If you don’t know, female cast and crew came forward to support the sexual misconduct claims against the creator of the show with an open letter. Hilarie said one time, Schwahn invited her to listen in on a phone call with a CW exec in his limo. “I’m leaning in listening, and when it’s Dawn Ostroff’s turn to talk, he just leans over and starts kissing me,” Hilarie told Variety. “I push him off, but I can’t say anything because he’s on the phone fighting for our show to stay on the air. I’m just in this position where I’m thinking, ‘You’ve got to take it, Hil. Just laugh it off. You’ll get to Wilmington in 45 minutes.’” Hilarie also detailed another incident at a party after they wrapped filming an episode in Texas.

Sophia Bush & Hilarie Burton Support Sexual Harassment Claims Against "One Tree Hill" Showrunner

Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and the female cast and crew of One Tree Hill are supporting sexual harassment claims against showrunner Mark Schwahn.

The women are stepping forward after writer Audrey Wauchope tweeted about harassment from Mark on the show’s set, without publicly naming him. In her tweets, she accused Mark of inappropriate touching and comments and even showing off photos of his actress girlfriend without clothing. In a statement of support, Hilarie, Sophia and Bethany Joy Lenz say the cast and crew were treated in ways that were “traumatizing” and “downright illegal” and left many feeling manipulated “psychologically and emotionally.” “More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress. Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be,” they wrote. Click inside to read the entire statement… To Whom It May Concern, All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another. To use terminology that has become familiar as thesystemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn’s behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an “open secret.” Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally. More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress. Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be. Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatizing, to downright illegal. And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe. More than one woman on our show had her career trajectory threatened. The through line in all of this was, and still is, our unwavering support of and faith in one another. We confided in each other. We set up safe spaces to talk about his behavior and how to handle it. To warn new women who joined our ranks. We understood that a lot of it was orchestrated in ways that kept it out of sight for the studio back home. We also understood that no one was fully unaware. The lack of action that has been routine, the turning of the other cheek, is intolerable. We collectively want to echo the calls of women everywhere that vehemently demand change, in all industries. Many of us were told, during filming, that coming forward to talk about this culture would result in our show being canceled and hundreds of lovely, qualified, hard-working, and talented people losing their jobs. This is not an appropriate amount of pressure to put on young girls. Many of us since have stayed silent publicly but had very open channels of communication in our friend group and in our industry, because we want Tree Hill to remain the place “where everything’s better and everything’s safe” for our fans; some of whom have said that the show quite literally saved their lives. But the reality is, no space is safe when it has an underlying and infectious cancer. We have worked at taking our power back, making the conventions our own, and relishing in the good memories. But there is more work to be done. We are all deeply grateful for Audrey’s courage. For one another. And for every male cast mate and crew member who has reached out to our group of women to offer their support these last few days. They echo the greater rallying cry that must lead us to change: Believe Women. We are all in this together. With Love and Courage, The Cast, Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Lenz, Danneel Harris, Michaela McManus, Kate Voegele, Daphne Zuniga, India de Beaufort, Bevin Prince, Jana Kramer, Shantel Van Santen, and Allison Munn And Brave Crew, Audrey Wauchope, Rachel Specter, Jane Beck, Tarin Squillante, Cristy Koebley, JoJo Stephens And All the rest of the Women We Worked With Who Are Finding Their Voices as We Speak.....»»

The Female Cast & Crew of "The Royals" Accuse Showrunner Mark Schwahn of Sexual Harassment

