Trial in the case of 67-year-old former film producer Harvey Weinstein is still ongoing. He was sued more than 40 women who accused a man of harassment and violence. This week the court was invited by one of his victims, a 40-year-old don Dunning, who gave his testimony. The woman gave the floor to get a clear picture of the behavior model of the Harvey.
Don said that Weinstein demanded sex from her, citing the example of the already popular at the time, Actresses Charlize Theron and Salma Hayek. He argued that due to its terms, the Actresses have become popular.
Don Dunning met Harvey a long time ago. At the age of 24 she came to new York and entered the College in the evenings she worked as a waitress at a local bar. In this institution, she met a producer who offered her a lead role in the movie “derailed” and other future projects. At that time don had just arrived from Ohio and had little experience as an actress.
The woman told how it happened. According to her, she denied Weinstein more than once. One day, after receiving another refusal, he started screaming it and waving contracts for the main roles. So he wanted to exchange a contract for sex. Harvey shouted to the girl that she will never be able to succeed in an acting career, because you can build it only through the bed. He also mentioned the three Actresses who “made” that way.
The Prosecutor asked about what three Actresses were talking about? Unfortunately, don could only remember Charlize Theron and Salma Hayek.
These two Actresses do not participate in legal proceedings against Harvey Weinstein. However, both supported the movement MeToo in 2017, when it started its momentum. Salma confirmed the fact of harassment and called the producer a real monster. But Charlize said that her life was not took with Weinstein, so it will not be slander, but I’m sure the other victims are telling the truth.
At the end of 2019, a presentation of the film “Scandal,” in which Theron played a major role. At this event the actress gave an interview and the conversation drifted into a discussion of Harvey. That’s when Charlize admitted that the producer used her name in their harassment.
Theron believes that not only her name used Harvey, but Gwyneth Paltrow or Renee Zellweger. For such a person has no boundaries, he just wants to achieve the desired in any way.
If the court will take into account all the claims, and will be able to prove that Harvey Weinstein is really guilty, he faces life imprisonment.
