The Curse of Great Beauty - Targeted for Sexual Harassment

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  So, unlike the growing list of Hollywood beauties reporting alleged harassment by Harvey Weinstein, I was not targeted for play-to-get-ahead. When the universe was giving out gifts at my birth, the face that would launch a 1000 ships wasn't one of them. Neither were long legs.