Following the news of showrunner Mark Schwahn‘s suspension from the show, the female cast and crew of The Royals are speaking out in a joint statement. The statement, signed by 25 actresses, accuses Mark of “repeated unwanted sexual harassment.” “Despite hearing rumours about his behaviour on One Tree Hill, those of us involved from the [...] Following the news of showrunner Mark Schwahn‘s suspension from the show, the female cast and crew of The Royals are speaking out in a joint statement. The statement, signed by 25 actresses, accuses Mark of “repeated unwanted sexual harassment.” “Despite hearing rumours about his behaviour on One Tree Hill, those of us involved from the early stages went into the filming of the pilot hoping they were just that – rumours. By the time we wrapped this had irrevocably proven not to be the case,” the statement begins. The statement follows the female cast and crew of One Tree Hill issuing a similar statement. Read the full statement inside, via Deadline. Upon reading a statement from the ladies of One Tree Hill, a statement from their Royal sisters could not possibly go unwritten. Despite hearing rumours about his behaviour on One Tree Hill, those of us involved from the early stages went into the filming of the pilot hoping they were just that – rumours. By the time we wrapped this had irrevocably proven not to be the case. It became all too apparent reading their statement earlier this week that the betrayal and anger so many of us had experienced during our time on The Royals is not exclusively ours. And we were angry then, and we are angry now. This statement is a collection of voices from those women involved in The Royals who would like to finally respond to the behaviour of our showrunner. Who felt the inclination to abuse his power and influence in an environment where he had it over women who felt they did not. This manifested itself in the repeated unwanted sexual harassment of multiple female members of cast and crew. Where we should have been excited to meet new female cast and crew members, we felt nauseating concern in case they too should have him track down their mobile number. Where we should have offered our friends who auditioned for The Royals scene help and advice, we offered warnings about the man they would meet in the room. More than all of this, where we should all collectively have felt pride over jobs hard won and roles much loved, we felt undermined as artists and creatives. And in many cases, no more than a sum of body attributes. Whilst voraciously condemning the actions of one man, we would like to make note of our gratitude to others. Thank you to so many of the Royal men who ensured we were never alone in social situations with him and took two steps towards us for his every one. Thank you to the friends, loved ones and partners who supported us at the time and ever more so now in coming forwards. But thank you most of all to the women of One Tree Hill, whose solid gold backbones have moved us enormously. To you we doff our crowns. Kind regards The Ladies of The Royals. Hatty Preston, Sophie Colquhoun, Alex Watherson, Lydia Rose Bewley, April Church, Annalise Beusnel, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Florence Chow, Charlie Jones, Isabella Artitzone, Jade Armstrong, Rachel Walsh, Tania Vernava, Bonnie Vannucci, Merritt Patterson, Kate Benton, Jerry-Jane Pears, Jodie Simone, Kate Royds, Leonie Hartard, Lisa Mitton, Marie Deehan, Alice Woodward, Rachel Lennon, Kimberly Macbeth......»»

Elizabeth Hurley Addresses "The Royals" Creator Mark Schwahn"s Alleged Harassment of Female Co-Workers

Elizabeth Hurley is speaking out in a lengthy statement after the creator and showrunner of her E! series The Royals, Mark Schwahn, was accused of sexual harassment by 25 female cast and crew members of the show.

The actress says that she was unaware of the way Schwahn was treating her female co-stars and says that the news is a “shocking surprise.” Elizabeth released the statement on her Twitter account on Thursday afternoon (November 16). Read below: “I was immensely saddened to read Alexandra Park‘s statement about Mark Schwahn. I have loved working alongside Alexandra and Mark for four years while shooting The Royals, and had absolutely no idea that she was feeling frightened and sexually intimidated by Mark during this time. I have never thought of myself as unobservant, in fact quite the opposite, but I missed this and feel like I have let down a younger cast member. I could have helped her. I would have helped her. But I didn’t know,” the statement began. Click inside to read the rest of the statement… “I have never personally felt scared, intimidated, psychologically manipulated or been the recipient of inappropriate behavior in 30 years of making movies and television. This includes my years working closely with Mark Schwahn. Yes, he flirts and tells risque jokes- but so do I. To hear that there was more than this is a shocking surprise. I never witnessed it. The set of The Royals was a very happy one, full of laughter and fun. Mark was always in the centre of this and it seemed to me that the cast and crew had the most fun when Mark was directing an episode. I feel sick now to hear now that people were unhappy at that time and didn’t dare speak up.” “It’s totally unacceptable for anyone to work in a place in which they feel unsafe. Measures must be put in place in every industry so that anyone who is experiencing intimidation can seek help. As for me, I didn’t see it but will support anyone who is being treated unfairly and do anything I can to ensure any workplace is a safe one. I may have failed Alexandra but it won’t happen again on my watch.” I have loved working on The Royals. I am devastated by recent reports. This is my statement. pic.twitter.com/7c7VCAgPjr — Elizabeth Hurley (@ElizabethHurley) November 16, 2017.....»»

