sexual abuse 

So Frank Langella is an abuser too. Apparently was told what to not do during a sex scene, did it anyway, got fired, now shouting "cancel culture!"

And that was after he'd been reprimanded for inappropriate touching and off-color jokes.

sexual abuse 

@uliwitness how hard would it have been to

a) agree with the intimacy coördinator
b) walk away from the scene (and have a body double do it)
c) apologize

But no, everyone else is at fault

sexual abuse 

@chucker @uliwitness Yeah, saying no to the intimacy coördinator is like saying no to the stunt director or the choreographer or the director. But especially the stunt director because it is a safety issue. “It removes the spontaneity”. Lol, Frank a lot of acting is about professionally removing the spontaneity but you know acting as if it was spontaneous. That’s the job. That’s every sort of blocking (and choreography and…)

sexual abuse 

@max @uliwitness exactly. There’s cases of actors improvising, but 1) those are rare and can still be veto’d by the director and 2) this is… not the place for that any more than a stunt would be.

sexual abuse 

@chucker @uliwitness Yeah, and not just veto’d by the director, but a lot of directors require permission up front to try it and only on specific takes. And the Producers also often get vetos because time/budget/planning/continuity. Underscoring that *professional* part: filmmaking is a business and has to manage time. Upsetting a coworker to the point that time is wasted is unprofessional, no matter the action that caused it.
