STARTALK - Lolit Solis (Pang-masa) - October 20, 2017 - 4:00pm

Hindi nag-iisa si Kris Aquino sa emote nito na nakaranas siya ng depression dahil sa kawalan ng exposure mula nang magbabu sa ere ang television show niya.

Normal ang naramdaman ni Kris dahil dumanas din ng depression ang karamihan sa mga artista na walang regular television program.

Kahit naman ordinaryong tao, nakakatikim ng sobrang kalungkutan kapag nawawalan sila ng trabaho, si Kris pa kaya na bagets pa lang, working na kahit puwedeng-puwede siya na mamuhay nang komportable bilang nakaririwasa sa buhay ang pamilya niya?

Nakaka-relate ako sa dilemma ni Kris dahil privy ako sa personal life ng mga artista.

Academy award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o pumiyok na rin sa PANG mamanyak ni Harvey Weinstein!

Nadagdagan na naman ang listahan ng mga aktres na inaakusahan ng pang-aabuso ang Hollywood movie producer na si Harvey Weinstein.

Lalong nabaon sa kahihiyan si Weinstein dahil sa New York Times article na isinulat ng Academy award-winning actress na si Lupita Nyong’o na magaling palang writer kaya detalyado ang pagkukuwento sa sinapit niya sa kamay ng manyakis na producer. Ito ang bahagi ng testimonya ni Lupita.

“I met Harvey Weinstein in 2011 at an awards ceremony in Berlin, while I was still a student at the Yale School of Drama. An intermediary introduced him to me as ‘the most powerful producer in Hollywood.’

“As an aspiring actress, I was of course eager to meet people in the industry but cautious about strangers, and the intentions of men in general. So I tried to vet this famous producer by asking my dinner-table companions what they knew of him.

“A woman who was a producer herself cautiously advised me to ‘keep Harvey in your corner.’ She said: ‘He is a good man to know in the business, but just be careful around him. He can be a bully,’ ang kuwento ni Lupita tungkol sa first time na pagkikita nila ni Harvey.

Ito naman ang rebelasyon ni Lupita tungkol sa mga ganap nang imbitahan siya ni Harvey sa bahay nito.

“Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not.

“For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times.

“Part of our drama school curriculum at Yale included body work, using massage techniques on one another to understand the connection between body, mind and emotion, and so I felt I could rationalize giving him one and keep a semblance of professionalism in spite of the bizarre circumstance.

“He agreed to this and lay on the bed. I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation. Before long he said he wanted to take off his pants. I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable.

“He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that. ‘If we’re not going to watch the film, I really should head back to school,’ I said.

“I opened the door and stood by the frame. He put his shirt on and again mentioned how stubborn I was. I agreed with an easy laugh, trying to get myself out of the situation safely. I was after all on his premises, and the members of his household, the potential witnesses, were all (strategically, it seems to me now) in a soundproof room.”
