was a producer and could help him get into acting if he did not say anything about the incident, the suit alleges.

“He then told Cesar that no one would believe him if he ever reported the incident, and that he could hire people who are capable of ruining someone’s reputation,” the lawsuit states.

The yacht was owned by Lester Waters, a wealthy tech investor “who frequently hosted parties for young gay males in the Seattle area,” the suit alleges.

The Girls writer who was accused of sexually assaulting actress Aurora Perrineau is retracting a previous statement claiming she demanded money from him.

“In a previous statement to media, we stated that Ms. Perrineau sought substantial monetary damages from our client Murray Miller.

Lena Dunham Uses Feminism to Market, Not to Lead, and Apologies Don’t Fix That — Opinion
No matter how many times she does it, Lena Dunham doesn’t seem to get any better at apologizing. The “Girls” co-creator and “Tiny Furniture” filmmaker has doled out multiple public atonements over the last decade, with verbal missteps ranging from wishing she’d had an abortion to comparing Jezebel to an abusive husband. Her most recent attempt to make amends arrives at a critical point in Hollywood history and modern feminism, and it’s time to recognize that her political stances are not misguided, or even inconsistent: They aren’t ruled by values, but by what’s good for Dunham and her friends.

The most recent example stemmed from a statement by Aurora Perrineau, who accused former “Girls” writer and producer Murray Miller of raping her when she was 17 years old. Within hours of the accusation on November 17, Dunham and her “Girls” co-creator Jenni Konner essentially called Perrineau a liar.
