Kevin Spacey’s first accuser was inspired to go public by others

Published

on

When actor Anthony Rapp alleged in October that Kevin Spacey made an unwanted sexual advance on him when he was 14, he was inspired to do so by the dozens and dozens of women who spoke up about sexual abuse and misconduct before him, he revealed to the magazine Attitude.

Amidst the unending amounts of allegations being made against men in Hollywood, media, and beyond, Rapp spoke up with accusations against Spacey, saying that Spacey put Rapp on a bed, got on top of him, and made an advance in 1986 when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26.

After that accusation from Rapp, Spacey then publicly came out as gay and was accused of sexual misconduct by several more people. As he likely inspired others by going public with his accusations, Rapp himself was inspired by those who spoke up before him, he told Attitude.

“In this moment, with what’s happened, it’s become clear that people can be believed and that it can have an impact,” Rapp told Attitude. “The entire apparatus that kept people silent and also kept [those guilty of harassment] safe is being dismantled.”

After more allegations came out against Spacey, Netflix cancelled House of Cards, stating that the show’s upcoming sixth season would be its last and would not include Spacey. Spacey was also replaced by a different actor in the upcoming Ridley Scott film All the Money in the World.

Rapp also said that powerful people facing consequences for their predatory actions is positive for not just Hollywood but for other industries too.

“That’s the big sea change, and I hope that it’s occurring not just in our industry, but everywhere and that people are realizing that these things can have an impact, that people do not have to be able to get away with it,” he told Attitude. “To be part of a movement that I think will make a real lasting difference is something that’s bigger than any individual, it’s really a time of reckoning that will transform our industry, and I hope other industries.”

Rapp added that he hopes nobody feels alone when going through something similar to what he and others have gone through, and that there are people who will back you up.

“There is no such thing as truly being alone, which is what I hope this moment demonstrates, that there is strength in numbers,” Rapp told Attitude.

Corporate Astrology: A whole new aspect of the Business of Stars…

Published

Celebrity astrologer Sundeep Kochar talks about how the faith of corporate sector in astrology has given birth to a new branch of reading the stars

You must have heard about people seeking astrologers’ advice regarding their personal issues. But did you know that major league industries and firms, too, seek astrologers’ advice? Well, you read that right. The faith of corporate sector in astrology has given birth to a new form of astrology – corporate astrology.

Though astrology has been more profusely used by the Bollywood stars before signing the contract of any new movie project, corporates in recent times also want to stay away from any risk in this intensely competitive world. “This is the chief reason why they have started looking for the guidance and the influence of the planets,” Dr Kochar stated without revealing any names from his clientele in both film fraternity & corporates.

“Seeking astrological advice before taking any important decision or embarking upon an important journey has been a tradition in India since the Vedic period. In ancient India, emperors used to have a council of astrologers. It was this council they consulted before bringing major policies into action or waging a war against their enemies,” pointed out Dr Sundeep Kochar.

He continued, “The big business houses which are thriving today are no less than emperors themselves. After all, they are ruling the markets worldwide. The way astrology used to be perceived has also undergone a transformation. It is now considered as a science, and this has contributed a lot in cementing business community’s belief in it.”

Celebrity astrologer Sundeep Kochar believes that special astrological positions present a set of unique opportunities to both individuals as well as corporate houses. Elaborating further, he said, “Mercury is the planet of finance and Venus is the planet of luxury. A favorable alignment of both these planets creates golden opportunities in business. These opportunities, if utilized properly, can not only safeguard the company’s existing portfolio, but can also optimize the future investments.”

Many Indian and international clients of Dr. Sundeep Kochar seek ‘Corporate Astrology’ not only for their partnerships, mergers and tie-ups, but also take inputs of astrology before hiring key people in their organization. “It looks like in the coming years the job applicant has to attach his horoscope along with the resume to set his stars aligned with the company,” Dr Kochar chuckled.

Dr Sundeep Kochar firmly believes and professes that there is no shortcut to success. According to him, astrology is just a tool which helps a person take on the most favorable path. However, the result of one’s endeavors solely depends upon the amount of hard work being poured in and taking right decision at the right time.

He was quick to remind a famous quote of J.P Morgan, “Anyone can become a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need a good astrologer.”
