Meryl Streep: ‘Not Everybody Knew’ About Weinstein. Jessica Chastain: ‘The Stories Were Everywhere.’

On Monday, Actress Jessica Chastain weighed in on the revelations about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment of multiple women and what she had to say was damning to those in the industry who have claimed that they had no idea about Weinstein’s notorious behavior.

“I was warned from the beginning. The stories were everywhere. To deny that is to create an environment for it to happen again,” tweeted Chastain on Monday.

    Everybody knew, Nobody knew… who cares. This is what we know.

    Every woman that was molested by this man was humiliated and disgusted and frightened. But each one of these women wanted fame so badly, they put up with it. Now, that the pack has turned, it’s safe to exact revenge, and that’s what they’re doing. But back then, when they faced putting a famous career on the line to do the right thing? Not so much.

  • People knew and then didn’t know?

    Wow. These guys are horrible at covering their butts.

    • It’s pitiful watching Hollywood pretend to be the victim.

      • Pitiful? Try disgusting, pathetic, hypocritical, disingenuous …

        Should I go on?

    Harvey must have lost the “to – do list” forwarded to him from his expensive legal/ PR help a while back.
    Item one: Convert to islam, soonest.

    • I bet he seeks treatment in Dubai.

        Simus, you’re right. If a scandal breaks, the best thing to do is to tilt left, fast. Remember the movie The Social Network? It slammed Mark Zuckerberg hard, but once he tilted to the left, all criticism of him stopped.

    The posted article mentions the Hollywood Reporter, a rather gabby periodical, around for decades — who one would have thought would have done a series of articles attacking Weinstein years ago — remained silent the whole time. And no media based in the Los Angeles area, privy to the negative gossip, said or did anything.

    It took the NYT, based in NY, to do the investigative work. And it is remarkable that the NYT, left wing as it is, did publish the investigative piece. Conservative media could not do this, since they are forcibly excluded from Hollywood. And if a conservative outlet did publish the original work, the Big Media Cartel would censor it.

      ” When asked about being objective at the Times, Dudich replied candidly, saying, “No, I’m not, that’s why I’m here.”

      Rumour has it that Harvey Weinstein’s brother pulled the plug after a series of loser films. Apparently brotherly love only extends so far when it affects the bottom line.

      On the other hand, are only hearing about some gross encounters, exposures, etc., but no rapes. The man did – if my reading of events is correct – back off when the young femmes said no. So why is Bill Clinton still revered while this man gets the bum’s rush?

        Big Hollywood and the Big Media protect their own. It’s the same with Muslim Imams. The Big Media protect them (if they say or post something extremist) since Islam is considered a “good” religion. Mr. Weinstein is left-wing, so he was protected. So was Mr. Clinton.

    This ‘casting couch’ phrase? Never heard it before, especially in relation to Hollywood. This is all so new.

  • Tooth&Claw

    No credibility. They heard it through the grapevine. That they weren’t personally hit on is debatable.

    • Watchman

      Presumption of innocence: “Innocent until proven guilty” is, I’m sure, why nobody said anything. /sarc

  • Jaedo Drax

    So how many other corpulent producers are there in hollywood that are continuing to harass women and getting away with it because they have the right politics?

    why aren’t the scribblers asking these women who else in hollywood has been behaving like weinstein?
