Timothy Hutton Accused of Rape

-Late this afternoon, Buzzfeed published an interview with Sera Johnston, a Canadian ex-model who claims actor Timothy Hutton and his friend raped her in 1983 when she was 14 and they were in their 20s. Buzzfeed spoke with a friend she told only a few days after the night in question, Johnston’s mother, and three more friends. They all, separately, confirmed that she told them the actor had raped her in his hotel room. Before he died, her ex-stepfather also told an investigator that Johnston had told him it was “flat out rape.” Hutton “completely and unequivocally denies” Johnston’s allegations. After being informed that BuzzFeed News was going to publish the story, the actor spoke with the FBI — according to his spokesperson, to report Johnston for attempted extortion.

I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it…And I’m reading all the articles, and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. Could this happen?’ And then it didn’t, and I was like, ‘Ouch.’ It was a little bit of a letdown…Most of my team has been with me for years — 20, 25 years — and I think they had a lot of hopes on that. They wanted it, too. I felt like I let everybody down a little bit.”

Howard Stern got Harry Styles to break his silence on getting robbed at knifepoint last month. He said a group of guys with their hoods up approached him and demanded cash, and then told him to unlock his phone and give it to them. “I thought about throwing it in the pond to just be like, ‘Neither of us have it.’ Then I thought, ‘I don’t want to piss them off’. There were, like, two cars coming, and I just felt an opportunity and I just sprinted and ran. I ran into the road and I tried to stop a car…[Then I] turned and ran toward the village where I live…I guess because they had some cash and stuff they ended up just turning around.”

John Boyega complaining while working out with his trainer is oh so relatable. “I could have been an architect, Tim! I’d be fat, have man tits, big little nipples, and a lovely wife who loves me for who I am. That’s what I should have done. This is what ambition gets you.”

Sandra Bullock Grills Jennifer Aniston For Interview

Jennifer Aniston Sandra Bullock

Jennifer Aniston was interviewed by Sandra Bullock, and they dug into the Friends star’s uneasy childhood (“Growing up in a household that was destabilized and felt unsafe, watching adults being unkind to each other, and witnessing certain things about human behavior made me think: ‘I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to experience this feeling I’m having in my body right now. I don’t want anyone else that I ever come in contact with ever to feel that'” ), and their shared exes (“We both partook of Tate [Donovan]”). The best part of it is Bullock’s jokey admonishments (“Jennifer, I’m asking you. I’m the interviewer. Don’t ask me questions. You are to respond. Let’s just stick to the protocol” and “You’re just talking too fucking much, Jennifer. Pipe down”).

Actually, I love monogamy too”), and says he’s not into one-night stands (“Dude, you ever actually have one? Ninety percent of the time, they’re not good”).
