The 31-year-old tennis player is still in pain from a hip injury, for which he underwent surgery last year. Andy plans on playing in the Australian Open, which begins on Sunday, and he also hopes to play in Wimbledon, though he’s not sure he’ll make it to that. “Wimbledon is where I would like to stop playing but I am not certain I am able to do that,” Andy told reporters at a tearful press conference on Friday (January 11) in Melbourne, Australia. “I’m not sure I can play through the pain for another four or five months.”.....»»

The 31-year-old tennis sensation, who won Wimbledon back in 2013 and again in 2016, posted the upsetting news in a note on his Facebook. “It is with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that I’ll be withdrawing from Wimbledon this year,” Andy wrote. “I’ve made significant progress in practice and matches over the last ten days, but after lengthy discussions with my team, we’ve decided that playing best of five set matches might be a bit too soon in the recovery process. We did everything we could to try to be ready in time.” If you don’t know, Andy underwent hip surgery back in January. Andy continued, “I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I’m looking forward to the US hardcourt season….Thanks for all the messages of support and I’m excited to finally be back playing after so long out.”.....»»

Andy Murray Stands Up For Women in Sports: "We Still Have So Many Issues"

Andy Murray has been vocal about being a feminist in the past but now he’s asking why more men aren’t feminists too!

The 30-year-old tennis pro opened up about women in sports and how he believes that more men should be supporting female athletes. “I just don’t get is why it wouldn’t be something that tennis players are proud of, like, to be the only sport [where the men's and women's game and earnings] are even comparable. That’s positive. We still have so many issues, but it’s something that tennis players should celebrate,” Andy told Elle. Some of the issues he’s seen include the criticism he faced for having a female coach in the past. Andy added, “Some argue, ‘Oh, well, she’s a woman, so she can’t understand the men’s game.’ But then how can a man understand the women’s game? I obviously grew up getting coached by my mum, so I didn’t see any issue. But even I — when I came on the professional tour, there were no men coached by women, so looking for a coach, you assume you’re looking for a man, but when you get older you realize…well, no, it doesn’t have to be that way.” While Andy says there are still issues to be fixed in the divide between men and women’s sports, we’re so glad he’s speaking out about the topic!.....»»

Actresses Accuse CSI Casting Veteran Of Manipulating Aspiring Stars Into Undressing

