Update, 11/2: Jared Leto announced he’s not playing Hugh Hefner in the Brett Ratner-directed biopic and denied any involvement with the film, refuting reports from last month that said he was cast as the founder.The actor's statement arrives shortly after the director was accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, who shared their accounts in a : “Jared Leto is not and was not attached to a Brett Ratner-directed Hugh Hefner film, nor will he be working with him in the future.I want to understand him.' And I really believe Jared can do it. My goal is to do the motion picture as an event." Leto's casting has been in the works for a while – back in April, Ratner invited Leto to the Playboy Mansion for the premiere of Amazon's docuseries American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story, an occasion which also marked Hefner's 91st birthday.Ratner hoped to introduce Leto to Hefner that evening, knowing that he would play him in the film, but due to Hefner's waning health he wasn't greeting guests."There's enough footage on Hef out there that Jared will be able to get as much information as he wants," Ratner said.So here's the part where we all get to wonder nervously if Leto will go method to play Hef, just like he did to play The Joker.The date ended up going horrible and the two never saw each other again, Duff going as far to tell media outlets it was the worst date ever!
Via @nicolascagefans and @lamyaq8In 1987 the odd pair were rumoured to have gotten together after appearing on the 'Moonstruck' red carpet together for the first time. A year ago, the gossip media tried to link the stars in the wake of her split from Brad Pitt.But time has shown Gossip Cop was right to bust the bogus stories.“We find this kind of behavior completely unacceptable.We are putting all further development of our projects with Rat Pac Entertainment on hold until we are able to review the situation further.”Ratner’s lawyer Martin Singer “categorically” disputed the allegations on the director's behalf. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” Singer told the founder, who died last week at 91.Back in the 90's the pair had a fling but before it could turn into a relationship, Madonna's criticism of Jackson on live television resulted in him dumping her! The pair were in a relationship up until Madonna published her book 'Sex' which contained an exploitive photo of her and Ice that he didn't approve of.
