Actress Rose McGowan Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Rape

Famous actress Rose McGowan had a very serious allegation to share about Harvey Weinstein. The popular actress accused Weinstein of rape. Rose becomes this way one of the few women who have raised rape allegations against the Hollywood producer. Dozens of women have accused him of sexual harassment and abuse, but only few shared the very serious allegations of rape.

Rose revealed what had happened to her in relation to Weinstein in some Twitter posts. The star claimed that she actually complained to Amazon Studio chief Roy Price, but he ignored her. Things are not looking good for Roy Price, either, as he was placed on leave of absence after a woman brought sexual harassment allegations against him, as well.

“Roy Price is on leave of absence effective immediately. We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co,” Amazon stated. Isa Hackett claimed that Price made sexual related proposals to her in a taxi and at a corporate dinner. The events happened in 2015, she said. Isa is a producer of one of Amazon’s shows. She said she immediately complained to Amazon’s executives about what happened. The company started an investigation, bringing an outside investigator to check the validity of the claims.

Isa said that she was never informed on what the investigation found. However, she was never again put in the situation of working with Price. She said he never attended events involving her shows.

“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” Rose wrote in her post addressing Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon. “Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.” So, the actress criticised Amazon for doing business with Weinstein, despite knowing about his behavior.

Of course, Weinstein has denied the sexual assaults, but the New York Police Department and the London Met Police have started investigations on the allegations. A lawyer for the Hollywood producer said that any sexual contacts Weinstein had were consensual.

Sienna Miller and Felicity Huffman Say they were threatened by Harvey Weinstein

The scandal involving Harvey Weinstein is getting bigger by the day. Now, the allegations have moved from sexual harassment and rape to threats and intimidation. Two actresses, Sienna Miller and Felicity Huffman, said that they were threatened by Weinstein, who made them wear the label released by his wife, Marchesa.

So, Weinstein allegedly threatened the stars to help promote the fashion brand released by his wife, Georgina Chapman. Sienna said that for her the threat happened in 2006, after she starred in the movie Factory Girl. She was made to wear Marchesa at the Golden Globe Awards, as she sat next to Weinstein and Chapman. Sienna said that the Hollywood producer told her “he would be very upset if she didn’t wear Marchesa.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the fashion brand was actually Weinstein’s project, while his wife was perfectly aware of his behavior, but chose to ignore it because of the benefits they both had from their relationship. “He was the mastermind behind Marchesa – orchestrating deals and using his influence in terms of the celebrity connections for her on behalf of the brand,” a source told the celebrity site.

When it comes to Felicity, the Desperate Housewives star stared a similar story. She was threatened that Weinstein would stop promoting her 2015 movie Transamerica, if she wouldn’t wear Marchesa on the red carpet. The actress confirmed the story.

All these stories regarding Weinstein have started to expand and lead to new consequences. After the allegations emerged, Georgina decided to leave her husband. However, she did not comment on the claims made regarding her fashion brand. “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband,” Georgina said. “Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” her statement added.

Actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were accused of knowing about Weinstein’s behavior towards women. However, the two famous actors, who are known to have worked on several occasions with Weinstein, said they found out about his acts when the allegations emerged in the media.

Lea Seydoux Talks about Harvey Weinstein and Sexual Abuse

Lea Seydoux is one of the latest stars to open up about Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual abuse. Lea appears to be one of the victims of the famous producer. The scandal started after a series of women, including famous actresses, accused Harvey of sexual harassment and abuse.

Lea revealed during an op-ed for the Guardian that it all happened during a night after a fashion show. She claimed that she first met Weinstein at that fashion show, and he insistently asked her to make an appointment that night. Lea claimed that she realized what his intentions were, but she finally agreed to have the meeting. The actress said that they met in the lobby of his hotel and Weinstein’s assistant was present at first.

“All throughout the evening, he flirted and stared at me as if I was a piece of meat. He acted as if he were considering me for a role. But I knew that was bulls**t,” the star said. “He invited me to come to his hotel room for a drink. We went up together. It was hard to say no because he’s so powerful,” she added. The star revealed that soon after they arrived in the hotel room, Weinstein’s assistant left and they remained alone.

Of course, after that moment Weinstein started to be more visible when it comes to his moves. “We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted,” she said. The star revealed that after that night she met Weinstein on several other occasions.

She said that she saw him trying to convince women to give him what he wanted. She claimed that Weinstein is a man who uses his power to always get what he wants. However, an interesting thing that Lea said is that Weinstein is not the only movie director who has acted inappropriately. She said that she had other experiences working with other directors who tried to kiss her or told her that they wished to have sex with her.

