Model accuses Harvey Weinstein of "molesting" her

Italian model Ambra Battilana claims that Harvey Weinstein groped her in his office.

The two exchanged e-mails to set up an audition at Weinstein’s office the next day, sources said.
:banana:

Shockingly, according to reports, she didn't tell the police about this heinous crime for several days:

That’s because during that time, Battilana and her manager were working behind the scenes with one of Weinstein’s top aides to “cut a deal” to get her into one of his movies, sources said.

So is Weinstein a lecherous old bastard, or is this a shake-down from a fledgling starlet? I would hope that he is savvy enough, and has no shortage of tail throwing itself at him should he choose to partake, to avoid putting himself in this type of situation. Then again, if this is just the way things work in Hollywood, maybe someone in Harvey Weinstein's position could lose all compunction over the years and figure that he's above embarrassment or other consequences. Lack of game recognized, or just an inevitable pitfall for someone in his position?

In any event, assuming that the story is B.S., only good will come out of it for the girl. She would never be punished for defaming Mr. Weinstein, and has now exponentially increased her visibility. (I had never heard of her before, but then again I wouldn't have.) If her objective is a more famous life than simply getting banged by Russian oligarchs on yachts in St. Tropez, she'll probably achieve that by virtue of her newfound celebrity.

For the record:

So we can guess that she didn't get the job then.

It must have been so hard for her to contain her outrage while she waited to find out if she would be in one of his films.

This must be one unlucky girl, finding herself in situation after situation where she is taken advantage of by rich and powerful men. She must have read The 40 Laws of Power because she knows how to position herself.

Weinstein Accuser Ambra Battilana Gutierrez Sued Italian Magnate ‘Mr. G’ and Berlusconi for Sex Abuse

In her native Italy, this young model took two alleged lechers to court for sexual improprieties. Now she’s told police that one of Hollywood’s biggest moguls groped her, too.

It's telling that she tried leveraging the alleged incident to land her an acting gig. Sounds like a genuine victim of a traumatizing crime. The folly of men is seeing such a young, beautiful and innocent looking face and instantly believing what she says, throwing all caution to the wind. Who knows, maybe she really is at the wrong place at the wrong time. But I doubt it.

Fucking hell. She is hot. Now I understand why some guys on the forum love the Philippines.
 
Look usually I'd call "sounds fake" on articles of this kind, but this is Harvey Weinstein we're talking about, a movies and media mogul in Hollywood. You really think he hasn't groped himself a young actress here and there? Just look at him!

Article is true, which isn't saying all that much because this is standard practice in Hollywood

Short hair. Boyish face. Damn it, what's wrong with Hollywood starlets nowadays? Still, I suppose........

Fucking A - if a powerful Hollywood producer cannot fuck his prospective actresses, then even Hollywood is going to shit.

Also we have to keep in mind, who this "model" really is:

par7619015.jpg


In 2011, Battilana and another beauty queen testified about a sex party at Berlusconi’s apartment.
At the time, Berlusconi was on trial for allegedly having sex with underage prostitutes at one of his orgies, which often took place in his “bunga bunga room.”

So she is essentially an escort and potential Porta-Potty. Like tens of thousands of other girls she wanted to up her "career" and become an actress. Like millions before she would have only managed to suck off a producer and gotten a minor or more or less major role for it at best.

Funny that her first lawyer instantly retracted when he found out that an escort is going to hire him to piss off a powerful Hollywood producer - if you piss on one, you have pissed on all of them.

Sources said her former lawyer, seasoned criminal-defense attorney Mark Jay Heller, withdrew from the case because he was uncomfortable with Battilana’s behind-the-scenes shenanigans and the fact that she did not appear to be a “serious victim.”

Also Weinstein barely grabbed her breasts and wanted to kiss her. She ran off and then went to the police who called him and taped the conversation. That is as fucking sneaky as can be! A bunga bunga orgy with Berlusconi and his buddies is fine, but sucking off a producer for a real role is not?

Her career is over - no one ever ever ever will hire her in the movies again. Do you ever wonder why there are so few sexual harassment suits in Hollywood, where fucking for roles has been the standard practice since the very beginning? There are some movie actresses who made their careers that way - this is the original "casting couch".

The reason for the lack of law suits is that those guys are super-powerful. They are the equivalent of suing the CIA, NSA or the president personally. Unless that escort is acting on someone else's orders and is allowed to take down Weinstein, because he pissed off someone more powerful, then I expect that "model" to end up dead, ruined or retracting her story.