Sophia Bush Says One Tree Hill Showrunner Grabbed Her Ass — And She Hit Him "Fucking Hard"!

We have already heard much — too much — about Mark Schwahn's behavior. The showrunner was fired from E!'s The Royals earlier this year amid a great many accusations of sexual harassment. But before The Royals there was One Tree Hill. In a statement earlier this year Sophia Bush and Hilarie Burton weighed in on their former [...] We have already heard much -- too much -- about Mark Schwahn's behavior. The showrunner was fired from E!'s The Royals earlier this year amid a great many accusations of sexual harassment. But before The Royals there was One Tree Hill. In a statement earlier this year Sophia Bush and Hilarie Burton weighed in on their former boss's behavior. But there's a great story you've never heard. Related: Chad Michael Murray Claps Back At Sophia's 'Ludicrous' Claim She Felt Pressured To Marry Him During a wide-ranging, tea-spilling convo with Andy Cohen for his Sirius XM show, Sophia recalls when Schwahn sexually harassed her -- and her amazing instinctual reaction! She says: "The first time Mark Schwahn grabbed my ass I hit him in front of six other producers. And I hit him fucking hard." Amazing! But sadly this wasn't a TV show, and she didn't get to walk away to a slow clap and never have to think about the jerk again. Schwahn was still the boss. And, as she found out later, he took it out on her in the writers' room: "And he came back to LA and I was told years later by one of the then writers who became an EP that he came back being like, ‘That fucking entitled bitch, who does she think she is?'" At least that writer had her back -- or tried: "And this very sweet man named Mike, who I love and who is like a ride or die for me, was like, ‘Maybe you just shouldn't touch the girls.' And, you know, Mark gave him the option of shut up and keep your job or get out." Sadly, that's how it is in every workplace, isn't it? A little power goes right to these jerks' heads. Related: Sophia's Speech To Her Chicago P.D. Bosses Should Be In A Museum! Or, as Sophia puts it: "I mean look, we're not the only group of girls who have had a boss who is a pig." She says when it came to OTH, "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times" -- the worst thanks mostly to Schwahn: "That show for us was very interesting because at times, it was wonderful, and at times it really wasn't. Our writer's room was in LA, so we had plenty of time where he wasn't on set... So we had sort of highlight-reel, coming-of-age, romcom shit together, and then we also had, like, batten down the hatches, he's coming." Sophia says the hitting incident made it "very clear" she was off-limits, but not everyone was able to get that message across: "We knew when he was super obsessed with one girl on our show that he started trying to bang down her hotel room door in the middle of the night." Gross. You can listen to more from the candid talk (below): [Image via Tony Forte/WENN.].....»»

