Heather Graham and Harvey Weinstein
Recently, Heather Graham reported that back in the early 2000s, movie producer, Harvey Weinstein had asked her to have sex with him in exchange for being included in a movie. She revealed to Variety that he told her, “I want to put you in one of my movies and offered to let me choose which one I liked best. Later in the conversation, he mentioned that he had an agreement with his wife. He could sleep with whomever he wanted when he was out of town. I walked out of the meeting feeling uneasy.” She went on to say that Harvey Weinstein didn’t give in and invited her to his hotel suite. She turned down his offer and said, “I made up an excuse-I had an early morning and would have to postpone. Harvey told me that my actress friend was already at his hotel and that both of them would be very disappointed if I didn’t show up. I knew he was lying, so I politely and apologetically reiterated that I could no longer come by.” Owing to her rejection, Weinstein dropped her as an initial choice for the role and she never starred in any of his films since then. Heather Graham admitted that after the New York Times article that featured Ashley Judd speaking about a similar encounter, she felt ashamed for not having done the same a decade ago. “If I had spoken a decade ago, would I have saved countless women from the same experience I had or worse?” she wondered.
Well, this is definitely a brave move on Heather Graham’s part, as coming forward couldn’t have been easy. Although it was over a decade ago, we believe it’s better late than never. Her story follows the narratives from eight other women who have alleged that Weinstein harassed them in exchange for work. Following this shameful expose, Harvey Weinstein was fired from his own company and his name has been removed from several movie projects and television shows.
