29 Female Celebs Who Accused Harvey Weinstein of Assault — So Far
It feels like lately there’s nothing more sickening than taking a look at the news. With the massacre in Vegas, the devastation in California, and now all of the disgusting allegations against Harvey Weinstein, it feels like it has just been one thing after another after another. As the wildfires in Cali are continuing to spread and destroying homes, the reports of the producer’s sexual assault just keep coming, too.
Every time we turn on the news, another woman is speaking out about her horrific experiences with the 65-year-old. Most recounted stories involve bath robes, massage requests, and empty hotel rooms, rather than the business meetings he promised.
We always knew the name Harvey Weinstein would live on forever, but now it won’t be for the successful company he created with his brother, or the lengthy list of movies he worked on (Pulp Fiction and Silver Linings Playbook, to name a couple). Instead, he will be remembered for the things that over 20 leading ladies have been saying about him in the last week.
In light of the information that’s recently been revealed, Harvey has been fired from his own company and sent to Arizona for sex-addiction treatment. He released a statement recently that said, “I want a second chance in the community but I know I’ve got work to do to earn it.” Uh, he can say that again (or a million more times). With just one look at what all the women we’ve rounded up experienced at his hands, you’ll agree that his statement is, in fact, a massive understatement.
These women waited so long to speak out for various reasons, including that they wouldn’t be believed or that their careers would be ruined as a result. But now that the floodgates have opened, we are ALL listening.
It was when Harvey tried pressuring her into drinking a vodka and soda instead of water that Lupita became suspicious of his intent. Later, when she was with the director at his home for a meeting, Harvey took the actress to his bedroom and asked to give her a massage. She gave him one instead, but only to give herself time to figure out how to leave, and firmly told him no when he mentioned wanting to remove his pants.
That wasn't Lupita's last inappropriate experience with Harvey. At a dinner meeting with him months later, the director asked Lupita up to his private room. When she said no, he told her an actress had to be willing to agree to things like that for her career. Absolutely not true, and Lupita proved that to be so when she refused him and went on to kill her career anyway.
