Famous actress Renee Zellweger has been linked to the huge scandal involving Hollywood director Harvey Weinstein. The actress was accused of giving sexual favors to Weinstein, allegation which she denied.
The allegation against Renee was actually made by Weinstein himself, who allegedly told one of his victims that Renee was one of the actresses who offered him sexual favors to advance in their career. A rep for Renee said that: “If Harvey said that, he’s full of s**t.”
The claim was made in a class-action lawsuit filed by six women against the Hollywood mogul. The lawsuit indicated that Weinstein told one of the plaintiffs that a series of women gave him sexual favors, including Renee Zellweger and Charlize Theron. Weinstein allegedly wanted to give the plaintiff some examples of how women who have a sexual relationship with him made successful acting careers.
Renee has worked with Weinstein on several movies. On the other hand, Charlize Theron, has not directly talk about these claims. However, a source allegedly close to the star denied that she ever had something with Weinstein. The source claimed that Charlize was not one of his victims, but this does not mean there was a relationship between them.
“Obviously there was never anything sexual between Charlize Theron and Harvey Weinstein,” the insider explained according to E! News. Charlize was one of the women who spoke in support of the victims who had been through such a bad experience. The actress shared a message on her Instagram page in October, saying that all the woman who spoke about what happened to them are heroic and brave.
She also said that speaking about the experience of these women and publicly admitting what happened to them has been an important step forward in changing the culture in Hollywood. Several women have opened up about their experience with Weinstein. These women include Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and Rose McGowan, among many others. Some have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, but other women brought very serious rape allegations against the Hollywood director.
