Kate Winslet Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein During Oscars Speech on Purpose

Kate Winslet is opening up about working with Harvey Weinstein on The Reader and how she purposely didn’t thank him when she won an Oscar for her role in the film.

The actress told THR about how Weinstein distributed her first movie and that he never let it go.

“He would come up to me every time I saw him, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie!’ He didn’t ‘give me’ my first movie – I auditioned for four months. Peter Jackson gave me the part. But, you know, how dare he even sow that seed in my mind, that in some way any part of my career had anything to do with him rooting for me or pushing for me or putting my name forward,” Kate said.

“He was just so horrible to deal with,” Kate added. “I was one of the ones he would label ‘difficult’ because I wouldn’t do the things he would ask for me to do on a business-level…. These were ridiculous requests…. He didn’t like me because I wouldn’t be bullied by him.”

Kate also opened up about how The Reader was supposed to be released a year after it came out in theaters, but Weinstein decided to release it at the same time as Revolutionary Road, her movie with then-husband Sam Mendes.

“I just thought to myself, ‘Well, if I can just get my own back in some way at this awful man, I’m not gonna thank him. If I happen to win that Oscar [for The Reader], I am not going to say thank you,’” Kate said. And she didn’t thank him.

Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Scandal is Turning into a Documentary

A documentary is officially in the works about the sexual harassment scandals involving Harvey Weinstein.

BBC Two announced on Monday that they have commissioned a two-part documentary detailing the multiple allegations against the disgraced film producer directed by Ursula MacFarlane.

“This film promises to be the definitive take on the Weinstein scandal,” BBC commissioner Tom McDonald said. “As well as revealing the inside story of the past few months in minute detail, it will also look to the past to tell the story of abuses of power within Hollywood since its very origins and chart the rise of Harvey Weinstein himself over many decades.”

The documentary will include interviews with many actresses who have come forward with stories against Harvey along with reporters and other Hollywood insiders.

No word yet when the documentary will be released.

Second Director Says Harvey Weinstein Blacklisted Mira Sorvino From Appearing in Film

Following Peter Jackson‘s recent interview, in which he said he believed he was unknowingly part of a “smear campaign” by Harvey and Bob Weinstein to prevent Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd from being cast in Lord Of The Rings, a second director is now stepping forward to agree with those suspicions.

Terry Zwigoff, the director of 2003 comedy Bad Santa, tweeted on Saturday (December 16) that he was interested in casting Mira – but the Weinstein Company allegedly hung up on him when he proposed the idea.

“I was interested in casting Mira Sorvino in BAD SANTA, but every time I mentioned her over the phone to the Weinsteins, I’d hear a CLICK. What type of person just hangs up on you like that?! I guess we all know what type of person now. I’m really sorry Mira,” he wrote.

After Harvey issued a statement denying Peter‘s telling of the story, Peter responded with a lengthy statement of his own.
