According to hundreds of text messages leaked to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara pushed for a young, unknown actress he was having a sexual relationship with to get auditions for Warner Bros. movies. Producer James Packer introduced the actress to Tsujihara. Packer’s business partner Brett Ratner later tried to get her auditions when she became angry about not booking more roles. WarnerMedia says it will investigate.
