HAR­VEY WEIN­STEIN SCANDAL

Vocable (Anglais) - - Hollywood -

Hol­ly­wood has been ro­cked by al­le­ga­tions against mo­vie mo­gul Har­vey Wein­stein, the fa­mous co-foun­der of the Wein­stein Com­pa­ny. At least 30 wo­men have come for­ward to claim they were sexual­ly as­saul­ted or ha­ras­sed by the pro­du­cer, in­clu­ding ac­tresses Gwy­neth Pal­trow, An­ge­li­na Jo­lie, Ca­ra De­le­vingne, Léa Sey­doux, Kate Be­ckin­sale, Ro­san­na Ar­quette…. Four days af­ter the sto­ry broke in The New York Times, Har­vey Wein­stein was sa­cked by the board of his com­pa­ny. He ack­now­led­ged his be­ha­vior had cau­sed “a lot of pain” but de­nied al­le­ga­tions of rape. Ma­ny com­men­ta­tors say that Wein­stein’s mis­con­duct was Hol­ly­wood’s “open secret.” “Eve­ryone could see what he was doing,” Léa Sey­doux wrote in The Guar­dian. “That's the most dis­gus­ting thing. Eve­ryone knew what Har­vey was up to and no one did any­thing.”
