    I have personal knowledge of this affair and Lainey was only half correct btw.
    This story is really hitting the fan around here.
    Hi, JBake. I'm wondering what parts of it Lainey got wrong compared to what you know. Or if she just doesn't have the whole story.

    That's what old Hollywood was all about. Seems to be still going on.

    Here is the 1998 Vanity Fair cover of Gretchen:




    APRIL 1998: “THE HOT NEXT WAVE” Joaquin Phoenix, Vince Vaughn, Natalie Portman, Djimon Hounsou, Cate Blanchett, Tobey Maguire, Claire Forlani, Gretchen Mol, Christina Ricci, Ed Furlong, and Rufus Sewell.
    Annie Leibovitz - Fashion Forum

    This is also supposedly a memo from Harvey to Miramax executives. It's crap, but it does hint about Gretchen here:

    Ham. Pie. Gretchen Mol. That's what this business is all about.

    And an April 2006 record of how Gretchen got the Vanity Fair cover:
    Gretchen Mol Turns the ‘Page’

    That letter Harvey wrote makes him sound worse than I previously thought and pretty much confirms that Mol had been involved in this behavior before (and he manages to out John Cusack for using cocaine at the same time, although that's not so much a shock).

    I do feel bad for Mol because I think this happens so, so often and she's being put out front and center as the postergirl for it. I would say almost all young actresses have to participate in this to get ahead in Hollywood, it's unfortunate that they're outing Mol who never really got a break anyway. Now this is what she'll be known for for the rest of her career.

    This is an interesting article from 2004. You get an idea of what young women will do for a movie role.

    She has always claimed that she loves Gwyneth.

    Harvey is a disgusting pig. I've read that Tom Cruise's character, Les Grossman, in Tropic Thunder was an "obscene parody" of Harvey Weinstein, but I'm thinking now that it was actually mild.

    One day it will all come back to him. Maybe he'll have a massive coronary while screwing his latest starlet.

    Makes you wonder how many A-listers went the casting couch route?

    This may be a little off-topic but I wonder what the eff Nicole Kidman did to piss off Lainey? I haven't read Lainey in ages, but as I recall she was always ranting about Nicole's alleged fake pregnancy, her alleged contract marriage, and finally, her plastic surgery.
    Who says being second best is such a bad thing?

    Gah! But we all want to know. Can you hint? Give it to us in the form of a blind item? Anything?

    Re: Kidman, my impression is Lainey hates the hypocrisy of some of the actors. Paltrow is a snooty bitch but doesn't really pretend otherwise or play the paparazzi game as much. She appears to dislike the games Kidman (allegedly) plays, much like Biel et al when it comes to whining about paparazzi but using them when it's convenient.

    Or maybe Kidman ran over her dog.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    From Lainey 01/04/10

    PS. Casting Couch is not about Ali Larter or Monica Potter (good one) or Woody Allen.

    Gretchen is actually much more attractive and talented than Blake Lively, and Weinstein is a pig.

    Oh, and Lainey is a bitch.
