My reaction when seeing the thread title, was the glory days of the casting couch......... I guess nowadays, it's the casting chaise Longue.......

Some of us here are *cough* older members. I'm speaking for myself, and not anyone else.

I don't think that this casting couch phenomena is going anywhere soon.

Found a more recent article for you.

Ashley Judd Opens Up About Hollywood Sexism and Sexual Harassment

She may not be a mega-star, but this sort of thing still exists, that's for sure.

There are tons of rumor about Jennifer Lawrence using casting couch to get mega gigs.

I think at her prime, she was a B star, maybe a B+. She was never A list like Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, etc. I wouldn't have considered her a mega star at the peak of her career, and now she just seems to be fading out.
