Harvey Weinstein caught messing with actresses in Great Britain? It’s surely possible.
The movie mogul who was just expelled from the Academy of Motion Pictures is now being investigated for sexual assault in the U.K.
Lysette Anthony has produced the most in-depth breakdown of Weinstein raping her at her home in the 1980s. Anthony shared this story to the police 15 years ago, and after many women have reported what Weinstein has done to them, she reported it to the British Metropolitan Police.
What Weinstein has done is monstrous. What I don’t understand is that this guy was considered a god a couple of weeks ago by Meryl Streep. Countless women have let him get away with this predatory behavior – so much for sisterhood!! Now, they’re coming out left, right and centre with stories of abuse and rape. If Weinstein was a bus-conductor or a factory worker he’d be behind bars!
“I’ve buried this story for so long that dredging it all up feels as if I’m piecing together a jigsaw made up of smashed shards of glass,” the “Hollyoaks” star said in an interview with the Sunday Times, recalling meeting Weinstein in 1982 and being “grabbed” by him for the first time a few years later.
She went on to describe their traumatic encounter when he visited at her home.
“I was in my dressing gown and I answered the door to find Harvey standing there,” she said. “He pushed me inside and rammed me up against the coat rack in my tiny hall and started fumbling at my gown. He was trying to kiss me and shove inside me. It was disgusting.”
“Finally I just gave up,” she continued. “At least I was able to stop him kissing me. As he ground himself against me and shoved inside me, I kept my eyes shut tight, held my breath, just let him get on with it. He came over my leg like a dog and then left. It was pathetic, revolting. I remember lying in the bath later and crying.”
“What you have to understand is that no one turned down an opportunity to meet Harvey Weinstein. No one,” she said. “By then I’d just given up. I knew I was powerless and at least I wouldn’t have to do much. I was just a body, young flesh. It wouldn’t take long and no one knew.”
The elites get away with murder. They think they are untouchable, and they usually are.
I know he’s a powerful man but I don’t get why people like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, who are big stars themselves, didn’t come forward years ago and stop it continuing to happen to many more women. That will be one of the questions that will continue to plague this entire situation.
Loads of abuse has gone on and it needs to be investigated not brushed under the carpet there’s no smoke without fire. Wonder if he assaulted Hillary too before donating to her election campaigns.
He needs to face charges, and then the rest of Hollywood needs to come down right behind him.