Sophia Bush Defends Hilarie Burton for Not Attending "One Tree Hill" Convention

Sophia Bush is speaking out to defend her longtime friend and former One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton, who was criticized for deciding not to attend a One Tree Hill convention. Hilarie said that she does not feel comfortable attending the event because she feels the company is exploiting how female cast and crew members [...] Sophia Bush is speaking out to defend her longtime friend and former One Tree Hill co-star Hilarie Burton, who was criticized for deciding not to attend a One Tree Hill convention. Hilarie said that she does not feel comfortable attending the event because she feels the company is exploiting how female cast and crew members from One Tree Hill came forward with sexual harassment allegations against showrunner Mark Schwahn. “I will not be attending any Eyecon events. Ever. I personally feel exploited by their ‘girl power’ angle, which exists at the expense of some of us who went through a difficult time on that show,” Hilarie wrote on Twitter. “They’re using our sisterhood as a sales gimmick. No thanks.” Hilarie then received backlash from members of the EyeCon organization, so Sophia decided to write a lengthy letter in support of her pal. “Hilarie Burton is my sister. Don’t f–k with her. Period,” Sophia wrote with her message. Click inside to read the full letter… Sophia Bush’s Full Letter in Defense of Hilarie Burton “Let’s get real clear, real quick. Hilarie Burton is my sister. She is a big-hearted, brilliant, thoughtful, incredible human. She has had laser sharp, clearly defined integrity running up her spine as long as I have known her. She is a human being. She has feelings. She is entitled to her OWN OPINIONS. She does not make statements hastily. She didn’t say something about a business situation and the way that it was handled that was ‘based on emotion, not logic.’ And the fact that a ‘business organization’ would DARE to say such a thing has a fire burning in me. So let’s get brutally honest. You want to throw a ‘women’s empowerment’ event but bash a woman who said that the way it’s been handled doesn’t feel good to her? A woman whose personal victimization took the world’s stage this past fall? Whose sisterhood circled around her, and each other, to see to it that he be stopped from treating other women in such a way? How. Dare. You. Want to know why Hil said she feels exploited by this ‘empowerment’ con? Well add my name to that hat. Because so do I. We told our stories. As a united front. We refused to let it get tabloidy and gross. And then suddenly a convention publicly announced that they want to empower women? Now, that would have been FINE – lovely, even – IF THEY HAD SPOKEN TO US ABOUT THIS. Had they called our reps and said, ‘as fellow victims in our own individual ways, we want to make the next con all about women, and raise money for women’s charities.’ They did not. Let me repeat. They. Did. NOT. They didn’t ask a single one of us if we’d feel okay focusing a convention, which is dedicated to the show on which many of us were harassed or abused behind the scenes, around those very issues and thus offer an expectation to all fans and attendees that we would be discussing these past violations and focusing on issues that none of us want to be forced to relive in meet and greets and photo sessions. They made an announcement without thinking of any of the women of One Tree Hill for a second. And now they are defending themselves by saying that Mark took advantage of them too? That he ruined their ability to watch a show which felt like their safe space. Well it HAPPENED to us. They are also now saying that because they too have stories from their own lives, they couldn’t have possibly pounced on the business opportunity of capitalizing on our experiences. And my heart breaks for their past pain. But those painful realities are not mutually exclusive from a clear business opportunity. None of those deeply personal experiences of the women behind the scenes of this event will be asked about in Q&As. None of those women will be asked to expand in front of an audience about what MeToo means to them. None of those women will have their past be made fair game fodder without their EXPRESS PERMISSION and CONSENT. Any of us who has spoken about this – in interviews, on panels, at conferences – has been ASKED FIRST. They did not ask us. They announced a deeply personal theme and intention, which revolves in this context, around what all OTH fans know happened to us, without thinking about us at all. And forgive me if it now feels like the claim of charity fundraising is being made to cover this up. (For example, they cited Ian doing a con to raise money for his charity? That didn’t just happen. It was PLANNED. Where was our opportunity to plan any such fundraiser prior to this announcement being made and the expectation that because of the ‘theme’ we would all just be on board?) Don’t even get me started on the reality – which I know for a FACT – that multiple women reported a male guest at these conventions behaving inappropriately and this ‘organization’ did NOTHING. He was invited back multiple times, until more than one of us women was alerted and then jointly said expressly that we would never do another con if he were present. Again. FACT. So. Yes. This feels exploitative. Yes, this feels like a violation. And the fact that a ‘business’ would behave in such a childish and offensive manner as to incite the bashing of an actress sharing her personal opinion about her feelings – the fact that they would stoop so low as to retweet hateful messages about her – or pit victims against one another? I’ve seen fans attacking each other over whose abuse is worse?! This is revolting. REVOLTING. To shame a woman and say she’s ‘emotional not logical?’ I thought that kind of bullsh-t was reserved for mansplaining. And low and behold it’s being done by women. How dare you. Here’s me being logical, listing out facts and your failures to behave professionally with both your statements and your backend communications with us. Here’s me ALSO expressing my emotions of anger and disgust and saying that I’m out. You won’t be seeing me there. I wasn’t going to attend because I too felt icky about the ‘theme’ given the complete lack of conversation about it. But now? Nah. You came for my sister. That’s the most anti-women-support-women action I’ve seen. So yeah. This is me officially saying I’m out too.” .@HilarieBurton is my sister. Don’t fuck with her. Period. Pt. 1 pic.twitter.com/eAf7usSJq4 — Sophia Bush (@SophiaBush) March 29, 2018 .@HilarieBurton is my sister. Don’t fuck with her. Period.
