Harvey Weinstein Reportedly Made Sienna Miller Cry After A 'Paternal Lecture' One Evening At A Party
According to a report from PageSix.com, the actress, Sienna Miller accused Harvey Weinstein of lecturing her so much that she started to cry as a young girl. The interview featured the actress telling her story of the time Harvey lectured her about partying, and then slammed a door in her face.
Speaking with reporters from Elle UK, the British actress claimed Harvey called her into the office after he had just purchased the rights to 2006's Factory Girl. Miller was slated to portray Edie Sedgwick in the biographical film.
Reported first by The Independent, Sienna accused Harvey of sitting her down, then standing before her and demanding, "You're not partying more." According to Miller, she said it was like a "paternal lecture." "He slammed the door and I burst into tears."
As it was previously reported, the 67-year-old co-founder of Miramax has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women over the last few decades as one of the most powerful and influential Hollywood moguls.
Harvey's behavior and the subsequent reporting on it from the New York Times as well as the New Yorker were the primary impetus for the cascade of allegations that came out in the final months of 2017, which have continued until this day, although they have since slowed down.
Currently, the former Weinstein Company owner is gearing up to stand before a Manhattan Supreme Court in January on rape charges among other transgressions. Weinstein has denied all of the allegations vehemently through his legal team and representatives.
The 37-year-old actress has been very outspoken in the movement, saying to reporters from Elle Magazine that she believes women have "been undermined and undervalued." The New Yorker claims the #MeToo movement has been "essential."
A few years before the #MeToo movement really picked up steam, Bill Cosby was in the media for accusations of drugging and raping women. He was convicted guilty and sent to prison in Arizona last year. Additionally, R. Kelly, the former R&B legend, is also on trial on several charges.
