Until a few weeks back, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was considered a respected name, but not any longer. The man behind blockbuster films like Shakespeare In Love, Gangs Of New York, Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, The Lord Of The Rings Series, Kill Bill (to name a few) has been accused of sexually harassing and raping several women.
Soon, other popular Hollywood actresses like Kate Beckinsale, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, and Gwyneth Paltrow came forward and confirmed that even they have been sexually harassed by him.
But guess what?
It seems Harvey Weinstein had his eyes on Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan too. This was revealed by Simone Sheffield, who used to be the manager of Aishwarya.
Simone revealed that Harvey Weinstein tried very hard to get Aishwarya alone. Harvey told her to leave the meeting numerous times and she politely declined each time. Once he asked Simone what should he do to get Aishwarya alone and she replied ‘kiss my black a**’.
So Harvey Weinstein never threatened Simone Sheffield like he did to others?
He did, revealed Simone. Harvey threatened her and said that he would put her out of business. Simone said that what she replied to Harvey can’t be given in print and signed off by saying that she never gave him the opportunity to ‘even breathe on my client’.
Wish everybody had a manager like Simone.
Simone added that once she and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan returned to the hotel, she sent her a steel pig trough (big container) filled with Diet Coke as a thank you gift for the meeting.
Aishwarya has worked in Hollywood films like The Last Legion and The Pink Panther 2.
Top Hollywood actors like Ben Affleck, Colin Firth, George Clooney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Judi Dench, AOctavia Spencer, Patricia Arquette, Julianne Moore have condemned Harvey Weinstein.
