This may come as a shock but there are probably a handful of women who just fucked him, no big trauma. Sound like she is saying she never fucked him but maybe she did. There are so many women eager to tell what a scum bag he is, we can be sure he's a slime ball and maybe a criminal. This doesn't mean every single woman who ever fucked him must say he raped and assaulted them.

Neither Renée nor Charlize were huge stars in 2000. They were up-and-comers, but nowhere near household names. If he'd wanted to brag, he could have dropped much bigger names.

Yep! I think she’s very talented - but she wasn’t conventionally good looking - yet seemed to be in everything for a few years there. Hard to understand how that came about - without connections...
Ditto the Paltrow. She’s better looking - but still not model beautiful (it takes a lot of makeup and lighting and digital manipulation to make her look really great) - and she was a lot less talented - but also kept getting gigs in everything.
They’re not the only ones I’m sure.

Renee actually had a slow and steady rise in showbiz. Small roles in Texas then some independent films then a lead in an independent film with Vincent D'Onifrio that got her an Independent Spirit Nominination (which she had trouble getting to attend because she was still tending bar at the time.)
That acclaim got her into the auditions for Jerry McGuire and then the success of that film led to other stuff. Nurse Betty and such. Bridget Jones' she got on the basis of a very good audition where she was quite funny and beat out a lot of more serious British actresses (Kate Winslet etc.)
Chicago she supposedly got from approaching Rob Marshall and working hard with him on her dancing and then he became her champion for the role.

Unfortunately I believe Harvey had sex with Renee, Charlize, Gwyneth, Angelina and Jennifer
|by Anonymous||reply 29||12/07/2017|
Unfortunately, I believe Harvey on this one. Chicago had been kicking around for years, but somebody greenlighted it and Renee, who had no background in musicals, ended up with the lead. In Cold Mountain, she got a part of someone who's clearly mixed race in the book and snagged an Oscar as well. She broke out on Jerry McGuire, but she wasn't in Oscar-bait movies 'til Miramax. Bridget Jones was a very sought-after role--she did it well, but was her audition really that much better than Kate Winslet--who can be quite funny (Spotless Mind)?
It's been talked about before how Charlize Theron got passed around--beautiful young woman with no connections. I first noticed her in 2 Days in the Valley, but it took her several years to break out. She hasn't denied it, either, just said her experience wasn't the same as the others with Weinstein. Doesn't mean the casting couch didn't happen.
Both women are now fairly fucked up. Zellwegger sounds drugged out, while Theron's just a bitch--she sounds like she's a tougher cookie than Zellwegger, though.

Please. Harvey is not more credible than Renee.
Before her first Weinstein film, Renee had done Dazed and Confused and The Whole Wide World. She had a lot of buzz around her. Her first Weinstein film was a small budget indie, which she did around the same time she worked with Meryl on One True Thing and was getting tons of bigger scripts. I'm not buying that she fucked Harvey for anything just on Harvey's say so.

Gwyneth was really pretty in A Perfect Murder even with ugly makeup and Brad Pitt hair. I hate her now, but she wasn't ugly. A lot of times she didn't wear eye makeup (she didn't need it) and she didn't get her big nose fixed. With so many unattractive actresses then and now, it's weird to act like she was an anomaly. Her face came the closest of almost any actress to looking like a subpar Grace Kelly. Doesn't that mean anything!?! I agree though that she probably fucked Harvey.

Renee and Matthew were not teens 24 years ago. I thought her silence on the Weinstein matter was classy. Like ScarJo and Zeta Jones she chose not to lie or comment. So many other actresses played the nobility game. Most didn't sleep with Fatso. But the denial runs deep with a few.

Of course Squinty Eyes willingly fucked Weinstein for roles! And I am positive she is not alone on his casting couch. With all of Harvey's unbelievably sleazy failed attempts and sexual assault (born from anger, not lust dearies) claims coming to light, it begs the question: Why would he go after these women so aggressively if he DIDN'T have previous success with willing sluts like Renee and Charlize? Of course, he became aggressive when women refused: "Goddamit, Charlize let me ass fuck her twice, why won't you put out cunt"? Why do some of you persist in thinking Hollywood is all about talent. For the most part, it is about who you know and who you fuck, always has been.

