There is a fine line that can be hard to establish for people who are just trying to date or start a relationship with someone who they work with, or have a professional relationship , or some relationship where one person may have actual power or perception of power over the other. If I ask an employee out on a date, is that too far? For some, it would be, for others, not really. If we are drunk at a Christmas party, and I ask you home afterwards, is that inappropriate? Some business' will have a policy preventing any inter-office dating at all. In my store, I've had several employees date each other, and two couples that actually got married (and are still married) through the store. As for the "shock" of these revelations, come on, do you live in a bubble? If anyone actually thought that there isn't a casting couch mentality in the entertainment industry from day 1, then your level of naivete is incredibly high. Having people afraid to come out and speak on it in the past was certainly reasonable and understandable when you think of the reality of becoming a movie star, and the pressure to fit in.
