J.J. Abrams Speaks Out About Harvey Weinstein: 'He's a Monster'

J.J. Abrams is the latest member of Hollywood to speak out about Harvey Weinstein amid the movie producer’s ongoing sexual assault scandal.

The 51-year-old director gave his thoughts on Harvey to THR while at the 15th annual Gala in the Garden at The Hammer Museum on Saturday (October 14) in Los Angeles.

“Someone said to me the other day that they are sick of hearing people talk about how disgusting it is,” the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director said.

“I don’t think enough can be said about how viciously repulsive his abuse of power was. He’s a monster. There are other monsters but there are those who fight monsters and tonight is all about those who fight monsters.”

Keri Russell Reunites with Scott Speedman at Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony

Keri Russell poses for a cute photo with her former Felicity co-star Scott Speedman while receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday afternoon (May 30) in Hollywood.

The 41-year-old actress was also joined by the show’s creator J.J. Abrams, who spoke at the ceremony.

Keri received support from her partner Matthew Rhys and their The Americans co-stars Noah Emmerich and Holly Taylor as well.

“At first I thought, ‘Do they know something I don’t know? Does this mean it’s over for me?,’ Keri joked about receiving the star (via Variety). “Because when I think of stars on Hollywood Boulevard, I think of Judy Garland or someone really famous. I know I’m not 20, but is this the twilight of my career? It’s hugely iconic and part of me definitely feels like it’s been a mistake, but I’m going for it anyway.”

FYI: Keri is wearing a Johanna Ortiz shirt, Chloe slacks, a Celine bag, and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
