Hollywood is in the middle of a “watershed moment” post-Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey – events we have dissected in some detail in interviews here at The 405.

Indeed, the list of powerful men now accused of some form of sexual misconduct is now rather long. Pixar’s (and Disney’s) Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter is its newest entry.

In a company-wide memo obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, dated Tuesday November 21, Lasseter announced the self-imposed exile after admitting to "missteps" that made employees feel "disrespected or uncomfortable."

The Reporter further details in a separate piece how employees have a move called "The Lasseter" which was designed to keep the executive from putting his hands on their thighs without consent.

Lasseter has been a driving force at Pixar since the company's inception in the '80's, even directing the first two Two Story films. He further became Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation when Disney bought Pixar in 2006, being responsible for films like Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and Tangled.
