Jessica Chastain Praises BFF Jess Weixler for Sharing Her Harvey Weinstein Story

Jessica Chastain Praises BFF Jess Weixler for Sharing Her Harvey Weinstein Story

Jessica Chastain and Jess Weixler hit the red carpet while attending the 2017 Hammer Museum Gala on Saturday night (October 14) in Los Angeles.

The BFFs took to social media that day to talk about Harvey Weinstein. Jess shared her own experience with the disgraced producer and Jessica reposted the story and praised her friend for opening up.

“I’ll say I am very grateful I was warned. I had multiple women protecting me with stories. There were several years of Harvey propositioning me, combined with requests for meetings about scripts, and talk of what directors he could introduce me to,” Jess wrote. “Thank goodness I heard enough not to go. Grabbing my arm at crowded parties and telling me my fiancé wasn’t invited to be at Cannes when we were there promoting Rigby. Being told he wouldn’t be able to get into events if he came. The accounts I’ve heard of what happened to others are devastating. In a time when the press killed stories and DAs ignored evidence, there was an underground network of women protecting women. And I’m just so grateful to the women who warned and protected me.”

Jessica and Jess worked together on The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, which was distributed by The Weinstein Company.

“Much love to you sister ❤. Thank you for sharing your story with the world. You are a warrior,” Jessica wrote.

    I’ve seen a lot of comments in the last few weeks about “why” did the women not come forward. Now you have it, the DA ignored evidence and the press killed stories that women were telling who were trying to come forward. So many of the women in Hollywood were forced to protect each other. This is so sad but an unfortunate reality in many industries. I hope Weinstein’s downfall is the beginning of the end of this abuse of power.

    The more ladies stand up to Weinstein and his breed of ‘ powerful men’ the better off we all are in the end. Victims both men and women, will be sparred and Hollywood itself can drain its own swamp of the filth that gave us Trump and Weinstein in the first place.

    Women need to be encouraged to stand up and speak out and create a union solely for busting these predators in court.

    It will never be because women since the beginning of time are users, who will do anything to get ahead. Jane Fonda called Trump a pig and a male chauvinist, all the liberals applauded and yet she new about Harvey and did nothing cause it could effect her career.
