Eva Green (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Penny Dreadful) recently joined the ever growing list of Hollywood starlets to lob accusations of impropriety at producer Harvey Weinstein. Eva says she was left “shocked and disgusted” by an incident in which Weinstein made an inappropriate advance. Green’s mother talked about her daughter’s experience with Weinstein in a French radio interview Friday, and Green has now broken her silence on the matter.
“I have not discussed this before because I wanted to maintain my privacy, but I understand it is important to do so as I hear about other women’s experiences. Women are often condemned when they speak out and their personal reputations tarnished by association.
“I salute the great bravery of the women who have come forward. We should recognize that this sort of behavior exists everywhere and is not unique to the entertainment industry. The exploitation of power is ubiquitous. This behavior is unacceptable and needs to be eliminated.”
