This whole Harvey Weinstein saga that’s rocking Hollywood RN has unearthed some pretty disturbing shit, to say the least.
ICYMI (somehow?): the super-producer (whose CV includes blockbusters like Pulp Fiction, Sin City and Gangs Of New York) has been turfed from both his film company and The Academy itself following a veritable tsunami of allegations detailing acts of sexual assault, harassment, intimidation and straight-up rape from dozens of tinsel town women, including A-list actresses like Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevigne, Rose McGowan, Gwenyth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, Ashley Judd, Eva Green and too many more to name.
But perhaps even more disturbing than all that is the fact that Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct seems to have been something of an “open secret” in Hollywood; information that was largely common knowledge, but which nobody has been brave enough to speak about publicly until The New York Times blew the whole thing wide open last week.
Nobody except for Courtney Love, back in 2005, that is.
In the wake of the Weinstein scandal, an old interview with Love following the Comedy Central Roast Of Pamela Anderson 12 years ago has resurfaced, in which the grunge queen boldly tries to warn the world, in plain English, of Weinstein’s predatory nature.
When a reporter asked her whether she had any advice for young girls starting out in La-La-Land, she nervously replied: “If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a party at the Four Seasons, don’t go.”
How ironic that a person so many music fans view as the world’s biggest liar was one of the only people to speak out about the alleged dirt-baggery of this film industry power-player.
