Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein pleaded to be given a second chance as he was seen leaving the LA home of his daughter Remy. Weinstein was to enter an Arizona rehab for his sexual assault and harassment issues. The accusations from actresses and former employees keep piling up as it appears Weinstein’s assaults on women were farther spread than imagined.
TMZ was outside the house hoping to speak with the Hollywood mogul. He gave them a couple minutes of his time. When asked if he was okay, Weinstein said, “I’m hanging in. I’m trying my best.” “I’m not doing okay, but I’m trying. I gotta get help,” the Democratic mega-donor continued. He also attempted to ingratiate himself with the paparazzi. “Not like those f**king pricks who treat you like s**t,” he said.
“We all make mistakes. Second chance, I hope,” he also told TMZ. But, Harvey might not want to hold his breath for a second chance. His wife has announced she is leaving him after he stated she was 100% behind him. Given his age and the disgust of Americans, Weinstein would likely be viewed as a liability even by Hollywood’s low standards. Now that the FBI is investigating him, he might end up in jail or abroad, like disgraced child rapist and Hollywood icon Roman Polanski.
Earlier on Wednesday, Weinstein’s daughter Remy called police because her father was suicidal. TMZ was there to capture that on video as well. Remy later walked back her concerns about her father taking his own life. Video of that is below.
Italian actress Asia Argento wrote and directed a scene in 1997 that resembled her assault by Weinstein. Horrifyingly, many actresses recognized the character as being Harvey because of their own experiences with him. You can see that video below. The language is not safe for work or little ears.
It’s possible that Weinstein might soil the reputation of Michelle and Barack Obama as well. It is hard pressed to believe that the Obama’s Hollywood friends wouldn’t have warned them about the predator when their daughter Malia went to work for The Weinstein Company. Click here to read about that!
