Meryl Streep BLASTS Harvey Weinstein after sacking

Meryl Streep BLASTS Harvey Weinstein after sacking

Meryl Streep and Judi Dench, both venerated performers who have worked with Mr Weinstein, said in statements that they had no knowledge of the producer's alleged actions. "Harvey has always been decent to me, but now that the rumors are being substantiated, I feel angry and darkly sad", Close told The New York Times. NPR's Andrew Limbong reports.

"As we've discovered lately with the numerous sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, and Bill O'Reilly, sexual predators have no political affiliation".

All of these fears are common deterrents for women and sexual assault victims, in general, to come forward about their experiences. Fox News ran a story highlighting Weinstein's links to Democrats, and questioning President Barack Obama's decision to allow his daughter Malia to take an internship with the Weinstein company.

Writing in the Hollywood Reporter, editor-at-large Kim Masters made a similar point.

Streep, who has appeared in several films distributed by the studio including The Iron Lady and August: Osage County, said that she had been unaware of the allegations until now.

"Let's be realistic. They started on Friday".

The mother! star congratulated Weinstein and his wife on the birth of their son, joking, "Harvey gave us just what we needed, another him". "I promise to do everything I personally can to stop it, and I applaud and have deep love for every human being who breaks the silence". And I said what I had heard about him and women in the bluntest possible language. "I was so shocked".

The 65-year-old tycoon, who was said to have been fighting to remain at the company, issued a freakish statement apologising for his actions without addressing any specific allegations, misquoting the rapper Jay Z, and appearing in part to justify his behaviour. And that creates vulnerability. "Fresh off the Boat" star Constance Wu said on Twitter that confronting rampant sexism was hard because "if u address it seriously, u get: "relax it was a joke". I know his wife, I think they're wonderful people, Harvey has done some incredible things.

Trump: That was just locker room talk, I didn't mean it. It's pretty toxic right now to even say Weinstein. In the late '70s, Harvey and his brother Bob co-founded Miramax.

BEN AFFLECK: (As Chuckie) You got something none of us have. Matt Damon and Russell Crowe allegedly applied some of this pressure, vouching for Weinstein directly to Waxman. What if I don't want to? Bankruptcy followed in 2009 but Weinstein mounted a comeback, and again began an Oscar streak with winners like "The Artist" and "The King's Speech".

SNL's executive producer Lorne Michaels explained that the show had not made any jokes at Weinstein's expense this week because Weinstein's influence is "a NY thing". The New York Times said it was "confident in the accuracy of our reporting".

"The way Harvey Weinstein has treated these vulnerable, talented young women is not the way women should ever ever deem to be acceptable or commonplace in any workplace".

"Men in Hollywood need to change ASAP (as soon as possible)", she continues.

MASTERS: This is still a male-dominated business. "I think it is disgusting".