Another day, another sexual misconduct scandal… On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions. In fact, this behavior got Henry fired from his CSI casting gig and his own firm in 2008, as it was revealed that he used this strategy [...] Another day, another sexual misconduct scandal... On Wednesday, veteran casting associate Andy Henry was exposed by The Hollywood Reporter for manipulating actresses into disrobing during private, paid auditioning sessions. In fact, this behavior got Henry fired from his CSI casting gig and his own firm in 2008, as it was revealed that he used this strategy on up-and-comers seeking costarring roles on the crime drama. Related: Tom Sizemore Dropped From Horror Movie Project Sadly, some women fell for Andy's "coaching technique," as they felt compelled to please him since he was a key way to land entry-level parts. Man, oh man. To make matters worse, since the firing was never publicly disclosed, Henry went on to work on MAJOR motion pictures -- including Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, The Descendants, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Elysium. Tsk, tsk. Thankfully, five women have made the brave decision to come forward to detail their unsavory experiences with Andy. These women became connected thanks to the #MeToo campaign. Understandably, the actresses feel they were preyed upon. And it seems as though Andy thoroughly planned out his manipulation as the ladies' respective encounters with Henry were practically identical. Per the accusers, Henry used the same scene from a 2006 episode of the procedural, where a character struggles with a rare genetic disorder that causes excess hair growth. On meeting the casting professional at Reel Pros, actress Jenny Kern recalled: "His line was, 'It's a really challenging scene and I can tell you can handle it, but it definitely requires more work than what we do here. Do you have any time to stay afterward to push a little harder with [the material]?' I was really flattered." Andy had Jenny perform the scene a few times before suggesting that, in order to achieve "more vulnerability," she should take her bra off. According to Kern, the industry vet became dissatisfied with the situation and "incrementally asked [her] to take [her] clothes off." Jenny eventually complied so that she could get the meeting over with. After manipulating Jenny into her underwear, Andy began to improvise a scene that was highly inappropriate. She continued: "He started saying things, improvising as this detective character: 'I can see your tits,' 'I can see you shave your pussy.' He did it until I finally cried." He ended the meeting by thanking Jenny for her performance. How awful. Tessa Goss had a similar run-in with Andy while at Culver City's acting center ITA. She added: "He prefaced by saying, as he'd playact frustration, running his hands through his hair, 'This is going to seem super-crazy, but don't think it's super-weird.' That he works with actresses all the time. His thing was that [the performance] would feel more authentic if you can feel your nipples against your clothes. I thought, 'I need to get out of here.' But there's also this sick actor part of me that thought, 'I need to get out of here as friends.'" Tessa chose to leave the meeting, as she was pregnant with her third child and not eager to show her baby bump to a stranger. Goss later emailed ITA about Andy's behavior and later received the following reply: "Dear God! Just tell me that no one asked you to disrobe!!!" SMH. Andy's advances left quite the impact on his victims as many began to doubt their talent following the upsetting invitations. Catherine Black, who rebuffed Henry's request at AIA Actor's Studio, shared: "It really planted a seed in my head, that maybe I wasn't good enough. Of, what did I do wrong? It made me feel ashamed." Through AIA, Andy met another victim, whom he allegedly groped. Mandy June Turpin, who claims Henry touched her shoulders and breasts during their session, relayed: "I thought, 'Thank God, somebody said something.' You're afraid to speak up. You're someone without credits. And he went on to work again in the business anyway." Andy also preyed on an intern at the casting firm where he worked, named Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer. Reportedly, Henry offered to give aspiring star Jacqueline Mueller private acting advice back in 2008. Using the same CSI scene, the casting expert advised the intern to take off her bra, a request she followed. When Andy told her to unzip her sweater, Mueller realized the situation had become one of misconduct. Related: Sixth Woman Accuses Roy Moore Of Sexual Assault Jacqueline remembered: "Then he asked me to unzip my sweater. If I'd unzipped it, I would've been topless. I felt disgusted and bamboozled." In order to "loosen" her up, Andy then offered Mueller a glass of whiskey. She quipped: "I don't remember him reaching out to the men in the office to 'help' them." Ugh. Andy has since responded to the allegations with the following statement: "Nine years ago, I tried what I thought was a coaching technique, but which I learned very quickly was foolish and foolhardy. It was brought to light almost immediately, and as you were correctly informed, I was terminated from my employment in 2008 as a result. I was then, and remain to this day, profoundly sorry about these incidents. I took responsibility right away for using nudity as a technique to explore the vulnerability portrayed in a scene, without being cognizant of the potential damage to the human being in the room. I was not aware of the allegations of fondling until now, and do not believe or recall that such a thing happened. I never meant to make anyone feel pressured into doing anything, nor did I ever consciously intend to hurt anyone. My job was gone, my standing in the entertainment community was greatly lowered, and my career options were severely curtailed. I lost my marriage and declared bankruptcy as a result. I was punished for my actions, but I have spent the last nine years rebuilding myself into a person who could never do such a thoughtless and careless thing again. I have formally converted to Judaism, I have dedicated my life to the service of God and to trying to make some repair in this world. And I have striven to live and work every day as honorably and as honestly as possible. I am, again, inexpressibly sorry for the pain that these incidents caused." Looks like someone is REALLY trying to downplay this controversy. Is there a way to fast track his ousting??? [Image via YouTube.].....»»

Andy Dick Hits Back After Being Fired From Indie Movie Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations — "People Are So Sensitive"

