Lena Headey Details Encounters with Harvey Weinstein: 'I Felt Completely Powerless'

Lena Headey has released a lengthy statement on Twitter adding her name to the list of stars who have had encounters with Harvey Weinstein where they were subject to sexual misconduct.

“The first time I met Harvey Weinstein was at The Venice Film Festival. The Brothers Grimm was showing there, (during shooting I was subjected to endless bullying by the director Terry Gilliam). At one point Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked. I remember thinking, ‘It’s got to be a joke.’ I said something like, ‘Oh come on mate?! It’d be like kissing my dad! Let’s go get a drink, get back to the others.’ I was never in any other Miramax film,” the 44-year-old Game of Thrones actress wrote on her Twitter account.

Lena Headey Reveals the 'Game of Thrones' Death That Left Her Heartbroken

Lena Headey is on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, where she was interviewed by Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams!

Here’s what the 43-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On casting directors wanting her to flirt with them for jobs: “When I was in my twenties, and doing a lot of audition tapes in the States, a casting director told me: ‘The men take these tapes home and watch them and say, Who would you f***?’ I’ve never played the game of going in [to auditions] and flirting; I’ve never done it.”

On suffering postpartum depression while filming: “[Filming was] really horrendous – I was postnatally depressed but I didn’t know it. I saw a doctor for the medical check, and I just burst into tears. She said I was postnatally depressed and I went, ‘Am I? Why is that?’ I saw a great guy and he sorted me out, but I did the first year [on Game of Thrones] in that space, figuring out motherhood and going through a weird time personally. It was tricky.”

On the Game of Thrones death that left her heartbroken: “Last season I was doing [post-production] in LA and watched Hodor’s death. I was just weeping. The technician said, ‘Are you OK?’ and I went, ‘I didn’t know, I didn’t know he died.’ I was beside myself; genuinely heartbroken.”

Game of Thrones' Kit Harington Feels Like He's 'Made Mistakes' with Jon Snow

Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke are just two of the Game of Thrones stars highlighted in Time magazine’s profile of the hit HBO show!

Also featured are Sophie Turner, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Here’s what the cast shared…

Kit, on playing his character Jon Snow: “I made mistakes and felt that he wasn’t interesting enough. That sounds weird, but I’ve never been quite content with him. Maybe that’s what makes him him. That angst.”

Emilia, on filming scenes in the buff as her character Daenerys: “I don’t have any qualms saying to anyone it was not the most enjoyable experience. How could it be? I don’t know how many actresses enjoy doing that part of it.”

Sophie, on the rape of her character Sansa Stark: “This was the trending topic on Twitter, and it makes you wonder, when it happens in real life, why isn’t it a trending topic every time. This was a fictional character and I got to walk away from it unscathed … Let’s take that discussion and that dialogue and use it to help people who are going through that in their everyday lives. Stop making it such a taboo, and make it a discussion.”
