Women are still coming out of the woodwork about Harvey Weinstein…
- Minka Kelly has added her name to the growing list of women who’ve had less-than-savory dealings with Harvey. She took to Instagram on Friday to detail a meeting with the mogul in which he promised her a lavish life filled with trips around the world on private planes…if she’d be his girlfriend. Or, they could keep their relationship professional. When she turned him down, he said, “Fine. I trust you won’t tell anyone about this.” Now she’s sad and sorry she protected him by being complicit.
- Kate Winslet said that when she won her Oscar for “The Reader” in 2009 she thanked 19 people. Harvey wasn’t one of them. She said, “That was absolute deliberate.” Apparently someone told her to make sure she thanked Harvey because his company financed and distributed the movie. Her thought was, “I remember turning around and saying, ‘No I won’t. No I won’t.’ And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?” She went on to say, “The fact that I’m never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again as long as I live is one of the best things that’s ever happened and I'm sure the feeling is universal.”
- Rose McGowan is claiming that she got blacklisted after revealing that Harvey raped her. She said she had up to two hundred people she could subpoena to support her story and referred to a legal document in relation to the attack. “I actually have a signed document from the time of the attack. It was settled for a very small settlement, so that’s an admission of guilt,” she explained. Rose would’ve reported it to the police, but a criminal lawyer told her that she was unlikely to win. In addition, “They threatened [me] with being blacklisted. I was blacklisted after I was raped, because I got raped, because I said something…but only like internally, you know,” she explained.
- Finally, one of the first women Harvey assaulted is speaking up. Paula Wachowiak said that he exposed himself to her in 1980 when she was a 24-year-old intern attending the University of Buffalo. At the time, he was a local concert promoter and budding film producer who hired her to work on the set of his first movie, “The Burning.” He asked her, “Was seeing me naked the highlight of your internship?” She replied, “Actually, Harvey, you disgust me.” He laughed and drove off.
