I'm sure the contracts have some "for cause" provisions that can be broadly enough construed around morality or publicity concerns that would allow the studio to nullify the contract.

That's a separate issue. Spacey got paid, the studio can choose not to use his footage. It happens plenty of times simply because the director didn't like the performance or decides those scenes don't fit in the finished movie.

Hi, I'm new here.  :) Not sure if there's a place I'm supposed to check-in or what not.

All I have to add at this moment is:

I just saw "Raw", and I feel a little queasy.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Are there more gay than lesbian movies (by a wide margin) because there are statistically more gays than lesbians in the population or it is something else?

Maybe most of the movies are still made by men?

Source? I mean, I suppose for the reason jdc mentions I could see there being more gay than lesbian movies but I don't know that it just stands out as obvious.

There might be more gay men than lesbian women but there are probably more non-straight women than non-straight men. Female sexuality tends to be more fluid.
