Harvey Weinstein is admitting for the first time that he did offer actresses’ acting jobs in exchange for sex but said he’s not the only one doing so.
The disgraced movie mogul who pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges in June, told the Spectator his behavior is the norm in Hollywood.
The article goes on to state the following:
“You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome. I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere,” Weinstein told Taki of the Spectator. “You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood.”
He then admitted, “Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman.”
Weinstein, accompanied by his lawyer Ben Brafman, also alleged that two of his most outspoken accusers, Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, were lying when McGowan claimed Argento had an open relationship with late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain.
“Her friend McGowan claimed that Asia and Anthony had an open relationship,” Taki wrote of his conversation with Weinstein. “It was obviously not true, says Harvey, but dead men tell no tales, so the girls made it up.”
Below is the full text of what Taki wrote on his interview regarding Weinstein’s comments:
We then chatted about his life and how he had lost not only his business and reputation, but also his family, his homes, and was now facing prison. Actually he is facing life in prison because at 66 years of age and not in good health, even five years in an American jail is a death sentence. Here’s what he had to say to me: “You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome. I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere. You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood. Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman.” Call me naïve or stupid, but in a funny way I believe him. I’ve seen Harvey in action during my annual Christmas party, the one I throw every year in New York with Michael Mailer. He hits on every young woman but in a naïve way. “Will you give me your address and I’ll make you a star,” is the theme of the pickup. Some say yes, some say no. His reaction was always the same. Smile and laugh and hit on the next one.
