Blake Lively says she was filmed by ‘voyeuristic’ make-up artist, harassed


Blake Lively is the latest star to open up about her experience with sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Lively, 30, told the Los Angeles Times Thursday that a make-up artist sexually harassed her in a “terrifying” occurrence.

“He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” Lively told the Los Angeles Times.


“I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me. I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do,” Lively continued.

Lively said she reported the make-up artist to the producer of the project but not much was done.

Marchesa co-founder Georgina Chapman took what some believed was her only brand-saving leap Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017, as sex abuse allegations against her husband Harvey Weinstein mounted. Breaking her six-day silence, she told People she was leaving the film mogul she married in 2007. The divorce revelation came as some on social media called for a Marchesa boycott.

Blake Lively, here with her husband Ryan Reynolds, said not much was done after she reported the sexual harassment.


“Finally,” she said, “after three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.’ I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day.’ And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can’t have this happen again.’”

Lively took the ordeal into her own hands and went to a lawyer to report the harassment. An investigation was ordered and the make-up artist was kicked off the project.

Lively said the make-up artist was given a letter of recommendation to avoid “bad blood.”

“Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,” Lively said.

Lively made a statement Tuesday regarding the allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.


“That was never my experience with Harvey in any way whatsoever, and I think that if people heard these stories… I do believe in humanity enough to think that this wouldn’t have just continued,” Lively told The Hollywood Reporter. “I never heard any stories like this — I never heard anything specific — but it’s devastating to hear.”

She added, “It’s important that women are furious right now. It’s important that there is an uprising. It’s important that we don’t stand for this and that we don’t focus on one or two or three or four stories, it’s important that we focus on humanity in general and say, ‘That is unacceptable.'” 

Last week, The New York Times reported Weinstein has been paying off women who accused him of sexual harassment for decades. On Tuesday, the New Yorker released an expose revealing Weinstein allegedly raped three women. Many actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Kate Beckinsale and Angelina Jolie have spoken out about their experiences with Weinstein’s alleged inappropriate behavior.

The date went so nice, they did it twice!!

Blake Griffin and Kendall Jenner spent ANOTHER night out together — hitting up Nobu in Malibu for dinner on Thursday … their 2nd date night in a row

The two have been hanging out a lot lately … spending several nights out together in August — including a double date with Chandler Parsons and Hailey Baldwin on Wednesday. 

Back in July, Griffin had been rekindling with his ex Brynn Cameron— the mother of his 2 kids — but it seems that’s taken a backseat to Kendall … at least publicly.

Is something going on between Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin

The supermodel and NBA star stepped out Wednesday night for what a source describes to E! News as a “double date” with Kendall’s bestie Hailey Baldwin and fellow basketball pro Chandler Parsons

Jenner, 21, and Griffin, 28, arrived at Craig’s in Los Angeles together at around 9:30 p.m., where they were seated at a private booth in the rear of the restaurant. Our insider says it was “definitely more than just a friendly outing because the girls were seated close to their men.” 

But aside from sitting next to each other, the eyewitness says Kenny and Blake weren’t “overly affectionate and didn’t show a lot of PDA” save for a brief moment when the athlete wrapped his arm around her shoulder. 

The source explains, “You could tell Blake was more into Kendall by the way he was staring and smiling at her. He looked very into her.” 

As the foursome indulged in pizza and pasta, we’re told there were plenty of laughs going around and everyone appeared to be having fun. “The boys were definitely loving being with the girls,” our insider shares, who also said Kendall and Hailey acted “more nonchalant” than their dinner dates.

“Hailey was loving the attention from Chandler but it didn’t seem like they were an actual couple,” the eyewitness adds. 

From there, Kendall and Blake hopped in a car—where they were spotted “cuddling in the backseat”—and continued their evening at the Nightingale Plaza club with a small group of friends. The party concluded around 2 a.m., and E! News has learned the rumored couple also left together.

They’ve yet to comment on their relationship status publicly, but Kendall and Blake’s date night concludes a string of outings over the past few weeks. 

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was last romantically linked to A$AP Rocky, but as a separate source tells E! News, Jenner hasn’t been photographed with the rapper in some time and the pair is typically “inseparable.”

When her romance with A$AP was still fresh, a source told E! News that while Jenner is  “open” to the idea of dating him exclusively, she “is seeing a few people” at the moment.

“They’ve been on and off for close to a year but have been hanging out with each other more lately,” the source added. “She likes him, and he likes her.”

Uber hires former Facebook exec and Firefox founder Blake Ross


Uber has hired Firefox co-founder Blake Ross to work with them on product strategy.

Ross will be working with the ridesharing company part-time from Los Angeles. He announced it on Facebook, where he once worked as director of product. 

“I’m joining Uber to help develop product strategy, rally the troops, and improve my passenger rating,” quipped Ross.

The news comes just two days after the company announced its new CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi. The role had been vacant since June, when Travis Kalanick was pressured to resign.

From a “#DeleteUber” social media campaign in January to allegations of a sexist company culture to a patent lawsuit with Waymo, it’s been a difficult year for the global ridesharing company. Yet its financials show Uber has still continued to grow.

We can expect Uber to make more key hires in the coming months as it tries to improve its image and gear up toward its eventual IPO.

As for Ross, it looks like he’ll have more inspiration for his Silicon Valley-themed spoofs.

If they’re NOT dating by now … they should be. 

Blake Griffin and Kendall Jenner went out to a fancy romantic dinner AGAIN — this time, they were joined by fellow NBA star Chandler Parsons and Hailey Baldwin.

Blake and Kendall left Craig’s in L.A. together and got into a waiting car. Chandler followed shortly after. Hailey was definitely with the group … but didn’t want to be part of the mass exodus. 

Chandler and Hailey have been spotted together in the past (sunbathing together in June) but insist they’re not exclusively dating. 

Blake and Kendall have been spending a lot of time together, too. But no official confirmation there either. 

Bottom line — four attractive, rich, famous people hanging out. What do YOU think is happening?

Blake Lively is 30, going on 17…

The Gossip Girl alum recently had a birthday celebration with girlfriends such as Anna Kendrick and jewelry designers Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Sandberg. Lively and Kendrick star in Bridesmaids director Paul Feig‘s new thriller, A Simple Favor.

Lively shared a couple of pics from the bash on Instagram, writing, “My super sweet 16…but like 14 years late.

The actress was presented with a chocolate birthday cake topped with fruit and pieces of white chocolate.

“Happy happy birthday to our amazing adopted little sister #blakelively I love you so so much,” Schwartz wrote.

“Wishing you the happiest birthday and the sweetest year ever my Blakey,” Sandberg said. “You have a heart of gold and a smile that lights up the skies I ❤️U so much lil sis #blakelively #dirtythirty #friendsthatarefamily”

Lively wrote, “Best bday surprise = my sisters from a different mama @lorraineschwartz @ofirajewelz Love you til I’m 40. But not a day longer.”

Notably absent from the photos were Lively’s husband Ryan Reynoldsand BFFs and former The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars, Alexis Bledel, Amber Tamblyn and America Ferrera. A couple of weeks ago, Lively shared a photo with the former two and gave a shout-out to Ferrera.

Lively turned 30 Friday. Her husband trolled her playfully with his Instagram birthday tribute to her, which included a photo of the two in which she is largely cropped out.

His message to her, however, was nothing less than romantic.

“Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,” he wrote.
