Renee Zellweger denies having sex with Harvey Weinstein in exchange for film roles

Apparently he mentioned he'd been sleeping with her in legal papers.

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.

I don’t believe Renee because she has seem traumatized and out of it for years. She exchanged sex for favors like many of Harvey’s young protégés

by Anonymousreply 2712/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 2812/07/2017

Unfortunately I believe Harvey had sex with Renee, Charlize, Gwyneth, Angelina and Jennifer

by Anonymousreply 2912/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 3812/07/2017

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.

by Anonymousreply 3912/07/2017

Angelina might not have slept with him, but she's not being honest about refusing to work with him. She auditioned for Chicago and was in talks for Silver Linings Playbook. She's just pulling her self-righteous bullshit.

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.

Here she is (during her brief foray into having eyebrows) with Brad Pitt's sunglasses:

Another thing: Bridget Jones' Diary was distributed by Miramax in the US, but it was not a Weinstein production. It was not a pet project of Harvey's like Chicago was, and Miramax bought in after Renee was cast. Miramax did that with a number of UK film productions.

There was a story circulating around DL about how she was cast as an extra in "Dazed and Confused" (1993) with Matty. (They were both Texan teens at the time.) According to DL at the time, she was very, very appreciative of Matty's and his friends' assistance for being cast, even though her role in the film was 'non-credited.'

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.

Meryl was the most ridiculous of all and he didn't even try to fuck her. I dig Zellweger but she's a fragile mess of disorders and bad habits.

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.

Upon realizing it was her name that was called for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress that year, both Cathy and Renee had jumped up, Cathy in her excitement to win the award, and Renee to celebrate Cathy's award by opening her arms for a congratulatory hug. (Renee had won the same award the year before for "Cold Mountain.")

Well, Renee's celebratory hug was not to be, alas. Our Royal Cathy immediately grabbed Renee's hands, pushing her away to prevent it.

Funny that consenting adults having sex whether it was for a role or advancement can now being considered coercion and abuse of power.

It brings serious sexual abuse to the level of a joke. Nothing wrong with using sex for bartering purposes if you're an adult. You can say yes or no.

Rape, groping, verbal harassment and exposing yourself is a completely different thing.

I have no respect for consumer remorse. Too bad. Caveat Emptor.

If you get into the performing arts and are shocked and upset by the casting couch you have chosen your vocation very poorly.

by Anonymousreply 8812/08/2017

[R88] Agreed. The problem is that you're dealing with a subset of people whose lives and careers are built on pretense. Very few of them are mature, sober or honest enough to acknowledge the world they've chosen to live in. Thus all of the ridiculous virtue-signaling, pretend shock and cloaking themselves in an array of "worthy" causes to deflect attention from who they really are, which in most cases is rather pitiful.

I'm embarrassed for Renee Z. She's paying an unexpected tax on the fame she whored herself out for and it's beginning to seem not worth it. Fortunes rise and fall but you can't get your dignity back.

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.

I like Renee. Wish she were in more things . I don’t think she looks any less like her old self than Nicole Kidman, who is in everything . Is it true she is just a recluse? Perhaps the Hollywood machine or Weinstein really did a number on her . She was there ...... and then gone ( except for BJD )

Harvey didn't pick Renee for Jerry McGuire, Bridget Jones or One True Thing. This idea that she only has a career because of him is not rooted in reality.

Angelina also lied about not wanting to work with Harvey again she auditioned for at least 3 Weinstein produced films later

He just wouldn’t stop. It was relentless. And then he said, [bold]“Well, Renée did it and Charlize did it[/bold] and this other actress did it. Don’t you want your career to be more than just this little teen film?” I said, “No, I’m not interested, thank you very much.” He said, “Well, you can’t leave until you kiss me.” He literally would not let me leave. I said fine and kissed him on the lips. He sort of held my head and made me kiss him, and then he’s like, “OK, you can go now. That’s all I wanted. Just do what I say and you can get your way.”

