‘Full of sh*t’! Kate Winslet gets THROTTLED for her Harvey Weinstein hypocrisy
In case you missed it, Kate Winslet recently joined the chorus of actresses denouncing Harvey Weinstein for his sick sexual predation:
Here’s Winslet’s full statement:
“The fact that these women are starting to speak out about the gross misconduct of one of our most important and well regarded film producers, is incredibly brave and has been deeply shocking to hear. The way Harvey Weinstein has treated these vulnerable, talented young women is NOT the way women should ever EVER deem to be acceptable or commonplace in ANY workplace.
“I have no doubt that for these women this time has been, and continues to be extremely traumatic. I fully embrace and salute their profound courage, and I unequivocally support this level of very necessary exposure of someone who has behaved in reprehensible and disgusting ways. His behaviour is without question disgraceful and appalling and very, very wrong. I had hoped that these kind of stories were just made up rumours, maybe we have all been naïve. And it makes me so angry. There must be ‘no tolerance’ of this degrading, vile treatment of women in ANY workplace anywhere in the world.”
Winslet’s right: The offenses of which Weinstein is accused are disgraceful, appalling, degrading, and vile. Which raises an important question: If Weinstein so repulses her, why is she cool working with other members of the Hollywood Sexual Predator Club?
Not only is Winslet starring in Woody Allen’s upcoming film, but she recently defended him — and Roman Polanski, for good measure:
Did the allegations against Woody Allen give you pause?
Of course one thinks about it. But at the same time, I didn’t know Woody and I don’t know anything about that family. As the actor in the film, you just have to step away and say, I don’t know anything, really, and whether any of it is true or false. Having thought it all through, you put it to one side and just work with the person. Woody Allen is an incredible director. So is Roman Polanski. I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that’s the truth.
So it turns out that “hypocrite” is also spelled K-A-T-E-W-I-N-S-L-E-T. Who knew?
