“CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King called for transparency at the network Tuesday in the wake of CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves’ departure and gained support later in the day from the women of “The Talk.”
“I am so sorry again that it hits so close to home for us,” King said Tuesday morning, likely referring to co-host Charlie Rose’s ouster this year in the throes of the #MeToo movement. “I’m sick and sick of the story and sickened by everything that we keep hearing.”
Moonves, who was already under investigation over sexual misconduct allegations, resigned Sunday after a Ronan Farrow report in the New Yorker detailed allegations by six additional women.
It turns out, what Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry has always wanted to do is direct.
At least that’s allegedly Berry’s next move, as Deadline Hollywood reported Tuesday that the “X-Men” star is planning to make her feature directorial debut with the mixed martial arts action drama “Bruised.”
Berry will also star in the project as a disgraced MMA fighter forced to rehabilitate herself and her career to provide for her son.
That appeared to be the message Monday night during the comedian’s “Late Show” monologue, which addressed the CBS chief executive’s departure from the network after repeated accusations of sexual misconduct.
“This came after a second Ronan Farrow exposé featured more women accusing [Moonves] of sexual harassment and assault,” Colbert said of his former boss.
Boyd Holbrook does not want his “Predator” co-star Olivia Munn to feel “abandoned or alone” for speaking out after discovering that a registered sex offender had been cast in the film.
“I have stated before, and I will state it again, I am proud of Olivia for the way that she handled a difficult and alarming situation, and I am grateful that Fox took the information seriously and took action swiftly,” said Holbrook in a statement posted to his Instagram on Monday.
In his statement, the actor also confirmed that the situation led him to pull out of some press commitments to promote “The Predator” at the Toronto International Film Festival.