Hollywood's war against sexual misconduct is very much on! Andy Dick has learned this the hard way as he has just been fired from the independent movie Raising Buchanan over sexual harassment claims. While The Hollywood Reporter was unable to reach any of the victims for comments, two sources close to the situation detailed the comedian's [...] Hollywood's war against sexual misconduct is very much on! Andy Dick has learned this the hard way as he has just been fired from the independent movie Raising Buchanan over sexual harassment claims. While The Hollywood Reporter was unable to reach any of the victims for comments, two sources close to the situation detailed the comedian's allegedly inappropriate on-set behavior. Related: Rose McGowan Links Arrest Warrant To Recent Activism Efforts According to the insiders, Andy has been accused of groping people's genitals, licking and/or kissing others without consent, and sexually propositioning at least four members of the production. It's currently unknown if those propositioned were Dick's fellow actors or crew members. In an attempt to get control of the story, the 51-year-old industry vet spoke with THR to tell his side of the firing. Although he has intensely denied the groping claim, he has noted that it's "possible" he may've licked people. Oh, and Andy has admitted to coming onto his coworkers on Raising Buchanan. Sadly, these allegations aren't necessarily shocking as Dick has made a name for himself by participating in outlandish comedy. The controversial funny man is VVV aware of his reputation, as he told the publication: "...my middle name is ‘misconduct.' They know what they signed up for." Nonetheless, Andy was vehement that he did NOT grope anyone on the set of the indie flick. He continued: "I don't grope people anymore. I don't expose myself anymore... I do understand that the temperature in the world right now is delicate." Dick is clearly referencing the Harvey Weinstein scandal, which has led to several other prominent men being exposed as predators. Supposedly, Andy antagonized those on the film by bringing up Weinstein in conversations. Per his chat with the mag, the Dancing With The Stars alum implied that he had been defending Harvey -- with whom he has made two films. Andy relayed: "Can I tell you my side of it? They were so incensed by what I was saying. People are so sensitive." For those readings this, word to the wise, it's NOT worth defending Weinstein. We mean, dude is a straight up predator. Other instances may've also contributed to Andy's firing as it's said the comic arrived a day late to production, didn't know his lines, AND brought along a friend who caused issues during filming. Specifically, the pal kept falling asleep and snoring while others filmed. Andy has since confirmed that the friend was his "sober companion," named Paul Ryder. The Happy Mondays bassist said he did not see Andy grope anyone. Related: Spacey Will No Longer Be Honored At The International Emmys On the many accusations listed (above), Dick defended: "I didn't grope anybody. I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That's my thing — I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It's me being funny. I'm not trying to sexually harass people... I didn't grab anybody's genitals,. Of course I'm going to proposition people. I'm single, depressed, lonely and trying to get a date. They can just say no, and they probably did and then I was done." Eh. It isn't "funny" if other people aren't in on the joke. Andy's sobriety was also questioned during production as one of the tipsters said Dick acted as though he was intoxicated. For those who may question Andy's sobriety, he clapped back with: "I overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy (on set). That didn't make me rape people. I really don't get it. I'm always trying to be funny and trying to get a date. I still don't have a date. I am on Tinder and I'm looking." Oof. To make matters worse, Andy attempted to excuse his bad behavior in the exact same way Weinstein did, by blaming his age: "I don't know the difference between sexual harassment and trying to get a date. In the '70s, all the girlfriends I got was by kissing and licking their cheek. I don't know anymore. There were beautiful women and beautiful guys on the set. I flirt with them. I might kiss someone on the set and ask them to go to dinner. They are the ones that took it south." Rather than kissing them up front, ask them to dinner first?? You know, keep your hands to yourself and all of that!! Andy has since promised that if other sexual misconduct allegations come to light, he will retire. Whoa. [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Bill Murray Is A One Man Band When It Comes To Business

Would you believe me if I told you there’s at least one person in Hollywood who doesn’t mix their business life and personal life like some cocktail.

In addition to keeping two separate phone lines, one for business, […] The post Bill Murray Is A One Man Band When It Comes To Business appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Would you believe me if I told you there’s at least one person in Hollywood who doesn’t mix their business life and personal life like some cocktail. Bill Murray is one man in show business that still believes in never letting the tips touch. In addition to keeping two separate phone lines, one for business, one for family, he opted to not take advantage of a publicist, agent, or lawyer to provide him with middleman services. Which is either really noble or really cheap of him. Your only way of reaching Bill is by calling an 800 number and leaving multiple messages. And when Murray calls you back you better be articulate when explaining who you are and why he should care. Murray may have been a mob boss in a past life. Writer-director Theodore Melfi provided an account of what it was like trying to get in contact with Murray to pitch him the lead role in St. Vincent: “Oh god, that story’s so crazy,” Melfi told USA Today in 2014. “The nuts and bolts is [Murray] has no agent and manager, as everyone knows. You just call the 1-800 number. And I left, I don’t know, a dozen messages. It’s not his voice on there. It’s a Skytel voicemail with a menu. You have to record the message and send the message. It’s so confusing.” I wonder how often Bill has to change his 800 number. It seems like a private number that he considers to be so sacred would eventually fall victim to prank calling after an upset director who was turned down posts the number on either Craigslist or a truck stop bathroom with “call me for a good time, love Bill Murray” above it. Nothing can ruin a man’s morning quite like listening to a voice mailbox full of messages from Willie Pfister looking for some discreet fun.