Harvey said it, so it must be true.

And Harvey also said he's really really sorry and wants to change with rehab, so that must be true too.

Always believe the man. He has no reason to lie.

Considering he also went after Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, it's not hard to imagine Renee Zellweger, who hasn't done anything notable in 15 years.

by Anonymousreply 13012/09/2017

So he went after her, as in attacked her?

Or she fucked him for roles?

Yet she hasn't done anything notable in 15 years. So that means she did fuck him? Or didn't?

You're grasping and not making any sense. Conveniently, Renee just can't win.

I strongly suspect that there are numerous actresses who actually did have sex with him.

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 Anonymousreply 135Last Sunday at 1:28 AM

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.”

by Anonymousreply 136Last Sunday at 1:35 AM

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.

Toni Collette great actress that she is, is not cute enough to have been Bridget Jones or Roxie Hart.

Sorry,

She was very pretty tho.

She's interviewed on the Plz Advise podcast and describes the situation to a live audience--you can find it on iTunes.

by Anonymousreply 144Last Monday at 3:54 AM

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.

The proof is in how fast her career dried up once the Weinstein's sold Miramax to Disney (or moved on to Weinstein Co.). She couldn't get any parts after that. Same with Gwyneth, barring the Iron Man movies.

Charlize always seemed like a hardass. I thought she'd be the type to tell Heavy to go fuck himself.

by Anonymousreply 150Last Monday at 7:57 AM

[bold]The Oscar-winning actress shared her devastation over losing the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago — a part made famous by Renée Zellweger. She revealed, “The director kicked me off it. … I was really bummed about it. And I think because I had it, I was like, ‘Ah … I’m gonna make this movie’ and I got kicked off it.”

So Theron was kicked off the film by Rob Marshall and was replaced with another one of Harvey's girls

How many men have denied having sex with Renee Zellweger? The list grows longer each day.

by Anonymousreply 162Last Tuesday at 12:34 PM

Theron definitely fucked him. Zellweger and Goop probably did (though I'm not sure why the latter would have had to). I doubt Angelina did. No judgment either way, I would have too if he had the power to give me an Oscar-winning film career.

by Anonymousreply 163Last Tuesday at 1:13 PM

Charlize was in heaps of Miramax films in the 90s. She was ambitious as hell and from a broken family. I totally believe she blew Harvey.

Likewise Renee. Harvey seemed to adore her before she turned 35. Renee is witty and pretty and and appealing, but not the sex goddess he seemed to consider her as.

I believe Gwyneth that he propositioned her then abused her verbally and threatened to ruin her when she told Brad, her parents and her management. She had to publically crawl to him for years in order for him not to destroy her. I believe Blythe's letter to the Times as well.

How do you blow or fuck Harvey?

Like with Jimmy Levine it seems beyond comprehension.

Maybe prostitutes wouldn't go near him.

Only at the very least an Oscar is worth it for some people. It wouldn't be for me despite the fact it would be nice to have one in my home as a conversation piece.

by Anonymousreply 167Last Tuesday at 2:13 PM

r167, I imagine you close your eyes and think of the money and success he is promising, many can turn off feelings for a quickie, I doubt Harvey is asking for a cuddle and conversation anyway.

r166, if you do a search, you will find a couple, I know Justin Timberlake was one that was talked about.

Old gay men act so disingenuous all the damn time. Like you even saw the face of most of the men who mounted you in bathhouses and alleyways. Sex barters are not always clear cut business - no Oscars are promised anyone. Actors want to work and be seen. Most of you have you have engaged with gross men in exchange for a medium fry and coke.

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.

by Anonymousreply 174Last Tuesday at 3:09 PM

People talk about Renee as if she were fucking Quasimodo. She isn't. She may have had squinty eyes (she's had plastic surgery on them to open them up), but she's still attractive and acting should be about acting. They don't need to look like fucking supermodels.

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. Of course they slept with him.