J. Law didn't come out of nowhere, though--she snagged an Oscar nom. with Winter's Bone--her casting as Katniss followed that--the Winter's Bone character was a tough girl from Applachia, which is basically what the Katniss character is.
I'm more inclined to think J.Law hooked up with David O' Russell--because he did cast her in roles for which other actresses were better suited.

People say dumb things all the time R104. You just had a moment. To say that Zellweger is a questionable talent is ridiculous. I don't think there is anyone as versatile and interesting as her in film now. Anne Hathaway maybe, also hated on DL but also very talented. Renee is a very good comedienne and comic actress. Quite good at the absurd and a great scratchy line reader of horror. (eating disorder) She actually CAN sing a bit but more important she sings authentically. Not a beauty but a capable charmer and every bit capable of the cinderella moment she needed in Jerry Maguire. That she wasn't quite at Tom Cruise's pay grade was part of the plot. Bonnie Hunt as her sister says you're having your Audrey Hepburn moment, and yes she did. Did you see Cold Mountain? She won the Oscar Butterfly McQueen was denied! I love Renee. Watch One True Thing and see how great and subtle and real she is. Seriously. She's better than Streep and as good as William Hurt.
Kathy Griffin called her a sweaty puffy coke whore, allegedly. She had eating disorders, plantar fasciitis, some eyelid surgery, problems with men, fame and a very curious personality. She probably had sex with Harvey Weinstein BUT still doesn't deserve to be compared to Jennifer Lawrence R104. Renee Zellweger is a real actress, not just a piece of talent.

R12 RZ got great roles from 2000-2004 because she blew up with Jerry Maguire at the end of 1996, showed promise in studio roles that followed and then landed the Bridget Jones role which was a worldwide phenomenon. Gave her a few years as a high earning leading lady studio actress...then had lead role in Chicago in 2003 which won best picture.
|by Anonymous||reply 135||12/10/2017|
According to Australian actress, Toni Collette, the role could have been hers. “I was doing The Wild Party on Broadway when I was offered Bridget Jones’s Diary,” she told The Scoop in 2005. “But I couldn’t do it because I didn’t know how long The Wild Party was going to play.” While many Brits were sceptical about the casting of Texas-born Renee Zellweger in the role, the film turned out to be a smash, and the actress received rave reviews for her funny, charming, relatable performance. Ironically, that success would lead to Toni Collette missing out on another high profile role to Renee Zellweger. “The producers of [the eventually Oscar winning musical] Chicago said, ‘We want you to do this! Don’t take anything else. We want to put you on tape just as a formality. Catherine Zeta-Jones is really excited to work with you.’ Then Bridget Jones’s Diary came out, and I guess that the Weinsteins [the backers of both films] had their way.”

Would It Have Worked? Yes, without question. Though Renee Zellweger surprisingly made the role her own (tarnishing her work slightly with the dire 2004 sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, but recapturing a little of her original glory with the far better Bridget Jones’s Baby), Toni Collette is far more suited to the part physically, and her extraordinary gifts as an actress would have brought equal sass and charming cynicism to the much loved character.

Look, she slept with him to make it in Hollywood, like a lot of other actresses. That is how you did it. And she was always a victim, something must have happened to her as a child. Everyone in Austin says she worked as a stripper while at UT. Strippers were usually victimized as kids. The problem is that neither men or women should have to sleep with a disgusting fuck to get a role. The problem Rene, Jennifer, M, and the others have is their utter embarrassment to have consensually slept with a gross, fat, rapist who masterbated in front of women. Look at the women who said no. How do these other women, who talk about female empowerment, explain they willingly slept with someone for parts that the rest of the world is grossing out about? And while you could question whether they thought they had a chance in the industry otherwise, they still slept with someone for roles and to make it ahead. That in itself has a special connotation for women that most men and a lot of women can't get over. They're whores, darling.

