my reaction to this was literally "disappointed, but not surprised". i'm not gonna lie this was a hard one to read bc LVT is/was/idk prob my fave director ever, and while i already knew he was a piece of shit human being i mostly believed he was an edgy fuck who sought controversy on purpose. but this really killed it.

anyway. Björk is brave af for coming forward. <3

It's Lars Von Trier. He even harassed Nicole Kidman on the set of Dogville. Nicole did not feature in the sequel for the movie for a reason. Eva Green decided not to work with him due to his incessant harassment. This is what Deneuve had to say about their shooting experience: “I’m pretty surprised; I know, because she’s told me, that she’s suffered a lot and that Lars has constantly pushed her beyond her limits,” Ms. Deneuve wrote in her set diary, excerpted in her 2005 book “Close Up and Personal.” “Why didn’t she ever say ‘No,’ or ‘That’s enough’? Lars Von Trier makes great movies but he is known to put his actresses through hell and back.

lol like that would have helped. Lars put everyone against Bjork, and he made her gain a fake reputation of being "difficult to work with". Nothing she has said would have stopped him and no one would have believed her anyway.

if there's something i will never understand is why so many directors - well known and probably not that successful either - insist on putting actresses through insane amounts of stress. on top of my head i can think of kubrick, LVT, hitchcock, kechiche... do they think they will perform better? and if so, how on earth does any professional ever perform better out of being absolutely terrified? it just reads as sadism.
