Harvey Weinstein Says 'I'm Not Doing OK' Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Harvey Weinstein

"Everything I do in my life I do for this girl (and her brother)", the mom captioned the image.

To address any lingering concern about Harvey Weinstein's behaviour, Maerov said he successfully pushed a new code of conduct at the company that included a detailed description of sexual harassment. "And when they are famous and powerful like Harvey then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been fearless enough to come out", Fonda said.

After a report in The New York Times last week detailing some of the accusations, the board of Weinstein's own film studio, The Weinstein Co., fired him Sunday. In an Instagram post Thursday, Beckinsale says she left the meeting uneasy but unscathed.

"We really did what I think the law obligates us to do - focus on the evidence and the facts that we had", Vance said Wednesday.

"Since then I felt bad that I did the movie".

The encounter, which she said occurred after Weinstein hired her for the lead role in Emma, allegedly ended with him placing his hands on her and suggesting a massage.

Beckinsale recalls that a few years later Weinstein asked her if he had tried anything with her at the first meeting. The actress said she applauds the women who have come forward with their stories. And I got the part although I didn't give him what he wanted, but I didn't say anything.

A New York Times piece published earlier this week accused Weistein of abusing multiple women, something the producer has categorically denied.

According to the spokesman, the USA shouldn't pressure Iran while negotiating regional issues. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

Boies said that at the time of the contract negotiations, he was aware of three or four settlements with women.

Weinstein was sacked Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother.

Samantha Bee opened Wednesday night's Full Frontal with a blistering take-down of film producer and alleged serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein-a.k.a.

"A second chance, I hope", Weinstein said in a video shot Wednesday outside daughter Lily Weinstein's Los Angeles home obtained by ABC News. He also told the photographers he needs to "get help" and "we all make mistakes".

In the audio of their conversation which was released by the magazine, Weinstein can be heard apologizing for grabbing her breast and then repeatedly pressuring her to come into his hotel room.

"These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation", festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Fremaux wrote in a statement. "Our thoughts go out the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others".

Soon after, Bob Weinstein and three other members of the rapidly dwindling board issued a statement saying that new allegations of extreme sexual misconduct and sexual assault had come as "an utter surprise" and that any "suggestion that the Board had knowledge of this conduct is false".