Theron and Zellwegger also had no connections or degrees from big conservatories/stage careers. I get the sense that Theron was a bit like Sharon Stone who just did whatever it took to keep getting roles.
Zellwegger has charisma, but she's an odd duck as far as beauty goes--I suspect even at the height of her careers, directors weren't knocking down doors to cast her. Unfortunately, she probably needed Miramax's female-focused properties.

This notion that she wasn't pretty enough for Hollywood is stupid. Renee is blond-haired and blue eyed with a tight little bod. That's already a huge leg up in Hollywood. But she was also pretty talented and pulled off a bunch of diverse roles early on. And she was quite adorable when she started out. She fit squarely into the kind of look that was big in the mid-90s--in the family of early Friends Jennifer Aniston, Helen Hunt, Jewel.
She created a huge buzz at the Oscars right around the time of getting cast in Chicago just by wearing this dress, "proving" she could pull of old school Hollywood glam:

There are people here desperate for the story that Goop blew Harvey to get the Oscar for that awful role to be true. She has never really been a struggling actress, in true princess style went to her boyfriend and parents to complain about Uncle Harvey being mean to her "make him stop" and, along with Jolie, was the first real big name to accuse him of harassment. Not a sign of someone who slept with Harvey. Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Renee Zellweger, otoh, were very ambitious and failure to break into Hollywood would mean returning to poverty.

I think Goop did him. What I suspect is that there's probably some truth to what she's been saying about the abuse she received. She wanted a career and an Oscar and she gained both after hooking up with Harvey. To be honest, she was a barely competent actress and although she was marginally more attractive than Renee, she lacked both the acting chops and the charisma.
she might have had contacts in the business from her family and that most likely helped a lot when she started out, however that was only ever going to take her so far. I know people make fun of her a lot but she always struck me as being very ambitious during the early stages of her career, and the competition to make it to the A list was stiff. All you have to do is look at the other well connected actresses from the time like Kate Hudson, most of them never became anywhere near as high profile as she did during her time at the top, and there where a lot of others who were far more attractive and talented than she was.
What she's saying now comes across as a way for Paltrow to save face, lots of people will remember the huge push she received from Havey around the time of SIL and they quite rightly think she was involved with him the same way as all the other actresses we know about. I also don't buy the princess act, I'll bet she was as ambitious as Renee, Theron and most likely took the same deal they did.

What I find interesting are the people who worked around him - other than the pretty young starlets and wannabes.
How did they feed the monster?
He was a bully. He wanted people to kowtow and humiliate themselves. So what did all the others have to go through to get deals and work with him? Did no one explode and call him on his bullshit when he was abusing them or others near them?
And what of Meryl? I’m a huge fan- and she was already a star and getting cast in his movies thanks to her abilities and brand recognition - but don’t think she was immune...
I mean: remember one of her acceptance speeches where she called him ‘God’ or something like that? At the time I thought it was kinda embarrassing and over the top. But in hindsight - think she’s very clever. She knows which side her bread is buttered, and sucking up like that - outrageously sycophantic! - but he’d LOVE such nonsense. It now looks like an astute business decision on her part...
When Weinstein croaks and can’t sue - oh the tell-alls that will come out!
I actually think some of the men hr treated badly will never open up and are more reluctant to come out than the women. They must feel utterly humiliated and that their fragile masculinity and little egos are at threat. If Weinstein behaved like a schoolyard bully - and all indications are he did - then they must feel ashamed by rolling over and taking it.

Goop fucked him. If Paul Sorvino couldn't help his daughter, why would anyone think Goop's could? They didn't have power. And if Spielberg had a problem with the casting couch why hasn't he done something before this? He could have made projects for his godaughter. More than likely Spielberg, who has a couch that casts, could have cared less if she had to fuck Weinstein for parts, that was part of the system. And Brad got to be the big wonderful man in this BS story Goop's told. So if Brad then knew, where are his statements now, what did he try to do to stop it? If he was able to protect Goop's and her career obviously Weinstein was so scared Brad knew that Brad could have gotten him to stop harassing all women, right? Wrong, bullshit story that protected Goop while making Brad look like a big hero.

