Emile Hirsch Learns Female Executives Dont Like Chokeholds

It’s always great to let off steam at crowded industry places like the Sundance Film Festival, but most females aren’t that appreciative of being place in a chokehold, even if it from actor Emile Hirsch. Yes, this is the decade of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” but reality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Worse, when you mess with an executive from a studio like Paramount Pictures, you’re definitely on a self-sabotage mission.

Actor Emile Hirsch has now been charged with felony assault after allegedly chocking a female Paramount Pictures executive last month, Variety reported today.

Dani Bernfeld, vice-president of digital entertainment was attending the Sundance Film Festival in Utah when she encountered Hirsh on Jan 25. Court documents state that she was approached by the very intoxicated actor who asked her why she looked “so tough”. He then stated that she was just a “rich kid” who shouldn’t even be at Sundance. After that, he grabbed Berfeld, but she quickly pushed him away and he left the area with friends.

Not long after the incident, Hirsh came up behind Bernfeld and wrapped his arm around her in a chokehold like embrace, the documents state. The actor then pulled the female executive over a table and onto the floor where he fell on top of her. When he was on top of her, the documents continue stating that this is when he wrapped his hands around her neck.

Bernfelt stated that she her vision went dark, and she clearly remembers feeling his hands so tightly on her neck that it felt like “the front and back of her throat were touching.” She claims that she have blacked out, and two nearby people pulled Hirsh off of her.

Hirsch, of Encino, California, told police he didn’t know Bernfeld but was having an argument with her.

He said he had three to four drinks. An officer reported to prosecutors that the actor’s balance was off, he was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol.

Police told prosecutors that two people had to pull Hirsch off Bernfeld.

Hirsh is being charged with aggravated assault, which is a third degree felony. If he is convicted, the actor could face up to five years in the Utah State Prison. His court date is currently set for March 16.
