Max Landis Accused Of Abuse By Eight Women:
The latest of eight women to come forward with allegations of abuse against Landis is actress Ani Baker, an ex-girlfriend who posted on social media that “this person is really destructive,” she said, “that I had never heard of who are like, ‘I too was tortured by this person.’”
“If you have found my page via Max Landis, hi,” Baker wrote on social media. “I’m going to give you some direct info I wish I had gotten, because the experience/aftermath of this person is really destructive, and it will be riddled with pain and emotional work that you don’t need to spend your precious energy on.”
“I can’t imagine who is more scared in a post-Weinstein world than a famous director’s son,” musician and writer Allie Goertz posted.
“He trusted that we wouldn’t ever say anything, worked actively to discredit people who were saying things, and was just as consistent in the abuse as he was with covering it up and manipulating us afterwards,” Julie, an ex-girlfriend and former friend of Landis’s, explained
“Max Landis is a serial psychological abuser who tormented me for six years, long after our romantic relationship, both directly and behind my back,” Julie wrote in her statement.
Dani Manning Max Landis:
Dani Manning, a previous ex-girlfriend. “It was abusive,” she insisted. “He would manipulate them, body-shame them, and was just generally cruel.”
“I was friends with Julie when she dated Max and you could see her losing weight, and witness him going after other women while he was with her to keep her on her toes,” Dani Manning recalled. “And the same thing happened to Kerry.”
In a statement Kerry wrote that Landis “picked on me constantly. He’d say ‘you don’t do hot girl well’ or ‘you should do whatever she does to work out’ while pointing at some other woman’s body.
Tasha Goldthwait Max Landis:
Tasha Goldthwait said, “On set he would touch me all the time, he would pick me up and turn me upside down and carry me around set. My shirt would come above my face and I’d be exposed. At one point we were on set with people around and he pushed me down and got on top of me on a bed. I raised my voice and told him to get off of me, and eventually managed to get him off.”
Landis, 33, is the son of director John Landis. Known for writing the screenplay for “Chronicle,” his most recent credit is the David Ayer film “Bright.” Allegations against him have been aired on social media for the last year or more.
Masha Mendieta Max Landis:
An 18-year-old college student, Masha Mendieta said, “The title goes to Max Landis for introducing me to harassment in the workplace,”
“It was a long time ago and I know there are other things that I just cannot bring forward and do not want to in my mind,” Manning wrote in a statement. “The emotional abuse took control of me to the point where I got down to 115 lbs. at 5’10—still not skinny enough.
The friend group Max Landis kept around him as both a lure and a shield, known as “the Colour Society”, according to Julie*, an ex-girlfriend and former frind of Landis’s, “Max’s whole entire MO was, he had a special friend group, it’s very exclusive, and you’re lucky to be a part of it. He introduced me to almost every single one of my current friends.”
Josh Trank tweeted, “100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of Chronicle, and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012. To read about the terror he’s inflicted on so many women since then makes me sick to my stomach. Heartbroken beyond measure.”
