Harvey Weinstein speaks out after sex allegations: 'We all make mistakes'

Harvey Weinstein speaks out after sex allegations: 'We all make mistakes'”

The Goop founder is one of dozens of women accusing film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct after an investigation uncovered three-decades of allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the Hollywood exec.

"I think everyone needs to stop, I think it's wrong", she added.

In a statement Thursday, guild President Beau Willimon and Executive Director Lowell Peterson condemned Harvey Weinstein's "deplorable" behavior and said that "sexual harassment and assault have always been hallmarks of the entertainment industry".

Others actors as prominent as Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet said they had long heard rumors but never personally had problems with Weinstein.

The French actress, who won the Palme d'Or at Cannes for Blue Is The Warmest Colour, said the film mogul stared at her "as if I was a piece of meat". "After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed", Beckinsale said in her post.

Masse said she remained calm as he led her to a couch and sat down on a couch across from her and went ahead with standard interview questions. He then asked whether she felt it was a conflict to be his nanny while pursuing an acting career and smirked when he asked whether she would "flirt" with his friends to get ahead.

Since then, the story has developed continuously, with a large number of women coming forward to claim they were sexually harassed by Weinstein - allegations he has denied. "I'm hanging in-I'm trying my best", he says.

With the allegations pouring in, Weinstein was sacked by his own company, and his wife, Georgina Chapman, reportedly plans to divorce him. You know what, we all make mistakes.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane addresses a joke he made about Weinstein's sexual conduct at the 2013 Oscar nominations, saying chose to speak out after a co-star had been harassed by the producer.

At least three women who spoke to the New Yorker said they had been raped by Weinstein, who has maintained that he believed all the encounters were consensual. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has schedule a special meeting on Saturday, when its board of governors will decide how to respond to the allegations against Weinstein. Prime Minister Theresa May says a decision about the honour would not lie with Downing Street. "We can from this create a new paradigm where producers, managers, executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said "well, that's just Harvey/Mr X/insert name here" will realize that we in numbers can affect real change", she said.

"These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation", festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Fremaux wrote in a statement.

New York City police detectives are taking a fresh look into sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
