[Blind Gossip] At a Golden Globes party, there was an interesting discussion that took place among a few Hollywood executives.
It wasn’t about nominations or fashion or speeches. It was about one of their own.
According to a key executive, there is one word that is heavily influencing the defense of this Hollywood movie bigwig.
They were saying that almost every victim used the same word to describe [Bigwig] and his crimes, and his attorneys know they have to blunt the connection the jury makes between that one word and [Bigwig].
Can you guess what that word is?
Industry power. And physical power.
He is always described as a “power player.” Almost all the victims say that he held the “power” in their relationship, that he is one of the most “powerful” people in Hollywood, that his body size is “big and powerful”, and that he physically “overpowered” them.
His team is betting that the other side will use that word over and over, beginning with their opening statement.
So, what is his team’s strategy?
They decided they couldn’t diminish his career or his influence in any credible way, but they could make him look physically weaker.
That’s why the suddenly thinner and frail appearance. They hope that the jury looks at him and doesn’t think of him as being physically big and powerful or able to overpower anyone.
Guess we’ll see soon enough if that part of their strategy is effective!
