“I was raped by Harvey Weinstein in Cannes in 1997. I was 21-years-old. This festival was his hunting ground. I’m going to make a prediction: Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here again. He will never disgrace the community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes,” she told the crowd.

“Even tonight there are those that still need to be held accountable for his behavior. You do not belong in this industry. You know who you are. We are not going to allow you to get away with it any longer.”

Asia was among some of the first women to come forward with allegations of rape against the producer last year, which set off massive global movements about sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood and beyond.

Harvey has denied the assault via spokesperson.

Georgina Chapman Breaks Silence on Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Georgina Chapman, who is married to Harvey Weinstein and will reportedly go through divorce proceedings, is breaking her silence for the first time since the sexual misconduct allegations broke months ago.

The 42-year-old Marchesa co-founder spoke with Vogue about the aftermath. Here’s what she shared…

On the aftermath of the Weinstein scandal: “I was so humiliated and so broken . . . that . . . I, I, I . . . didn’t think it was respectful to go out…I thought, Who am I to be parading around with all of this going on? It’s still so very, very raw. I was walking up the stairs the other day and I stopped; it was like all the air had been punched out of my lungs.”

On seeking therapy: “At first I couldn’t, because I was too shocked. And I somehow felt that I didn’t deserve it. And then I realized: This has happened. I have to own it. I have to move forward. There was a part of me that was terribly naive—clearly, so naive. I have moments of rage, I have moments of confusion, I have moments of disbelief! And I have moments when I just cry for my children. What are their lives going to be? What are people going to say to them?…It’s like, they love their dad. They love him. I just can’t bear it for them!”

On if she was suspicious of her husband: “Absolutely not. Never. And I’ve never been one of those people who obsesses about where someone is.”

Rose McGowan Talks Matt Lauer, Jill Messick, Harvey Weinstein & More in 'THR'

Rose McGowan strikes a stunning pose on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue, on newsstands today.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Charmed actress had to share with the mag:

On her experience with the late Jill Messick: Harvey [Weinstein] attended the premiere of [Rose's film] Going All the Way, in which she has a topless scene. After it came onscreen, Rose claims, she saw her then-manager Jill turn and nod to the mogul. It was Jill who set up the meeting the next morning between Harvey and Rose at the Stein Eriksen Lodge that Rose says ended with her being sexually assaulted in a hot tub.

On Jill’s tragic suicide: “We need to look at the real person who’s behind this. That person has blood on his hands, and we all know, once again, who I’m talking about.” (The Messick family declines to comment further on Rose.)

On why she helped kill Ronan Farrow‘s NBC News story: “NBC took a lot of heat for killing the story. But I actually served Ronan with a cease and desist — two of them … I did not want my rape spoken about over breakfast cereal on the Today show. I’d heard about Matt Lauer. You can’t tell me the people at the top of NBC aren’t aware. Come on.”

… “I was never going to let my story be on NBC, but I wanted to ensure that the Times would do it, and everybody before had folded. So I pitted [Ronan] against The New York Times. I understand how men work and how Hollywood works and how power works. People are going to be much more interested in going down the line with something if they know they’re competing with somebody else.”

Harvey Weinstein Responds to Ashley Judd Defamation Lawsuit

Harvey Weinstein is lashing back after Ashley Judd announced that she has filed a lawsuit for attempting to ruin her career.

The 50-year-old actress – who was one of the first to come forward when the 66-year-old disgraced producer‘s scandal came to light – says that Harvey smeared her reputation to Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, leading him to not cast her.

Ashley is seeking damages for defamation, sexual harassment, and violations of California’s unfair business competition law.

After the suit was filed, a representative of Harvey‘s had this to say on the disgraced producer’s behalf:

“The most basic investigation of the facts will reveal that Mr. Weinstein neither defamed Ms. Judd nor ever interfered with Ms. Judd’s career, and instead not only championed her work but also repeatedly approved her casting for two of his movies over the next decade,” THR reports. “The actual facts will show that Mr. Weinstein was widely known for having fought for Ms. Judd as his first choice for the lead role in Good Will Hunting and, in fact, arranged for Ms. Judd to fly to New York to be considered for the role. Thereafter, Ms. Judd was hired for not one, but two of Mr. Weinstein’s movies, Frida in 2002 and Crossing Over with Harrison Ford in 2009. We look forward to a vigorous defense of these claims.”

Ashley Judd Sues Harvey Weinstein for Sexual Harassment & Harming Her Career

Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein, claiming he sabotaged her career.

The 50-year-old Double Jeopardy actress filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (April 30), accusing the 66-year-old disgraced film producer of retaliating against her because she turned down his sexual advances.

Ashley, who was one of the first to come forward when Harvey‘s scandal came to light, says that Harvey smeared her reputation to Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, leading him to not cast her.

Mr. Weinstein’s abusive conduct toward others has caused no end of damage to aspiring actors and others in the film and entertainment industry,” she said in a statement. “As my experience and the experience of others shows, even a few false statements from Mr. Weinstein could destroy potentially career-changing professional opportunities. It’s time that Mr. Weinstein be held accountable for that conduct and for the ways in which he’s damaged careers.”

She is seeking damages for defamation, sexual harassment, and violations of California’s unfair business competition law.