I think Reese is one of the sharper women in Hollywood. She was pretty cagey about how she managed a comeback from her drunken rant and she moved into producing successfully. She was young when she started--I expect she knew about Weinstein and chose to avoid him. It meant not doing prestige pictures for Miramax and having to wait on the Oscar nod, but she's also not the wreck that Renee Zellwegger is.
I'm more inclined to suspect the actresses who had a period of role after role without being all that popular--Goop, Renee, Nicole. Sounds like Charlize might have slept/blew him, but then told him to go to hell later on.
With Nicole, if something happened, I'm guessing it was after her divorce from Tom Cruise left her without a serious toehold in Hollywood. She did some stuff back in Australia and may have seen Harvey as the only way to save her career.

What Ian McKellen fails to acknowledge is that those actresses who refused to play the "sex in exchange" for roles game were blacklisted, mocked, sneered at and verbally abused out of the industry. It's absolutely disgusting the entertainment industry only gave roles to actresses if they were prepared to be used sexually rather than based on actual talent.

Because of Jerry McGuire and buzz for a really good performance in The Whole Wide World. From that she got One True Thing, Nurse Betty, Me Myself & Irene and Bridget Jones Diary. None of those were Weinstein-associated films. She was already cast in Bridget Jones Diary when Miramax acquired the distribution rights. During that time, her only Miramax film was an indie called The Price Above Rubies. However inexplicable her rise to stardom, it wasn't because of Harvey.

Well I don't doubt Weinstein tried to convince some actresses to sleep with him by telling them he slept with every other high profile actress and they had to do it too if they wanted to become high profile too.
Oldest trick in the book.
Weinstein’s former personal assistant Zelda Perkins gave a very interesting interview to the BBC about how her former boss was addicted to power and how he was manipulating people to get what he wanted.
|by Anonymous||reply 281||12/27/2017|
The Zelda Perkins interview is interesting. She says she was aware Weinstein was “intimate” with some big stars! Goop, Renee Zellweger and Charlize Theron were absolutely 3 of them. Chicago stirs this mess up.
The whole Roxie Hart casting was cloak and dagger.
Catherine Zeta Jones was the first cast. This was the first stage musical adaptation in years and there were no actors in Hollywood (then) with musical theatre experience, bar Catherine Zeta Jones who had been a West End player. She was offered Roxie Hart, having never seen Chicago she said she wanted to play the part that sang ‘All That Jazz’. There’s nothing iffy about CZJ’s casting, it was common sense to have at least one actor in it with musical theatre experience and Zeta Jones performance spoke for itself.
From when it was green lit Miramax wanted Renee Zellweger for the role of Roxie. In truth, she was the right type as she has that Shirley MacLaine quality about her, in which she can make an unlikeable character likeable. However, Zellweger turned the role down continuously as she wouldn’t sing.
Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow was next in line for the part, but that died a death very early. Likelyhood being she stunk in the screen tests!
Rob Marshall has stated many times that Toni Collette gave the best audition. He wanted her for the part. Weinstein Black balled this and said Charlize Theron had to play it. I don’t know what happened, but I do know Rob Marshall was the one who convinced Zellweger to play the part by doing some singing with her. So when Zellweger agreed Theron was dropped. Theron would have been totally wrong for Roxie as ultimately Roxie is an underdog goofy character. Gwen Verdon created her with Fosse very specifically and Theron would have balanced too evenly with Zeta Jones playing a role which is supposed to be the more sultry character.
The most interesting one is the role of Mama Morton. Marshall has brought Kathy Bates to the table for the role. He’d worked with her on Annie and she was the ideal type. But Weinstein said the part had to go to Queen Latifa! I can’t see her fucking Weinstein!