She has an Instagram account and would fit the TagTheSponsor profile, but her clients are likely more up-scale than sheiks. Also she is not stupid and does not post her on travels alone - couples it with legit sounding campaigns and thus does not eliminate totally marriage worthiness.

Still that step now is a career killer unless she gets protection and 10 mio. $ paid by someone else.

This was not her first lawsuit - she already sued another rich man, who definitely paid her for sex (while she was barely a minor) and also Berlusconi and co. :

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articl...agnate-mr-g-and-berlusconi-for-sex-abuse.html
This wasn’t Battilana’s first unfortunate incident. During cross-examining at the Berlusconi trial, it was revealed that when Battilana was still a minor, she sued a 70-year old businessman for sexual assault. The man admitted to a relationship but considered it consensual, counter-claiming that he instead paid her handsomely with jewels, a car, and even expensive tanning cream when she was a contestant in the Miss Italy pageant. The unnamed man, referred to as Mr. G. in the Italian press, told Il Giornale, owned by Berlusconi’s family, that he suspected Battilana had become a “jolly” for the prosecutor, effectively accusing her of turning states evidence to avoid charges. She denied those claims.

“I have no reason not to believe what she is saying is true,” Bugnano said. “She told me the whole story about what happened and she went to an interview arranged by her modeling agency and he touched her breasts and tried to lift her skirt. She was very bothered by the incident. She went to the police to denounce him. Now she is cooperating fully.”

Battilana posted a series of sayings among the gorgeous selfies on her on her Instagram page. They include, “Be real and always honest” and “There is no good sex without love.” At the top of her page she aptly advises, “Don’t stop dreaming just because you had a nightmare.”

Darling - your dream is over. You have sued now 3 powerful men. Knowing that I would never even invite her for a casting - that bitch can sue me for looking at her. Her career for anything else but a porta-potty is over.

Lets be honest here. If she can't get money one way she is going the other route and that involves burning bridges. But there will always be rich guys willing to pay for her in some way so whether she gets burned in this or not its redundant. She will always be better off due to her looks.

Looks what they call "the casting couch" + combination of BPD and crazy scheming Filipina wiles run amuck.

When you keep suing people for the same thing over and over, you end up losing. I saw it where plaintiffs would sue every employer they worked for or applied to for discrimination, or get bounced out of bars and then sue them for assault and battery, or the well-known one of loading up a car with four people and slamming on the brakes to cause a rear-end collision.

Any time you get sued, check the civil docket for the plaintiff's past cases, and get the criminal record, too.

Line of the day. Off topic, but...

This stuck out to me because it happened to me recently, not in a bad accusation way, but simply overestimating the 'sweet innocence' of a young 22 year old chic. Not that she wasn't innocent and sweet, but me as a young mr nice guy was more nice innocent naive and sweet as any hot chic out there, prob bc I thought I had to be.

Women are never as innocent, naive, or sweet as they seem.

She must be unstable if she keeps burning bridges. You don't sue the groper in Hollywood until after your Carear is launched and you have several popular movies underway. Although that still could backfire at that point as well. I bet she was leading him on too. A HoeFax would have been great for him too.

Even if she gets out of this on top she's now poison in Hollywood. No male producer/director will want to have anything to do with her. A good example of short-term gains ruining long-term prospects.

No doubt. I'd make sure I had someone with me every time we interacted and filmed it, which seems to be the direction we're headed anyway.

There are criminal charges pending and a phone call recorded by the NYPD:

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york...n-alleged-assault-weinstein-article-1.2171945

No charges have been filed in last Friday’s incident inside Weinstein’s Tribeca office, although the investigation — now led by a top sex crimes prosecutor — continues.

Weinstein’s camp has insisted he never made inappropriate contact with the 22-year-old model.

But The News reported the Oscar-winning producer never denied the charges during a post-incident phone call with Battilana as the NYPD listened in.

“The content of the phone call, there’s no question about what he did,” a source familiar with the call told The News.

Hmm, silence in the face of accusation is an iffy question in evidence.

But since this is New York and Cyrus Vance, Jr. is the DA, he will not be charged. Vance is the one who let Dominique Strauss-Kahn walk in the face of what I think was a very credible charge by that hotel maid.

If it was the Lower East Side tailor Harvey Weinstein vs. model Ambra Gutierrez, Weinstein would be in jail now.

At the highest levels of anything where money is involved, the establishment of trust is key. She failed and wont get shit but a destroyed career.

No need to overrate this bitch. She is a fuckable slut but no more than that, nothing to write home about. She is no kind of 9 or 10.

Her mug in black and white resembles a poor boy in a bad neorealist de Sica film:

And you see a lot of her true fishface here:

Her body is alright but nothing really special.
