    Harvey Weinstein: I offered acting jobs in exchange for sex

    Disgraced Hollywood executive admitted to offering acting jobs to actresses in exchange for sex, but claims 'so does everyone.'

    Harvey Weinstein admitted for the first time that he did offer actresses acting jobs in exchange for sex, but said he's not the only one doing so.

    The disgraced movie mogul, who pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges in June, told the Spectator his behavior is the norm in Hollywood.

    "You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome. I was born poor, ugly, Jewish and had to fight all my life to get somewhere," Weinstein told Taki of the Spectator. "You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood."

    He then admitted, "Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone. But I never, ever forced myself on a single woman."

    Weinstein, accompanied by his lawyer Ben Brafman, also alleged that two of his most outspoken accusers, Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, were lying when McGowan claimed Argento had an open relationship with late boyfriend Anthony Bourdain.

    "Her friend McGowan claimed that Asia and Anthony had an open relationship," Taki wrote of his conversation with Weinstein. "It was obviously not true, says Harvey, but dead men tell no tales, so the girls made it up."

    The interview comes nearly two months after Weinstein entered a not guilty plea at a New York courthouse on June 5, when he was arraigned on rape and criminal sex act charges.

    The hearing in Manhattan came after a grand jury indicted the former movie mogul on charges involving two women.

    One alleged victim, who has not been identified publicly, told investigators that Weinstein cornered her in a hotel room and raped her. The other accuser, former actress Lucia Evans, has gone public with her account of Weinstein allegedly forcing her to perform oral sex at his office in 2004.

    Dozens more women have accused him of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault.

    The 66-year-old Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. His lawyer has challenged the credibility of his alleged victims and says his client is confident he is going to clear his name.

    Brafman called the rape allegation "absurd," saying that the accuser and Weinstein had a decade-long, consensual sexual relationship that continued after the alleged 2013 attack.

    Weinstein is out on $1 million bail.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    This is position of power for any industry, but dont think some of these women aren't doing this purposely to get a roll or opportunity.

    I will never, ever understand the sheer suspension of risk management that a male goes through to conclude that it is a grand idea to force someone to perform oral sex on him.

    You know too many times I'd see a hot woman with terrible acting skills and wonder how that was even possible. Hollywood is full of actors; directors have technology that allow them to reshoot; how in the world do bad actors make it to the screen? Well now we know.



    Also I bet Harvey gets a royalty check this month that would take me years to match. You know nothing will come from this and he's going to live a life you couldn't ever dream of.

    Really, you’re just now learning this?
    You wanna guess how most successful attractive female musicians got their start? Even the talented ones.

    While I think he is a scumbag, I believe Harvey when he said he was not unique. What self-respecting woman would willingly do Spike Lee or Quentin Tarantino?

    Yeah, I believe him too when he says it's an industry full of scumbags. In some ways, you can argue he was just the logical outcome of the godless hedonism that defines the industry.
