A decade earlier, aspiring screenwriter Janet Jones met Moonves in his office for a pitch meeting. She arrived to meet him at 20th Century Fox, briefcase in hand, wearing a pantsuit, ready to talk about her screenplay. He offered her a glass of wine and made unwanted sexual overtures.
“He came around the corner of the table and threw himself on top of me. It was very fast,” Jones told the New Yorker, saying Moonves began trying to kiss her. Jones said that she struggled, and shoved Moonves away hard, yelling, “What do you think you’re doing?” Moonves responded, “‘Well, I was hitting on you.'”
Jones recounted the experience to producer Mike Marvin, who said he confronted Moonves about his behavior. Not long afterwards, Jones said she received a threatening call from Moonves who told her, “I will ruin your career. You will never get a writing job. No one will hire you.”
I believe this Janet Jones is the current wife of Wayne Gretzky--the Great One....sad for anyone who is assaulted like this!!.....Joe P
