Hollywood Hinted at Charlie Rose’s Behavior in ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’
Charlie Rose allegedly harassed up to 8 women between the early 1990s and 2011 according to a report made by the Washington Post. The revelations were revealed Monday, with multiple female employees claiming they were groped by the 75-year-old newsman. This came during a time when Charlie Rose rose to power in the television news business.
Right in the middle of that period was the release of the 2001 Noah Baumbach directed film ‘The Royal Tenenbaums.’ The film contains a scene where 24-year-old Margot Tenebbaum (played by Gwyneth Paltrow) has her breasts groped by TV host Peter Bradley (played by Larry Pine), whose character is based on Rose.
What is also strikingly revealing from the film is the strong resemblance the Bradley character has to Charlie Rose. The groping scene, which is part of a montage of Margot Tenenbaum reliving her past, portrays a disgruntled TV host who takes advantage of a rebellious and confused young adult.
The allegations, nevertheless, are shocking due to Rose’s soft and genuine demeanor during in-depth interviews with big names on his long running PBS forum and segments on 60 minutes. Rose’s contract has been terminated by both CBS and PBS.
Rose joins a growing list of powerful names in the news and entertainment industry that have been disgraced for inappropriate and nonconsensual behavior against women.
