I'd heard the rumor. You hear a lot of rumors. But there are certain people you were told not to say ill of, and Kirk Douglas and Roman Polansky are two.

That "you are not to say ill of" culture of Hollywood is pretty much what #metoo was about.

Yeah.

This is one of the reasons I don't like working in Hollywood. Show me an icon and there's fair-to-middlin' odds I can show you a horrific story attached to them. Show me a star whose shine faded and they went to go do something quiet and I'll show you where the bad man touched them.

The project was probably Vikings.
