Hollywood is on the verge of collapse.
With the discovery of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual deviances and assaults that has spanned almost four decades, others will soon be exposed as well, like director/writer James Toback.
But one director claims Hollywood is—and has been—involved in an underground pedophilia cover-up as well.
Sexual assault and abuse has always been a part of Hollywood’s DNA.
Chinatown director Roman Polanski was accused of raping an underage girl in the 1970’s, which is why he fled to France like a fugitive.
And what did Hollywood do years later? Celebrate him.
But Academy Award winner Paul Haggis of the movie Crash claims that a covert pedophilia ring has existed for years in tinsel town.
And he’s right according to former-child actors Elijah Wood and Corey Feldman, who both have claimed that fellow child-star Corey Haim was passed around sexually at parties when he was only 8-years-old.
So in the wake of the mass uncovering of these gross Hollywood elite sexual predators, will their pedophilia ring also be exposed?
“Oscar-winning writer-director Paul Haggis suggested Hollywood may be covering up serious allegations of child sexual abuse amid the continued industry fallout from from the scandal surrounding decades of allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse against disgraced super-producer Harvey Weinstein.
In an interview with The Guardian Sunday, the two-time Oscar-winning writer and director of Crash said that while much of Hollywood’s self-examination in the wake of the Weinstein scandal has been about the entertainment industry’s treatment of women, he would not discount the numerous allegations made by former child stars of sexual abuse, including those previously made by Corey Feldman and the late Corey Haim.
“It is not an innocent place and never has been,” Haggis told the paper of Hollywood. “Most of this behaviour has been aimed at women, but I am sure that former child stars such as Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, who have both made allegations in the past that no one took seriously, are worth considering, too.”
“Were people covering for paedophiles, too?” Haggis added. “We have to think that may have happened as well, because no one speaks out about being abused just to benefit their career. I find it particularly terrible that people had their dreams held to ransom in that way.”
Haggis also weighed in on the Weinstein scandal directly, telling the Guardian that a special focus should be placed on those who “may have colluded and protected him.”
“For me, they are as guilty as he is and in some cases more so, if I can say that,” he said. “I mean, he was a predator and a predator is a predator. But what about those who would rather look the other way?”
Accusations of pedophilia in Hollywood have been around for years but have gained increasing scrutiny in the wake of the explosive allegations against Weinstein.
In a May 2016 interview, Feldman — who rose to fame alongside Haim in the 80s, including in films like The Lost Boys and License to Drive — said he would love to “name names” of the industry figures who allegedly abused him as a child, but could not do so for legal reasons. In the wake of the Weinstein allegations, Feldman has said he will not name his abusers in an effort to protect his own family.
In another interview last year, actor Elijah Wood, who also got his start in Hollywood as a child star, claimed that “organized” sexual abuse of children existed in the entertainment industry.
“There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” Wood told the Sunday Times newspaper. “There is a darkness in the underbelly — if you can imagine it, it’s probably happened.”
Meanwhile, Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood suggested just this month that pedophilia in Hollywood will be “the next dam to break.”
Haggis’s interview comes as the number of women accusing Weinstein of sexual misconduct has topped 40, while at least five women have accused the fallen mogul of rape.”
Perhaps the cards will finally fall and expose Hollywood for all its hypocrisy and debauchery once and for all.
