Jennifer Lawrence Responds to New Harvey Weinstein Story Involving Her

Jennifer Lawrence is speaking out after her name was brought up in a new story involving disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein is being sued by a Jane Doe who claims that he “forcibly performed oral sex on her, repeatedly masturbated in front of her and threatened to harm her career if she objected,” according to court documents revealed by Variety.

The accuser says that Weinstein told her, “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has just won an Oscar.”

Jennifer won an Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, which was produced by Weinstein. She released a statement in which she denied having a sexual relationship with the producer.

“My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein,” she said. “I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him. This is yet another example of the predatory tactics and lies that he engaged in to lure countless women.”

Weinstein‘s lawyers refute the claims in the lawsuit and also name-checked Jennifer in their statement.

“This lawsuit was filed and updated strategically with no notice given or any attempt to reach out to Mr. Weinstein’s attorneys for one reason; It was meant to embarrass Mr. Weinstein and garner unchecked media attention,” the legal team told Vulture.

“There is absolutely no truth to the malicious claims made in this lawsuit, and we are reviewing our options with an eye on filing for an immediate dismissal. Mr. Weinstein is embarrased for Ms. Lawrence with whom he has only had a professional and respectful relationship, who has sadly been dragged into this ugly attempt at defamation,” the statement continued. “This filing further proves that anyone can say whatever they want in a lawsuit for maximum shock value, to defame and debase, without having to offer any facts or reality.”

    Oh please. We all knew Lawrence is one of Weinstein’s girls even before the #metoo movement happened.

  • Camille

    Completely agree! Its embarrassing how her and Meryl Streep used to praise Harvey but as soon as the news about Harvey was made public they quickly turned their backs on him

  • JA Cavan

    She was already a big star before she ever worked with him. She wasn’t some unknown actress who needed roles. She was in demand and didn’t need to do anything like that. It sounds like he was trying to claim he was the reason for her success but she had already been in X-Men and The Hunger games and didn’t need him. If anything, he needed her more than she needed him.

  • Mike Gallett

    Dummy… Who you think produced Hunger Games? of course Harvey… Hailee Steinfeld was supposed to be in The Hunger Games..but apparently Weinstein gave it later to Jennifer

  • cuzjcacjo

    that’s not true, keep in mind that films are filmed YEARS before we actually see them. sometimes they film simultaneously, so at the time she was hired by him she wasn’t a huge star because those films were probably just being released.

  • Lexi

    She seemingly already had the part, he came along with Jennifer then boom, she got it.

  • Gina

    Sure, Jen.

  • FerCat

    Yes. People don’t get that.
    That’s why there are minor movies that suddenly rise from obscurity and equally good films don’t. There is studio backing behind them. It’s an investment on a future cashcow.
    So called Big stars don’t rise just by shear talent anymore.

  • Didi

    No one believes you Jennifer. We all know you rose out of obscurity because you are a casting couch ho bag. For years you had fun whoring around to rise in the ranks and get roles. You slept with Weinstein and this isn’t the first or the last time this is going to surface BECAUSE ITS TRUE

  • YupVideoFever

    Oh, Jenn, dear…

  • Lewisbieber

    she slept with him and her directors

  • Michele V

    She was already an Oscar nominee at that point and had won the part of Katniss. She didn’t need him to further her career.

  • Michele V

    Um, he didn’t produce The Hunger Games. Are you just making up facts now to prove your point.

  • Kat

    It must feel so dirty to sleep with someone like him. Its embarrassing I bet no one would want to admit that they slept their way to the top

  • Jason Bowen

    We all know that the woman that created the lawsuit is dumb whore Rose McGowan as she has been the one saying bullshit like that for the past year. Just got to look at the leaked porn videos Rose McGowan made to see what kind of woman she really is now.
