Weinstein ‘never’ said he traded roles for sex
Harvey Weinstein has denied he confessed to offering actresses movie roles in exchange for sexual favours in a new interview.
The disgraced movie producer has been hit with accusations of sexual misconduct by over 90 women and in May he was taken into custody by New York authorities and indicted on two counts of rape and one for a criminal sexual act relating to alleged incidents involving two women in 2004 and 2013.
In an interview with The Spectator magazine, Weinstein was quotes as saying “Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did, and still does, everyone.”
However, his lawyer is now denying the 66-year-old made the confession.
“Mr. Weinstein never said anything about trading movie roles for sexual favours,” his lawyer said.
