Dumbo actress Eva Green has spoken about her experience of Harvey Weinstein in a new interview.
He was like a God, she said.
He could make you, destroy you. You think, maybe something will change – I could win an Oscar! So the first time you meet him you feel privileged.
Green was revealed as an alleged victim of Weinstein in 2017 when her mother, French actress Marlène Jobert, told a radio station that the film producer had attempted to physically assault her in a hotel room in Paris.
She managed to escape, but he threatened to destroy her professionally, Jobert said.
Referring to the police investigation and the subsequent #MeToo movement, Green told ES Magazine what has happened to Weinstein after the wave of rape and sexual assault allegations is a miracle.
There is justice. But you know, there are a***holes everywhere, in every field, she added.
Weinstein is facing charges of rape, sexual abuse and sexual misconduct against two victims and after posting the $1 million bail required, is due back in court on 3 June.
I met him for a business meeting in Paris at which he behaved inappropriately and I had to push him off. I got away without it going further, but the experience left me shocked and disgusted, she said.
