Harvey Weinstein Apologizes for Using Meryl Streep & Jennifer Lawrence's Names in Lawsuit

Harvey Weinstein is apologizing for using statements made by Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence in his defense in a sexual misconduct class action suit.

The producer issued a statement on Wednesday (February 22).

Mr. Weinstein acknowledges the valuable input both Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence have contributed to this conversation and apologizes. Moving forward, Mr. Weinstein has advised his counsel to not include specific names of former associates; and to avoid whenever possible, even if they are in the public record,” his reps said.

Both Meryl and Jennifer issued strong statements denouncing the usage of their names.

Mr. Weinstein has been informed that his civil counsel responded in court to a class action lawsuit which improperly sought to include all actresses who had previously worked with Mr. Weinstein, even where those actresses have made no claim of wrongdoing. Even though Mr. Weinstein has worked with hundreds of actresses and actors who had only professional and mutually respectful experiences with him, Mr. Weinstein has directed in the future that no specific names be used by his counsel, even where those actors have made previous public statements about him.”
