In a 2017 article, the actress, who is part of the cast of the upcoming films ‘Os Eternos’ and ‘Casa Gucci’, stated that she was never physically assaulted by Weinstein for being friends with people like Robert Rodriguez, George Clooney and Quentin. Tarantino.
Asked about this statement by The Guardian, the actress confirmed: “I was also very strong.” I didn’t just say no. She emphasized that I am very strong and should be recognized for that. “He never saw me so fragile. It’s not that he wasn’t afraid, but he couldn’t see himself. I could be scary with my quiet strength, do you understand?”
The actress added that Weinstein, who was sentenced to 23 years in prison in 2020 for rape and sexual assault, was “neither the first nor the last man” to frighten her, stressing that it is a “systematic” problem in Hollywood.
