Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced tycoon arrested on charges of rape in May last year, took time Tuesday Tuesday to answer Diversity a story about Gwyneth Paltrow. after winning the Oscars for Best Actress for "Shakespeare in Love", released by Weinstein. In this story, Paltrow speaks of ways to mock Weinstein and how she was supposed to resist him. And in 2017, in the New York Times interview, Paltrow joined dozens of women who accused Weinstein of being sexually abusive.
Weinstein did not comment on this statement, and he remained out of sight in the amount of 1 million dollars. But strangely enough, he decided to ponder Paul Jr.'s anecdote about the casting of Joseph Finnes as the leader of "Shakespeare in love."
"At the last minute, Harvey wanted Ben Affleck to take on Shakespeare's role," said Paltrow Variety . "I said," No, you can not do this, you must have an English person. " ̵
But Weinstein decided to issue a statement denying that he had ever thought pr about Affleck. "Gwyneth Paltrow is a great actor and a fantastic person who works so well on the right project," Weinstein wrote in a statement sent through his publicist. The only other contenders for the role of Will Shakespeare were Russell Crowe and Ethan Hawk, nobody else. Ben Affleck performed a tremendous work like Ned Alleyn, which he considered to be for himself "
Judas Engelmeier, present-day Weinstein reputation, warned the quote with a long statement . "Just to ask – why do not you ask us anything here," wrote Engelmaier. – When will the media discuss crap about Harvey, and when will the actual accounts and investigations become respected again? When Paltrow says: "The film will not succeed if it's not a good film, not like that," you accept it as a gospel, but when someone accuses Harvey of machinations, the same mood is ignored instead of something more ominous, why? Just like a good movie – a good movie, if someone is a good actor, you can not keep her or him down. If someone is cashier raffle, a good agency and a good actor will be chosen for a role – someone's blacklist – it's just a good idea that it's convenient to beat a drum against Weinstein. "
In general, dozens of women accused Weinstein of sexual violations, and two of these allegations resulted in criminal liability. Weinstein is not to blame. His court session is scheduled for summer.
