Sexual Harassment Has Drastically Reduced In Nollywood – Ruth Kadiri Declares

Ruth Kadiri Ezerika, a top Nigerian actress, has declared that sexual harassment is a phenomenon common among the up and coming actors in Nollywood. According to the mother of one, 80 percent of sexual harassments in the industry take place among people struggling to find their feet. “I don’t think there’s so much sexual harassment anymore. I’m saying this because I’ve grown to a point where nobody can say nonsense to me. But I have my ears to the ground, I don’t have a lot of people coming to me saying this person requested sex for a role, and also because the industry is now female-dominated. These are the reasons I think that sexual harassment has been reduced. I can’t say it has been eradicated because one or two persons will always fall victim and find themselves in th...

Chinatown and Godfather producer, Robert Evans dies at 89

Robert Evans, whose charisma rivaled some of the actors who appeared in the hit films he produced, died Saturday, according to his publicist Monique Evans. He was 89. As a studio head, Evans helped resurrect Paramount Pictures in the 1960s by bringing such projects as "Chinatown," "The Godfather" and "Rosemary's Baby" to the big screen. Evans seemed to epitomize Hollywood excesses with his seven marriages, outspoken nature and freewheeling lifestyle that he documented in his 1994 memoir, "The Kid Stays in the Picture." (The book was later developed into a 2002 documentary film.) "There are three sides to every story: my side, your side, and the truth. And no one is lying," Evans once famously said. "Memories shared serve each one differently." Born in New York City to a dentist and hi...
