Any experience shared will be treated in the utmost confidence and with sensitivity. Inappropriate behavior by anyone working at The Old Vic is completely unacceptable. We aim to foster a safe and supportive environment without prejudice, harassment or bullying of any sort, at any level … Any behaviour we become aware of which contravenes these goals will not be tolerated. During Kevin Spacey’s tenure as artistic director no complaints were made against him. No complaints have been made since he left.”

** The Hollywood Gossip claims Jeremy released a statement saying; “I unequivocally deny the appalling allegations being peddled about me. It did not happen.

But he’s determined to have a recording career in America and sees himself as the male answer to Adele.

But despite all that he’s forging ahead.”

 

Bette Midler tells People magazine that she is not excited about Disney remaking Hocus Pocus. “I know it’s cheap. It’s going to be cheap! I’m not sure what they’re going to do with my character. My character is very, very broad and I don’t know who they’re going to find to play that.”