Sophia Bush Claims She Was Pressured Into Marrying Chad Michael Murray

We've always known that the CW casting process is indistinguishable from the sex trafficking fire sale scene in Taken, so it wouldn't be the biggest shocker if execs had such little respect for Bush as a person that they coerced her into marrying Murray in order to generate buzz for the series. The post Sophia Bush Claims She Was Pressured Into Marrying Chad Michael Murray appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   If you read the headline for this post and thought “who?” and “who?” then congratulations. You passed the test. Stage four nobodies will always have a platform to air out drama that nobody cares about as long as screeching gossip-starved homosexual windup toys like Andy Cohen have radio and talk shows. On his Sirius radio fireside shat, Cohan got Bush – who starred alongside Murray on teen sex party channel the CW’s series One Tree Hill – to open up about her five-month-long marriage to Murray: Everybody’s been 22 and stupid. It was not a thing I actually really wanted to do. Ladies have to learn how to take up space in a way men are taught they are entitled to! …How do you let everybody down and how do you- what’s the fight and when you have bosses telling you that you’re the only person who gets a person to work on time and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time. Life is always loaded. What the public knows ever is never- it’s not the tip of the iceberg. Hilarie [Burton] and I used to laugh and we were like, ‘If we had a behind-the-scenes show, the drama would be so much f–king better than the drama that the writers write.’ We’ve always known that the CW casting process is indistinguishable from the sex trafficking fire sale scene in Taken, so it wouldn’t be the biggest shocker if execs had such little respect for Bush as a person that they coerced her into marrying Murray in order to generate buzz for the series. But snippets like “It was not a thing I actually really wanted to do” relinquish Bush of all the blame for her failed marriage and instead pin the blame on both the network and Murray. Who, not surprisingly, released a counter statement through his rep – because you’re definitely famous enough to need a rep, Chad ::wink:: – claiming that Bush is filled to the brim with crap: [The] story is ludicrous. Chad conducts himself in a completely professional manner and would never marry for any reason but love. Thirteen years since his divorce from Sophia, he has a very happy family life with his wife and children. He has completely moved on and doesn’t feel the need to engage in this type of behavior. So, now Bush has been painted as the desperate jilted ex-lover trying to distract from the fact that she’s getting older with fabricated stories about her decade-old marriage. But more importantly, who and who?

Tennis Player Fined For Jerking Off Water Bottle On Live TV

Television producers and the Association of Tennis Professionals apparently didn't get the memo that #loveislove, because after tennis player Nick Kyrgios showed some PDA with his water bottle by jacking it off to completion on live TV, he was fined $23,500.

Racists. With the camera centered on him during a break, Kyrgios can be seen simulating masturbation with his bottle, eventually mimicking ejaculation by squirting. Looks pretty skilled at it. Must have gotten some pointers from Gwyneth Paltrow. Kyrgios is apparently known for his bad boy on-air antics, because nothing screams “rebel” like participating in a snotty boring stupid pussy sport. Earlier in the tournament the twenty-three-year-old Australian said a naughty word for which a BBC announcer had to apologize. This time however, the announcer must have known that he had a runaway viral sensation on his hands, because he chimed in after Kyrgios exploded all over the place: Plenty more where that came from. He was talking both about the station’s coverage of the match as well as Kyrgios’ water jizz. Honestly, I’m all for anything that brings entertainment value to something as mind-numbingly boring as tennis. Plus, this isn’t the most sexual thing to happen on a tennis court by far. That would be Maria Sharapova’s primal grunting that makes it sound like she’s dropping a major lady wad in her undies every time she smacks a big ball around for professional gain. And again we’re back to Gwyneth Paltrow. Crazy.

Second Woman Comes Forward To Accuse Dustin Hoffman Of Sexual Harassment: "It Stayed With Me For A Long Time"

Another woman has accused Dustin Hoffman of sexual harassment. On Wednesday, Variety revealed that TV producer Wendy Riss Gatsiounis had quite the unsavory experience with the celebrated actor back when she was just a struggling playwright.