FBI to Investigate Harvey Weinstein

It seems that the FBI has also joined the case involving Harvey Weinstein. It has been reported that the FBI started an investigation against Weinstein, following allegations of sexual harassment and rape from several women.

The Daily Mail reported that the FBI’s decision was rushed by rumors that Weinstein was planning on leaving the Unites States to move to Europe. This means that he might be able to avoid prosecution. So, the FBI will be looking into the allegations against Weinstein. A TMZ report claimed that Weinstein was actually planning on leaving the country this week and fly to Switzerland. The same report claimed that the Hollywood producer later changed his mind.

The star wanted to go to Europe to get treatment for sex addiction. However, it was reported that his team finally found a facility for him to attend in Arizona. Weinstein will allegedly get treatment for sex addiction and behavioral issues at this facility. However, this does not mean that things are looking better for Weinstein.

In fact, the producer is constantly linked to new sexual harassment allegations. While more women start to speak up about his abuses, some cases have also been reported outside of the US. So, reportedly, there are five accusers talking about his misconduct in France, as well as some in London, although the exact number has not been revealed for the moment. Most likely, the FBI will collaborate with the local authorities when it comes to their investigation.

One of the most serious allegations against Weinstein had been made by Lucia Evans, who said that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him. Lucia said she was a student who wanted to become an actress in 2004, when this happened. The incident occurred in New York. Several actresses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd, claimed that they were sexually harassed by Weinstein on different occasions at the beginning of their careers. They each shared different stories on how the abuse happened.

Rose McGowan Says Ben Affleck Lies in Harvey Weinstein Statement

The world of Hollywood has definitely been shaken by the latest scandal that emerged only a couple of days ago. A series of women, including famous actresses, claimed that they have been victims of sexual harassment by famous Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Of course, a series of stars took to social media to express their regret and say that they were never aware of the abuses.

Ben Affleck shared a message on Twitter saying that he was angry that this has happened, but he did not mention if he ever knew about Weinstein’s behavior. Affleck had worked with Weinstein at several movies, including Good Will Hunting, which made Affleck a star.

“I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades. The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick,” the actor said. “This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters,” the star’s message added.

However, his statement was not appreciated at all by actress Rose McGowan, who actually accused Ben of knowing about Weinstein’s behavior and lying for him. Rose said that she personally told Ben about Weinstein inappropriately behaving with her. Rose said that Ben told her that Weinstein also mistreated other women.

Affleck made no other statements following the allegations formulated by Rose McGowan. On the other hand, it is also important to mention that Rose also provided no additional details on her statement. Thus, it remains to be clarified what this all means. McGowan and Weinstein reached a settlement back in 1997. She received $100,000 from Weinstein after accusing him of sexual harassment in a hotel room.

Meanwhile, Weinstein has denied all the allegations made against him. He did apologize for “the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past,” but provided no other details.

Matt Damon Denies Covering Up for Harvey Weinstein

Without a doubt, the subject of the moment when it comes to the world of celebrities involves Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment, abuse and even rape by a series of famous women. Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie or Rosanna Arquette have talked against the movie producer.

However, along with Weinstein, some other famous names were also dragged into the scandal. One of them is popular actor Matt Damon. Damon was accused of trying to cover up Weinstein’s mistakes, allegation which the actor denied. So, reporter Sharon Waxman accused Damon of trying to “kill” a story about Weinstein about 13 years ago.

The reporter said that she became aware of some rumors indicating that one of Weinstein’s employees in Italy was trying to procure women for him. However, she did not get to investigate too much, because she soon got a phone call from Damon and actor Russell Crowe, who wanted to vouch for the employee. Finally, the story was never published and the allegations were never made public. According to the reporter, Weinstein had actually asked Damon and Crowe to call her and make her take the story back.

“They were calling me to vouch for this executive. They were calling me to say that they knew the guy, they hung out with him in Italy, and he seemed like a good guy,” Waxman said. Well, Matt Damon denied conspiring with Weinstein or knowing about any allegations. He said he never tried to end the story. “I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story like that,” the Hollywood star said according to Deadline. “I just wouldn’t do that. It’s not something I would do, for anybody,” he went on to add.

