The plot thickens for Harvey Weinstein as more women claim sexual assault

Film producer Harvey Weinstein ousted from his own company

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. "Perhaps "I did something to give him the wrong impression". "But I had the facts, and this was the Times".

"I'm sitting here, deeply upset, acknowledging to myself that, yes, for many years, I have been aware of the vague rumors that Harvey Weinstein had a pattern of behaving inappropriately around women", Close said.

But younger stars, like writer and director Lena Dunham, have spoken out, asking why it took so long for this story to break when many in Hollywood allegedly knew of his behavior all along.

Waxman says she had "multiple" people telling her on-record that Lombardo had "no film experience" but regularly hosted evening gatherings with "Russian escorts".

Big time Hollywood movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, is starring in his own real life drama.

Shortly after the Times story broke, Weinstein announced he would be taking an indefinite leave of absence, while a third of the company's all-male board members resigned on Friday, according to a New York Times follow-up.

The labor union SAG-AFTRA has issued a statement condemning disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment and acknowledged it is an issue that is prevalent in the entertainment industry.

"He financed the first 14 years of my career - and now I know while I was profiting, others were in bad pain". In an acceptance speech for that role at the Golden Globes in 2012 she thanked Weinstein, jokingly referring to him as "God, the punisher, Old Testament, I guess".

One of his accusers, the actress Rose McGowan, had pointed to a "deafening" lack of support from Hollywood's elite, saying they were complicit in a "30-year cover up".

"If he did this with me", she told Kelly, "I can only imagine how many other women something like this has happened to".

Min then tweeted that several recipients declined to back Weinstein including Ron Meyer, vice chairman of NBCUniversal, David Zaslav of Discovery Communications, and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the former chair of Walt Disney Studios.

Weinstein has not yet responded publicly to his ouster but last week apologized for the pain his past behavior has caused.
