The Queen Is Not Amused

Meryl Streep is firing back at Harvey Weinstein after the disgraced film mogul’s lawyers used her name and one of her statements in an attempt to dismiss a sexual misconduct lawsuit against him, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Wednesday. “Harvey Weinstein’s attorneys’ use of my (true) statement — that he was not sexually transgressive or physically abusive in our business relationship — as evidence that he was not abusive with many OTHER women is pathetic and exploitive,” Streep said in a statement. “The criminal actions he is accused of conducting on the bodies of these women are his responsibility, and if there is any justice left in the system he will pay for them — regardless of how many good movies, made by many good people, Harvey was lucky enough to have acquired or financed.”
