When Kate Winslet won her Oscar in 2009, she refused to thank Harvey Weinstein, even though she was told to.
Now speaking about the disgraced film producer she says that fact that she’s never going to have to deal with him again as long as she lives is one of the best things that’s ever happened… and she’s sure the feeling in universal.
She went on to call him a bully, and nasty, and rude… and going on a business level, he was very, very hard to deal with.
Back in 2009 Kate won her Oscar for her work in The Reader… and she deliberately omitted Harvey’s name while thanking 19 other people who had helped get her there.
And despite the film’s success… it was the last time she ever worked with Weinstein again.
Winslett made it clear that she was never sexually harassed by Harvey, but there was a whole other can of worms regarding his behavior that she did not want to discuss.
So far, there are over 40 women who claim to have been sexually harassed, assaulted, or raped by the mogul.
