Ronan Farrow penned a scathing op-ed in The Hollywood Reporter, calling out stars who clearly have lots of other options for working with Woody Allen, as well as the media for dismissing his sister Dylan Farrow’s claims. If you forget, … More
Remember that whole wage gap story Jennifer Lawrence told about getting paid less than her male co-stars for her work in the grossly overrated Oscar bait that was American Hustle? Yeah, it turns out, it may not necessarily have been … More
Gwyneth Paltrow, the bane of actual working mothers everywhere, has issues with what she perceives as a gender wage gap in Hollywood. “Your salary is a way to quantify what you’re worth,” she told Variety (via Page Six). “If men … More
Upon rewatching one of my all-time favorite films, Goodfellas, it occurred to me that the movie has a slew of wisdom about business. If you want to get ahead in your career, don’t make the mistakes Henry Hill and company … More
