In a 2018 interview with The Sunday Times, she knew that many actresses were linked to Weinstein which affected their reputation. Stating that the rumors stemmed from the former producer himself, she shared,

“I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f**king angry. People would say, ‘Well, you know how she got that role? She f**ked Harvey.’ I would say, ‘Shut the f**k up. You don’t know that.’”

She continued,

“Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked … They didn’t sleep with Harvey. Harvey wanted you to think that.”

Due to his massive influence in the industry, she was quite “afraid” when his heinous crimes came to the surface.

The allegations also sparked a #MeToo social media campaign which influenced many to speak up about the injustice they suffered at the hands of powerful people.

Harvey Weinstein was found guilty and convicted on charges of r*pe in 2021 and has been sentenced to 23 years in prison. While he is serving his previous sentence, he has been given an additional 16 years in prison for r*ping an actress in 2013.
