Jennifer Lawrence Condemns Harvey Weinstein's Actions: 'This Abuse is Inexcusable'

Jennifer Lawrence is speaking out against Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of decades of sexual harassment by multiple women.

The 27-year-old actress worked with Harvey‘s production company on her film Silver Linings Playbook, which earned her the Oscar for Best Actress.

“I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior. I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting,” Jennifer said in a statement to JustJared.com.

She added, “My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”

Jennifer is one of many celebrities speaking out against Harvey, including George Clooney, Kate Winslet and Glenn Close.

    Surprised she doesn’t feel ugly. She wasn’t good enough to be sexually harassed.

    This situation makes me laugh so much. Like “NOBODY” knew about it…

  • FerCat

    Well, to her it wasn’t harassment because she benefited from Harvey.

    “nor did I know about any of these allegations”

    BITCH PLEASE everyone knows you were one of his pets.

  • Ellen Ripley

    yeah NONE of the famous actresses had to sVck d!ck to get where they are, NONE. They didn’t start as nobodies somewhere, they were born famous. I mean they know of horrible stories but only about actresses who didn’t make it.

  • Jen

    Of course she knew!

  • persononhere

    i kinda believe her, i mean she doesn’t strike me as the brightest bulb. she probably didn’t know.

    I’m actually shocked she released a statement, with all the rumors surrounding her and him. Girl has major daddy issues and there’s a good chance she was one of his victims without even realizing it.

  • Gale

    She wasn’t his victim coz I’m pretty sure she was a willing participant for fame and fortune.

  • Gina

    She and Alicia Vikander should’ve released a joint statement…

  • Vanity

    “This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting” is she serious? its beyond upsetting ITS CRIMINAL. ffs stfu Lawrence we all know those casting couch photos were for him.

    It is a wellknown fact that JLaw and Blake Lively are 2 of “Weinstein’s Girls”

    she might be one of those victims that stays silent. she follows the pattern of being a nobody, possibly sleeping with him, and then getting an oscar from his film. there are probably tons of big names that still won’t step up, and will want to leave it in the past.

  • Michele V

    A nobody? She had been nominated for an Oscar and was starring in The Hunger Games.

  • persononhere

    the Oscar nom/win was for HIS MOVIE (2013, probably filmed 2011/2012) which would have been filmed almost the same time/right after the first HG (2012, probably filmed 2010). she was just starting out.

  • Michele V

    Um, no. She had been nominated for an Oscar way back in 2011 for Winter’s Bone. That is widely considered to be her breakthrough role.

  • BladeR

    LOL at Vikander. Her Oscar and career have nothing to do with him. The irony is that her only film released by his company came out this summer after three years,and was barely promoted.

  • Gina

    Well, didn’t he endorse her once upon a time. I doubt it was for free. Plus, I never said anything about her Oscar & career being attributed to him.
