Are you fucking kidding us with this??

Emmy Rossum, award-winning actress and star since her breakout role as the lead in The Phantom Of The Opera in 2004, was asked to audition in a damn bikini. For real.

Video: Early A-Lister Audition Tapes

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter as part of their comedy actress roundtable, the Shameless star recounted the horrible story of Hollywood sexism:

"As recently as a year ago, my agent called me and was like, 'I'm so embarrassed to make this call, but there's a big movie and they're going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There's no audition. That's all you have to do.'"

Red flag, girl.

The worst part? It wasn't even like she was playing a bikini-clad character in the movie! It was just the director's sexist whim! She eventually found out:

Those Big Little Lies Abuse Scenes Really Affected Nicole Kidman: 'I Went Home And I Threw A Rock Through A Glass Door'

no title

A person can only take so much abuse.

The same goes for an actor playing a victim of abuse — eventually, that emotion has to come out!

That's what Nicole Kidman learned filming Big Little Lies, when she had to unleash some pent up rage after shooting a humiliating and traumatizing abuse scene in her underwear.

Speaking on The Hollywood Reporter's Drama Actress Roundtables with Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Chrissy Metz, Jessica Lange, and Elizabeth Moss, Kidman revealed that filming one scene in the HBO miniseries took a big toll on her.

When the table was discussing what it's like on set filming dark scenes involving rape or abuse, the 49-year-old recalled carrying the emotion with her once she left set — and ended up throwing a rock through her hotel window!

The actress covers The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, and talks about her mega popular new film La La Land, very hesitantly addressing the possibility that she might win a Best Actress Oscar for her role as an aspiring actress who falls in love with a jazz pianist.

The interview is definitely worth a read, but the accompanying video where Emma answers questions from a bowl is probably the best part!

You also get to see a clip of the 28-year-old during her audition for In Search of the Partridge Family (she sings Meredith Brooks' Bitch!) and the aforementioned Ryan Gosling impression.

Mel Gibson is defending his fellow controversial celeb.

For those of you who may not remember, filmmaker Nate Parker was accused of rape back when he was still a student at Penn State.

While on trial for the alleged sexual assault, a jury ultimately acquitted the artist.

However, the story resurfaced this year, when his film The Birth Of A Nation was released. Many people called for a boycott of the film, but the 60-year-old is now saying that is "unfair."

In The Hollywood Reporter's Directors Roundtable, Mel stood up for the 37-year-old, exclaiming:

Megyn Kelly's 'High Hopes' For Donald Trump Earn Her A Middle Finger From Kathy Griffin!

no title

It's the most important feud of the day!

When Megyn Kelly was invited to speak at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Women in Entertainment breakfast this year, she probably didn't expect to find herself in yet another feud.

Unfortunately for the Settle for More author, that's exactly what happened on Wednesday when she used her platform to give President-elect Donald Trump just a bit too much praise!

For some reason, Megyn had mostly only positive things to say about the sexist businessman at the otherwise fundamentally feminist gathering… which clearly left a bad taste in fellow guest Kathy Griffin's mouth.

In fact, the Celebrity Run-Ins writer was so disgusted by the FOX News anchor's "high hopes" for the racist Republican that she actually flipped her off right in the middle of her speech!

So what exactly did Megyn say to spoil Kathy's breakfast??

Ryan Murphy Spills The Tea On Working With The 'Relentlessly Homophobic' WB On His First TV Show! See What He Said!

no title

Ryan Murphy is one of the biggest titans in television right now, and can pretty much get any show made exactly how he envisions it.

But that definitely wasn't the case over a decade ago, when the producer sold his first TV series to The WB (pre CW) and had an extremely "miserable experience"!

Before the days of Glee and American Horror Story, Murphy had pitched his high school dramedy series Popular — about an awkward high school girl forced to live with a popular cheerleader after their parents get engaged — to different networks and "ended up going with The WB."

Though the series became a cult hit after only two seasons from 1999 to 2001, the writer blames constant battles he had with network executives on the show's cancellation.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the 50-year-old said he wasn't a fan of working with the "relentlessly homophobic" executives who suggested he make his characters "less gay," confessing:
