Famous Movie Stars Use Skin to Select People For The Casting Couch

The Times of India reports 

Hollywood too has its history of couching tigers and hidden dragons. Only, nobody screams about it since it’s seen as part of biz. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Don Johnson, Steven Seagal may be just a handful of Hollywood celebrities who have been accused of sexual harassment in the recent past.

According to Kevin Brownwing, a film historian who wrote a book on the Hollywood sex pests (The Golden Grope – A History of Hollywood Harassment), the couch can be traced back to the silent era itself. To the venerable Charles Chaplin himself who, he writes, was probably the first prominent star to institutionalise the couch as an ‘official’ mode of selection.

Writes Brownwing: “Apparently, Charles would only communicate with the actress he was auditioning via caption cards and mime, supposedly to test their ability to ‘perform’ in silent movies. The cards would become ever more lewd and suggestive as he got them to undress, and he would fondle their breasts in an exaggerated silent movie acting manner… eventually, he would get them to stand naked and throw custard pies at them…”

And the selection process? He would insist they perform entirely in mime and if they cried out (as they inevitably did), he would tell them they had failed the audition!

Brownwing further talks about Clark Gable who had to engage in oral sex with fellow MGM player William Haynes to establish himself at the studio and John Wayne who would ‘test’ young bewildered hopefuls by appearing before them clad only in a Stetson and a pair of pearl-handled Colt.45s holstered in his gunb”


I guess there was some scandalous things you had to do to get a role.  Personally, would I like to suck a dick or wear my underwear in a homoerotic way in order to get a studio? The answer is no because I am not into the homoerotic thing, but I guess if desperate to get a break in Hollywood, you will do anything to get a role.
