Weinstein on indefinite leave as company investigates allegations

HuffPost spoke to a friend of Sivan's who was with her that night who corroborated details of Sivan's story prior to and after the incident in the restaurant hallway, and shared additional details about that evening. "Luckily I didn't need a job or favour from him [plus] didn't have to be polite. Others did. Keep that in mind".

Actress Ashley Judd was among the people in the article who say they were harassed by the producer, who has been a fixture in Hollywood power circles for nearly four decades.

"She came to me directly and said that [Weinstein] had appeared naked in her bedroom", says Karlsen, adding that Miramax had rented a house in London to cut down on overheads.

"We headed upstairs to Harvey's room and opened another bottle of champagne while we waited for the gang to arrive".

"I would hope that that's the end", she says.

Film production company The Weinstein Co said in a emailed statement that its co-chairman was no longer employed, effective immediately.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer and MA senator Elizabeth Warren have already given thousands of dollars in Weinstein donations to charity.

But the crisis worsened.

The meandering letter apologized for his "behavior" and the "pain" it caused, but also raged at such unrelated topics as the National Rifle Association and President Donald Trump.

But the Academy Award-winning star is one of many actresses who've worked with the embattled movie mogul, who've said nothing of this high-profile scandal.

"As Harvey has said, it is important for him to get the professional help for the problems he has acknowledged".

After Thursday's article revealed he had settled with at least eight women, more women have come forward accusing Weinstein of harassment, including one television reporter who said Weinstein cornered her in 2007 and masturbated in front of her. "It takes bravery to do so", actor Seth Rogen tweeted on Saturday.

The company began by acquiring independent films and distributing them in North America.

Lisa Bloom, a lawyer then advising Weinstein, said Thursday that he "denies numerous accusations as patently false", and Weinstein's attorney Charles Harder said his client was preparing a lawsuit against the Times.

Karlsen blames a "culture of fear" as to why the industry had largely remained silent about Weinstein.
