Anne Heche is the most recent starlet to implicate Harvey Weinstein of sexual misbehavior.
On Tuesday, the Six Days, Seven Knights starlet appeared on the Allegedly podcast where she states she was fired from a Miramax motion picture after she chose not to carry out foreplay on the manufacturer.
While it is uncertain which movie she is describing, the 48- year-old last acted in the business’s 2001 function Prozac Nation

When asked why some declared victims didn’t step forward faster, Ellen DeGeneres‘ ex reacted:
“First of all, you were threatened the second you walk out the door. I personally did not suck Harvey’s dick, although he showed it to me and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact… The fact is, I was fired from a job I had been hired for in Miramax. The repercussions of standing up for yourself were as deep and targeted as some of the scars of the women who actually got more physically unfortunately involved.”
The thespian likewise implicates the disgraced officer of victimizing young, “very vulnerable” women who “come from hurt backgrounds.”
“You’re talking about girls, young actresses are very vulnerable. A lot of us come from hurt backgrounds. What happens when you come from a broken place, you don’t have any guidance, you don’t have support, a parent you can go to. And you certainly don’t want to go to Harvey’s partner and say this happened. You come to LA, you’re alone, you don’t have friends that you are being able to talk to and that’s what he takes advantage of, that isolated, vulnerable girl… That’s why every one of us was 19, 20, 21 or 22. He didn’t go after the 40 year old woman. He hits on me when I’m 19, 20, 21, 22, vulnerable, scared, frightened.”
However, Heche credits her inefficient youth with offering her the nerve to leave Weinstein’s supposed attack.
“If I wasn’t sexually abused as a child, I don’t know if I would have had the strength to stand up to Harvey and many others.”
Luckily, she states “there is no bigger monster” in Hollywood than Weinstein, and “it’s great that he’s being taken down.”
We echo Anne’s words, and we hope substantial modification will originate from these reports.
