Last week, an exposé in The New York Times accused Weinstein of sexually harassing a number of women, including actress Ashley Judd. In a statement to the Times, Weinstein said: “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it.” An adviser described him as “an old dinosaur learning new ways.” He said he was due to take a sabbatical and was working with therapists to “deal with this issue head on.” However, his consulting lawyer, Lisa Bloom, stated that “he denies many of the accusations as patently false.” After facing criticism, Bloom announced the end of her role advising Weinstein on October 7. In an email, Weinstein’s attorney Charles Harder said his client would be suing The New York Times and any proceeds derived from the suit would be donated to women’s organizations.
In The New Yorker on October 10, 2017, it was reported that Weinstein had assaulted or harassed 13 women, and raped three of them. Reportedly, sixteen former, or current, executives and assistants connected with Weinstein said that they had witnessed or had been informed of Weinstein’s non-consensual sexual advances to women. Four actresses, including Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette, relayed their suspicion that after rejecting Weinstein’s advances, and complaining about him, he had them dropped from projects, or persuaded others to do so. A number of the reporter’s sources said Weinstein has referred to his success in planting stories in the media about individuals who had crossed him. In a New York Times article published on the same day, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and French actress Judith Godrèche, among others, also accused Weinstein of making unwanted sexual advances. A Weinstein representative said all these claims, in both articles, were false.
