Winnipeg Sun - - NEWS - — WENN

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.
