Emma Thompson very firmly believes Harvey Weinstein is a sexual predator, not a sex addict, and that he is far from the only one in Hollywood.
Like many of the women and men who have spoken out since the New York Times and New Yorker exposés unearthed decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse at the hands of the powerful Hollywood movie mogul, the British actress says she didn't know about the accusations. She does, however, know firsthand about Weinstein's "bullying" behavior, which is why hearing the stories now doesn't come as a surprise.
His Miramax studio at one point owned the 2005 family film she starred in, Nanny McPhee. "They were very difficult and obstructive, because his bullying behavior patterns also existed in his business world," she said during a 12-minute sitdown on BBC's Newsnight with Emily Maitlis. "So my main contact with him was shouting at him down the phone that I never wanted to work with him ever, ever, ever." After calling him out, she says he looked "frightened" and avoided her during business meetings. "Whenever I was in a room with him, he gave off the most appalling aura."
