Judi Dench Defends the Art of Harvey Weinstein & Kevin Spacey

Judi Dench is speaking out in defense of the art of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

The 84-year-old actress, who did not defend their alleged behavior, expressed sadness in an interview with the Radio Times published on Tuesday (June 25).

“What kind of agony is that? Are we going to negate ten years at the Old Vic and everything that he [Kevin Spacey] did [as artistic director] — how wonderful he’s been in all those films?” she said.

“Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced? You cannot deny somebody a talent. You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting. You might as well never have gone to see Noel Coward.” (Caravaggio was a murderer, and Noel was accused of predatory behavior.)

Judi most recently appeared at the 2019 Chelsea Flower Show in London, England. Click here to see more from the event.
