Joan Collins Slams Her Son's Claim That Her Late Husband Anthony Newley Was a Pedophile

  Joan Collins Slams Her Son's Claim That Her Late Husband Anthony Newley Was a Pedophile Joan Collins is refuting claims made by her son Sacha Newley that her ex-husband (and Sacha’s father) Anthony Newley was allegedly a pedophile. “Never in a million years would I have been married to somebody like that,” Collins, 84, told Good Morning Britain of the late actor and singer-songwriter, whom she was was married to from 1963 to 1970 and had two children (Sacha and daughter Tara Newley). “Categorically, I can say that it is not true, that I never saw any of that kind of behavior from Anthony,” she added, explaining that the claims have been “very” stressful for her. Sacha, 52, made the shocking allegations about Anthony in an interview with The Sunday Times published Nov. 26. “He was a paedophile,” Sasha said. “My father was drawn to youthfulness; he thought innocence was an aphrodisiac. That was his sexual proclivity and it’s a very dangerous, destructive thing.” Now a painter preparing to release a memoir focused on growing up in Hollywood titled Unaccompanied Minor, Sasha went on to claim that he regularly witnessed sex as a child. “It was Hollywood and all the people were beautiful and gorgeous, wafting in and out of parties. My father put sex front and center. He exposed me to all of that — it was absolutely inappropriate,” Sasha claimed.

Kevin Spacey, Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby, Mel Gibson and many others might have reason to be concerned about their Academy membership in the wake of Wednesday's release of a "standard of conduct" statement threatening the suspension and expulsion of members who don't adhere to the new code of conduct.

But they don't need to worry just yet. Unlike the October 14 expulsion of disgraced Oscar-winning producer and indie mogul Harvey Weinstein following an an extraordinary vote of the Board of Governors, the Academy plans to take its time with future disciplinary moves.

Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed

  Amber Tamblyn says she's not ready for the redemption of sexual predators in op-ed Actress Amber Tamblyn says she is not ready for sexual predators to be forgiven in an op-ed published Thursday in The New York Times. The actress, who came forward with her own story of sexual abuse in October 2016, is speaking up about what should happen now after droves of women have come forward in recent months to accuse Hollywood power players like Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K. and more of sexual misconduct. Her thoughts? It's not quite time yet for these men, many of whom have lost jobs and more, to be redeemed. "Why do we need to talk about the redemption of men when we are right in the middle of the salvation of women? Not even the middle, but the very beginning?," she wrote. "Why are we obligated to care about salvaging male careers when we have just begun to tell the stories that have plagued us for lifetimes? It seems some men like a revolution only when it’s their kind of war."

"I’m not talking about banishment. I’m talking about ceding the floor. The power of celebrity and cultural approval must disappear for the time being so that all women see and believe that consequences do exist," she said, adding that redemption should be "earned, not offered." "If you want amends, you have to make them. You have to acknowledge the line in the sand. Once you do this, the next step is simple: Pick a side. Choose us," she wrote.

That's because this week's statement, which was drafted by a task force headed by Academy governor David Rubin and approved by the Board of Governors on Tuesday night, is a simple statement of principles that does not include a plan to seek out and discipline potential offenders -- whose numbers seem to have mushroomed in the weeks since Weinstein's sudden downfall after dozens of women accused him of sexual misconduct.

In fact, the Academy specifically delays any reckoning for post-Harvey types.

"There is no place in the Academy for people who abuse their status, power or influence in a manner that violates recognized standards of decency," reads part of the seven-sentence statement. "If any member is found by the Board of Governors to have violated these standards or to have compromised the integrity of the Academy by their actions, the Board of Governors may take any disciplinary action permitted by the Academy's Bylaws, including suspension or expulsion."

Post-Weinstein, Academy issues new code of conduct

  Post-Weinstein, Academy issues new code of conduct As sexual harassment scandals continue to rock Hollywood, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has issued a new code of conduct for its members. Following bombshell sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood figures including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, director James Toback and actor Kevin Spacey, Academy CEO Dawn Hudson emailed members Wednesday evening, informing them of the new "statement of values" members are expected to uphold. Procedures for handling allegations of misconduct are being finalized, she said in a memo obtained by USA TODAY."Much remains to be done," Hudson wrote.

But the accompanying email, which was sent to members on Wednesday evening by Academy CEO Dawn Hudson, noted: "Much remains to be done. The task force will finalize procedures for handling allegations of misconduct, assuring that we can address them fairly and expeditiously. This process will ultimately guide the Board of Governors in assessing if certain allegations warrant action regarding membership. Those procedures will be sent to you in the new year."

In other words, the board is not going to hold hearings on Spacey or Polanski or anyone else until the Academy has a procedure in place -- and the procedure won't be in place until the task force formulates it, which likely won't happen until sometime in 2018. The task force includes professors of ethics, business, philosophy and law and experts in human resources and sexual harassment.

The board clearly doesn't have much stomach for hearings that more than one member has suggested could turn into a witch hunt, but at some point it will need to implement the system its statement promises.