On Wednesday, Variety revealed that TV producer Wendy Riss Gatsiounis had quite the unsavory experience with the celebrated actor back when she was just a struggling playwright. According to Riss Gatsiounis, Hoffman and Tootsie screenwriter Murray Schisgal expressed an interest in her play, A Darker Purpose, after it had a stage reading in NYC in 1991. Related: Kevin Spacey Lured Teen Into His Bed By "Sobbing" As Dustin and Murray claimed they were eager to adapt the play into a film script, Wendy was more than thrilled to accept the meeting. Sadly, her encounters with the industry vet at his Punch Productions office were less than professional. Allegedly, the then 53-year-old propositioned the 20-something up-and-comer and invited her to a nearby hotel. Ugh. While Hoffman's people declined to comment on the story, Schisgal told the publication: "Dustin Hoffman and I took many meetings with writers and playwrights over many years. I have no recollection of this meeting or of any of the behavior or actions described." Just because you forgot about it, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Per Riss Gatsiounis' account, Murray was the one who first made things uncomfortable when he asked about her relationship status. Wendy recalled: "Dustin Hoffman was playfully like, ‘Murray, shut up. Don't you know you can't talk to women that way anymore? Times are changing.'" The collaborators then shifted the conversation back to business and asked the playwright to rework her pitch. She obliged and, three weeks later, returned with a revised draft. Unfortunately, Wendy never got to discuss her idea with the industry heavyweights: "I go in, and this time it's, like, Dustin Hoffman's really different. He says, ‘Before you start, let me ask you one question, Wendy — have you ever been intimate with a man over 40?'" The accuser attempted to laugh off the proposition, but Hoffman persisted on the topic. She continued: "I'll never forget — he moves back, he opens his arms, and he says, ‘It would be a whole new body to explore.' I'm trying to go back to my pitch, and I'm trying to talk about my play. Then Dustin Hoffman gets up and he says he has to do some clothing shopping at a nearby hotel, and did I want to come along? He's like, ‘Come on, come to this nearby hotel.'" Ew, ew, ewwwww. Reportedly, Murray encouraged Wendy to go with Dustin: "I'm just completely flustered. I don't know what to make of this whole thing. And Murray's like, ‘You can go! It's okay, go! Go!'" Schisgal sounds like some creepy wingman. After declining the invitation many times, Wendy remembered: "And Dustin Hoffman finally leaves, because I'm saying I don't want to go to the hotel. And then Murray Schisgal says, ‘Look, we're not really interested in your play, because it's too film noir-ish.' And that was it." Simply despicable. Understandably, Wendy left the meeting "close to tears" and called her agent, the late Mary Meagher. Upon learning what had happened to her client, Mary assured Wendy it wasn't anything the writer had done as she "had heard rumors about him for years." Two friends close to Riss Gatsiounis verified her version of what went down. On how the incident stayed with her, Wendy explained: "The whole thing was just a source of torment for me. I was just this writer and he had been my hero, and it stayed with me for a long time... It was one voice in my head saying, ‘I was such an idiot. I should have just gone.' And the other voice in my head saying, ‘Well, clearly he just wasn't interested [in the play]. Why don't you just realize he just wasn't interested?'" Poor thing. Although Wendy stayed quiet about Dustin for some time, she felt the Harvey Weinstein scandal made it possible for her to speak her truth. This is the second harassment claim to come out against the Rain Man star. Earlier this week, actress Anna Graham Hunter claimed Dustin harassed and assaulted her on the Death of a Salesman set when she was a 17-year-old intern. We couldn't be prouder of these women for speaking up. [Image via IPA/WENN.].....»»

We thought we’d take a moment to highlight the young star so America can get to know him before watching him on screen. Here’s some fun facts about Andy… 1. Over 350 young kids were considered for the role of Ralphie after Telsey and Company had an online search for the role. They were apparently looking for a “regular kid” to take on the iconic role from the Christmas movie 2. “If I got this role, it would be the greatest, most awesome Christmas present I’ve ever gotten in my life,” Andy said before landing the role. Andy also told producers he was a big fan of the movie when he auditioned. 3. Andy has been interested in acting for a while now. “When I was really young my mom signed me up for a theater camp, where we worked on singing and dancing and performing Peter Pan, and that was when I realized that I wanted to be on stage or on camera all the time,” Andy told Broadway Box. 4. He’s learned a lot through this rehearsal process. “I’ve learned so much from the [veteran actors in the production], they’re absolutely amazing to work with. This is my first musical performance, and I’ve learned how to work hard during long days of rehearsals, and try to do my very best, but still how to be relaxed and have fun and take care of my voice all at the same time,” Andy told Broadway Box about the rehearsals. 5. Andy had such a sweet reaction to learning he landed the role of Ralphie – and it was all caught on video! Watch below….....»»
