Felicity Huffman Says Harvey Weinstein Threatened Her Career If She Didn't Wear His Wife's Brand Marchesa

Felicity Huffman has revealed that Harvey Weinstein refused to spend any money promoting her 2005 film Transamerica unless she donned his wife Georgina Chapman‘s brand, Marchesa, on the red carpet.

The 54-year-old actress is the latest to speak out about the disgraced film producer’s sexual harassment and assault allegations this past week.

“Yeah, it’s true,” Felicity told TooFab last night (October 12) at the Eva Longoria Foundation Gala in Los Angeles.

“He was the mastermind behind Marchesa – orchestrating deals and using his influence in terms of the celebrity connections for her on behalf of the brand,” a publicist has told The Hollywood Reporter, explaining that “[Harvey] and [Georgina] both benefited from the relationship, but she certainly knew about his bad behavior.”

L.A.-based designer Kevan Hall, who worked with Felicity on numerous occasions, added, “I was disappointed when she told me that she could not wear my gown for her nomination for Transamerica because the ‘godfather’ said she had to wear ‘his girlfriend’s collection.’”

Sienna Miller also reportedly had to wear Marchesa when she sat with Harvey and Georgina at the Golden Globes, as “he would be very upset if she didn’t wear Marchesa,” according to another publicist.

It was recently announced that Georgina is separating from Harvey. Read what she had to say here.

    Obviously he is gross, but Marchesa has gorgeous gowns…

    she looks so beautiful in this picture and she is a great actress like her husband is a great actor. love the both

  • Honeybee

    Marchesa makes beautiful clothes, but pressuring women to
    wear them is just another instance of him exerting and abusing his power over people he thought of as subordinates. It looks like if he did not get a chance to force them out of their clothes, he forced them into his (wife’s) clothes! Just another power trip👿!

    It’s okay saying Georgina knew about his behaviour but if he behaved the way he did with actresses, what the hell was he like behind closed doors with his wife? There’s a very real probability she’s also a victim, perhaps not physically abused, but I can imagine psychologically, he’s a bully. I expect this coming all becoming public has given her the opportunity to leave a man she’s wanted to for a while but he held control of Marchesa and her entire career

    she has a hot side piece of her own so she is fine lol

  • Adeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Georgina stood by him all these years because he was helping her sell her cheap prom dresses on red carpet. That bitch ain’t no victim, she was one of his enablers & needs to be investigated just like all his accomplices.