The actor also said that Weinstein told him that the story was about the executive not having professional experience, and Weinstein asked Damon to “tell her that he was a professional and you had a good experience, and that was it”. “I was never conscripted to do anything. We vouch for each other, all the time,” he explained. “I’m sure I mentioned to her that I didn’t know anything about the rest of her piece, because I didn’t,” the actor concluded. Damon also said that he never knew about Weinstein’s behavior related to sexual abuse allegations.

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow Talk against Harvey Weinstein

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow are the latest stars to join the list of accusers against Harvey Weinstein. The two famous actresses talked against Harvey while contacting the New York Times. Both Gwyneth and Angelina said that they were sexually harassed by the movie producer.

Gwyneth Paltrow claimed that she was 22 years old when the incident occurred. Harvey called her into his hotel room, allegedly for a work related meeting, after he cast her in the main role of the movie Emma. The movie, based on a Jane Austen book, made Gwyneth a worldwide known star.

So, before filming for Emma started, Harvey called Gwyneth and asked her to go to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel. He tried to put his hands on the actress and asked her to go to the bedroom for massages. Gwyneth refused him and the actress said she was very scared. “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she said.

The popular actress went on to say that she told her boyfriend of that time, Brad Pitt, about what happened and the famous actor confronted Harvey Weinstein about the incident. Of course, he left her alone, but Harvey asked Gwyneth not to tell anyone else about what happened. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she explained.

Angelina Jolie also shared a similar story with The New York Times. The actress claimed that it all happened in the 1990s, after she starred in the movie Playing by Heart. Once again, the sexual harassment happened in a hotel room. Angelina said he made some sexual advances which she naturally rejected. “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” the actress explained. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable,” she also said in an email sent to the New York Times.

Harvey Weinstein was accused by several women of sexual harassment, abuse and even forced oral and vaginal sex. He denied the allegations of forcing women into sex.

Meryl Streep talks about allegations against Harvey Weinstein

Hollywood is once again dealing with some serious allegations. Famous actress Meryl Steep decided to talk about the claims. The popular actress, among other stars, talked about the sexual harassment allegations that have recently emerged against Harvey Weinstein, the co-founder of The Weinstein Company.

The whole case started with a New York Times investigation which accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. After the investigation was published, Weinstein was fired from the company. Allegedly, Weinstein engaged in improper conduct over a period of three decades. Apparently, Meryl Streep never knew that Weinstein engaged in such misconduct.

“The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported,” the actress said in an official statement according to the Huffington Post. “The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes,” she said. “One thing can be clarified. Not everybody knew,” the same statement added.

Meryl Streep also explained that she never had an issue with Weinstein and she was never subjected to improper behavior from his side. “Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally,” she said. Meryl also explained that she never knew about his alleged crimes or the settlements he reportedly reached with some actresses.

“I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts,” she explained. “And If everybody knew, I don’t believe that all the investigative reporters in the entertainment and the hard news media would have neglected for decades to write about it,” she added.

The accusations against Weinstein were made by actress Ashley Judd, among other women, who alleged sexual harassment. Harvey Weinstein released a statement after the allegations emerged and he actually said that he changed when it comes to his interactions with other people and he apologized for causing pain to colleagues in the past.

Harvey Weinstein Accused of Sexual Harassment

Once again, Hollywood has been shaken by some very serious accusations. A New York Times investigation claimed that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed several women throughout the years. One of these women has allegedly been actress Ashley Judd.

Ashley claimed during an interview with the New York Times that about two decades ago she met Harvey Weinstein for the first time. The Hollywood producer invited her into his hotel room, at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel. He met her dressed in a bathrobe and asked Ashley if he could give her a massage. He also asked the actress is she wanted to watch him shower. Ashley said during the interview that she wanted to get out of the room as fast as possible.

However, Ashley Judd was not the only one who received such an offer from Harvey. Emily Nestor shared another story. She claimed that she was invited in 2014 by Harvey to the same hotel. He told her that he would help boost her acting career if she accepted his sexual advances.

The New York Times revealed that allegations of sexual harassment have been constant against Harvey Weinstein for about three decades. The accusers include current and former employees at his company, The Weinstein Company, as well as film industry workers. The same investigation indicated that Weinstein reached no less than eight settlements with different women on accusations of sexual harassment.

Harvey Weinstein responded to the report and issued an apology. “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go,” he said. He also claimed that he was dealing with the issue. However, a lawyer for Weinstein denied the allegations on his behalf. Since the release of this report, The Weinstein Company’s board decided to fire Harvey. It is yet to see if the report will be followed by new lawsuits against him. For the moment, there is no such indication.
